People need to know HOW to earn money in a tough global economy.
I call it the “5-P-Factor”. It’s a simple recipe.
1. It has to be Positive
2. It must serve a Purpose
3. It has to be Practical.
4. You MUST be Passionate about what you are doing.
5. You are entitled to make an honest Profit from what you create.
Taking something that you know, a food recipe, hard times, tips you learned about parenting – it can be anything, and it must be something people can benefit from.
You can start a blog.
You can create an e-book AND publish it.
You can start a group (like Weight Watchers) – How about “Jerk Watchers”. A small group of people either in person or global on line, where you share tips, signs to watch out for, common traits, lessons you’ve learned and sharing it with others.
You really have to LOVE what you are doing. Making a difference and not just a dollar. Every single good thing in our world was created with someone being positive – having a positive attitude. The last thing we need is more negativity.
Making a real difference serves a purpose that millions of people can benefit from.
Sharing tips or your story, the hard times you’ve been through and what you have learned to ensure that others don’t go through the same difficulty is practical – because you care, and people WILL feel it!
Because whatever you create comes from your HEART, this means you feel PASSIONATE about it. Passion is a huge magnetic draw in the universe. It brings to you exactly what you focus on, and you are entitled to charge a fee to earn money to buy food in return for what you put out for others.
Take your focus OFF how hard things are, and create a new focus on how much of a difference you can make.
You can start an on-line e-zine, and people can advertise in it.
You can start a blog that becomes really popular – so popular that you create a book that people want and need.
Whatever it is that you do honestly has to come naturally to you. Any talent you have that you were born with is within you so you can express it outside of you.
You can naturally be a fantastic cook. Start a food truck, and create a cook book to go along with your food.
Maybe you have recipes from your your beloved Grandma who is no longer here. You can create the cook book in her name, and share the recipes. This is actually something that I am doing. You’ll know it when I post it, after it is published.
No matter what you do, if it matters to you, and if it makes a profound difference in your life, it can also make a profound difference for so many people.
Take the doubts in your head and put them on a virtual shelf. You can re-visit them at any time. In its place put certainty. You are certain that what you are doing makes a difference. Helpful things do spread by word of mouth.
Stop thinking small. Think HUGE! Create a picture in your mind of making a HUGE difference and this naturally means that you are earning a huge living because it is your birthright, just as it is for everybody else.
Take the word “competition” and toss it. In its place put collaboration. In my field, authors collaborate together to help humanity.
Take the word “should” kick it out of the English language and replace it with the word “prefer”. You “prefer” to live your life on your terms, and only on your terms.
Take the word “can’t” and do yourself a serious favor – tell yourself you CAN.
If there is something you love to do, something you are naturally good at, you most definitely CAN earn a living doing it while you serve others in the most positive manner at the same time.
As for the naysayers in your life – tell them nothing. Speak about domestic chores. Stop feeding negative people who keep telling you what you “should” do (that you have zero interest in doing) and let them know how you dusted your home, AND cleaned out your closet! THIS is what you tell the naysayers. Your actions and your results will speak for themselves. Cease all complaining and all negative self talk. In other words, stop telling yourself insulting remarks and instead take a look in the mirror and tell yourself three good qualities based on your observable actions.
This mirror dialogue makes a massive difference for self esteem. So you have it from the inside out, this way you always have it and no one can ever take it away from you.
You held the door open for an elderly person walking into a store.
Three qualities that action represents are caring, kind and considerate.
You have to bond with yourself and become your own best friend. Do the above twice a day for a year and see how you feel about yourself. I did this for two years and it honestly made a huge difference.
Remember that your jo
b must be your JOY.
It must bring you to life so you feel happy about what you are doing, and you can see how it can spread.
And finally, trust that when your motives are pure, and you set out to make a difference, the universe is going to return it to you a hundred fold.
Give yourself the chance to make a difference and you will experience what making a difference is all about – and that is love.
