Going Through Tough Times? Change Your Work From Home Philosophy!

Change Your Work From Home Philosophy!

Let’s start out by getting the meaning of philosophy down.

Philosophy– The study of general and fundamental problems, such as those connected with reality, existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language.

So with that said I’m sure we have all have had some tough times in our lives Right?

With the way the economy is it hard not to.

Perhaps you recently lost your job or your hours were cut back.

Or maybe you’re just not sure anything good in life can happen to you.

Well I want you to know that you’re not alone and something good can come from the tough spot you’re in right now.

Just Curious, Have you ever tried to work from home?

Now let me ask you this do you know where the saying let the cat of the bag originated from?

I bet you’re wondering at this point what does this have to do with me going through tough times or changing my work from home philosophy Chery?

Well I am going to get to that HEHE

I have always just assumed this saying to be more about letting out a secret of some kind!

If You Are Going Through Tough Times! Change Your Philosophy!

I heard this story on the radio a while back and I just had to share it here today with you.

The DJ was talking about pig farmers during the middle ages who would take their pigs to market to sell them.

They also took some cats along with them.

Now these pig farmers did not get whole lot of money for their bag of pigs, so to make the bags heavier they would slip in a cat or two into their sacks.

The livestock was sold alive so could you imagine how noisy this could become.

Now when the customer would hear a Meow instead of an Oink he would open the bag AND Yes let the cat out of the bag.

And this is how the saying originated. Hell of a way to work from home HUH?

Are You Going Through Tough Times?

Well I am hoping if you are going through tough times that you are not pressured into taking such drastic steps to work from home.

I do know that unemployment is a huge problem in today’s economy and that finding a job in your field can be virtually impossible.

You may not even know where to turn, but I am going to let you know that there is hope.

If you truly want to work from home, the first thing I want to share with you is to get yourself out of that broken mindset.

Going Through Tough Times Change Your Work From Home Philosophy 

Life can sometimes be tough, but if you just keep the faith and never give up on your dreams you can work from home and find success.

You have to decide to take responsibility for your own life and then create the change that is needed to reach your goals.

Start focusing on what it is that you truly want, then start focusing on all of the positives and forget about all of the negative things that are going on in your life.

You will be amazed when you change your mindset the changes the that will take place.

If You Are Going Through Tough Times!

Start using positive self talk to get you through your tough times.

Go ahead and make a list, it can be anything you want.

Here are a few affirmations I use on a daily basis.

• I am ready to face the day and grateful for all that I have

Now go ahead and make a list of some powerful messages you can tell yourself to get yourself through tough times and make it possible for you to work from home as well.

You don’t necessarily have to believe these at first but if you keep doing this everyday you will dig these statements into your mind where they will take root and grow.

I totally believe that what you think about you bring about…

    First I want to say that I love your images. The cat in the bag is adorable and you inside a heart….

    Thanks for another wonderful reminder to improve my attitude. I just had a difficult situation and have been feeling off-center. Many successful people create an index card that they carry with them or a poster in their office with a list of what they truly want – their why – and their positive uplifting statements. It is time for me to create that to keep me focused on my goals and remaining in a positive state as I deal with issues and roadblocks (such as malware on the web sites and a web site transfers that were completed on April 1 but I only got the message yesterday, after calling the host almost every day.

      Hello Dr Erica, The cat is my sons cat Skitso, he just loves bags LOL And as for me in the heart well I have really been experimenting with images lately as well as my branding so there you have it! LOL

      Now lets talk about those challenges of yours, we all have them my friend and how we think and deal with them is the important thing here. I did take some time off a while back here and really took a look at myself and I was not to happy with what I saw.

      So I started working on ME! And with this came my journal, and Yes my affirmations everywhere.. I use them daily and they truly have h=made a huge impact on my attitude and confidence as well.

      Do this my friend, it will help keep you focused on what is important to you.. Do keep me posted OK! Thank You for sharing your story with us.. Chery :))

    Hey Chery,

    I know if someone has lost their job and they are frantic with having to make some type of decision of what to do, they need to put their trust into someone who won’t steer them wrong. You my friend are that person and I hope that they’ll at least give you a call, email you or connect with you in some way and have that discussion.

    We all know that keeping a positive attitude about things can be difficult if you have no money to pay your next bill. It’s not the end of the world though, I think at some point we’ve all been there which is why we can relate. But there is a way out and you with your positive affirmations and your upbeat attitude, well they definitely need to be connecting with you girl.

    Love your message and man does that look cold from your video. LOL!!!

    Have a great week.

    Mindset is huge. People who choose to be positive and want to learn, change, and grow, are always open to success. If you’re negative already, it’s gonna take a huge change in mindset.

      Good Morning Time Nile! I do agree my friend, I say it in my pictute right? MINDSET IS HUGE! Thanks for adding to the conversation here today, I do appreciate it, Always so nice to see you here.. Chery :))

    Hi Chery,

    It’s been a long time since I was in the workforce as a W2 employee. With that said, it’s a challenge in the small business world as well. Roughly 80% of all businesses will fail within five years and of those 70% will fail in the first 24 months or less.

    Mindset is EVERYTHING! So is proper planning and laying the foundation for success. To many are just jumping in without clarity and attempting to make it where they way to go without the structure or plan to get there.

    Get clarity, and then start focusing on strategies and goals and watch the execution start falling into place.

    Love this post Chery!

    Have a great week.

    Chery i really enjoyed the article but when i watched the video it was a boost of motivation. Glad to hear that everything is working well for you and able to produce incomes online :)

      Hello Kyle! Love Love Love This! I actually wasn’t going to add the video now I am happy I did :) Thanks for sharing my friend, so nice to see you here again,.. Chery :))

    Hi Chery

    Very very motivational post indeed

    The way you explained all the points is pretty awesome. I just tried to say loudly about myself and amazed to know I have that much qualities which I knew but didn’t have them in proper order. So one must talk to himself to get back to face the odds with the power of victory.

    I am much impressed to see you every time come up with a brilliant idea and this time going through tough time by changing the work at home philosophy is really wonderful.

    Thanks a lot for sharing such a nice post.

    Very motivating and inspiring article Chery! We all can get through tough times.

    Life is a challenge itself. Life is about surviving just like our blogging life.

    Positive frame of mind can change things positively. Listing down some powerful messages you can tell yourself will improve things.

    I like it when you say.. “You will dig these statements into your mind where they will take root and grow.” very inspiring.

    Your positive attitude truly shines through Chery!

    And once again is a glowing testament, of what can happen to and for us long term, once we internalize the right mental pictures and keep moving forward!

    Clearly, losing your main source of income and having to figure out a way to replace it, couldn’t have been easy!

    But the fact that you stay focused on accomplishing your long term plan and dream of financial freedom, even as you were dealing such a difficult financial challenge!

    Speaks volumes to awesome long term power of your overall message! Thanks so much foe being a true leader and great example of what’s possible! With the right attitude and mindset!

Chery :))

  10. says

    Hi Chery,

    Going through tough times isn’t easy. But it all starts in the mindset. I love your affirmations and am a strong believer when it comes to doing them. It is how I got through some tough times in my life.

    I also believe in the law of attraction, so keeping a positive mind, no matter how difficult it is to do, will work out somehow. It doesn’t happen immediately, but with a little work and self talk, we can switch the script in our minds.

    I love that video you made with snow all around you. I am grateful that the snow has finally melted here lol.

    Be well my friend,


    • says

      Hello Donna, I do agree it is very important to work on your mindset, OMG there is just SOOOOOOOO Many negatives in this world, it is a MUST if you are to succeed in life! I love how you mentioned the LOA as well this is also a huge factor! Thank you so much for sharing and for your kind words about my video, OH and out snow is almost all gone, now to see if it is done for the season.. LOL

    Hi Chery,
    Another powerful piece that is intended to cheer us up! I am sure it has achieved its objective. Its philosophical mingled with self belief and positive awareness.

    Work from Home enthusiasts are going to be encouraged with this piece even as those desiring to start earning from home would have many takeaways from this write-up!

    Yes, I agree with you, “what you can think about, you can bring about”. There is no truer fact than that!
    The above comment was shared in kingged.com as well

    Hey Chery,

    The mind is a powerful mechanism in and of itself. One thing I know if you curtail your mind towards success or anything, you will bring it about. It doesn’t matter what it is!

    In this case, you want to maintain a mindset that’s going to help you reach the goals that will push you to success within your home business. Yes sometimes life gets the best of us, but I do believe that it’s those things that get us geared towards handling those trying situations that will eventually keep us balanced, focused, wiser, and pressing on.

    One of the actions which you mentioned is that we can do are affirmations, although doing afformations works best for me. When we get our subconscious mind accustomed to these positive statements and questions, then we are preparing and maintain our minds for the opportunities we can leverage to accomplish our goals!

    Thanks for sharing Chery! Have a good one!

    I found your post on kingged.com under the category of Make Money Online

      Hello Sherman, What a well thought out comment, I to have used Noah St. John’s idea of afformations and think that asking questions is a very powerful way to help change your “”Work From Home Philosophy!””

      Thank you for sharing, Loved It! Chery :))

    Hi Chery,

    I just love visiting your blog! I always know it’s going to be motivational and positive.

    When I have a tough time, I pray. Then I find my strength again. I tell myself – to be happy is to make someone else happy.

    Thanks for sharing,

  14. says

    Hi Chery,
    Absolutely love your attitude, girl you are awesome!
    Mindset is huge, you can control a lot of tings if you have the right mindset :)
    Thank you,
    Have a beautiful day!

  15. says

    congratulations on your success! You are doing absolutely fabulous darling! We will all face tough times..I am sure you have too.. it’s how we deal with them and move on…onwards and upwards never letting someone get us down. Keep being you Chery :-)

  16. says

    Thank you for an encouraging post. When one has just lost a job, usually there is panic , more like the world has come to an end as there seems to be no means of livelihood without that “job”. As you say mindset is huge, it would be the beginning of great opportunities as long as one has the right mindset.

  17. says

    Never give up on your DREAMS. You can do it. No one is the same, we all can achieve
    if we are willing to give it our all. Some may take longer than others, just change the
    method not the goal.

    Good mindset there Chery! Go for it girl.

    Chery, Your post, video and affirmations are truly inspirational! We all have to face challenges and disappointments in our lives but it’s how you handle them that will make the difference between success and failure.
