Unemployment is a terrible situation to be facing. Afterall, the thought alone of not having sufficient funds to survive is a daunting reality the unemployed face. The demoralizing position isn’t for fear struck souls, and instead is a reality some people could endure during their lifespan.
There is hope and when the right frame of mind is developed (mindset), it helps find solutions to the dilemma. Often starting up a small business is the way to go. In fact, attitude determines commitment to go after a realistic objective. When there is a will, there is a way. So first imagine a scenario of destitution and then weigh up the odds to find the best option that can be enacted upon quickly to create the momentum and propel into a realized state.
Everything is what you put into it, so think big and embrace something practical that people need done. There is room for serious people. Here are a few options that can be done spontaneously to provide potential profitability:
Visiting Raleigh in North Carolina, USA in 1985 meant earning my keep. On arrival I called on a building site. The foreman asked me if I could paint, so I said yes. I mean how difficult can it be to put paint on a brush and make up and down strokes to paint window and door frames? He gave me the job. When there’s a will, there a way!
A month later I wanted to venture out and make my own way forward, so I purchased a 4L Pontiac car, and left. Keeping within the city limits of Raleigh which at that time was developing and affluent I found myself knocking on doors of houses with gardens, offering to clean up and put their gardens in order. Again, I had no experience, but a good attitude to get things done.
A month later and I found myself with itchy feet. I got back into my car and drove off into a neighboring part of the city and found another new building site. This time around another foreman called Mark needed an election. He asked me if I understood how to be an electrician and I confirmed what he wanted to hear.
The point here is believing in yourself is half the battle. Having the right mindset and taking action will set you up for life. Good communication to convince an employer helps!
Have a terrific day!
