Ano nga ba ang dapat mong gawin to get out of this rat race?
The marketplace will dictate how much you are worth.
Meaning, the combination of your skills, knowledge, education, talents, and experience is only worth kung magkano ang sa tingin ng society or market place ang halaga nito. They have the last say if you should make P500,000 per month, P75,000 per month, or P25,000.
That’s why there are people that are working so hard but making too little.
Meron naman, they’re not working as hard and yet they make multiple times more than the average people. Fortunately, I’m one of those guys.
I admit. Sometimes I feel guilty for working less hours a day kasi we’re taught to work extremely hard.
But the idea of "working hard" is partly wrong. I said "partly" because you can be working hard on things that doesn’t matter that much. Let me explain further.
In sports, kung basketball, there are specific muscles you need to strengthen to have explosiveness, strength, and speed. Since it’s a physical game, you’ll need bigger muscles.
Pero kung marathon, you can’t be too muscular like a basketball player kasi bibigat ka. Kaya mapapansin mo, marathoners are skinny.
My point is, you need to know how to play the game. In making money, it’s the same thing. You have to know what the market wants that they’re willing to pay you for it. If you’re still in the planning stage of business to launch, ask yourself...
- What kind of product or service do people want?
- What skills or knowledge I need to acquire so I can be more valuable?
- What successful businesses that I can model?
- How can I improve an existing product or services in the market place so I can charge more money for it?
Simply go to online discussion groups and you’ll see people talking about what they want, they hate, they desire, etc.
Before the Internet, it will be extremely difficult and expensive to access this kind of information. You’ll need to hire a market research firm to find this information.
But now, all you need to do is visit these websites, read, and take notes.
This is how I launched successful online products again and again. I don’t make a guess. I let the public tell me what they want. I then create it and offer it to them. That’s why I was able to sold Millions of Pesos online.
Remember, it is the market place or society that will dictate how valuable your skills are. But the good news is, you can develop yourself and your business to be extremely valuable.
