Why you should be self employed

Here is why I believe you MUST be self-employed. It has to do with why I believe you exist; why you were put on this earth. This is what I believe with all my heart: YOU ARE HERE ON EARTH TO BECOME THE GREATEST VERSION OF YOURSELF THAT YOU CAN BECOME! Abraham Maslow, after years of research and study concluded that, in order for a person to be happy and fulfilled, he said, “What a person can be, they MUST be.”

 Marianne Williamson said it best when she said, “You are here to manifest the glory of God that is within you; it’s not just in some, it’s in everyone.” You have amazing potential. But you will never, ever, realize your full potential by working for someone else; it’s just not going to happen. When you work for someone else, you are helping them accomplish their dreams. You need to be working on your own. You will never realize your potential if someone else controls your time, your income and, more importantly, your creativity. You need to be in control of your own destiny. If you spend 40 – 50 hours per week doing something that you don’t want to do, but have to do; it drains your energy. It just sucks the life right out of you. But you know that. That’s why you come home exhausted and stressed; and can’t wait for the weekend. And that’s why you get that knot in your stomach Sunday night, because you know that tomorrow, you have to do it all over again. 

All you can do is hang on and pray for those two weeks of vacation each year. YOU SIMPLY CANNOT BECOME THE GREATEST VERSION OF YOURSELF UNDER THOSE CIRCUMSTANCES. But imagine if you are doing something every day that you want to do; and that you are excited to do. You become energized. Instead of swimming upstream and fighting the current of life you are now going with the flow of life. You go so much farther, so much faster and with so much less effort because you are in the flow of life. Right where you belong. This is the only way to become the greatest version of yourself. This is the way you allow your talents and passions to flourish. This is the way that you create for yourself a life of joy, purpose and abundance. The life you were meant to live. This is why I put together my website and resources. Here is how it all started: If you have followed my work for any length of time you will know that my passion is helping others realize their full potential. To help them create for themselves a life of joy, purpose and abundance. It is what I wrote about, spoke about and taught. But something had disturbed me for a very long time. When I would follow up with people who had read my book, Fanning the Ember, or attended one of my lectures; I would ask them if they are still heading in the direction of their dreams. And, if not, why not? Where were they stuck? What was their biggest obstacle? And the overwhelming majority of these folks all came back describing the exact same struggle: THEY WERE STUCK AT THEIR JOBS! Sure they had dreams. But they didn’t know how to go after them without quitting their jobs and taking a huge risk. They had bills to pay and a family to support. 

To risk it chasing a dream meant potential financial hardship for their families. After all, look at all the businesses that failed. So, as a result…they felt stuck. This disturbed me quite a bit and was simply unacceptable. What good was it to write and lecture in an effort to help others realize their full potential if most of them could not overcome the most difficult obstacle they faced; feeling trapped in their jobs.
