I live on Australia’s Gold Coast, in a little suburb called Mermaid Beach. Its a lovely, sunny place to live, almost like a large country town. Not too big that you get caught up in the crazy pace of big city life and forget to take in all the blessings that come to you every day. Not too small that you miss out on the cosmopolitan conveniences that come with population centers.
At the moment we are expecting a baby, which has been a surprise, albeit one that has brought us even closer to one another. Sitting there at home observing my pregnant partner snooze on the couch, I was all of a sudden overcome by gratitude, a feeling that I am so lucky to be living the life I have created for myself. I no longer have to commute to work: I get to spend my days at home thanks to the internet business I run.
Rather than driving to the office every morning, I merely get up at the hour my body chooses and head down to surf in the sea, which is no more than 2 minutes from my door. After that, once my arms can no longer handle the paddling on the board, I go to fetch a latte from my local cafe just down the road and sit down for a few short hours reviewing my sites and writing articles similar to the one you’re reading now. In this way, I keep optimizing the performance of my sites and guaranteeing that tomorrow, like today, I won’t have to head into an office to work.
Then, right about the time I eat lunch, the postman will pass by. This is the most exhilarating moment of the day, as he often brings me the checks that make all of this a feasible and livable job, how lucky I am!
I know exactly why I am that lucky: the reason is that I have acquired the skills and adeptness to sell services and products on the web. I would without a doubt be a flop in the real, physical world of sales, as I lack the thick skin to handle the frequent rejection. Yet on the web, oh boy can I sell.
I can sell on the internet because I learned the internet marketing skills and techniques that turn websites into cash-flow machines. I learned from the masters of the day and continue to upgrade my skills whenever I can. There is no room for complacency in internet marketing!
In the end, I find it impossible to comprehend how people complain about their jobs so much yet do nothing to change their set of skills or their line of work, to turn their passion into a career. The only things one needs to do so are equal measures of planning, commitment, and hard work to make it all happen. Aah, now I see the reason, it’s just like Thomas Edison said:
“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
