What Happened To Change My Life Perspective?
If you are reading this article, chances are that you are seeking ways to make money online and new opportunity for your life. For me, I always knew that something better was out that for me and that I was not achieving my true potential.
I have been in the Information Technology field for over 25 years. It is not a field that I chose but a field that chose me. I did not have a silver spoon upbringing and pretty much had to make my own way and figure stuff out. The process has made me stronger so for that I am thankful. I definitely have an interest in Technology and it has allowed me to provide a good life for myself and also for my son. Yes, I am a single Mom and have been for all of my son’s life. Shout out to all of the single Mom’s out there and much respect and hugs going out to you!
Through my life, I have always known that career wise, there was more out there for me. I love doing graphic design, I love writing and have always had a passion for developing websites. I always felt tired or burned out from work and my true passions were just a hobby moreso than a career. I developed my websites on my lunch breaks. That hour that I spent each day doing something that I love made my days. It made some days great and some days more tolerable than they actually were.
I could never make a business out of this because I was giving the crumbs of my time to my true passions. One of my favorite quotes is from Suze Orman… she says do what you love and the money will come.
Getting Blind-Sided Changed Everything
So one day, I am sitting in my office at my 8 to 5 Information Technology job working away. The Human Resources lady asks me to come to her office and then she closes my door back. In my mind, I am not sure what she needs to see me for but it is probably no big deal right? I head to her office. When I open her door, much to my dismay, my boss, manager and the Human Resources lady are all three sitting at a round table.
Were they there to give me a promotion perhaps or to thank me for my EIGHT years of devotion to the company? I think not.
In the next moments, everything went into slow motion. My world as I knew it changed in the blink of an eye. The Human Resources lady stated that they are laying me off due to a workforce reduction. What! How could this be? In my head, I kept echoing, Workforce Reduction, Workforce Reduction…. what the heck!.. I thought the company was thriving!
I was not fully happy there and it was certainly not my dream but I planned on retiring there. I had a plan. But what was my actual plan? Come into work everyday on autopilot, do my job, put my health on the back-burner, spend an hour each day on my lunch breaks doing what I love, go home exhausted, take my bath, go to bed and do it all again the next day…. How could this all be ending? This was the life I had planned for myself? No, not really but I was doing what I thought I had to do to make a living.
I felt hurt and blind-sided because I cared about my job and actually took pride in it. But what was I so sad about? It took me about a day to snap out of it because I am just that resilient. ha. But, what was I really losing? Nothing. I had everything to gain.
Do I really want to devote my life to a company that can walk in in any split second and say they don’t need me anymore? Do you? Is that ANY WAY TO LIVE?
Devote your life to investing in yourself, building up yourself, doing what you love and chasing your dreams. Without all of this, what is really the point anyway?
My New Life The Next Day
The Back Story
Back in 2015 is when I first discovered Wealthy Affiliate.
I was Googling to find out the definition of Affiliate Marketing. I discovered Wealthy Affiliate and began my training. I signed up for a free account and they did not even require a credit card. I don’t trust places who ask me for my credit card to sign up. This is where I learned all about developing WordPress Websites and Affiliate Marketing. This is how it all began. For my lunch breaks, Wealthy Affiliate is where I would develop my websites and learn about pursuing my passions.
Now In The Next Day
Now, I thought about how my life had changed all within a matter of seconds. At first I was blind-sided and in a state of shock and hurt. The next day, I felt free. Free as a bird and flying like an eagle and with the other eagles who had reached that moment of enlightenment before me. Free to pursue my real dreams of owning my own business online.
I am living that life right now and I am sharing my story with you because I want that for you also. Just like anything, it takes work and dedication. But you are investing your time and your energy into yourself and into building your business. You believe in you. If you don’t, now is the time to start. Don’t put your trust in someone who can walk in and dismiss you at the drop of a hat.
My Typical Day
Wake up and make some egg whites or whole grain toast and honey
Do my Yoga and exercise (I am recovering from an injury) Finally time and energy to take care of my health!
