Build a Business – Life is Too Short to be Miserable

There are many circumstances that may have developed in your life where you were not quite able to reach your maximum potential. You may have had desires and imagined possibilities that never really materialized for one reason or another.
don't worry be happy

Of course happiness and self-esteem come from within and can be present no matter what your circumstances, but sometimes you really wish you could do more than you are doing. Many times we are forced to accept what is available to survive. Although we should be very thankful that we do have options, if there are an opportunities to create a higher level of happiness and satisfaction, why not go for it?

So you are forced to work on the hamster wheel and have a job you don’t particularly enjoy just to make money to survive. Again you are blessed to have options, so right there things are not that bad. However things can add up over time that can affect your feelings of well-being and satisfaction with your life. You spend most of your waking hours at your job so these issues can become significant.

Examples would be like a hostile environment due to corporate politics, not making enough money to really ever get ahead, no opportunities for any possible growth, and even potential problems with the financial health of the company you work for to worry about.

With all that said in this day and age people just don’t run out and quit their job. They live with it and may do a lot of praying that things don’t implode and at least will stay as good as they are. This is all well and good. However there are still options to improve your lot!

You can create something on your own in your spare time that can represent additional income as well as an environment where you feel you are in control and being creative. Those things can really make you feel better about yourself. Seriously they can really make a big difference to your own psychological bottom line.

With the Internet there are unlimited possibilities and free information available on how you might discover something that you would like to do that could help you in many ways. It may involve starting a business around one of your hobbies or interests, developing office services online using your job skills, or selling products for already established companies.

If you want to try something different, there is no big investment involved so you are free to try a few things that may allow you to accomplish more in your life than you are!


Keep it Real With Your New Year’s Resolutions

Just like your target goals, if you make them unrealistically high, you will do nothing but disappoint and discourage yourself when it is not possible to meet your expectations. This surely does not engender the motivation you need to develop a business. Keep your goals and resolutions doable. Think logically rather than to ‘shoot for the moon’.

keep it real!

There will be obstacles in any new endeavor and there will be times when you can’t see any results yet. This is just such a time when your awareness that you have not met your goals will start to weigh on you. You need to arm yourself with coping mechanisms like being realistic, that will allow you to stay positive no matter what it looks like.

One important thing to remember is it is not about one campaign or one weekend of working to promote your business. It is about being consistent over time. Although it is commendable that you took action you have to realize it is almost nothing in the grand scope of things. This is working hard vs hardly working. Take that one thing you did or those few days you expended some energy toward developing your business and use it as a plan for what you need to do all the time, maybe for a long time in order to see substantial results.

You can break your resolutions down into logical stages or levels just like your target goals. You can have short, medium and long-term goals that are achievable. To break this down into an easy example, you might aim to earn $100 a month in the short-term and plan to achieve $200 a month at 6-months in and plan on $400 in one-year. If you keep on extrapolating, (and working steadily) in a few years you will have a nice income from your home business.

This is definitely not to say everyone could progress at this level, but keep in mind it is proportionate to how much effort you can invest. Maybe if your level of action is lukewarm for example you should make your goals, $50, $100, $200 – Still doubling but at a lower amount. It’s all good. You are not competing with anybody but yourself.

Just remember, ‘nothing ventured, nothing gained’. You have to be really realistic about how much effort you are really making. It is sad yet comical to hear people whine and moan about having done so much work and not to see results yet. When you ask what they did it is almost nothing. This is sad because the person has magical thinking and expects something for nothing. It’s not logical to think you will get something for nothing. You should realize you need to be doing the work to build a business slowly and steadily over time. This is the way it is for most legitimate businesses in reality.
