Why Do 9 Out of 10 People Never Live Their Dreams?
When we were kids we all had dreams. There were no boundaries to our imagination and anything was possible. Do you remember your dreams? What happened to your dreams? Did life get into its way? Are we all to busy to use our imagination?
Well, our whole life we've been told that being a dreamer is equal to being a loser. Only losers dream and who wants to be a loser. You know what I mean. "Get Real", "Welcome to Reality" you heard these phrases over and over. Let me tell you something, to be successful you need to learn to combine your imagination with reality. You need to deal with reality and you need imagination for direction. Only if you know where you're going you will be successful. Being your own boss is the only way to achieve financial freedom and a lifestyle where you actually live your dreams.
Why do 9 out of 10 people never live their dreams? 9 out of 10 people don't even remember their dreams. They only know the facts and the facts are that escaping the 9-5 treadmill is on everybody's mind, but only a few are actually taking action. Why is this? Do a few of these statements sound familiar to you?
These are 7 most popular excuses to NOT take action:
1. I don't know how
In my free eBook "The Truth About Starting An Internet business" I will walk you through the process of starting your own internet business step by step.
2. I don't have spare time in my busy lifestyle
You don't need to spend hours and hours to run your own internet business. The secret is a technique called "set and forget". Step away from the TV for a while and you will have more than enough time at hand to do this.
3. I am not patient enough
That's a tough one. Patience is the name of the game. A, there is no get rich method. B, there will be times when the money is just pouring in and there are times when nothing happens at all.
4. I don't want to fail (Fear of failure)
I can't give you a 100% guarantee that your online business idea will be a success and that you will achieve financial freedom. That's just the nature of owning a business. You also know that there's no such thing as job security. To change your current situation you need to take some risk. It's as simple as this.
5. I don't want to be rejected (Fear of Rejection)
Rejection is hardest thing to deal with. If you're doing business on the internet you will experience rejection. Some people are jealous, they are mean, they have issues, and you name it. The only advice I can give is, you need to learn how to deal with it. Luckily this is the exception. For the most part I met very pleasant people on the internet.
6. I don't have any money
The only difference between having money to start an internet business and having no money is that you need a lot more time without money. Money will expose you to more visitors in a shorter period of time. Your business success depends on what you have to offer and not on how fast you offer it. Content sells, not speed.
7. I don't want to be in sales
Technically you're already in sales. You're selling your valuable time for money. You can continue trading hours for money, which in fact will never bring you any wealth. Or you can start learning how to sell products other than your own time.
These are just a few excuses why most people don't take action in their life. Never make any improvements to their lives and pretty much waste their time. Some of us are perfectly fine with this, but if you are like me you want more and while you keep reading you will discover the power of bringing your online business idea to life.
If you're ready to take action, of being in charge of your life, provide a better life to your family and simply have more fun, browse my web site and start realizing your online business idea today.

If The Fear Fits...Dont Wear It!
Undoubtedly one of the most challenging tasks we can face everyday is fighting the fear of failure. At one time or another every single person has had to face the fear of stepping out into an unfamiliar area and leaving his comfort zone and entering the twilight zone.
Comment on Extra Ordinary Men of Our Time
Remember during the missions of Apollo. And others we knew every astronaut by name, we made them heroes. We celebrated their bravery. And they were brave too. If you ever get to Alamogordo Space Museum, Lyndon B Johnson Space Center in Houston or Kennedy Space Center and Museum in FL and look at the little tuna cans these guys went up in space in you then know just how brave they were. If you get a chance go to the Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson AZ and look at the old brave technology you will simply want to relive a little of American technology, guts, glory and challenge.

Rules To Live Life By
How often have we heard ourselves complaining about how unlucky we are in life or how things are just not working out right for us. However, what we so easily forget is that at some time before in lives, luck has favoured us.But it is human nature whereby we remember only what didn't work for us but easily forget the things that happened in our favour. There are several things in life that we must cherish and be thankful to God for. One important thing that we must do is make a list of all the good things that have happened to us or all the blessings we have got and refer to that list whenever we feel upset or uncared for. Actually this is the same logic, which we use when we read old love letters because they remind us of happy times and cherished memories. Here is a list of ten quotations and how we can interpret these to lead a happier life.

The Answer Is The Question ... Asking The Right Questions!
We all have questions about our lives, directions, and destinies. It is the curiosity of the unknown that intrigues us to ask of the future. It is the stress of the present and events of the past that cause us to wish for a future. But, under circumstances and with events that create stresses and distortions, our questions, demands, and wishes can create a future that is specifically implemented to answer our questions.

Growing Out of Your Comfort Zone
It has been said that "if you are not growing, you're dying." As human beings, we are on a constant journey called life. Rick Warren has been quite successful at stimulating thought and faith in his fine book, A Purpose Driven Life, suggesting that we are all here on Earth for a reason. I would like to propose that the concept of success is purpose-driven too. Earl Nightingale referred to success as the "continuing pursuit of a worthy ideal" and spoke of it often. I submit then, that success is not a destination, but a purposeful journey.

The Art of Scripting Your Life
Writing a 'life script' is like writing a movie script. You need to create a feeling, evoke emotional responses and create the scenarios. You dream up the story, you write the lines and act it out. Why? Because you have the ability to create your life as you would like it to be. So many people live their life with the concept that they play whatever hand is dealt them. This can feel un-empowering, depressing and instill feelings of resignation and pain. You have so much more to do with your life plan than you realize.
Nothing To Lose
I stormed out of the office and headed for the patio area in front of my office building. It was October 2003, and everybody knew what happened. Ever since our division consolidated in February 2002, there had been more "closed door" conversations than ever, and when they involved me, I usually came out angry. This time I was madder than ever. I was sick of the office politics, sick of the cliques, sick of people sneaking around the rules ? and you can only take all of that being sick so long before you explode. After complaining to my supervisor for the umpteenth time about the state of affairs, we both cracked. I told her I was disappointed at the lack of morals and integrity, and she told me that I needed to just shut up and get professional help for depression if that's what it took to quit complaining. Here is the ironic part: I have a degree in psychology.

Five Ways to Stand Out from the Crowd
Some people are content to just to be another face in the crowd. By assuming this attitude, they are saying, in effect, to the rest of the world, I'm just average; there's nothing special about me. For those of us who would rather stand out from the crowd, there are some relatively easy ways in which we can accomplish this mission. None of them require a whole lot of skill or money. They do, however, require a little bit of commitment on our part.
