There are countless reasons for you to start your own work
at home business. The main reason is to generate income. But what
will you use the extra income for? The reasons may include getting
out of debt, saving for a child's college education, buying a home or
car, early retirement, overcome insufficient income, or just to
improve your lifestyle overall. Whatever the reason, it is important
to your success to identify it and stay focused on it. There are
several reasons for this.
First off, identifying your why will get you started. I don't know
how many people investigate starting a work at home business but
never get started. A strong why will enable you to take that all
important first step. If your why is strong enough, you can attain it
and you will do what it takes to achieve it.
Secondly, when you identify your why, you have a goal to work towards
and a target to aim at. Staying focused on your why enables you to
keep going as you are reminded why you are doing all the hard work
involved in working at home.
Thirdly, identifying your why will help you get through those days
when things look bleak. I can tell you from experience that there are
times when you will want to quit. There are many ups and downs when
working at home. You will begin to doubt that that this just won't
work. When you stay focused on your why, you are constantly reminded
to not give up. In the end it will be worth it.
Fourthly, focusing on your why will enable you to battle the
doubters. You know them. They are the people, often close to you,
that tell you how foolish your undertaking is. They let you know up
front that you are wasting your time. But your why, if you stay
focused on it, will help you overcome these dissenters.
Fifthly, identifying your why will help you in making decisions about
your business. There have been times when I had a decision to make
about my work at home opportunity. Should I spend money on this,
should I take the time to do that? My why was always there, enabling
me to make a decision that I would not have made had I not had a goal
or vision that I was working towards.
Sixthly, your why will cause you to work harder and longer. There may
be days when you just don't feel like working. You would rather sit
in front of the TV or go somewhere or just take a nap. When that
"why" is engrained in your soul, you won't be able to ignore it. You
will spend the necessary time to work at becoming a success with your
business. That doesn't mean that you ignore your family. It does mean
that you will use more of your free time to work towards your goal.
Finally, identifying your why will cause you to be a success. If your
goal is strong enough, you will succeed. A strong why will cause you
to do pretty much whatever it takes to achieve it. There is nothing
that will cause you to push forward like a strong why. The question
is, "Have you identified yours?"
