When you ask people what they want, the answer usually has something to do with money. Whether it’s to go on a vacation, or afford a child’s baseball, or to own their own home, the answer can more than likely be achieved with more money.
People look at the money coming in each month from their job and they look at the money going out each month to pay their debts. They realize that the money coming in is capped by their job – the source of their income. And they realize that their responsibilities, at some level are fixed as well, and more than likely, going up.
You have a 3rd grader now? Well guess what? In 9 years, they are going to be driving and want a car. And in 11 years, they are going to be ready to go to college. How are you going to afford that?!
People play these monologues in their heads (or if they are really lucky, they hear it out loud from those that are supposed to be their support system), they get discouraged because they realize they will never get that vacation, they will never live in their “forever home”, they will never be able to retire, etc. And they just accept it as truth.
So how do you get out of that cycle?
Your only job is to answer the door when opportunity knocks.
I’ll say that again.
To get out of that cycle, the only thing you have to do is realize when opportunity is presenting itself and go with it.
You don’t have to see all the way to the end. You don’t have to know exactly where it’s leading you, but you have to follow the opportunity.
Think about this. Say you’re driving from Atlanta to Los Angeles. When you travel at night, your headlights only go 100-200 feet in front of you, right? But you trust that the next 200 feet will be there when you get there. Same idea. You just need to make the first step. And then the next one. And then the next one. And then the next one. Eventually, you will see where you’re going…where you ARE.
If you’re reading this right now, there is an opportunity is staring you in the face.
It is not your job to question. It is not your job to talk yourself out of it. It is not your job to decide that because you can’t see the final outcome of this one step, you’re not going to take it. Your job, if you want things to change, is to recognize an opportunity, even if it’s not in the form you thought it would come in, even if it takes you far away from your comfort zone…your job is to recognize opportunity, seize it and hold on for the ride.
When I tell people this, they look at me with wide eyes.
Is what she is saying true? HELL YES, IT’S 100% TRUE!
Do you think I ever saw myself running a successful international business from my house? Do you think I ever saw myself empowering women across the globe? Do you think I ever saw myself being able to be home with my kids while also being financially secure and independent? The answer to all of those is no. I never thought this was where my life was going, and if I had, I probably wouldn’t have gotten that fine art degree. To be completely honest, I wasn’t even sure I would ever find my husband. And then I never thought I would be a mother. But I am.
I run a successful international company online from my house. I reach women across the globe and show them how they can have this life. I empower women on every continent to take control of their lives and show them how to make it happen. I am at home right at this very moment, writing this as my 2-year-old naps upstairs. I am able to provide for myself, and even though I am married, I am financially secure on my own.
I am all of these things because when an opportunity was placed in front of me, in the most unlikely form, I grabbed it with both hands. And I’m still hanging on.
If you’re ready to take a chance, I’m ready to show you the opportunity that is already in your lap. Grab the opportunity here.
