How To Have A Good Life
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

What is a good life, really? There might be as many definitions as individuals on that theme. Someone would emphasize good health, someone a special car or a big house, while others would keep up emotions and relations as prerequisites for having a good life. What is true for one man, can be false for another. But despite variations, I think we can agree upon a couple of basic principles that can be seen as a foundation for a good life: a solid personal economy, and time to enjoy the money you are earning. Realizing these two values and how to obtain them, you are well on your way to find the answer on how to have a good life.

When I was young a had a dream of being a weather-man, or more formally, a meteorologist. My main interest and hobby was the unpredictable atmosphere, which I found deeply fascinating. A read books, got me a barometer and was checking the outdoor temperature almost 24/7. Weather was my life, with the inevitable consequence - there was no doubt about my future occupation within the weather business, which of course was my answer then on how to have a good life.

As the years went by I was on the track. Before I took my MBA I worked a few years as an assistant of meteorologist, just to get more practical insight in the subject, learn more and adapt to the daily work of a weather-man. And i liked it, and my head was filled up with useful knowledge from the curiosities of the atmosphere. It was time to realize the next chapter - My business education, which went very well, and I had the foundation for establishing my own weather forecasting business, together with a meteorologist friend - And we both had the common understanding that running our own weather business was our waterproof recipe on how to have a good life.

But unfortunately we were wrong. Well, we could swim around in challenging weather forecasting all day long, but what we already at an early stage had to face was a tough price competition, and that delivering forecast graphics was a rather time consuming exercise. The result was discouraging - The job became our life working 12-15 hours a day, we could not remember the meaning of the word leisure, and in addition, the profit was surprising low. After some years the question rose: was this really what we meant by how to have a good life? The answer was an overwhelming NO.

It was time to close down, reorganize and stake out a new direction. And the arrow was pointing to the Internet - I had read stories about people who had been making good money by starting a simple on-line business -. time had come to see if this was something I could copy. But wait a second, I didn't have any idea of how on-line business should work, how and what to do. I needed knowledge, I needed a place to learn all this new stuff and adapt to the mindset of an Internet marketer. A web search guided me gently to a learning center - and I let them take care of and enlighten my head with the knowledge I needed - And many of my fellow students even claimed that this also was lessons on how to have a good life.

To make a long story short - On-line business and Internet marketing is now working very well for me, and it does for anyone who are willing to give it a little time and dedication. When those elements put into it, you will in short time take back the control over your life - You will earn enough money to have plenty of leisure to spend with friends and family, and your feeling of freedom and a life worth living will increase dramatically. This is how to have a good life. Take lesson from my story in which I found myself drowning in work giving very limited income - Instead be smart and take advantage of the opportunities the Internet is serving you.
