Quick Start Challenge Week 2 Challenge
Welcome back to the next step of this whole Quick Start Challenge 2018 thingy that is going on.
If you have no idea what The Quick Start Challenge is, then go ahead and read this short post... READ THIS
Week one has come and gone. So far not much to it. Bring on week two...
Well, this weeks challenge was supposed to be easier and way more fun, however, I think it turned out to be much harder for me.
You see, this weeks challenge was: "Your Dream Life".
"How cool!" I thought. Until I realised that I had absolutely no idea what my ideal life even looks like!
Could it be something like this...
My Ideal Life
Now this might come as a surprise for you,(it did to me!), but my ideal life isn't really set on things. I mean, yes I would want the latest luxury gadget, or the newest model Maserati, but there is something else...
Something I never really thought of...
Something called... Freedom
Why I started building an Online Business
Coming from a family that is not well off, you realise even faster that your success will rely on only one thing... yourself!
Since I can remember, I was adimant that I would be a millionaire by the time I reach the age of 30. Well, that was 2 years ago!
I tried different ways of making money for myself and got suckered into Amway...
Realising that selling expensive soap wasn't going to make me wealthy, I did some serious research and found that the real road to success lies online...
No longer am I stuck just trying to sell to people in my local area, but now I have the entire world at my fingertips!
What do I Want Out of My Business
This is easy to answer, but took me a very long (and stupid) amount of time.
The answer is... Freedom!
Let me explain what I mean...
What is my Dream Life
I can go on a rant telling you how I would like to live in The United States of America, the land of opportunity, and how I would like to have a billion dollars and never work a day in my life... but the realistic (and much more a attainable) goal is to have freedom.
I want the choice of what I would like to do on a specific day... I would like to have the choice of what I want to eat that day and not 'what can I afford'... The choice of whether I want to get some extra work done or whether I would like to spend more time with my family that day... you know... Choice!
This might seem so trivial, but I truelly believe that 'choice' is what sets all of us free.
What is my Monthly Income Goal to make this Happen
This is a tricky question to answer because there is no real answer as the price of freedom/choices differ every single day. So let me rather take a guess...
Living in a country that is fairly cheap to live in, I would have to say that R30,000-00 ZAR would suffice. (This is the amount that I currently earn to maintain my 'not great but not terrible' lifestyle.)
What is ZAR? That is our currency. The South African Rand.
R30,000-00 ZAR is around $2000-00 USD.
Not a lot of money by any means.
But that $2000-00 per month, well that to me is the price of freedom. The price of choice.
$2000-00 per month is my income goal!
