The Good Life

11 Comments

It’s a warm and sunny Monday morning in May….

 

You awaken from a deep sleep, it’s about 6am, and you have a smile on your face. You slept great… better than you have in a long time… and after a few minutes of laying there listening to the birds chirping and watching tiny specks of dust float through the tiny light beams peeking through the shutters, it hits you…

 

The adrenaline.

 

Friday was the last day at your job of 15 years and today is the first day of the rest of your life. You have been earning an additional $5000 a month for the last three months or so, from home, part-time, after hours…

 

You convinced your spouse that you have what it takes to make the plunge and quit. You gave your notice and now you are done.

 

Instead of forcing yourself out of bed and dragging yourself to the shower, like you did for years and years… you spring out of bed and leap down the stairs.

 

You log into your virtual business to see what’s going on….

 

By 6:15 you are sipping on a cup of Joe and checking your emails. You have a few appointments that your assistant has scheduled for you and you notice that you have $800 in commissions that came in over night, while you slept. Then it hits you…

 

You smile to yourself.

 

You silently clench your fists, close your eyes, and let out a sigh… you say thank you. Thank you thank you thank you.

 

You get up, walk to the bathroom. You wash your face, and as the water is dripping off of your face, you look up in the mirror, and staring back at you is the person you always knew you could be.

 

You pound your fist on the counter top and say in a quiet yet victorious voice: “You did it….You did it! I knew you could. I knew it. I knew it!”

 

You catch a smile in the mirror out of the corner of your eye as you turn out the lights and head to the kitchen to refill your coffee.

 

Suddenly you hear a door open and your two sleep-eyed kids come wandering into the kitchen… “What’s for breakfast?” asks your son…

 

What do you WANT for breakfast, buddy..?

 

Frosted Flakes!

 

Alright, Frosted Flakes it is!

 

Out comes the milk, the bowls, and the Frosted Flakes. Before long the sugar has kicked in, and the kids are off playing… you clean up breakfast and take a cup of coffee upstairs to your other half who is just getting up.

 

You have to get to work… “yeah right!” is the reply… I know what you do all day. You just sit behind your computer and poke around online–that’s not work!

 

You laugh and agree… you say, you’re right it’s not work… it’s too much fun to be work… but I got kids to feed and we all know we can’t live on cheerios… gotta go bring home the bacon!

 

You are shaking like a two year old filly in the starting gate… you take a 3-minute shower that barely gets you wet and you throw on some jeans, sneakers, and a tee shirt.

 

You are on top of the world. You are invincible. You are free. You are flying. And you are flying high. You are high on life for the first time in years. The trek into work, the BS, the politics, the endless meetings, the chit chat, the small minded people complaining about their lives. All of that is behind you and you have joined the ranks of the few. The proud. Those who write their own ticket.

 

The 3% who dream… You have escaped the indentured servitude of the 97%ers and have crossed over to the other side. There is no feeling like it, and there is no going back. You are all chips in. Fully committed. Free at last.

 

The scene I just described is not only my typical Monday morning… and the life I get to enjoy, but also that of countless members of the PRO U family.

 

It could be the life waiting for you, too.

 

There is only one way to find out.

 

And that is to have the courage to take the next step.

 

It’s your call… you can spend the next three years trying to figure it out… continue to struggle, and potentially fail, or you could plug into PRO and WAKE UP the inner entrepreneur that you KNOW is inside of you.

 

Let’s go folks. Its time to WAKE UP and live the good life.

 

  • I found your story very motivational and one I can aspire to and relate to…other than the part about frosted flakes for b-fast. I’m a Juice Plus+ rep so at my house we have oatmeal, fruit or a healthy “Complete” smoothie! Thanks for the help visualizing!

    Jay,
    I can not take the next step. I am afraid. I am 55 years old, and afraid to take the next step. Why? The reason is simple! I feel that I am not educated enough to continue, and I am afraid because of the lack of education, that I will fail, and I will have spent time, and money foolishly, again, and again. I am tired of wasting time, and building up credit card debt. So what someone will answer my questions when I need help. So what someone will instruct me on what to do next, and you must do this, and you must do that, So What! I figure by the time it takes me to understand this,and actually make money from it I will be in my death bed, or close to it, I do not have the positive response anymore. I am surrounded by so much negativity that its amazing I make it through the day. The only fortunate thing I have left is the fact that I do not have “Television” in my home, and I read very little Newspapers, and little radio, if any at all. But I love the Internet,and the marketing aspects I see each day. And I envy each and everyone of the marketer’s today that have the one thing I have been trying to endure for the last 6 years of my life to accomplish. The one thing I can dream I had, and wish it was to be apart of my life today. The one thing I am glad for everyone to have, and that is TIME. I think most people do not realize that Time is so precious, time is the one entity that we all should cherish, from day one of when we realize that, hey! I really need time to understand what life is all about, and then go and respect it. I wish I had the TIME to be FREE, but I’am just too late to continue. People need to realize that word, and realization is required, you can not hide from it, it’s always there, and it will never leave you until your gone. I want to to be free, but I just do not have the time, do you? If I only had the TIME!!!!!

  • Wow:

    I think my eyes were closed while I was reading and I could see it all unfold. I have had this dream a million times, I have to make it happen.

    Jay, Great add, however trust is hard to get. There are so many work from home make loads of money crap out there its really hard to put your trust in a business like this. Don’t get me wrong if its possible and managable I’m interested. Just dont want to make you rich with my hard earned money. Let ma know.

    Thanks,
    Chris Landis

  • The world has moved on and starting a home based biz is the right thing to do. Internet is here to stay. It may take time for me get the results I am looking for but one thing I know is it will happen. There is money to be made on the internet..people are making real income. I will stick it out. I will not give up.

  • Jay, what a way to make the dream come alive. People have no idea how powerful word pictures truly are. Reading this post renewed my conviction to be financially free in this industry in 2011!

  • You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation but I find this
    matter to be actually one thing that I feel I might by no
    means understand. It seems too complicated and extremely vast for me.
    I am having a look ahead in your next post, I’ll try
    to get the cling of it!

  • This piece of writing is really a pleasant one it assists new web
    users, who are wishing in favor of blogging.
