When most of us dive into our first home business venture, we are filled with visions of wealth, comfort, security and freedom.
We have a general idea of where we’d like to end up financially, and we work hard to get there.
Some of us make it there quickly, while others may take a little longer.
But at what point would we consider ourselves to be “successful?” Once we’re earning a million dollars a year? Once we can afford that mansion we’ve had our eye on? Once we’re wearing designer clothing?
Of course, success means different things to different people.
Perhaps to you, success means earning a little extra money to help with household extras.
To me it might mean earning more. To someone else, success might have nothing to do with money at all. They might strive for professional or personal accomplishments.
The meaning of success can vary from person to person, as can our beliefs about what it takes to truly be successful.
I had an interesting experience last week.
I submitted a request for work at home success stories to be featured on my website, and the response was quite surprising.
Not one response. That’s right, zero!
I submitted this request to several popular work-at-home communities, and I purposely placed no restrictions on what “success” meant. I was quite surprised by the lack of response.
Are there NO work at home successes out there?
I don’t believe that for a minute; I know there are many, MANY people working successfully from home.
So why wouldn’t they want to be featured? What could prevent them from believing they qualify as a “success story?”
