Pillar #1 : Dreams, Purpose, Mindset & Discipline – The 7 Pillars of a Successful Online Jobs Career Series

In my journey as an Online Filipino professional, I have come to realize that there are certain things that a person who wants to fully maximize and succeed in their online career must have. Allow me to share these to you in this blog post series called “The 7 Pillars of a Successful Online Jobs Career”.

PILLAR #1: Dreams, Purpose, Mindset & Discipline

mindsetThese 4 elements may sound unrelated to each other, but believe me, as a group, they are considered as one of the most important pillar of a successful online jobs career. Why? This will be your basis and source of determination and perseverance when times get tough, especially if you are just starting out. When I was just starting out in this industry, after I left my call center career, I have only one dream then, that is to get all my credit card debts paid. So by all means, whenever I feel like not working or I encounter disappointments along the way, I constantly remind myself why I am doing what I am doing, my dream, and guess what, they indeed get me going.

Lets further talk about this mindset through a story of a VA friend of mine. This friend constantly complains about his work, client, schedule, pay, etc. Basically, he does not appreciate his online career. The more we talk, the more I see the mindset he has. He has an employee mindset. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that having an employee mindset is wrong, but if you have this type of mindset when your current work requires a different one, then that’s the time you experience resentment, dissatisfaction and unhappiness towards your work.

Now, allow me to share with you the kind of mindset you should possess for a successful online career. You must have an Entrepreneur Mindset. Because the reality is, you are someone who provides and offers services that your clients avail. For that reason, you don’t call your client, a ‘boss’, but rather a ‘client’. Sometimes, you may feel that you are an employee due to the nature of your work, but know that you are a business owner and you are selling your skills and services.

Going back to the story of my friend earlier, when I discussed with him about his mindset and asked him to try to change it by reminding himself that he is a business owner rather than an employee, things started to look brighter for him. The situation is the same but what changed is the way he views his work. So, if you wish to pursue this career, don’t forget that you are a business owner and not an employee.

disciplineLastly, and a very important characteristic that could make or break your online jobs career, is no other than Discipline. No matter how good you are, how wonderful your dreams are and having the right mindset, if you don’t know how to control yourself and do the things that must be done and when it should be done, you are bound to fail. One good example that many online professionals are guilty about, including me, is the attitude of putting work aside for sometime in exchange of some non-work related tasks. Let say your favorite TV show is on its last episode. Some might say, “I will just do this later, anyway its not yet the deadline.” This is a clear indicator that you don’t have the discipline. I hope you are getting what I am talking about.

So there you have it, the first pillar that you should have for a successful online jobs career. Is this something that you already have? If so, then you are still in the running towards a successful online jobs career. On our Next blog post, we will talk about the 2nd Pillar, which is about “Knowledge & Skills to Offer”.
