If Columbus hadn’t envisioned a far-away world, he never would have set sail. Yes, there were rough seas at times. Lots of people thought he was taking a big risk. But he kept his mind on his goal and kept sailing. Columbus surprised himself. Instead of finding a shorter route to the spices of the far east, he discovered a land that was rich beyond anyone’s expectations – America!
I think everyone needs a vision about what they would like their life to look like. Do they want to drive a junker forever? Live in a tiny apartment? Work themselves to exhaustion for someone who shows their appreciation with a $10 turkey at Thanksgiving?
The Power of Vision:
As you think about beginning your own home business, the “vision thing” is important for you, too. What kind of life do YOU envision? If you’ve never dared to get out of your comfort zone, even in your thoughts, here are some very realistic “visions” of the kind of life a home-based business can bring you…
- Visualize being able to work flexible hours in the comfort and privacy of your own home, with no commute and no dress code.
- Think about not having to spend 40 or more hours a week with that particularly annoying coworker who seems more like a cell-mate.
- Imagine not having to beg for time off to do something so simple but so all- important as cheering at your son’s big playoff game or attending your daughter’s school play.
- Imagine taking your family on trips to places you never dreamed you’d see. You won’t have to ask anyone for the vacation time, of course!
I urge you to think about how much better life could be for you and for your family. I also urge you to take advantage of this remarkable opportunity to become your own boss, a self-confident entrepreneur living up to your full potential.
