The purpose of life is not for all of us to be the same, and least of all, mediocre. Most of us came into the world much the same, naked and no experience. We all have developmental milestones; periods in our lives where we learn the things we carry with us all our lives.
Since there are percentages of the whole, such as 97% of online businesses are mediocre, and 3% are mega-successful, there must be a commonality in play.
“The number of self-employed, “free agents” in the U.S. has risen to 25 percent of the total working population, according to a new survey released by Troy-based Kelly Services Inc. (Nasdaq: KELYA). And 90 percent of those people said they voluntarily sought to become self-employed.”
Statisticians have a hard time with the number of entrepreneurs, self-employed, business owners, marketers, etc.; as the definitions of each term can vary wildly. Suffice it to say that marketers are a small percentage of the worlds working age population.
If assuming that statement is true, why is the percentage of truly successful online-marketers so small? My belief is that we have been taught to fail, taught by our educational system, our early childhood rearing, our life’s experiences, our political system, the daily input of garbage from television, radio, and other forms of entertainment, etc.
The dreams we had as children, the risk taking attitude, the enthusiasm, curiosity, creativity, and eagerness to learn has been put to sleep as we grow older and weary of life. Our general health and wellness play a big part in keeping that inner child hidden and unwilling to show him/herself.
If you want to end the mediocrity in your life, you must let your inner child out, allow him or her to once again enjoy life, explore the possibilities and chase the dreams. You start by examining your past and writing on paper the dreams you had as a child, try to remember what it was that made you give up on that dream.
