Before anything can happen, some type of action has to take place. We have all arrived where we are due to the choices we have made and the actions we have taken.
If you are not where you want to be in life, then you have to take the proper actions to make a change.
No too long ago, I definitely was NOT where I wanted to be in life. After working in the corporate world for over 25 years I was laid off. Due to the economic situation in the area, there were no other jobs in my field available.
If that wasn’t bad enough, when I looked at my retirement investments, they were not growing at all. The miracle of compounding interest did not take place in my case.
Up to that point, I thought I had done everything right:
- I got good grades in school
- Graduated with a BS degree from university
- Worked in the corporate world for a good salary
- Saved 10% of my earnings in retirement funds
So where did I go wrong? I was following the plan that was given to me while growing up, yet I was not where I wanted to be.
I had a decision to make. I could move to a new area and get another job like I had before or do something different.
As Albert Einstein said:
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
In my case, the decision to start my online business wasn’t easy. It meant turning my back on all those years of schooling and work experience and starting anew. It meant learning a whole new set of skills. But in the end, I know that it was the right decision.
You may not be in exactly the same situation I was in, but if you aren’t where you expected to be at this point in your life, start looking for ways to change your situation.
You may just dread going into work some days. You may feel that you have no other options. That isn’t the case! You can always work toward building a different future. It just takes action on your part.
Don’t wait until you get to the point where I was, start taking action now!
You don’t have to make a drastic change. You can start your own business in your spare time (you know, instead of watching those reruns of your favorite sitcom).
Many people have started businesses part time that have gone on to replace their current jobs. You can too!
Everything that happens in our lives is due to the actions we have taken. The next time you you feel unhappy about your circumstances, look back at the actions you have taken to change your situation.
You are the CEO of your life. You are the only one who can decide on the course your life will take and do what is required to get there.
