Enthusiasm with Work

“Nothing great was ever achieve without enthusiasm.”
– Ralph Waldo

Have you ever wondered why some people seem so full of life while others dread their everyday routine? The answer is simple. What separates the enthusiastic from the lost and down are their approaches to life.

Nowadays, many people take their lives for granted. In the digital age, there is so much to look forward to. There is plenty of opportunity, and it is at a level playing field. Anyone can jump right in and embark on an amazing journey.

In the past, there had been such opportunities as well. For example, John Rockefeller made it big with a net worth of almost $340 billion dollars by focusing his efforts on the blue sea (or opportunity) of refining oil. By the time he was done, he owned 90% of the oil in America.

Imagine what it would take to dominate any industry. It requires much time, dedicated, and research into a particular field. Some fields require more investments or money than others.

I personally choose to invest my time and efforts using technology that I am familiar with, such as blogging, YouTube, and eBooks. After some time, I might dabble into creating merchandise, in podcasts, and in audiobooks. But for now, I am focusing on just these three avenues of potential passive income.

In order to be great, you must be focused and committed to doing better every day. Part of that journey can be money. It doesn’t necessarily have to be money; but when you embark on the journey of abundance, money might be part of the equation.

If you want to have a larger impact on people, you may want to consider treading the path of entrepreneurship. You can take your time getting to know different fields and then selecting one that is best suited to your needs. It should make you feel excited trying those kinds of paths out.

How to Be Ready for Any Opportunity

“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” – Thomas A. Edison

In order to be ready for opportunities, we must first prepare ourselves. How do we do that? First, you must examine your life and see what it is that you enjoy:

  1. What are your talents?
  2. What are your hobbies?
  3. What are your skills?
  4. What do you want to try learning?

Once you prepare yourself mentally, physically, and emotionally, only then will you be able to hold onto opportunities. Don’t despair if you feel like you’ve missed out on opportunities. As they say, for every door that closes, there is another one that opens.

“It is with many enterprises as with striking fire; we do not meet with success except by reiterated efforts, and often at the instant when we despaired of success.” – Françoise de Maintenon

There may be times you fail, but if you stay strong and work your way up, you can seize any opportunity you desire. Plus, what is success without a journey of failures? We all fail at some point or another. Try not to wallow in fear, but gradually work your way up again. Eventually, with the power of perseverance, you can burst your way through any open door.

In case you do not feel ready for that dream job you’ve always desired or that business you’ve always wanted to start, you can examine your life and determine what it is that will allow you to lead a more fulfilling life:

  1. What are your weaknesses?
  2. What are your strengths?
  3. What areas would you like to improve upon?
  4. Where do you have to search for those opportunities that fit you best?

Some people say that opportunities come to them by luck. I argue that it is not by luck, but by actively bettering yourself. When you better yourself, you are able to seize any opportunity that comes your way.
