The goal of this post is to simply inform you that there are many different ways to work online from home. You can work from your phone or your computer by choosing one of the thousands of online opportunities that exist in our highly connected world today.
Not sure what you want to do? Ask yourself a few simple questions.
- What do I love to do?
- What do I enjoy doing?
- How can I help others?
- What do I believe in?
- What do I stand for?
Answering these questions will help you determine what kind of online work you want to do. You should ultimately choose something that love doing, something you enjoy doing, and something that can help other people in the process. We find the most joy in our lives when we spend our time serving others so this should be something you really take into consideration.
What Is Your Why? Know What Drives You.
For me it was simple. I wanted to be home with my kids. Being a mom was and continues to be my ultimate why. When you come to a decision about what you want to do, make the decision to start doing it. It will not be easy. You will have tough days, hard weeks, and frustrating months. But moment by moment, with your focus on your why you can begin to build your dreams and earn an income working online from home.
It’s not always easy to know what your why is. Maybe it’s just something you have a desire to do. That’s fine but when you have those hard days and those long frustrating months, friend you are going to need to lean into that why. You have to dig deep and discover the purpose behind what you are striving for.
Maybe you want to travel or retire with comfort. Maybe you have a sick loved one who needs you to be nearby. Get out of debt. Buy a house. Pay of a car. Pay off a student loan. Whatever it is, your why matters and it’s worth fighting for.
Spend some time considering what is really important to you. Let me put it this way. This morning when I woke up the thought entered my mind, “what if my time on earth is over soon. What would I be leaving behind for my husband and my children?” That seems like a morbid thought, but it made me sit up, get up, and get moving on my day. I decided the moment my feet hit the floor that I was not going to waste my day.
Let’s be busy creating a legacy. A wise woman builds her house. Proverbs 14:1.
