The Desire for Personal Fulfillment
I really had no idea how to start a small business, I just knew that I wanted to. Everyone has their own reasons for wanting to become self-employed, but I think there is one thing in common: the desire for personal fulfillment. Each of us has been striving to fulfill our dreams since the day we were born. The one sure way to make a dream come true is by following it.
"If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it."
~ William Arthur Ward
From Dream to Reality
Ah, but how exactly does one follow a dream? First you must recognize it. If you are not sure what your dream (or wish, or goal) is, you must spend some time getting to know yourself. It should become clear once you realize what truly makes you happy. Solidify that dream-hold it in your mind and become so familiar with it that it seems REAL. Nothing in this universe was created without first having been just a thought. Build your thought up in your mind and really believe that it is already a reality. Act as if your dream/thought is true at this very moment.
The Power of Attraction
At this point, you will begin to attract the tools you need to accomplish your goal. You'll meet the people who will help you reach your goal (thanks Bob Stewart!). You'll discover a class, or webinar (like Blogging Bootcamp at Activerain University), or a book, or an event, or whatever it is that you need. Each step along the way will lead you to the next one. One of the steps I took along the way was becoming an Activerain member, and the next day I took Bob Stewart's webinar. That led me to the next step of beginning to blog, which I know in turn will lead me to the next step in fulfilling my dream of working as a professional home stager.
