Re-inventing your talents to earn money online and how to start a new career path!

Updated on August 14, 2012

Finding the High when you're at your lowest

We've always been told we're in charge of our own destiny but are we really?, in recent years, many well established career men and women have lost their jobs, they obviously are not in charge of their own destinies, but the big corporate bosses are.

Finding yourself out of a job when all you've know is what you've been doing all these years can have a tremendous affect on your overall behavior including physical and mental issues that can make or break where you head from here. Empower yourself with the belief of "I am in charge of my own destiny", reach deep inside and find the one talent that you truly enjoy. Everyone is good at something, whether it's making jelly and jam, baking bread, building websites or fixing cars. In order to truly become in charge of our own destiny, it would mean we are the decision makers of the outcomes, as a decision maker, it's simple, you are the boss.

Once you find your talent, set short term goals that are easily achieved, this will help you feel the enjoyment of immediate success and automatically trigger an emotional excitement to move forward and set long term goals.

Sit and think of the various ways you can monetize the talent you so much enjoy. For me, I enjoyed writing for as far as I could remember, it's not surprise that I am now involved in website building, SEO strategies and writing for a living. The best part is, I can do it from anywhere, I can do it anytime and I can earn money that I've actually enjoyed earning.

I was blessed with triplets at home and I thought I will be loosing my job, my husband is a well established Orange County dentist and I really didn't need to work but the habbit of earning money my whole life was hard to break. I decided to put my talents to the test by starting to write a few articles on Hubpages, the hope was to earn money online and spend more time with my children. I began by writing a few hubs on subjects that matter to me and found that there's someone, somewhere that enjoyed those subjects as much as I did. The online communities are a friendly bunch of people that are willing to help along the way, all you have to do is ask. I have opened all the accounts necessary and started to earn cash online.

Let's face it, it's not enough to replace a full time salary, but I've never been more excited than earning the first quarter on Hubpages, it's because I did it using a talent I enjoyed, writing. My short term goal was achieved. Now, I wanted to take it to the next level, I found writing on hubpages to be my home but I wanted to spread my wings a little, I signed up for my own site where I also publish articles and monetize the advertisements directly.

I have met a few people online in need of content writing services and began writing for them, and this allows me to earn money from online advertisements and directly from the customer for content I'm writing. Oh wait, we're linking to Ebay right?, I began frequenting the Orange County Estate Sales and purchasing items to re-sell on Ebay, I write an article, earn money from advertisements, send traffic for people to purchase my items on Ebay and earn some more, not to mention my own affiliation with Ebay.

I am not saying, it's easy and I am not saying it will happen overnight, but I think everyone has the drive and everyone has the talent within to re-invent themselves in some way shape or form.

It's important to be proud of who you are, to have the ability to say "I am in charge of my own destiny and I will make this happen", for me it was writing online, for you it might be something else. Just realize, you are just as important as anyone else, you have something very important to share, and someone out there is waiting for you to share it. Now, the collective income I am earning combined is double the salary I am earning from my job and if I do loose my employement, I am well prepared.

Go ahead and Re-Invent the talents you so much enjoy into money making talents and start earning income online or in the general public.
