How to Escape the 9 to 5 "Rat Race" - 3 Simple Steps to Becoming Your Own Boss

~ Decided that you have had enough of the 9 to 5 "Rat Race", do you want to become your own boss and jump off the treadmill of life? If you are fed up of wishing your life away working for your weekends, counting down days to your next holiday, basically working to be retired the I am sure you will enjoy my 3 simple steps to becoming your own boss. I also recommend personal development to build your individual strength. ~

Step 1:
Make a commitment to yourself and confirm your personal "Whys" for wanting to escape the 9 to 5 world of working for someone else. Why do you feel this way? What gave you this desire? On a scale of 1-10 how important is this change to you?

Write it out, journalize your reasoning behind this decision. You will find by writing down how you feel your commitment to yourself will become stronger. This way you can also go back through your journal when ever you need some motivation. Once you are clear on your personal "Whys" start to investigate what business opportunities are available to you, what fits your criteria?

As we approach 2010 personal development home based business opportunities are growing stronger in force and many people are seeing a huge amount of success in this area. From personal experience I feel the mix of personal development and owning your own business is also a great way to keep your motivation high and the positive vibes flowing.

Step 2:
Avoid procrastination. Start today! Don't delay! Go for it and trust your vibes, what is your heart telling you? Sometimes our head can take over when it comes to life changing decisions, from my own experience I know that mine did when I first started out on my new path in life with my personal development home business. I was grateful to have chose an opportunity which was so dear to my heart which also gave me personal strength, motivation and an amazing community of like minded people walking the journey together. I too had the added benefit of a very comprehensive training and support schedule to ensure I had everything I needed to become a success - this point is key!

Now I said go for it and trust your vibes but please do make sure that your chosen opportunity feels "right" for you. Consider my points above with regards to support and training but also be open to synchronicities which are now happening in your life, do you find yourself coming across the same opportunity again and again? Do things keep popping into your daily routine which take you back to the opportunity you are looking into? This can also be a sign that you are on the right track.

Step 3:
Start small, take baby steps forward - trust me you will feel better once you have a "light at the end of the tunnel". Your 9 to 5 job will seem much more manageable when you have your own venture on the side. You can then work towards covering your monthly earning's and outgoings needed through your part time home business prior to escaping the 9 to 5 job. This way you also have the faith in yourself and know that you can make your home business opportunity work for you. You may have to take a step outside your comfort zone but this will be worthwhile when you are able to make a huge leap forward in life.

Take a moment to imagine how happy you will feel once you have quit the 9 to 5 "Rat Race" once you are free of the world of working for someone else. When you can be your own boss! When this feeling kicks in you will be well on your way to total personal and financial freedom. When you are living YOUR dream and not someone else's, life gets a whole lot better. Trust me, its true!
