For Thing To Change For You, You Must Be Willing To Change!

Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won't. So that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can't.

Hello, I’m Mantist Oryem. Found of GetPaidLivingYourPassion.Com

By day, I work in IT field and been working in IT for over 7 years in both private and government sector.

To be honest, starting a business was not something I thought I would get into. 

The only reason I started building my own business is because I was not happy with the lifestyle my job was giving me.

I remember it was like yesterday. It was 4 years ago. I was 25. A starving artist living from pay cheque to pay cheque. I’ve just started dating this beautiful Italian lady with expensive taste. I remembered when we dated for about 4 months or so, she came to me and said, “You know, my mum said, you should take me to nice restaurant some time.” I was like, “thank you very much for going to your mum behind my back.” 🙂

In her defends, the nicest restaurant I took her up until then was Nando and grill burger shops. She’s from a rich upbringing and refused to settle for that.

Today, she is the mother of my son, my best friend and my biggest supporter in the world. They’re the reason I wake up early in the morning and working late into the night.

I had strong desire to spend more time with her. Which I couldn’t like I wanted to because I was spending 8 hours plus a day at a job. On top of that, I could barely find time for working out and creating music something I really love to do more off. 

My desired for personal and financial freedom became so strong that pushes me to act in spite of all the fears, doubts and poor self image that was stopping me. 

I’ve learned a BIG lesson from that experience. As long as you have a BIG emotional dreams, you can almost always overcome any challenges, setbacks and difficulties that come your way in pursuit of your desire goals. If you don’t have big emotional dreams, don’t even get started. You’re not going to make it. 

I knew I could not just quit my job no matter how desperately I wanted to leave. Because I needed the money from my job to cover my bills. 

I started looking for something that I could start outside my job and build real income with to a point where I could match my job income so that I could walk away from that job I hated into doing something I enjoy full-time.

And that was 4 years ago when I was 25. Today, I have created several sources of incomes. I can make money through my IT field. I can make money through my music production business. I can make money through my consulting business. I can make money through my music albums And I did all that outside my 9-5 jobs. 

One thing I don’t like with those business module is that, I have to be physically present to make the money. That mean, I have money but I have no time because I am trading my time for the money. Which mean, I still don’t have the time to spend with the initial people I Ioved although it’s much better now than 4 years ago.

The goal for me was total control of my life from day one. Not just in money but also in time. I realise that the solution is to learn how to create passive income. Now, if you’re not aware what passive income is, it’s making money while you sleep.

There Are Three Things You Must Do In Order To Become Successful.

You Must Develop The Right Mindset, Discover Your Passion In Life, And Find The Right Vehicle That Expresses That Passion.

Building a successful business asset required a certain type of mindset. You can not think like a small business owner and expect to create asset based business which required big business thinking approach. 

Similarly, you can not think like an employee and expect to succeed as an entrepreneur. The first steps is a willingness to develop a new mindset. I knew that I needed to make a shift in thinking and develop a whole new thought process and mindset so I can produced the desire outcomes – which is passive income. 

So, in the last few months, I’ve been doing my diligent research and looking at all the different ways to create passive income. 

I found one in online business asset through a referral to a private mentorship group. I found that, each year they take few qualified individuals on and help them develop their own business asset through coaching and mentorship. I pursue them and after going through a series of qualification process, I got excepted in their mentorship program.  Currently, I am tapping into their mentorship program to develop my own assets outside what I already do so that I can match and replace my 9-5 job income with passive income in the next 18 – 48 months.

Right now, we’re taking a lot of people through a selection process to see who can qualify as a potential business partner. I am putting together few accountability business partners for the 2 to 5 year business plan. Few group of individuals who share the same vision and want to end up where I want to end up in life.

If you qualify, I will be your accountability partner and you will be mine. I will help you stay on track reaching your goals and you help me. Together we’ll leverage each other to become top performance and higher achievers in the industry.

Our commitment to each other will involves communicating regularly and working in collaboration until we both achieve our desire financial goals. We will allocate 5 to 10 minutes to speak each day to discuss our intentions for the day and 1 hour each week to review our activities and results for the week. It helps us both stay focus and making progress instead of wasting time because we focus solely on desire outcomes and results nothing else.

Have You Ever Stop To Think About The Price You Are currently Paying For The Work You Do.

I don't know about you but when I came across the following article, it got me thinking whether what I was doing for a living was the right vehicle to a healthy, wealthy, prosperous and happy life. I'll let you evaluate for yourself about your experience in your own life.

Here is the article. Not Long Ago, Time Magazine’s Cover Story Highlighted The Price Paid For Successful Careers:

61% of 500 professionals said that “earning a living today requires so much effort that it’s difficult to find time to enjoy life”.
89% said it was important for them to spend more time with their families, something that their careers made difficult.
38% said that they were cutting back on sleep to earn more money.
69% said they’d like to “slow down and live a more relaxed life”.
56% wanted to find more time for personal interests and hobbies.

What Stop Most People To Venture Into Business

These are few myths that stop most people from starting their own business. They certainly almost stop me.

4 biggest challenges that almost stop me from venturing into business 4 years ago.

  1. I have no time myth
  2. I have no money myth
  3. I have no business skills
  4. I don’t know about you but this one was the BIGGEST one for me. Poor self image. The I can’t do it negative self talk.

If you are reading this, I can assume you’re in one of two groups.

Group number 1. You’re happy where you’re at in life. You’re just looking to make a little more extra income to supplement what you’re already doing. For whatever purpose. Extra money for vocation, pay your school fee, put your child in better child care – whatever it is.

Then there’s group 2. You are not happy where you’re at in life. You are desperately want to get out. You are looking for something that you can start outside the thing you hate doing and build real income with to a point where you can match your current income so that you can walk away from that thing you hate doing into doing something else full-time.

The good news is, no matter which groups you’re in, if you qualify, you will be coach and mentored on how to get started and build your business asset at your own pace so that no matter which group you’re in, you can accomplish your goal with as little as investing an hr or 2 a day into your business.

And the coaching and mentorship program are design to teach you all the real world business skills you need to build a successful business asset.
