Should I quit my Job? Tips and Advice #2  – What is your Why? Finding your core motivations

What is your why? Why are you looking to quit your job? Why do you want to start your own business? What is your why, business owners?

By this time we have already spoken about embracing your current situation, accepting the present and moving onto your future by breaking the chains of your life-consuming  job saying “goodbye job. Today I leave you in the past” and starting your own business.

The next step now is understanding Your Why, your core motivations.

Some of you might have heard or read this question before and you probably know what your why is, or perhaps you may not even know what I actually mean when I ask you “what is your why?”.

So let’s Start with Why

Why is a simple but yet, powerful word. I used to be the “why” little girl with an endless curiosity that questioned everything and everyone around me.

In fact, the word Why has had a powerful effect  on each stage of my life, from helping me understand things and people better, to helping me make decisions -sometimes big decisions- to also causing conflicts that made me wonder the true nature of human beings. For example, when I was 14, on my last year of high school, it was suggested (more mandatory than suggested but anyway) that we do the confirmation before we ended school. So I attended the “confirmation weekly meetings” at my school’s catholic church.

At a certain point we would read the bible,  there were so many things coming out of that book and so many things said (according to their own interpretation that it just did not resonated with my own beliefs, I could not comprehend WHY they were saying what they were saying, so I would ask questions out of genuine curiosity because I truthfully wanted to understand their Why)  This landed me being told that the devil was within me because I was asking too many why’s and I was sent to pray 12 ave maria’s & “holy father’s prayer.

Maybe someone wiser would have been able to handle my questions smartly but anyway this has been a huge introduction so let’s keep things rolling…

When I ask you “what is your why?” what is the first thing that you think about? Is it maybe something like Why do I do what I do? Why am I here on this planet? Why do I want to quit my job? Why do I really want to start my own business?  Why did I create my company? Why do I wake up every morning? Why do I do what I do?

 

WHY  do I ask so many questions??

Because I am convinced that understanding Your Why is VITAL, crucial,  mandatory not only in your business, but in your life.

For example, Simon Sinek with his best seller Start with Why, verbalizes the principles of understanding you why, and provides you with examples of big companies that understand their why and are now SUCCEEDING in business (i.e.: apple). On the other hand, Anthony Robbins himself is the ‘Why man’. He is passionate about understanding the human behavior and Why we do what we do?,  if you have read any of his books or listened to any of his audios like “Get To The Edge and Live with Passion” you will perfectly understand what I mean.

Before starting or getting into business, one first must understand at heart what matters to people as human beings.

Why?

Because people are not business. Business is people and… people don’t follow what you do but WHY you do it.

Having a strong why, is like having a strong foundation for what it is that you want to build. Also because if you don’t have a strong reason WHY you are doing something, then why should you keep doing it?

Your why becomes your passion and when your enthusiasm is evident, people want a ticket to your happy train.  Understand your Why and you would have harnessed your passion.

Your Why is going to be your armour and your spade, making you invincible  when the time comes to face challenges.  Only when you find and understand your why you will find the courage to take risks, to take massive action and get ahead. On the other side, it is really easy to quit something when you don’t know why you are doing it.

As Frederick Nietzsche said:

what is your why he who has a why can endure anyhow ameli antoinette wealthypreneurs nietzsche

If something doesn’t matter, if something doesn’t have a powerful why, or that vision and essence within it. People will not be motivated to follow it. Remember, people operate on motivation.

 

How do I find my why?

As an entrepreneur and business owner your why MUST be something you totally believe in, something you are passionate about, something you love, something that inspires you or something you are willing to fight for, no matter what. Something that when you talk about, someone else can see the passion and the fire in your eyes. Something that gives you a sense of drive and purpose.

So please, ask yourself again “what is my why?” “Why do I want to start my own business?”.  Write your little own story and then ask yourself again “Why?” and answer it with “Because…”. Do this over and over again until you get to your main reason. Your core.  Your inspiration. Your heart. That moment when something hits you and your heart is pumping hard or tears start rolling down your face or you just can’t stop laughing. Just get there, get to your core and find your answers.

Yes, understanding your why is a journey within yourself. So you just need to let things flow, forget about being self-aware, just let it flow and take your time. Stop only when you know you have gotten to your core.

Trust me, You’ll know when you’ve gotten to your real why. You will feel it.

Now I’m going to do a short example with my own story. Replace my story with yours and then carry on with the exercise :)….

Here we go.

A brief summary of my story:

I inspire, motivate, and mentor people to take inspired action to become entrepreneurs  and create a business and a lifestyle they love. I mentor entrepreneurs to strategically manage their businesses  so they can have the time-freedom and the abundance to create a life they love next to their love ones.

  • Why?
    Because I have experienced the pain of working on a job that consumed my life and it didn’t give me the chance to spend valuable time with the most important person in the world, my mum.
  • Why?
    Because I’ve learnt through the loss of my mom -and my own self- that there are more important things in life than just a fancy job, a status and a great salary. So I use the skills I’ve gained and my experience as my platform.
  • Why?
    Because I care about people, their situations, their jobs and their professions and how they can improve their lives  and I wish everyone to be happy, what really matters to me is them and their lives even If I don’t know them. If I can do something to help them better their lives I am happy and at peace with myself.
  • Why?
    Because I was there once. I was scared, I wanted to do something different but I didn’t know what to do. I thought I only know so much and that my Doctor’s skills were limiting the possibilities of starting another career, let alone starting my own business. I felt lost and confused but I was too scared to ask and I wished someone guided me during those uncertain moments. So I am that person now, the older sister, the mentor, the soul spoken woman that walks them to create the business of their lives.
  • Why?
    Because I know EVERYONE has the skills and what is needed within themselves to create a business and a lifestyle they love, this is a world of endless possibilities that we all have access to, and I Believe anyone can do it if they have the right guidance.
  • Why?
    Because I come from that place where I was surrounded by the most beautiful love and care, where the perception of obstacles were seem as challenges to have fun with. Where, even when the doctors said I would be blind, deaf and with cognitive problems. I had a woman who walked me through all of the challenges imagined with the upmost strength. A woman who challenged the status quo and society when times were mean to single mothers. A woman who ran her own business and sat strong and lovingly in front of her patients only a couple of days before passing away, a woman who touched and changed many lives, a woman that with the power of her love and belief made me who I am now.
  • Why?
    Because it was with my mother that I learnt to believe in others and that there isn’t anything more powerful than genuine courageous love to help, to serve.
  • Why?
    Because to me this is more than just business, this is about the people and the lives I know I can impact to make a difference and help make this world a better place.
  • Why?
    Because that is where my heart is. It makes me feel happy and blessed. This is my purpose.

** If you’re asking yourself  “What is my purpose in life?”  Then read this Quick guide to finding your purpose in life in 5 minutes.**

If you continue without having this question answered  on at least 6 different levels  down, a couple of things can happen; either you find yourself hating what you’re doing or your life or, you will just quit when things get tough, or you will continue to pursue the next big deal.  There are more examples but in synthesis those are my examples.

 

Not sure what you are passionate about?

Asking why and understanding it will unveil the real you. It is the purpose behind everything you do. If you’re looking at some clues as to your whys then look over your old journals, your facebook statuses, fb posts, tweets, older blogs. Pay attention to conversation with your friends or family, to what you watch on TV, to the podcasts or radio stations you listen to, to the books you read.

Remember that box full of pictures and articles about the places you want to visit before you die?, or the notes from years ago where you wrote your dreams and potential business ideas. Poll your relatives, family and childhood and closest friends how you were when you were a child. Examine the challenges you have overcome and how you overcome them.

Why?

Because the better you know and understand yourself, the better and more successful you will be in business.

and well… why not?

You owe it to yourself to start doing what you really want to do, to start living the life you want to live, to create both a business and a lifestyle you love so get on your way! Start by understanding your why and your core motivations.

Love & Light,

Should I Quit My Job? – Tips & Advice Before Quitting Your Job. Tip #1

Tip & Advice Before Quitting Your Job. Tip #1: Embrace Your Situation

Have you ever find yourself asking yourself “Should I Quit My Job?”, should I -perhaps- change careers? Should I do something different to what I am already doing?

If you’re here reading this right now, you have obviously had. In fact, that was me on those mornings when I would woke up bright and early to go to work.  I loved my career, but there was something missing. It wasn’t fulfilling anymore.

Something within myself was saying –screaming sometimes- STOP IT! This is not what you want to be doing for the rest of your life! You weren’t born for this! You were born for so much more than being stuck at work 15+ hours a day. Of course this doesn’t include the commuting time which fluctuated between 1 -3 hours a day.

According to some statistics gathered by business insider if we add up all of the time the average person spends working, it would make 90’000 HOURS of WORK over their lifetime.

Yes, you read that correctly: Ninety thousand hours of non-stop work during your lifetime. That is 3’750 DAYS which makes 10.3 YEARS of Your life working.

10.3 Years!!

Imagine yourself working for over a decade of your life, non stop, with no breaks from dawn to dawn, just  like robots.

It sounds more like a sci-fi movie and it may be hard to imagine it happening in the real world but unfortunately, that is the reality for most of people except that instead of working for over a decade non-stop, they work with breaks in between, with a 7-10 day holiday a year, where they don’t even get to rest so, eventually,  they spend most of their lifetime working, ending up stressed, overloaded, unfulfilled.

Oh but this is only the beginning my dear because on top of that, the reality in numbers goes like this:

  • 80% of people is dissatisfied with their current job. (source: Business Insider- Deloitte shift index survey)

  • 25% of employees say work is their main source of stress and 40% say their job is “very or extremely stressful (CDC statistics)

  • 64% of Americans canceled vacations last year. One-third did it for work-related reasons even though most felt they were more in need of a vacation than the year before

  • You spend 90% of your lifetime, INDOORS, most of it at work . That’s 71 out of 79 years.

Do you get the picture? This stuff is real. So it is of no wonder why SOME people like You and I fall in to the realization that there definitely is SOMETHING MORE, something better and more meaningful to do with your life. Something fulfilling that gives you the joy to do what you love, with whom you love, wherever you choose to be while still generating an income.

It is of no wonder why some of Us, then, wake up and start asking ourselves: Should I quit my job? Should I make a career change? Should I start my own business?.

 

That’s why I decided to create this video training series: “Should I Quit My Job? Tips and Advice You Should Consider before quitting Your Job.

So within the following days/weeks I will be giving you – excuse the redundancy- the tips & advice you need to consider before quitting your job. Today we are starting with Tip#1 and that is, “Embrace Your Situation”. Of course there is more to just embracing your situation, but that is something you’ll learn in the video. So… here it is 🙂

To watch the video on my facebook page, click here. Feel free to like, share and leave some comments.

See you tomorrow for Tip# 2 that you should consider before quitting your job.

A Quick Guide To Finding Your Purpose in Life in 5 Minutes

Have you ever asked yourself “What is my life purpose?”,
or “how do I find my purpose in life?”. I bet you have….

I have, and it has been a whole transition to finally
meet and understand my life purpose. It can be confusing
at times, specially when you really love helping people
but what you want to do does not align with what -at that
certain moment- you know. Does that make sense to you?

Let me explain: As a Medical Doctor, I LOVED taking care
of my patients, I am a nurturing person by nature BUT
by doing this I was leaving behind other areas of my life
like, my family. Specifically, my Mum.

Also, I was leaving behind my own freedom. Which to
me meant having the ability to travel and visit new places,
or just taking my mum out for dinner without worrying about
my schedules. Instead, I spent most of my time on my shifts,
day ant night, sometimes without even seeing my mum or
dedicating some time to myself. See, everything needs to be
in balance.

Eventually -if you know my story- my mother passed away
and everything happened very quickly. Within 21 days.
Sometimes life hits us HARD, but sometimes WE NEED
those hits to make us get out of our own “dope cycle”,
the “rat race” – you name it-.

So I decided to do something different, I didn’t know what
but I knew I Had to…. long story short and fast forwarding
I became an Online Entrepreneur. My business aligns
to my Life Purpose which is: Helping others transform
their lives, creating a life of Total Fulfillment.

So, HOW DO YOU FIND YOUR LIFE PURPOSE?

It is actually very easy to find your life purpose, in fact,
it is easier than we think. But as adults we tend  to look
for the complicated and intricated things that we wind
up making everything unnecessarily complex.

Yes, it is good to examine your life and see how things
are going every certain time BUT, if you spend most of
your time examining your life, then you are not living!
And… what’s the point of that??

Life is meant to be LIVEDLife-is-meant-to-be-lived-wealthypreneurs.

A Quick Guide To Finding Your Purpose in Life in 5 Minutes

This is how you can know your life purpose in the next 5 minutes:

The Power of Goal Setting: 8 Golden Rules For Success

What is the Power of goal setting?

Well, everything starts as an idea that then,
with the right amount of work, will materialize.
When we set goals, we are are designing the
future in advance, we are creating our destiny.

Your goals need to be so strong that you look forward
every morning to get out of bed and work on them.

There’s no right or wrong when setting your own goals
the only condition is that they HAVE TO inspire you,
they have to be compelling so that when things go hard
they motivate you to keep going and when you attain them
they help you grow and become a better person.

Your goals should be in alignment with your values and
are created specifically to transform your life and bring
it to the next level.

HOW TO SET COMPELLING, INSPIRING GOALS

In order to set compelling and  inspiring goals, these are the
golden rules you need to follow:

Have Clear Goals and a Clear Plan of Action Wealthypreneurs

  1. CLARITY. Your goals need to be clear, detailed
    and as specific as you can make them. The detailed
    they are, the better. Also, you must have a specific
    plan of action for their attainment.
    In other words, HAVE A CLEAR VISION & A CLEAR PLAN.2
  2. KNOW YOUR WHY. This Step is VITAL because
    You can have all of the resources you need, the books,
    the information, the people, the support, everything
    you need to succeed with your goals BUT if you don’t
    know WHY you are doing it, if you don’t know WHY
    you are moving towards your goals, then it is rare that
    you are going to succeed.
    So ask yourself, WHY do I want to achieve this goals?
    What is the main reason I created them?
    You must be absolutely clear about your why,Know HOW, plan of action wealthypreneurs goal setting
  3. KNOW YOUR HOW. This step is as important as
    knowing your why. You MUST have a plan of action,
    know HOW you are going to make those goals happen.
    In order to know which direction you are going to take,
    you must know where you are at. So have a plan of action,
    a strategy, this doesn’t mean that once you develop your
    plan of action it will stay like that forever, no! You need
    to be flexible, and it is for sure that along the way some
    things will change, so leave room for improvement.believe and have faith goal setting wealthypreneurs
  4. BELIEVE & HAVE FAITH. Once you have a clear
    mental image of what your goals are,  the plan of action
    you are going to follow and you know why you are going
    to pursue this goals, you MUST have absolute total faith
    and trust that you WILL Do it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m
    not saying “all you need is believe, trust & pixie dust”
    but just know that YOU MUST Believe in Yourself, in Your
    goals, in that no matter what happens, you will succeed!.Think outside the box wealthypreneurs be creative goal setting
  5. THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. I am sure that you have
    probably heard about the SMART goals. A lot of people
    talk about them. I like them, is a good foundation but I do
    not agree with them at all. WHY? This is Why…
    I don’t agree with the “Realistic” side of having Smart goals
    because when you think “realistically” you are limiting
    yourself and the endless possibilities in the universe.
    Because when you think “real” you are basing your future
    on past experiences and if you base your future based on
    the past you’re simply going to get anywhere.
    Just be creative when setting your goals, there are no limits.
    Be BOLD and create exciting, compelling goals.Keep a daily review journal goal setting wealthypreneurs
  6. KEEP A DAILY REVIEW JOURNAL,
    Yes… keep a journal from moment zero, from
    the very very beginning. Do you remember that
    I  previously said everything starts with an idea?
    Well, a journal is going to be one of your most
    powerful tools to brainstorm and write more ideas
    down, your progress, what is working or not.
    Start by writing your goals there, map  out your
    plan of action.
    It doesn’t matter if it looks messy, it doesn’t matter
    if you write here and there, as long as YOU
    UNDERSTAND IT and you know
    what is there it is fine :)!
    Also, REVIEW YOUR GOALS DAILYHave a flexible approach be flexible goal setting wealthypreneurs anthony robbins tony
  7. BE FLEXIBLE, Be Adaptable. As Charles Darwin
    said: “It’s not the strongest of the species that
    survives, nor the most intelligent, it is the one that
    is most adaptable to CHANGE“. Things are always
    changing and a strategy what works today may not
    be working tomorrow. So be flexible, and ALWAYS
    leave room for improvement..
    Stay committed to your decisions but stay flexible in
    your approach” (Anthony Robbins).Be consistent goal setting wealthypreneurs anthony robbins robert kiyosaki
  8. BE CONSISTENT. Consistency is KEY. Nothing
    was ever achieved by merely luck or overnight and with
    no efforts. Every success requires an amount of effort
    and almost unreasonable consistency.
    It is the little steps what create the journey. It is those
    millions of water drops that shape the sea.
    You must also know that there are going to be moments
    when things will probably seem confusing or not as great
    as you want them to be. Understand that it is part of the
    game and no matter what you MUST remain CONSISTENT.
    This is why it is VITAL and INDISPENSABLE to know and
    understand your WHY. Your WHY is what is going to fire
    you up and give you the strength and motivation to continue.
    Finally remember what we’ve been talking about over the
    last days: Whatever you focus on CONSISTENTLY, you will
    experience in your life.

Creativity is Intelligence having Fun Wealthypreneurs Albert Einstein

 

Before ending this post, I would like an exercise for you,

  • 1. go grab a pen and paper

    you want to achieve. If it makes it easier take 5 minutes to
    write your personal goals, financial goals and business/career goals.
  • Once you finish doing that, take an extra 3 minutes to add
    a set  time for each goal like, the ones you want to achieve
    within the next 1, 2, 5, 10 or 20 years.

Remember, You are capable of achieving anything you want 🙂

How to transition from Employee to Entrepreneur successfully in 5 easy steps

Previously, we talked about what is an Entrepreneur? – You can check that post here – 

We also talked about The 13 Disturbing statistics about employee engagement mostly because one gets sick and tired of the working routine. If you feel identified in one of those 13  facts, then bear with me. 

I have been through that process before and everything started with 1 Question: Do You Need a Career Change??…  You are not alone my friend. You can also go through my personal advice and tips to evaluate yourself in terms of making a career change on our Career Change Tab at the top of this page or -alternatively- here 🙂. Some of your questions and doubts have been answered there.

So NOW, have YOU decided to MAKE that CHANGE…

And you are ready to start!

Well first of all, this is what you need to know to make a successful transition from Employee to Entrepreneur* -I mean – to FREEDOMPRENEUR 😀 .

*From now on, when You read the word Entrepreneur, I am referring to a FREEDOMPRENEUR*

  • Is This Career For You?

We have already spoken about this before but I will refresh your mind.

Entrepreneurship is a Career, a PROfession and a Lifestyle choice.
If you want to become an entrepreneur* for the solely purpose of making money or getting power then you are starting with the wrong foot and it will not lead you to the successful results you are looking for. –Or it may be, but it will also be your 1 way ticket to failure

What are the reasons to become an Entrepreneur?

  1. You are PASSIONATE about something. (We will refer to this passion as your Niche)
  2. You have the KNOWLEDGE to talk/teach/help/educate others about what you are passionate about.
  3. Your passion SOLVES A PROBLEM.
  4. You want to CHANGE THE WORLD.

What questions you should ask yourself?

  1. WHY do you want to be an ENTREPRENEUR??
    What is your WHY? What is your CORE MOTIVATION?
  2. What is YOUR definition of SUCCESS?? –
    Do You want to be Successful or Significant, What’s the difference? It’s all here)
  3. What if you “fail”? Can You handle “failure”?
    *I quote “failure” because I believe that there is no such thing as failure but only LESSONS. Are you training your mind ? Follow this exercises for a positive mindset
  4. Are you ready to commit? –
    Rome wasn’t built in a day.  Building and Owning your own business require your DEDICATION, COMMITMENT and WORK. You can choose to do the same thing by working for others or giving 1000% to build up YOUR DREAMS.

 

  • Pinpoint Your Talents

We all are good at something, especially when we are PASSIONATE about THAT Something. Yes, the keyword here is PASSION, PASSION, PASSION!. 

Entrepreneurial Traits

  1. Are you a problem solver?
  2. Are you coachable and willing to learn?
  3. Are you open to new experiences?
  4. You don’t need to “see it to believe in it”, you need to “Believe in it to See it”.
  5. How SERIOUS are you about this?
    What are your habits? Do you have the habits of successful people and if not, are you ready to learn them and apply them?. See…. more than working hard you will need to work SMART.
  6. EXPERIENCE
    It is often said that experience is a vital factor. But, I wouldn’t say that. I know a lot of people who had no previous experience on working online and now they are nailing it and rockin’! YES, it does help to have some kind of experience on your niche, but it is all about being passionate and determined to succeed. For example, when I begun I knew nothing about writing blogs like this but I was hungry to learn I am still learning and my reason to be here is to help YOU and show YOU that YOU can do this too and succeed.

What questions should you ask yourself?

  1. What entrepreneurial traits do you have?
    Are you curious? What are you good at? Make a list of your abilities, your hobbies, your strengths.
  2. What are your strengths?
    A better way to identify this is by asking your friends or the people closer to you.
  3. Where do your passions lie? How can any it be translated into a business?

 

  • Brainstorming & Launching Your “Project”

Do some brainstorming, write down all of the ideas that jump into your mind.
Then, put them in order, in the order you believe is more convenient to build up a plan.
Start up a disposable “project” and write out different variations of it.

Yes, I know one can get excited with this first step, once you have your first draft. But don’t get too excited. Instead look for reasons to dismiss it – Sounds crazy, right? – But it is the true, because you will be finding the possible weaknesses which will lead you to a better plan!. So…. think outside the box 🙂

“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” ~ Albert Einstein

What do the BEST start-up ideas have in common?

  1. SIMPLICITY
    Start by solving ONE problem at the time, one big idea at the time. This will help you identify your customer, your audience.
  2. CLEAR REVENUE
    Having a clear revenue is mandatory for your business model. Actually, having a well defined revenue model is key because it identifies what product or service you are going to create/provide in order for it to be sold. This will also help you identify and target your audience and build up more plans to develop your business.
  • It’s time to do some research…

When working online, or working from your laptop or working from home or working from no-home or however you want to call it. You definitely need to do some research, this includes:

  • Analyze the market and competition.
  • Look for people who are succeeding doing the same thing that you want to do.
  • Educate yourself about IT, attend events, subscribe to courses, newsletters and literate yourself, surround yourself with contacts or people who KNOW about it. You can do that by subscribing to different sites, having an email waiting for you everyday with different kinds of information that sometimes is useless and a waste of time or, you can choose to subscribe to only 1 master source which is home of the most Savvy people in the Online World and will be there to walk you through and help you along the way. This is the one I use, it teaches you the steps-by-step blueprint and it holds endless resources to your success.
  • Study your potential audience. What do they need? What crucial problems do they need to be solved? How can YOU help them?

 

  • Are You Ready?

Did you enjoy this process and the science behind it? It might seem long but trust me if you REAL, PASSIONATE and DETERMINED towards your goal, it is a fun and wonderful process where you will learn more from yourself and your strengths than you have ever imagined. Being an entrepreneur is not only about building a business but mostly about building and developing yourself.

Now, Answer YES or NO.

NO:  If you didn’t like the process, then you need to be honest to yourself and analyze carefully whether entrepreneurship is the right path for You right now.

YES: Congratulations!!!!, continue with the steps mentioned above, get feedback from other entrepreneurs, start looking for mentors and begin to build your life, your business!… Also, do not get too distracted with the theory because the BEST way to learn is by practice!…. Or, did you learn to walk by reading books? ;). You can start by following the same bluebrint I followed and as you have taken the time to read all the way through this post, I have this little gift for You :),  A FREE video Series that it will give you a sneak peek of the things I have learnt and you can access it by clicking HERE.

Finally, let me know if you have any questions or if there is anything I can help you out with :).

Wish you all the Best!,

exclamationKeep an eye onto the warning signs you might be in the wrong career…

Despite what you think, wanting a career change is a common fact. People change their careers all the time for a lot of different reasons (personal reasons, financial reasons, #MyWorkDoesn’tFulfilledMe). Here are some of them:

02_ current career reasons australia wealthypreneurs

  • 41% – “I fell onto it”
    This would be like finishing School/Uni and a casual job is started. One thing takes to the other and all of a sudden you wind up 10 years working in the same career. Maybe it was cool at the beginning but It wasn’t really what you were looking for or what You really wanted but… you just landed there and…. It was a job, right?
  • 11.5% – ” It was what my friends, family,teachers, councelor and career tests told me to do”
    This is a classic one. There is always someone in our family who we are going to admire and becomes an influencial figure in our lives, and you strike to pursue and do the same things they did. But sometimes You forget to hear Your Own voice, your Inner Calling and wind up in a career that doesn’t really fulfill you. Sometimes you forget to look for other more alternatives.

For Example: Engineer Parent, Engineer Child.   Economist Parent, Economist Child.    MD Parent, MD Child.  Plumbing Parent, Plumbing Child and so on…

One thing You need to Understand You are not your family or your friends or your advisors or a test you fill on the web to see which career suits you better. You are YOU, a person with dreams, aspirations, skills, strengths and weaknesses that makes You Unique. And You can Succeed on any career you  Want as long as you Really Really Want It and put all of your effort and commitment in It.

This remindes me of Nathan, The kiwi kid that with only 23 years left his work as a Plumber -his dad was a plumber- to develop his own career and travel the world by using a simple system and following the steps you can see >>> Here <<<.

  • 12% – “Because it seemed to have good convenient working hours”

What are the reasons for a Career change??

3_ reasons for wanting a career change wealthypreneurs

  • Want to help others
    “Y
    ou will get everything you want in life, if you just help other people get what they want”. ~Zig Ziglar
  • Undesirable relationship with the boss
    Having a bad relationship with your boss is an immediate turn-off at any job. It creates a tense environment, your productivity reduces, headaches show up and all you want is get out of there or finding an opportunity to Break Free and become Your Own Boss (like this one)
  • Endless long hours
    There is nothing more frustrating than missing an important party, family meeting, trip, dinner or just those extra 60 min of relax at the spa or chilling out in in your coach than having to stay Extra-Hours to finish a last minute Task the put on your desk just when you were excited to be leaving. -Ok, maybe sometimes it was something YOU left for the last minute- But my point Is: Is it really worth living to work instead of…. Working to make a living?

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy. ~Dale Carnegie

 The best way to know what steps to take is by actually, taking them!. I remember what I did first was some research, then I found people who is living the life I want to be living. I started to following them and they became my mentors. Someone once told me:  The Best way to be in the business is, by Being in the business”. There is no such a thing as waiting for the perfect moment because while you wait and the years pass. Someone else is starting, learning and applying what they learn.

“You don’t need to be great to start, but you need to start to be great” ~Zig Ziglar.

 

Life is too short and doesn’t wait. Just give it a go!

There is no such thing as failure, there are only results. ~Anthony Robbins
