Yesterday I wrote about my decision to start a business instead of finding a job. Taking this step is the most exciting and scariest thing I have ever done in my life. There are so many unknowns that it is so hard to plan for. I looked at buying a house in
The excitement from this leap is enough to push aside my fear and take the leap. It will mean that I make the rules, I run the business how I want to, I make the decisions, I make my work hours and I decide when it’s time for a vacation. If I want a raise, I can just work harder or find new ways to generate income. I will be able to make time to do things that I wasn’t able to do at a job.
Have you ever taken a leap of faith? If you have or haven’t yet, leave a comment.
I am a typical person more or less that has always tried to get away with doing the absolute minimum to get by. In school, I did my assignments last minute, I barely passes some of my tests, I crammed for everything and didn't care about retaining any information. I always wanted to be successful and get lucky but my problem was that I thought that luck and chance were synonymous. One day, all that changed when i found out that there was more to "Luck". I learned that it was possible to make your own luck and that people that were "lucky", all had very similar characteristics. I made a conscious decision to become one of those lucky people and the world started to open up. It didn't happen overnight and I'm still not there yet but at least I know what to look for and what to do. Recognizing the opportunities to get lucky is only the beginning of the battle. Now I have to train myself to jump on every opportunity and one day be truly "lucky".
