Can I do this?

Everyone questions whether or not they will be able to make money from home, and I mean everyone. And my answer is yes! I honestly believe that anyone can do anything they want to do, that is... if they want it bad enough. However, if you don't like what your doing, it can still be done, it will just be much...much more draining and difficult to do so. When you absolutely love what you do, no matter what that is or what area of life it is pertaining too, you do it because that is what you want to do and not what you think you have to do.

For example, when I first started my journey in the work at home world, I had no idea what I was doing or even what I wanted to do for sure. I was intrigued by the idea of being able to do the work once and be paid on it forever. I just didn't know how hard it was going to be. Everyone that I talked to made it sound so simple. I had absolutely no idea.

I failed miserably for many years. I put my all into something that I didn't like doing. I couldn't sell products that to me were extremely over priced. I couldn't bring other people into this business knowing what I knew, and how difficult it was. I wasn't going to be that person that tells you what you want to hear just to get you to join. It is not worth it! When you have to "trick" someone into joining your team, or buying your products, you will never make it.

It was not only physically draining, but financially as well. Instead of making money, I was spending it. After a little over 2 years I finally decided that there was no way I was ever going to be able to make myself believe that this was the right thing to do. So I quit.

Now, I love what I do! I can tell everyone I know, or don't know. And even if I didn't make it the first few times around, I did now, and that is all that matters. I also learned many valuable lessons along the way. I was able to see both sides of the field and compare the two to see what made one so different from the other.

It doesn't matter what you do...if you are exercising because it is what you WANT to do & not what you think you HAVE to do, it will work. If you go to college because it's what you WANT to do & not what your parents say you HAVE to do, you will learn more. If you read a book because you WANT to read it & not because you HAVE to do it in order to pass a class or because someone is making you do it, you will buzz right on through it.

It's just that simple, when you love what you do, you wake up everyday ready to dig right in. It will come through in your voice and your attitude and everything about you. That is when you know, for a fact, that you can do anything!

Crystal, you made some awesome points. I, too, tried to do direct sales. Not once but several times.
I am not a sales person and these just weren't the right types of jobs or businesses for me.

Sometimes, it takes time as well as trial and error to find what you are good at and meant to do!
