“Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being excited about what could go right.”
For years I have been dreaming about being my own boss. I can't stand the thought of having to work a 9-5 office job in the SAME office, looking out of the SAME window, having the SAME daily routine day in and day out. The thought of having to do this for the next 40 some years kills me. I believe there's more to life than just that. I have had a few jobs here and there as a teenager. None of them made me happy and while I currently work in an environment where a lot of different things happen each day, I plan on leaving that office job at the end of 2019. So basically in a year from now.
The past two years I have been figuring out a way on how I could do that. How could I pursue my dream of being self employed, working wherever and whenever I please. Go on vacation when I want to and go through MY day the way how I wanted it while also not giving up on my dream because of the self doubts I have due to my depression. And that's when I realized I had to find my passion and I had to find the right mindset.
Fast forward...Here I am now. I have already made the first steps. I have a vision, a dream to pursue, the skills I need for the services I offer, I have a website but the biggest thing I have is courage. Courage to keep going when no one believes in me. Courage to keep going when I dont believe in myself. Courage to chase my dream and to leave the corporate world behind in a year from now.
I'll always have to be my number one fan in this journey. Even when times get tough. So in the end, you can have all the skills, dreams and visions. If you don't have the right mindset then you won't make it far and that is when you will fail. So not having the right mindset is not an option
What's your biggest fear in your journey of being self-employed?
