At a certain point in our lives, nearly each and every one of us have found ourselves in the unenviable position of being cash strapped for any number of reasons such as losing a job, falling ill, having unmanageable credit card bills and so on. When a situation arises in our lives where we find we do not have enough money coming in to meet our expenses or allow us to live the sort of life we desire, we begin to search for solutions. Sadly, our modern culture has taught us to look for an instant resolution to our problems rather than devising a long term and well thought out strategy that will ensure our security.
It is imperative to recognize that fast and easy solutions to financial hardship don’t exist. The above statement is not taking a negative stance. Recognizing that recovering from financial difficulty will take internal organization, resolve, and action that will ultimately set in play a long-term recovery leading to economic security and independence, is taking both a healthy and realistic attitude. Ultimately, the solution to our problems lies within our own capacities as individuals, and if we chose to recognize this, we will find our individual capacities to be infinite. Relying on some external source and simply saying, “fix it” won’t accomplish anything except to further disappoint us.
The concept of a home based business fits the scheme of this topic. Finding oneself in dire economic straits can lead on to grasp at the “home business straw” in hopes of grabbing onto the brass ring leading to an instant wealth and success which in reality does not exist. Yet, if we acknowledge that our internal capacities are indeed infinite, then a home based business can lead us to success and independence down the road IF we form a proper strategy.
If you cannot pay our bills do not rely on a home based business to solve that situation for you tomorrow. It won’t. Period. You must find a source of income for your immediate needs. Excellent employment resources exist on the Internet such as Yahoo Hot Jobs http://hotjobs.yahoo.com/ and Monster http://www.monster.com . Find the solid salary you will need until you can “phase in” your chosen home based business.
If your credit is in ruins, don’t rely on a home based business to fix your credit for you tomorrow, it won’t. Consider, perhaps consulting with professionals to help you sort out your credit issues while you work on your home based business in your spare time.
There is no shame in economic hardship. Yet grasping at non-existent straws to end current discomfort is foolish. Hunkering down and coping with the reality of the situation is admirable and takes courage. If you desire to reverse your situation by starting a home based business, proceed in a well thought out manner to lay the groundwork for your ultimate home business success taking your immediate priorities into consideration and acting accordingly. Ultimately, by tapping into your infinite capacity in a strategic rather than a wishful manner, you may well exceed your wildest home business ambitions!
