If you are determined to enhance your quality of life to a whole new level, would you agree it is crucial you choose something you are going to embrace and love?
Every time I began something I was not enthusiastic about, I found it a lot more challenging and a lot more stressful.
I remember seeking the next job, career or business opportunity only to find out that I was enthusiastic to start, but then I realised that quality of life is not about being enthusiastic for a short time, quality of life is about being enthusiastic at all times.
Have you ever felt that when your passion and your mission are aligned, you wake up in the morning feeling a lot happier and joyful?
It has been a general belief that making money is the only motivation to start something new, but nothing could be further than the truth.
In the past, whenever I started a new job or business opportunity, I thought all I needed to do was to learn some skills to earn extra money. My mindset was to give it a try, to see how it went, and then, I wonder why it never worked.
Going through personal growth has been a great help to me. I have been learning how to work on my mind, beliefs and focusing on more important things in my life and my work.
It not about trying to make some money in a short period, it is about making a firm commitment to getting the education and do the work that will take my life to a new level.
When my circumstances suddenly changed, I got a wake-up call. I knew it was time to get serious about improving my situation.
Sir Richard Branson, who is one of my mentors, says in his Virgin’s newsletter:
“When starting a new business remember the business itself is an adventure. Starting up is often tough and having a great deal of passion means that you’ll persist when things seem like they are not going your way.
What is the thing that drives you? If the answer is ‘to make money,’ I can tell you now that it is probably not enough to keep hanging in there. Running your own enterprise gives you an unrivalled opportunity to do something you love while enjoying the journey. Good luck!”
This advice is powerful because every time I do something I am passionate about, something that is bigger than myself, that I visualise to be the next phase of my life, I always find that I have the energy and dedication to work on that project.
When I was a young girl, I always dreamt of exploring different cultures; in particular England. Back then, nobody in my family travelled around Mexico, let alone to a foreign country.
My family didn’t have the means to pay for that trip, and I couldn’t speak a word of English. But it was something I wanted to do. I didn’t know how or when but the dream was there.
I became a Bilingual Secretary to learn some English and to save money as fast as I could. The job was not satisfying, but the dream of saving for that trip was what kept me going. After a couple of years, I saved enough, and since an English family accepted me as an Au Pair, I had somewhere to live during my stay. My dream became a reality.
On my return from England, I had to find a job but the only qualifications I had at the time was to apply for another secretarial job. I never had any desire to become a secretary; I chose it because it was a short career and a fast way to save money.
It was easy to find the new job, but this time the flame had gone off. It wasn’t fulfilling. Besides, I never enjoyed the constraints of a traditional job.
However, it served me in other areas. Such as learning to type fast, organisation, administration skills, office procedures and meeting friendly people.
Maybe you are already a high achiever; you have a career or job that is satisfying but demanding.
Perhaps you have been considering taking those skills and expertise to a new level, and with the right mindset, they will serve you well in today’s digital world.
It has been over a year since I started my online business, except this time I am committed to sticking with it. I have been learning a lot and going through challenging times.
But thanks to the company’s lifestyle blueprint process which is part of their training modules, I have come up with a plan that is enabling me to align with a bigger vision, getting inspired of what I am looking to achieve which is relevant to the business model I am building.
What about yourself? What is it that you want to achieve? Do you have any dreams that you want to fulfil?
