What will you change today?

What will YOU change today – to ensure you succeed?…

We all want success, but there are only a few that actually go out and make sure it happens to them. I’m talking about no plan B here. You are going to make it – whatever!

When I first started in business I absolutely hated my job. It was destroying me. Every day I would phone Victoria and tell her that I needed to quit. I couldn’t do this any more…

But she would tell me that we couldn’t. We had a mortgage to pay, credit cards to service… and so it went on…

Me, hating my job. Me, buying everything that I could get my hands on to try and create a new income stream, a new life for us.

I tried eBay, gambling, trading, forex, all sorts of systems and promises… and I spent thousands, getting nowhere.

BUT, I did not quit.

I kept going… and eventually discovered Internet Marketing… and very quickly it actually made sense, started to work and I could see a light at the end of the tunnel.

But then, we had a huge decision to make.

Into the unknown.

No longer reliant on a salary, but dependant on income that YOU would generate. Exciting and very scary at the same time.

And to make this transition more comfortable I sold my car. I decided that I would work from home and make this sacrifice…

And it gave me a good 3-4 months of “survival money” to give it my best shot.

The truth is that I never needed that money, but it was the safety net that I needed at the time to really go for it.

Many people have the safety net of a job or an income which means they will never truly go for it… and force themselves to succeed.

It’s sad, because there’s potential in all of us… and so much more out there.

Today I wanted to share this, because over the last few days I have seen people driving around in the best car they can afford, but hating and complaining about their job!!

I have seen someone charging £2 to clean wheelie bins!!

And I have spoken to one particular person that annoyed the heck out of me. He spoke to his friends and they told him that it won’t work… Just imagine if I’d checked this with my friends – all those years ago.

In fact, my parents thought I was crazy when I quit my job!!… and were very concerned for me. LOL.

What sacrifice are you making TODAY?
