You can not discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore. ~ Tibetan Proverb

Working for others goes hand in hand with working at a job that you know you need to Just Quit.

Most of us know that working for someone else is not going to really get us anywhere, but most of us are scared to make it on our own.

Why are we scared?

Usually there are two reasons:

  1. We like the idea of a steady paycheck, and
  2. We like the idea of going to the doctor.

It you don’t have a job working for someone else, then you may struggle to get paid and have health and life insurance.  (At least that’s how it is in the USA). Isn’t that really the bottom line?

Have you ever stopped to consider that every organization that has employees had to start at the beginning with an idea? Someone just decided that they would start one day. Someone had a good idea and decided to make that idea materialize and become a reality.

Let us dream…

Let us dream of you being the employer who provides the paycheck and the insurance. It might just be for you, but it could be for others as well.

This has to be possible because people are doing it everyday. Why can’t you be one of those people?  You can be that person. You might have to take it in stages.

You might have to figure out a plan and work the plan. It might take you two, five, or ten years.

You just have to start.  You just have to begin.  Just take the first step.

Name the business.  Type the business plan.  Get the business license.  Find the building.  Find the suppliers.  Get the quotes.  Work out the service you are going to provide.  Find the target market.  Design the presentation.  Find the warehouse.  Find out how much money it will take.

                  

What can you commit to doing today towards your business idea?

Do It. 

Just Start.

Then Keep Doing Something  (even if it’s a teeny, tiny something) EVERYDAY.
