Each and every day people look for safe investments in order to better their economy both for now as well as the future.
The problem is, many look to invest in the stock market or external avenue’s rather than taking the time to look internally.
Buying stocks, lottery tickets, etc. are unrealistic not to mention “hopeful” quick-fixes…(at best) and hold little promise to improve financial stability.
Sadly, despite this, it really does reflect the dismal fact that the majority of people these days would rather jump in head long and sit back with fingers crossed hoping for a miracle to happen over applying a little personal energy and effort into building a business and doing something in order to take control of their circumstances.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve made investments too for the ‘future’ but that’s not what I solely rely on to maintain security!
Thank goodness I don’t either, as I along with many others have certainly seen a rapid decline in many of my own personal stocks, even the safest of investments have lost value over the last few years. Naturally I hope things will turn around but because I know can’t count on it, I have at least had enough sense to diversify and put my energy into the things that I CAN control to create both personal and financial success.
I often ponder the questions: Why do so few look at what THEY can do? Why do many lack faith in their own personal power or choose to ignore it altogether? Why do so many people expect to be handed a silver platter?
Perhaps it’s laziness or resistance to learning. I’m thinking that in many cases it’s a combination of all the above.
Over the course of the last few years, I’ve noticed a few common denominators in many of my clients. It seems to me that not only are there those similar to the ones I mentioned above, but there are also folks who ‘pretend’ to want to take control of their own financial situation yet are not willing to DO something.
These pretenders will actually spend hours, or days at a time looking for business ideas online but never have true intentions to take action.
It seems to me based on the number of people I speak to in a week (which are many) who contact me to learn about starting a business, are at first totally fired up at the prospects of not so much building a business but more the financial possibilities of their pipe dream. I have noticed that when these ‘dreamers’ contact me initially, they at first talk with excitement and enthusiasm.
The moment however I mention the fact there will be an investment of time and a little money to fund the learning curve there’s a strange silence that “all of a sudden” takes place. They may as well say out loud “what?… ya mean I have to do something to create success?”
These people are never wiling to invest a little time, energy and in some cases a few bucks to further their current situation, yet, it’s always ‘this group’ who will be the first to complain about their current predicament and how they can never get ahead.
As a few of you may know I very recently launched a site to help individuals utilize the power of the internet to either start a home based business…. Or perhaps take an existing business (MLM or Offline business) online.
Much of the site (not all) is geared to beginners, whether in dire need of financial improvement or not. The purpose is to simply to empower people to step out on the wild side and start to learn how to create or better their own personal economy and make positive life changes with easy to follow instruction.
I have had tremendous response as the coaching I provide is ridiculously affordable and coupled with the fact that I have spent the better part of the last four years as both an empowerment coach and internet marketer, I do provide a lot of value in the way of knowledge and experience.
Sadly out of dozens of inquiries so far, only about four percent of the contacts from the internet have materialized into solid clients.
It has you wondering doesn’t it?
The bottom line is for anybody, particularly if you are not satisfied with life at present and wish to make some changes, it’s time you looked at what YOU can do to improve rather than expecting change to fall onto your lap.
Success is NOT convenient and it does require your participation!
If you wish to create positive life changes, making ‘safe’ investments with the true intention to get ahead WILL only benefit you … that is… IF you are serious about success. A little time and money spent on courses or education can pay dividends down the road by speeding up the process of learning beneficial skills.
This will actually pay two-fold because you’ll save so much of the time you would probably have spent trying to learn the skills you need much faster than if you struggled alone!
The flip side is if you’re NOT serious about improving yourself (yet say you are) and you’re not willing to invest the time or a little money into your own personal betterment … yet you’re willing to drop a few bucks at the local coffee shop or on a couple of Starbucks and you’d rather spend your time playing Farmville on Facebook all day, you’ll never get anywhere! Period.
All change comes from within and everyone has the personal power to learn new skills, put knowledge into action and create their own economy but you have to be wiling to get off the couch and do it.
If it’s merely that you don’t have faith in your own abilities, you need to change your thinking and realize that we all start from scratch and have to learn a few new things for the first time each and every day. Furthermore, we all have something we can share with others to create value… or at least the ability to find something that resonates.
When you were born, God didn’t say… ‘This one is going to be successful… but this one’s going to be a real loser and never get anywhere”. We were ALL born with a unique ability to progress in a positive fashion!
If you’re having a hard time with determining your purpose in life, take the time to sit down and think things through… or find a coach or mentor to help you out. There is always SOMETHNG you can do. You just need to put the time into finding the right “it”… and once you do, you have to do whatever it takes to make it happen.
If you can think of “it” you can make “it” work!
We live in a time full of opportunity and have access to so many avenues right at our fingertips! (literally!)
There’s a brand new year just around the corner and if you want next year to be better than this year or years passed, start laying the foundation now.
Again, everyone is born with the same set of chances to achieve success.
Isn’t it time you made the safest investment of all? That would be into yourself (for the long term) by applying some effort to take control of your life!
Ask yourself…”What can I do to make things great?”… then find a way to do it! If you’re serious about living a better life you’ll find a way to make it happen!
(If I can do it, anybody can!)
