Choose Your Own Destiny

The thought of working from home is intimidating to many people; which makes perfect sense. We are told by society that in order to be successful we have to have a ‘real’ job. At the end of the day though, what is a job? Well, a job is a way of making money. If I told you, you could pick your own hours, do whatever it is you love and get paid for it, wouldn’t you want to do it? Some of you may say ‘no’, but before you decide against it; let me explain how working online can be beneficial to you.

There are many online scams, which is why I think so many individuals instantly write off working online. They are worried about not being paid, about not being able to keep up with their bills. In all honestly, who tells you that you can’t? Yourself. Working online can be scary in the beginning because it’s something completely new and there seems to be ‘no rules’. But, you can make the rules yourself.

When you find someone who wants you to work for them, you can decide how much you are going to make by showing confidence and expecting certain things from the person who will be paying you. If you need to, request they give you some sort of payment up front in order to show you they are serious. There are many people who believe you have to spend money in order to make money. While there may be companies out there that you pay to start making money, I can tell you from personal experience that I have never had to pay a single dime to make money online.

When I first started, I was iffy about the whole situation; thinking I could never make a living doing this. I thought nothing would come out of it because that’s what so many people were telling me. One day it just kind of hit me that I was letting them get in my way. I was allowing society to tell me what I could and couldn’t do.

Since I stopped worrying about what other people thought, I have been doing great. Sure, there are rough times, but that’s all because of me losing my motivation and drive. Don’t worry about what people tell you. Don’t worry about the fact that they are comfortable in their current situation and so they don’t understand working online.

You create your future and I’m telling you; you can do this and if you want it bad enough and put in the time; you will get there. You know what you’re capable of, and you know what it is you love to do. Choose your destiny; don’t let others tell you what it’s going to be.
