Digital Revolution

THE REVOLUTION                                                                                                                        In the 1980’s Bill Gates and Steve Jobs started a  revolution.  It was a worldwide revolution; it was the Digital Revolution.  The revolution started with the PC and has evolved to the internet, cellphones and smartphones, laptops and tablets, worldwide communication, robotics, and even digital currency.

WORLDWIDE REVOLUTION                                                                                                    Everyone is involved in the revolution whether by intention or by accident.  In some form or fashion not only do we use technology but we depend upon it.  Some of us have become addicted to it.  You can hardly dart a corner without seeing people staring into a smartphone.   With the exception of 1 or two countries, everywhere technology has invaded our societies.

TOO OLD

ARE YOU TOO OLD                                                                                                                        I was reading an article a few days ago that read “You Should Not Become an Entrepreneur if You’re 50 Years or Older.”  That was the worst nonsense that I have ever heard.  You are never too old to start a business or anything else for that fact.

AGE IS IRRELEVANT                                                                                                                It does not matter what age a person may be anyone can pursue their dreams and set new goals.  Age is irrelevant.  Ray Croc started the McDonalds Corporation at the age of 62.  Harland David Sanders at 66 years of age started Kentucky Fried Chicken and became a billionaire at the age of 88.  These are two of the most recognized people that became entrepreneurs after the age of 50.  I’m sure there are many more.

DISTRACTIONS

DON’T GET DISTRACTED                                                                                                        I have noticed that since I have been building my business a lot of unexpected situations keep popping up and these circumstances require my immediate attention.  It becomes very easy to get sidetracked by distractions.   When you’re doing something that really interests you, life will send you a few distractions.

 

 

BACK TO THE ROUTINE                                                                                                 When I am distracted, especially for a few days, I tend to lose my rhythm and I have to make a conscious effort to get back into my business routine.  I have a list of things that I do every day to ensure that I am moving towards my goals.  When I break my routine I find it very difficult to get back into the groove.  This is when I have to make that conscious effort to get back on the trail.

CHARACTER BUILDING                                                                                    Distractions are character builders.  They teach me discipline and recovery.  The same as a professional athlete, entrepreneurs have to train their minds and focus their attention on their business to ensure that the business grows and thrives.  There are certain things that nearly all entrepreneurs do daily.  This is their routine.  Without the routine people become scattered and nothing gets done and they fail.

LIFE’S CHALLENGES                                                                                                                  Life being who and what it is will provide you with mountains to climb, valley to descend to and a host of obstacles, but through it all, if your plan is to accomplish your goal, you can’t allow yourself to get distracted by these challenges.  People that get distracted by the circumstances typically fall prey to overwhelm, become fearful and doubtful then give up. That’s why it’s very important to get back to the routine ASAP.

RECOVERY                                                                                                                              Knowing how to recover quickly from a life disturbance can be the difference between failure and success.  The first time that I went into business life threw me a curve ball and it took me 22 years to recover and get back into the game.  I share that experience with you so that you will understand that I’m not sharing an opinion but rather a reality.

In one of Tony Robbins speeches, he shares that when he was learning to drive race cars the instructors would through the car off balance and that way the driver learns how to recover the car and stay in the race.  He tells how while going through a turn at high speed the car is drifting toward the wall of the track and his instructor is telling him not to look at the wall but look at where he wants to go.  These techniques taught him the principle of how to recover.  Stay focused on where you want to go.  Tony Robbins

REFOCUS                                                                                                                                When life throws me a curve ball, I stop with the business, handle the situation to the best of my ability, then I go back to my daily checklist as soon as possible.  Yes!  I have a daily checklist to make sure that I am doing what I suppose to be doing.  Believe me when I say it is very easy to get sidetracked by secondary activities.

When life throws you a distraction stop and deal with the circumstance.  Get back into your routine as quickly as possible.  Do understand that when you experience a life challenge the purpose is to build your character.   A word of wisdom: “Nothing comes to stary and everything comes to pass.”  Recover from the challenge and get refocused.  Following this course of action will keep you in the driver’s seat of your dream.  If you need to learn the fundamentals and get a routine for success check-out this company.

WHY DO YOU WORK?

WHY DO YOU WORK                                                                                                               We have different reasons why we think we work, but the bottom line is that we work for the tool money.  We need money to pay the mortgage or rent.  We need money for utilities, groceries, and an assortment of expenses. We also work so that we can put some money away for our future.

WHAT ARE YOU WORKING FOR                                                                                     What are you working for is a million dollar question.  Beyond working for the necessities most people have no idea what they are working for.  Knowing exactly what you want should be the reason for working. Having targets (goals) to shoot for gives you a reason to work,  but if you have no targets you have nothing to hit.  Lack of targets is why many people settle for living from paycheck to paycheck.

WORKING FOR MONEY                                                                                                    Most people spend 40 – 60 hours, and sometimes more, working for a paycheck.   Frankly, most people today are working for wages paid in the 1980’s.   On payday when they get their paycheck there’s not enough money to cover expenses.  So many find themselves juggling expenses just to survive.  A person with a goal can contrive a plan to move from surviving to thriving, and many have learned to use the digital economy to move from survival to security.

IS THIS ALL THERE IS                                                                                                          Do you ever wonder;  Is this all there is to life?   You work all these hours every week for little money and little time left for yourself or your family.  You save for a year and sometimes longer for a vacation that lasts 1 – 2 weeks, and then back to work.  Is this all there is to life?  Work until the day that you die?  Is there an alternative?  Yes, there is an alternative and young and old alike are seeking the alternative.  Les Brown describes how to       Live Your Dream!

THE ALTERNATIVE                                                                                                          Many people are seeking alternative ways to supplement their income.  I have an older friend/mentor. He is retired, but he encountered the unexpected. Now he is seeking to reinsert himself back into the workforce to supplement his income.  Some people attain a second job, but others are creating a second income by developing home-based businesses.  Nearly everyone has a computer and almost everybody uses social media.  So, why not put these skills and platforms to work for you!  Work your own hours and write your own paycheck.

THE INTERNET                                                                                                                      The internet is our most powerful tool that most people use every day, but most people never take time to think “How can I use the internet to create extra money.”  I’m not saying that you will become a millionaire, but anybody can create an extra $2,000 – $4,000 per month working from your home using the internet.  I have done just that,  and now I am able to go where I want to go, do what I want to do, and live where I want to live, and you can too.

Investigate  You might be saying “NO” that’s not for me and that’s ok because financial freedom is not suitable for everyone just those who want it.  For the people that want to live better here is how I did it.  Digital Life  Join my blog and learn about more digital life opportunities.

 

OVERWHELMED

EXPERIENCING OVERWHELM                                                                  Anyone and everyone who pursues entrepreneurship has and will experience overwhelm.  Whenever people take on something which have never done before they usually experience some fear and can become overwhelmed.

BEYOND THE COMFORT ZONE                                                                Going beyond your comfort zone speaks for itself.  To go beyond comfort and you enter into discomfort.   For most people becoming an entrepreneur is something new, something outside of the comfort zone, so it is natural to feel some fear, to become disoriented from the amount of task needed to be performed and the amount of knowledge needed to learn.  Trying to figure out what to do and when to do it can be very intimidating. But cheer-up, most entrepreneurs have traveled this road. Continue reading “OVERWHELMED”
