This gentleman is amazing. We all can get down in the dumps periodically due to something that didn’t work right for us. But Jon Morrow, Associate Editor of Copyblogger wouldn’t have any of that. Jon wrote a blog that will just blow you away titled…..How to Quit Your Job, Move to Paradise and Get Paid to Change the World. To me this is not about Quitting a Job…it is about thinking positively in your life…this positive attitude will yield unbelievable results to you in your career and personal life.
Basically, here is a man who ran into some physical issues from an accident and became dependent on the US Government for survival. He took initiative and developed a positive thinking approach and created a new career….He didn’t stop to grovel or just accept his predicament. He took on a passion of blogging. It could be any vocation. But he drove it forward with passion. His first focus was to help people….not strictly to make $.
This blog entry from Jon is well worth the time investment. No matter where you are in your career and life, from unemployed and alone to self-employed with a large loving family nearby, you can do it. Just think positive, make a plan, establish goals, take action.
