Working from home can be a rewarding experience, but why should you consider making the switch? Sure, you have a job. But how much do you really get out of it?Think about it: Long hours. Your boss breathing down your neck. That coworker you just can’t stand.And then there’s the pay. It limits all your financial decisions. “No, I can’t afford it now–no to the Cadillac Escalade I want, no to my brow lift, no to my daughter’s braces.” In short, “No, no, no!”Plus, there’s no guarantee that you’ll always have this blessed job either. So why don’t you look for something better?”Well, it pays the bills.”In other words it’s safe, safe because it’s familiar, but that’s no guarantee that it will be there for you tomorrow. Nothing in life is secure. Change is inevitable, and change is uncertain.”What if I loose everything I now have?” You ask. “I can’t deal with failure. I just can’t.”So you don’t.But what happens when you DO loose your job? Where will you turn? You’ll have no other source of income, and that is risky.What you should do for a minute now is to step outside your emotions. Look at your situation objectively–as if you were analyzing your best friend’s situation and advising him.You’d probably start telling yourself things like, “How do you know if there’s something better out there if you don’t look?” “There’s no guarantee that your job will be there tomorrow.” Or “Your cousin Kathryn started a home business three months ago. Why don’t you ask her about it?” You would encourage investigation rather than dismiss it.Remember that not all of the voices in your head are good, but neither are all of them bad. It’s learning to tell the difference. Separating yourself from your feelings will help you do that.Go ahead. Give yourself permission to look into home business opportunities. And who knows? You may just find something better.
