Giving Thanks for Online Opportunities?

? 2002 by Liz Hekimian-Williams

Have you noticed that during the holidays a lot of us start
reflecting about our lives more? We think about the meaning of
life, our hopes and dreams, things we regret, and things we're
thankful for. I've actually caught myself recently feeling thankful
about my computer and all the opportunities being online has
brought into my life personally and in business. Have you?

I have to admit it. Even though I've been online for years, I am
still impressed daily by the expansiveness of the internet. There
are millions, or is it billions, of websites, information,
entertainment, financial opportunities, and such resources and
opportunities that are available to us online! If you're anything
like me, then you get just as excited as I do when you receive a
good friend's email, a great business lead, a shopping bargain, find
an interesting ezine to subscribe to or discover an intriguing
website you haven't seen before.

This reminds me of a TV commercial I saw once where the
fellow that was surfing online had a warning message come up
on his computer screen and it said something like "You've now
reached the end of the Internet".

He was using a high speed
internet connection that helped him speed through the entire
internet until supposedly he actually reached the end! He looked
incredulously at the message. Wouldn't you?

Wouldn't it distress you if you ever had that message pop up on
your computer screen? That was it? No more new stuff?
What do you mean I've reached the end of the internet?!
No way, no how!

Fortunately, we have an endless resource at our fingertips,
full of opportunites for personal and business enrichment. And
there's no end in sight.

Think about it. Isn't chatting instantly online, or sending and
receiving email messages nearly instantly so amazing? The online
opportunities for strengthening and expanding personal and
business relationships are incredibly vast, and they have become
an important part of our lives.

And business and financial opportunities are everywhere! You
can hardly check your email or go website viewing without
getting some pitch about a business opportunity. Sometimes
these are unwelcome, or a scam. Sometimes it's quite the opposite
and good opportunities arise.

There are some truly legitimate and worthwhile resources
and opportunites for folks who wish to establish an online small
business of their own. There are ways to make extra money
online, perhaps even a great deal of money and reach towards
financial independence. Starting an online business is not easy,
but if you use the right resources, learn the ropes, and
persistently develop your business, it can be fun and lucrative.

Yes, these are interesting and exciting times online. There's
always something new to discover, someone new to connect
with, and new opportunities with every click. So, this holiday
season, along with giving thanks for all of your offline blessings
and opportunities, also remember to give thanks for your
online ones.
