Today I wanted to talk to you about something very important. I always get the question from you know pretty much everybody. Right. And when I meet people and I tell them I work online, they will ask me.
“So I would like to do the same thing. What should I do?”
And the question is you know what do you recommend? What should I do? And I'm like “well it depends, because I don't know you. And what I would do might be different from what you will do. OK. Because there are a lot of different ways to make money on the Internet. All right. There are hundreds and hundreds of different ways. I discover some every day and I'm amazed.
So it will depend on who you are and what you want to achieve. OK. So we're going to cover it right now. So when you start a business, your main motivation for starting a business is usually because you believe that you were meant for something bigger than what you're doing right now. You're not satisfied, your job is not fulfilling for you or maybe you hate your boss. You don't have enough time to do whatever you want to do.
So one of the main reasons for people to start a business is to have more freedom. Another motivation will be to make more money. What happens afterwards is that you start working for yourself.
But once you start working for yourself, you're basically creating your own company, your own business then you realize that you have to work work work work work work work work!!! to make it happen and you know because you're starting from pretty much nothing and you don't have the support from other people you don't have a big team in the beginning it's just you OK. And this is when you know it's necessary.
So I'm not saying that it's a bad thing. It's a very good thing when you work like this. So you work with an objective because you have whatever objectives you had when you studied or whatever that led you to decide to start this business. And that is going to drive you. OK. So all the work that you're putting in is going in that direction. All right. So you will learn a lot of things by working that much and by reverse engineering what people are doing, etc.
So that work is necessary. All right. So you will work and work and work and stuff and. And basically you will get to a point where you'll start making a little bit of money. And then afterwards it's encouraging you keep working more. You keep working more and then you start having success.
All right. So once you're at that stage, only then you will start asking yourself OK well I've got the money now how do I get the freedom? So the problem is that the amount of money that you were able to make comes from the fact that you are working a lot. And what happens is that if you stop doing that, then well you will go back to whatever levels you were at before right.
If you haven't set it up right. Which is what I see a lot. Like most people will create a business that requires them, so they need to put in this work and that money. Let's say for example you start making ten grand but you're working 20 hours a day. Then if you stop working those 20 hours a day then you don't make that 1o grand and then after woods you think about it.
So at that point you will feel trapped, because you think the only thing I can do is to keep working because otherwise I lose what I was able to achieve. Right. And there is something you need to understand in the psychology, is that we are far more afraid of losing something we already have then not getting something we want.
It's terrifying. So why am I depicting this image here, is to answer that question of what should I do. OK. So this is the typical scenario where you will go you know head on in something and then afterwards you will be trapped in there. OK. So the best way is to look at it and in my opinion, figure out before you start anything, what will be good for you and what you will do.
So this is why my answer is always well it depends. OK. All right.
So let's say for example today you have all the money in the world. All right. What does your day look like? What's your perfect day? You don't have to work. You don't have to because everything is taken care of. You don't have to worry about your salary and all that stuff. So what would you do? All right.
So the answer is different from one person to the other. So some people will tell you “I will just go and travel because I love traveling. I will go around the planet and I will do this and I will do that”. Some people will tell you “I'll spend all my days with my kids”. Some people will tell you “I will go and take care of an animal shelter because I love animals”. Some people will tell you “I'll keep working because I love what I do.
But I will work on it just as a hobby”. People often say that they don’t want to retire. They just want a security behind them you know.
So that's the reason why you know it really depends. And you're going to be able to organize your business and stuff around your life instead of the opposite. Because in the scenario that I depicted before while all your life revolved around that job of yours that you had. OK.
