As you have shown an interest in starting a business of
your own it would be safe to assume that you want to change
your life. You want more money - more control over your
life - more respect. But just as we each have a dream, we
also have a reality.
Unfortunately for most people, the reality bears no
similarity whatsoever to the dream. In many cases, the
dream exists as an escape from the reality.
Think now of YOUR reality - the life you lead every day.
What do you do? How do you feel as you awake? Do you have
any enthusiasm for your way of life? Do you enjoy your
work, or are you on welfare? Then ask yourself this
important question: Do you resent having to live this way?
If you answer 'yes' to that question, then you are in danger
of succumbing to the most destructive human emotion - Hate.
If you hate the life you live, the people you deal with, the
actions you are forced to take, then you will find yourself
rapidly rushing toward disaster. When you hate, you may as
well be drunk! You no longer function in a creative manner.
Your mind is geared toward destruction. Instead of aiming
to create a new life for yourself and those you love, you
will become obsessed with the act of revenge.
The more that you hate the people and situations around you,
the more your mind becomes poisoned with the purpose of
getting even. Logical thought becomes impossible and hate
then becomes a substitute for action. You must learn NOW,
to resist the urge to hate. It achieves nothing constructive
and it will destroy both you and your dreams of
success. As Ghandi said..."An eye for an eye just makes the
whole world go blind."
Take a good look at your way of life. Do you always have to
make do with what you have got, because you can't afford a
replacement? Are you always having to put off paying bills
until next week? Have you never enough money to enjoy
yourself? Are you unhappy with the area in which you live?
You may find that you are regularly having to write a check
on Monday and hope that you will be able to cover it by
Thursday. Or you may just be sick of the daily grind of
early mornings, or the regular nightshift. If most of these
apply to you, the you probably hate living this way. So now
make a POSITIVE effort to achieve success. Only through
positive endevour and thought will you achieve your goal.
Although your current way of life may be hard, think not how to
get rid of it, but how to REPLACE it with a better way of
life. Think SUCCESS - not revenge. Assess what you resent
about your life now.
You may even resent the things that you would normally
enjoy, were your circumstances different. Occassions like
Christmas, birthdays, and Easter can can be trying times
when you have no money to spend. Children don't understand
the restrictions of a tight budget, and it can cause great
distress to a parent who is unable to give his child the
gift, or day out, that they would like. Now imagine the
difference in these circumstances when you have achieved
success and you are wealthy.
There is no harm in imagining the difference your wealth
will make to your lifestyle - but approach it
Say to yourself: I will work to be a success so that I can
tell my boss where to stick his job! And so I can see the
look on the Bank managers face when I tell him not to bother
offering me overdraft facilities anymore! This attitude is
positive, but don't hate the way things are, or the people
it involves. That would only make things worse. You will
have plenty of time to reflect on your past when you are
These things that make you miserable and depressed will be
all behind you when you put the secrets of success to work.
Imagine life without all these trying times. You will be
able to enjoy Christmas, and give your kids what they want.
That squillion function, water-resistant, solar-powered
gizmo (that they ALWAYS wanted) will be a drop in the ocean
Many of the people who buy books on starting a business
actually don't bother starting up. They can't imagine
themselves ever running their own business and earning
Unlimited amounts of money. They never see things how
they CAN be - only how they are. Don't make this mistake!
KNOW what you want, KNOW how to get it, SEE how it WILL
be, and then go for it!!
