Flash-back to 2009: I still have a day job. I am like Clark Kent. I slog away at my job – a highly paid one – during the day. Feels like my cubicle is made of Kryptonite – saps me of my life energy. I take the New York city subway to get to Grand Central station. Then a Metro train to get home each night.
The further away I get from work, the stronger I seem to get – must be the effects of the Kryptonic Cubicle wearing off. I give my father-in-law a huge hug and a kiss on his cheeks. My children run into my arms, and my flabby belly starts tightening into a 6-pack. They eat and get ready for bed, and I can feel my tshirt splitting at the seams. By the time my beloved gets home and we have a long chat about the day, I watch her eat a piece of cookie for dessert, and catch the last few minutes of a Cavs game, I am totally shredded!
By the time I walk down the stairs at 10 PM to my basement office, my mind is whirring like Clark Kent in a constricted telephone booth. By the time I reach the bottom of the stairs, I am Superman. I am finally Invincible. Untouchable, Unbeatable, Undeniable. I am the King of the World!
As the clock hit 1 AM, I suddenly hear the voice of my mother calling me back inside the house. She’s telling me to stop playing cricket with my friends, to come back in and do my homework. “Right now”, she says! My mother’s voice snaps me out of a euphoric few hours of working on my side business. It’s a membership plugin for WordPress called DAP. Not many know about it yet.
Oh, how I hated having to stop playing cricket, only to go inside to do my homework! I feel the same way at the thought of having to stop working on my site, on my blog, my newsletter, on my PHP code – only to go to bed so that I can get just enough sleep to get through another day at my job. Ughh!
If you can imagine how that felt, then congratulations! You are an incurable entrepreneur. This is what it feels like when you’ve found your true calling. Your passion. Your purpose.
You feel like you’re Superman. Or Wonder Woman. Which is coming out shortly, by the way.
It’s 2009. I am Superman. Every single day. 7 PM – 7 AM.
It is now 2017. And I’m better than Superman.
I am DAPperman.
You know… because of DAP… aka DigitalAccessPass.com.
Superman. Wonder Woman. You can be whatever it is that you want to be. Just don’t let YOU hold you back.
