Make the change in your lifeAs a boy, I used to dream a lot about becoming powerful and wealthy. Mind you I didn't figure hard work and sacrifice into the equation of becoming powerful and wealthy.
As a teenager, I would imagine being discovered as a long lost relative to some rich family line and then being taken in to join that clan to share their life of leisure.
As an adult, I worked as an employee for others a good long while before I figured out the odds of some distant family branch leaving me great bundles of money was unlikely. I was going to have to change my life somehow if I wanted to advance my fortunes.
Now, I drive into work where I don't have to worry about being let go, oppressive bosses, corporate bureaucracy and hoping that some well paying position opens up and I'm picked from obscurity to fill it.
Being self employed and working with quite a few self employed clients gives me so many ideas of what is possible.
It's so much harder to remove the shackles from your mind to say let's try to start something (like a business) instead of playing it safe. The easier part is taking action when your mind finally lets your body get moving.
