The armchair philosopher in me comes out at this time of year.
Remembrance Sunday was observed across the UK.
I don’t come from a background with a strong military tradition…
But my great grandfather went to France to fight in World War I.
I don’t know much about him. He died years before I was born and my father has only talked about him fleetingly…
Usually accompanied by a tale of epic drinking proportions.
It was in France, you see, where my great grandfather got a taste for pints of white wine.
And so, when the war was over, he returned to the mining village in South Wales and back down the pit he went.
But arguably, he was never the same.
As my father said: “Who knows what he saw out there”.
Health problems took their toll and from the very brief details I know, I suspect what we now refer to as PTSD may have contributed to his demise.
In trying to “make it” online it’s easy to talk casually about the “sacrifices” we make:
A cancelled vacation here…
A sleepless night there.
However, it pales into insignificance compared to what those fallen young men and women sacrificed for their families and for their futures.
I’m grateful my only fight is that to stay out of a 9-5 job…
And make enough money so I can live comfortably.
I’m grateful that my only worry every month is what I should spend my excess cash on to make life that little bit more pleasurable.
And I’m grateful these are the only problems I have.
Given the choice, wouldn’t you rather show up for a battle you know you can win?
Wouldn’t you rather just push a button in some military stronghold and make all your problems go away…
Rather than take your chances in the mud and blood of the trenches?

P.S. Making money online doesn’t have to be a bloody war when you know what you are doing…
And as an Inner Circle coaching client, you certainly will:
