Internet Lifestyle: Don’t Let Your Present Financial State Stop You

Internet Lifestyle: Don’t Let Your Present Financial State Stop You

internet lifestyle

    A lot of people have big dreams, positive aspirations and cute destinies, but only 2 in 20 see their hopes materialize.

    The Internet lifestyle could be likened to financial freedom, when you’re in charge of affairs, you can travel the world of your dreams, sail the Pacific if you want, live in nice environment where the sounds of morning birds ooze out from the riverbanks.

    You looked at your life (and the current business you run), and you’re not even close to financial security — let alone freedom. The world seems abstract from your end, and you keep asking yourself:

    “Isn’t there a way to change my life?”

    Don’t be perturbed — there is a way out of every ugly situation. But it’s never a smooth journey. Earning six figures annually is not an illusion – it’s actually doable. In this post I want to give a wake-up call to your inner spirit. Have an open mind as we explore the world of Internet opportunities and how to grab the ripe slices.

    Are you ready?

    Stop Limiting Your Life

    The greatest enemy of man is himself. If you could break loose from your inner thoughts that tell you success is far off, then there is no mountain anywhere you cannot climb. In fact, most of the things you’ve been taught about generating income may not be worth it.

    What do I mean?

    The cliché that you should go to school, study and get a good job afterwards (along with a bag of benefits) is a limiting factor. We’re living in the information age, where a single idea can settle a man or woman financially for the rest of their lives. Academic qualification has its place in this world, but not necessarily in the areas of making money and touching lives around the world.

    I think the real education is outside of the tertiary institutions. The real education you need is right where you are – in your environment: the people, events, news, technology, communication, business startups, etc. You can learn so much from the above mentioned channels than in the four walls of a university.

    With that in mind, I’m sure you’re now closer to living the Internet lifestyle. If that’s the case, here are four point checklists to further speed up your journey.

    1. Decide on a Course from Day One: It’s the most lucrative step you can take towards making a dream come true. This course is your channel of earning in life. When properly approached, it’s going to set you free financially.
    2. Aim for Six Figures Annually: Those who do not set their mark to earn six figures may not get there, irrespective of hard work. Making a living on the Internet is a deliberate effort. Challenge yourself to earn six figures annually, but attack this goal creatively.
    3. Don’t Reinvent the Wheel: it’s a big mistake and may land you in a jungle where there is no hope of survival. Stay with proven systems and realize your dreams faster.
    4. Build a System, Not a Business: Yes, a system is what guarantees financial freedom. Those who live the Internet lifestyle today have systems, not mere business enterprises. A system stays even when the business is gone. It’s your ultimate goal.

    Decide on a Course from Day One

    What exactly do you want from life?

    A ‘course’ in this instance refers to a chosen business model. And believe me, for you to live the Internet lifestyle you need to start building something that can generate income.

    Successful people choose a definite path in life and stay there. They kept pace with the times. They complained at some point but didn’t give up. Think of the likes of Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg. It wasn’t an easy journey when they started out, but today they’ve built systems that can last for generations.

    I’ve chosen a unique path towards achieving my goals. As a freelance writer, I’m dedicated to changing the world with words, and to help small business entrepreneurs experience a cooler side of the world and grow their business. It’s my course – what’s yours?

    Have you discovered what you’ve been called to do on earth? You should render a unique service to the world. It doesn’t matter how vague the vision seems, success is around the corner. Stick to the course, you’ll laugh louder!

    Aim for Six Figures Annually

    Can you earn six figures in 12 months?

    Of course you can, if that’s your goal and you work it out. An earnings of $100,000 for a particular year means you can live the Internet lifestyle if every stead remains equal. But this income seems so huge in my eye, and I’m sure you’re wondering how you can make so much.

    A great way to simplify this is to breakdown the amount by 12 months. And afterwards, divide the result by 30 days.

    100,000 divided by 12 = $8333.33/month

    Advertising

    $8333.33 divided by 30 = $277.78/daily

    Wow, we’re getting somewhere. It seems six figures is not that big!

    So, is it possible to earn $277.78 every single day?

    Absolutely…it’s 100% possible!

    A lot of bloggers and affiliate marketers generate over $500 daily. Freelance writers can also boast of making that much. So, can you if you put your mind to it.

    This is the only amount that’s worth it. As you pursue a course towards financial freedom, don’t accept mediocre advice or give up. Whatever business model you chose should bring you closer to earning six figures annually; and $277.78 on a daily basis. Can you do that?

    Don’t Reinvent the Wheel…Not One Bit

    Small, midsized and multinational businesses are resorting to the Internet for expansion. Potential customers have all migrated to the Internet for convenience. If you’re not getting the ‘real juice’ online, something is definitely wrong. Maybe you’re trying to reinvent the wheel — and if that’s the case…why?

    Advertising

    Is it that you want to change the world with a unique idea, something phenomenal and powerful? Yes, that’s a nice course and I urge you to pursue it. But for the sake of earning six figures within the next five years or thereabouts, you need to align yourself with proven business models and explore it.

    The world is a big place; there are no limitations except the ones you make up in your mind. And most of the time we do what we have to do…until we can do what we want to do. Living the Internet lifestyle is possible, but reinventing the wheel will only hinder your speed. Affiliate marketing, product creation, blogging, website-flipping and domain packing, pay-per-click publishing, AdWords arbitrage and freelance business are all lucrative ventures.

    Any of these models can yield six figures annually if you give your heart to it. So don’t try to create a new business model; it’ll definitely take time before you gain notice. Stay with proven money-making channels. Explore as much as you can and impact your world positively.

    Build a System, Not a Business

    In as much as I’m an advocate of starting your business, I strongly believe you should also grow. Think out-of-the-box and transform it into a system. A system is the only guarantee for financial freedom. Investors and business owners know what I’m saying.

    A true Internet entrepreneur who is living in an exquisite mansion, traveling the world over and supporting the less-privileged doesn’t have a business anymore. They have a system.

    A system will continue to generate income, irrespective of economic states or weather changes. Typical systems online are Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Amazon. These are no longer small businesses and since they’re listed in Fortune 500 Magazine as the Top 100 Thriving Companies in the United States, it surely means they’re doing the right things. You should learn from them. But how?

    Reinvest into your small and startup business. Build more niche sites and monetize them. Outsource a handful of tasks to capable hands (freelance writers, developers, designers, researchers, virtual assistants, etc.). Focus on what you enjoy doing and build a strong foundation for a blissful Internet lifestyle.

    Internet Lifestyle Takeaway

    Have clear goals for your life, and be specific on the business model you chose. It’s all about being the best at what you do, and to position your life where the cool rays from nature can shine upon you.

    5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

    5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

    Everyone experiences mental stress at one time or another. Maybe you’re starting a new career, job, or business, or you feel incredibly overwhelmed between work, parenting, and your love life (or a lack of it). It could even be that you simply feel that you have way too much to do and not enough time to do it,  plus, on top of everything, nothing seems to be going the way it should!

    Yup, we all experience mental stress from time-to-time, and that’s okay as long as you have the tools, techniques and knowledge that allow you to fully relieve it once it comes.

    Here are 5 tips for relieving mental stress when it comes so you can function at your best while feeling good (and doing well) in work, love, or life:

    1. Get Rationally Optimistic

    Mental stress starts with your perception of your experiences. For instance, most people get stressed out when they perceive their reality as “being wrong” in some way. Essentially, they have a set idea of how things “should be” at any given moment, and when reality ends up being different (not even necessarily bad), they get stressed.

    This process is simply a result of perception and can be easily “fixed” by recognizing that although life might not always be going as YOU think it should, it’s still going as it should—for your own benefit.

    In fact, once you fully recognize that everything in your life ultimately happens for your own growth, progress, and development—so you can achieve your goals and dreams—your perception works in your favor. You soon process and respond to your experience of life differently, for your advantage. That’s the essence of becoming “rationally optimistic.”

    The result: no more mental stress.

    2. Unplug

    Just like you might need to unplug your computer when it starts acting all crazy, you should also “unplug” your mind.

    Advertising

    How on earth do you unplug your mind? Simple: just meditate.

    It isn’t nearly difficult or complicated as some people think, so, if you don’t already meditate, give it a try. Whether you meditate for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 2 hours, this is a surefire way to reduce mental stress.

    Meditation has been scientifically proven to relax your body (resulting in less mental stress), while also reducing anxiety and high blood pressure.

    3. Easy on the Caffeine

    Yes, we know, we know—everyone loves a nice java buzz, and that’s okay, but there’s a fine line between a small caffeine pick-me-up and a racing heart and mind that throws you into a frenzy of mental stress.

    Advertising

    Try giving up caffeine for a while and see how you feel. And, if that’s completely out of the question for you, at least try to minimize it. You might find that lots of your mental stress mysteriously “disappears” as your caffeine intake goes down.

    4. Attack Mental Stress Via the Back Door

    That’s right: your body and mind are part of the whole being, and are constantly influencing and affecting each other. If you’re experiencing a lot of mental stress, try to reduce it by calming your body down—a calm body equals a calmer mind.

    How do you calm your body down and reduce physical stress? A  great way to reduce physical stress (thereby reducing mental stress) is to take natural supplements that are proven to reduce stress and anxiety while lifting your mood. Three good ones to look into are kava-kava, St John’s wort, and rhodiola rosea:

    • Kava-kava is a natural plant known to have mild sedative properties, and you should be able to find it at your natural health food store or vitamin store. It’s available in capsules or liquid extract form.
    • St John’s wort is a natural flower used to treat depression. Again, it’s found at your local health store in capsules or liquid. Because it uplifts mood (enabling you to see the brighter side of all experiences) it helps relieve mental stress as well.
    • Rhodiola rosea is a natural plant shown to reduce stress and uplift mood, and Russian athletes have been using it forever. Like the other two supplements mentioned, rhodiola rosea can be found at your natural health store in capsule or liquid form.

    While these supplements are all natural and can be very helpful for most people, always check with your health care provider first as they can cause side-effects depending on your current health situation etc.

    5. Good Old-Fashioned Exercise

    This tip has been around forever because it works. Nothing relieves mental stress like running, kickboxing—you name it. Anything super-physical will wipe out most of your mental stresses once the exercise endorphins (happy chemicals) are released into your brain.

    The result: mental stress will be gone!

    So, if you’re feeling overwhelmed or just plain stressed, try using some of the above tips. You can even print this out or save it to refer to regularly.
