It used to be people worked their entire lives for the same company, and sometimes at the same job if they weren’t promoted from within. They’d put in decades and then retire. Sure, they had dreams, some of which they achieved—and there were also bridges they’d never cross. Most of them never looked back. Many people just accepted the hand life dealt them.
It’s not that way anymore. We’re living longer and there’s more to life than ever. We want to do it all. And for those who want to stretch their arms and do something different, it’s never been easier. People are realizing it’s never too late to start over.I say go ahead; begin again. No matter your circumstances, write that book or invest in that brilliant idea you’ve been dreaming about.
How can you begin again?
Outsourcing is the key. You can even keep your day job while you go back to school or grow another business. We see this every day at 123Employee. People of all ages and life stages invest in their dreams with whatever resources they have available, and at their own pace, guide a team of VAs to support them. Sometimes they begin with a few hours a week, and other times one or two VAs support them full time.
You can do this too. Do you have a great idea or a heart-held dream you want to bring to fruition? Of course you do—everyone does.The attached video illustrates an example of what I’ve been talking about. Listen as the man in the video talks about applying the principles he’s learned about fulfilling his dreams. But don’t just listen. Look at him. Do you see the joy in his smile?
Begin right where you are, right now, using whatever you have to work with. You’ll notice that with each step forward, the journey gets easier. With each goal achieved your dream gets closer. Where would you like to start unraveling your dream or expressing your great idea? Decide and then set a manageable goal—one that’s easily attainable. The moment you achieve success by accomplishing even a small goal, your whole world will turn around. Experience the momentum as it shifts you in the direction of your dreams. Outsourcing and task delegation will open your schedule up and you’ll have time to do the most important tasks—such as those that generate income. Try it. It works!
