Giving Thanks for Online Opportunities?
© 2002 by Liz Hekimian-Williams
Have you noticed that during the holidays a lot of us start reflecting about our lives more? We think about the meaning of life, our hopes and dreams, things we regret, and things we're thankful for. I've actually caught myself recently feeling thankful about my computer and all the opportunities being online has brought into my life personally and in business. Have you?
I have to admit it. Even though I've been online for years, I am still impressed daily by the expansiveness of the internet. There are millions, or is it billions, of websites, information, entertainment, financial opportunities, and such resources and opportunities that are available to us online! If you're anything like me, then you get just as excited as I do when you receive a good friend's email, a great business lead, a shopping bargain, find an interesting ezine to subscribe to or discover an intriguing website you haven't seen before.
This reminds me of a TV commercial I saw once where the fellow that was surfing online had a warning message come up on his computer screen and it said something like "You've now reached the end of the Internet". He was using a high speed internet connection that helped him speed through the entire internet until supposedly he actually reached the end! He looked incredulously at the message. Wouldn't you?
Wouldn't it distress you if you ever had that message pop up on your computer screen? That was it? No more new stuff? What do you mean I've reached the end of the internet?! No way, no how!
Fortunately, we have an endless resource at our fingertips, full of opportunites for personal and business enrichment. And there's no end in sight.
Think about it. Isn't chatting instantly online, or sending and receiving email messages nearly instantly so amazing? The online opportunities for strengthening and expanding personal and business relationships are incredibly vast, and they have become an important part of our lives.
And business and financial opportunities are everywhere! You can hardly check your email or go website viewing without getting some pitch about a business opportunity. Sometimes these are unwelcome, or a scam. Sometimes it's quite the opposite and good opportunities arise.
There are some truly legitimate and worthwhile resources and opportunites for folks who wish to establish an online small business of their own. There are ways to make extra money online, perhaps even a great deal of money and reach towards financial independence. Starting an online business is not easy, but if you use the right resources, learn the ropes, and persistently develop your business, it can be fun and lucrative.
Yes, these are interesting and exciting times online. There's always something new to discover, someone new to connect with, and new opportunities with every click. So, this holiday season, along with giving thanks for all of your offline blessings and opportunities, also remember to give thanks for your online ones.
