I get messages everyday asking for advice on how to work online. Where to start. Excuses as to why they think they can’t do it… Lately I’ve been replying with the same answer….
I think a lot of people forget to keep learning new things once they have finished up at school or university. It’s kind of like the mentality that you’ve done your time in an education institution and now its time to let the brain have a break.
Sometimes it’s nice to binge watch shit on Netflix.
I do it haha.
But then if you’re not learning. You’re no longer growing. You’re no longer flexing your brain.
You begin to limit yourself with what you can do because YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO DO ANYTHING ELSE.
I get messages everyday from people asking me what’s the first step to living a life of full-time travel or of how to work online.
I tell them what I do (online marketing, freelance stuff etc), and the reply is usually that they don’t know how to do that… Meaning they can never do that… Meaning a life like this just isn’t in their reach.
So here’s my single piece of advice:
EVERYTHING IS LEARNABLE.
Every single damn thing in this world is learnable.
I studied accounting at university, not writing and I knew absolutely nothing about online marketing.
But I learned it myself.
I went to live events and learned from the best.
I bought trainings and watched countless Youtube tutorials.
I’m not a techie person, but I learned how to make a website and understand basic coding…. Even though that shit does my head in!
To me, if there are skills you can LEARN which down the track will enable you to live the life you truly desire… Then it shouldn’t even be a question of whether or not you take the time to learn it.
If you’re not taking the time to learn it, then your desire isn’t strong enough. Find a stronger one.
The point is, everything is learnable.
Think back to what you have learned throughout the years….
How to use technology
Then add in something that you need to learn to help reach your goals/dreams. It’s probably not that much harder than the list above…. I mean math is pretty damn hard.
Everything is learnable.
Please please remember that.
Because as soon as you get that… I mean really get that… Nothing seems impossible anymore.
If you’re serious about wanting to work online… Either while traveling the world or from your home, then feel free to download a PDF I made of 23 Ways/Ideas for working online.
I recommend to choose ONE method and LEARN EVERYTHING you can about it. Then implement it.
Learning and Implementing go hand in hand- you shouldn’t have one without the other 😉
All the best on your journey!
