It seems like every single day I field questions like:
How do you work from home?
Is it legit?
Do you think I could do it too?
Some people are happy going to work every day. They enjoy working away from home in an office, store, or cubicle. Though I’m not one of them, I am thrilled that they have found their place in this life.
The rest of us are aching for a different journey. We want a path that gives us the freedom to set our own hours, to be our own boss, and to work from anywhere that isn’t an office, store, or cubicle. We just don’t know how to get there.
Recently, I’ve talked to several friends who are successfully working from home. I’ve asked them about their journey, how they came to do what they currently do, and how they got started.
Amazingly, although they have different businesses and careers, they all gave me almost the same answers.
3 keys to the journey:
1) It takes FAITH. A successful journey takes faith in a God bigger than you can ever imagine and faith in the gifts and abilities that He has gifted you.
Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see. Hebrews 11:1 (nlt)
Faith becomes the compass that directs every path journeyed.
2) It takes a VISION. Before you begin any journey, you need a vision. Make goals and write them down. Keep them in front of you. Goals keep you focused.
Where there is no vision, the people perish. Proverbs 29:18 (kjv)
Vision becomes True North on your compass.
3) It takes COURAGE. Every journey presents opportunities to give up and quit your dream. It takes courage to stay the course when the days are long and hard.
Be strong and courageous! Joshua 1:6 (nlt)
Courage keeps the compass in front of you.
A successful journey isn’t an easy one but successful people don’t choose the easy path, they choose the path that’s worth it.
And, they journey with faith, vision, and courage.
