Here in the United States many people are still reeling from the results of the 2012 presidential election. Many of Mitt Romney’s supporters are in shock while President Obama supports are celebrating their hard one victory. And alot of people who probably did not vote are simply glad that this election is finally over.
No matter who you decided to follow and support, it all boils down to one simple question.
“How is this going to effect me, my family and my business?”
This question and others will be answered in due time over the next 4 years.
The truth is it will make little to no difference in my everyday life.
It doesn’t matter who my elected officials are on a local, state or national level. It is not going to change what I’m doing or my plans for the future.
Our leaders are not in control of my destiny and they are not in control of yours either.
We are All responsible for our own destiny my friend.
Policies may change how we do business. How and where I get health insurance may change. My taxes may go up. If these things happen then I need to be working harder right now to increase my income to offset the differences.
I need to continue to invest in my own education and my ability to make money and support my family.
But is that a bad thing? Isn’t that what most of us are doing already? As home business owners we are already looking for ways to generate more leads, get in front of more of our ideal customers and make more sales? So how is it different really?
People often talk about wanting a piece of the American Dream! Many will try to convince you that due to all the problems in our country the American Dream is dead.
But the truth is, its about all of us taking responsibility to go after that dream.
These are the same people who complain about their job. The whine because they don’t make enough money. They struggle with trying to make ends meet. Then they come home and flop in front of the TV. Worse yet they think the government owes them a better life.
Instead of all the complaining and excuses why don’t you start taking control of your destiny. Start working right now to build your own home business and start generating that secondary source of income.
Wake up an hour earlier.
Go to sleep an hour later.
Work on the weekends.
Stop watching TV.
Make phone calls with potential partners, customers or vendors during your commute to work.
When I was working as a welder I spent every free moment I had working on my entertainment business.
The American Dream is all about taking responsibility.
Nobody owes me anything and nobody owes you anything. If you want a better life then you are going to go get it because no one is just going to hand it to you. You can have a better life but you need to put some real effort into it.
So what’s the point of all of this?
Don’t make excuses.
You must take 100% responsibility for your life and For your freedom.
There’s no magic bullet to success. You can have as much success as you want as long as your willing to go get it. So how bad do you want it?
