Want to Quit Your Job and Work for Yourself?
I want to open up this post with an important question: are you living your passion?
If not, it is time to find what is that you love doing. Knowing what is your purpose, your passion, will give a different meaning for your life. It will give you your WHY. And to become successful in the thing that you are doing you need to know why you are doing it.
Let's dig deeper. Do you love your job? Is your job able to provide you the things in life that you desire? Does it allow you the live the lifestyle you want to live?
Changes are you are actually not living the lifestyle of your dreams, because most people think it is impossible to that all year rounds. That's why they are called dreams right? WRONG!
What if I told you could create your dream lifestyle, no matter how crazy it may sound? Are you a business guy who would actually love to travel and surf? Or are you a mom who would want to stay home with your kids? Not a problem! I have found (and use) a solution how to do that: becoming an entrepreneur. And not just what ever entrepreneur, but a FREEDOM-Preneur! So what is a freedom-preneur?
First, freedom has many different meanings to people. What I refer to as a freedom is being able to do what you want, when you want, with who you want, and where you want. For me having freedom is living my dream lifestyle instead of just hoping to have it. And this of course comes back to your why. Freedom is about knowing what it is that you really want. So many of us are going after what we think we should want and as a result our wants are blind and not self-fulfilling.
Entrepreneurs are known for being in business, sharing their techniques and secrets of building a business before others know how. A Freedom-Preneur is about being free and before others know how to do it. Why would we have a business for if not the idea of freedom?
Often, if not too often, we forget to open our minds for new opportunities or possibilities because we only know the one way we learned to get what we want. You need to defy that idea so that the focus is your freedom and not the business aspect. The entrepreneur side is important, but that will come so no need to worry. In becoming a Freedom-Preneur you must know what you want to do, where you want to do it and when you want to do it.
This is your life we are talking about and despite the popular belief, your life is not a business. Ask yourself the following questions:
* What do you really want to do?
* What are your passion and your gift?
* Where would you like to live that passion out?
* What country, setting or at least type of weather?
* Who do you want to be around?
* What times of day do you want to be doing what?
So how do you confidently make the swap from being corporate employee to entrepreneur?
Dream, vision, courage and massive action!
