“Stay hungry” seems an odd title, but this idea of being “hungry” for something is a real motivator as it can push you to strive more for whatever that need is.
When most people think of hungry, they think of being food hunger..but if you think about that feeling, it is about a deep need that needs to be filled, so in that case you need food.
Today I am writing about that hunger to get out of debtmaybe or earn extra income or have a better relationship with money … do you ever feel those those?
Do you want to have £250.000 in your account or whatever the equivalent in your currency?
That would be amazing right?
I have a vision board, and on that board is that figure £250,000..
Every day I look at that and I say to myself I want to earn £250, 000.
You may ask why do I want that? why would you ?
I have seen a house that I want. It is beautiful!!
It has lots of rooms, large garden, room for cars and visitors and a kitchen to cook for family and friends and somewhere where I can do my washing and a swimming pool.
Maybe if I had money left over I would start a business to help others.
The truth is ,I have seen many houses like this, but can I afford them? -No.
I am on minimum wage, I struggle to keep my head above the water…….
BUT I aim to be resourceful and one way or other I will get the money I need, why because I have passion and drive. I am hungry! I do not want to be poor, I do not want to live in poor housing and worry if buying my kids shoes means I have to go without food myself, but I buy those shoes.
Sometimes that figure seems miles away and a mountain… but I read somewhere…
“I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.” Matthew 17:20
I tell you one way or other I will get what I want because I am hungry. I have a dream, I have vision and I know how good that will feel because I can feel that now as though I have received it -I am hungry! (Law of attraction thinking!)
“What to focus on totally affects your life. Think about it. whatever you focus on you will feel even though it’s not true….Focus equals feelings… feelings equals direction” Tony Robbins
A teacher once told me a story of two men who looked out of a prison cell and one looked up and saw the stars and the other looked down at the mud – same position different perspective.
I am holding strong to a vision I had how me giving to others all I have will see it paid forward back to me several times over because I give unconditionally without conditions and this comes at great risk and cost to myself but I have faith.. it may be little faith.. small faith, faith the size of a mustard seed – but I believe!
I would love for my blogs to earn me money. I would like for all the free advice I give out to earn me money..I would like the part time job I have to give me more money but I am looking after my daughter and frankly I want to enjoy life and working full time would kill me – (but it would bring in extra income!)
Some might say but If I am not prepared to work full time then money will not come as I am lazy.
This is wrong! I have been at work for 24 hours and I still have time to help and support others on line in need of help, and I watch videos that will make me a better person and educate myself which keeps me up when should be sleeping but I strive to be betterhuman being and helping others keeps me alive.
Maybe I want life on my terms and work what I want when I want, and even if I earned enough so I did not have to work, I would still work because that is who I am, in a job I am guessing that is helping others less fortunate than myself.
Let me encourage you to keep dreaming. Change your focus if you need to.. change your story if your story isn’t working for you, because the same story gets dull right!
Achieve those dreams?
Continue to be so fed up of being poor.
God bless you and thanks for reading and following.
PLAY THE LOTTERY? spend lots? want to still play BUT FOR FREE and with BETTER ODDS (probably) No need to spend a penny! GAMBLE FOR FREE!win,
With the cost of the national lottery rising, and more paid for lotteries popping up and of course there are the scratch cards ranging from one pound upwards here in the uk is easy to spend a fortune over the months and years.
“I might win” If like me, you love the idea that you might win and what an amazing feeling that would be, then it is fair to say that also, and odds would suggest that actually you may not win, which of course we know but we ignore because the hope of winning takes over and we take out our money and when we don’t win, we get disappointed. I would love to still play but save my money!
Free Lottery is a game which gives entrants the opportunity to win fantastic prizes every day – and the best thing about it is that it doesn’t cost anything to take part!
Sign up for free and select six numbers from 1 to 75, and then sit back to see if you strike it lucky. The prize for matching all six numbers drawn in the Daily Draw is £500, while it gets even more exciting on Mondays when a Weekly Draw is held. Instead of a four-figure prize for matching all six of the winning numbers drawn, you could win a huge £10,000 prize!
You can enter a Weekly Draw straight away after signing up, but going forward you will have to take part in at least three Daily Draws each week in order to qualify. You can find out more about the game and when entries close for each draw in the How to Play section.
Just like its name suggests, Free Lottery costs absolutely nothing to enter, this is because the prize fund is paid for through advertisers rather than ticket sales. It features two exciting draws that could see you win up to £10,000!
Once you’ve signed up, you’re eligible to enter the next draw by picking six numbers from a choice of 75, or have them randomly generated for you
The Daily Draw takes place every evening at 7.30pm, with entries closing two hours before at 5.30pm. The Weekly Draw is held every Monday, at the earlier time of 2pm – ticket sales close at 12pm so make sure you don’t miss out. Find out more about these free draws: Click Here to enter
MoneySavingExpert’s Coupon Kid, Jordon Cox <<<<<seriously he is the coupon Kid, compiled a list of 10 other free sites: Jordon Cox – you are awesome!
Raffler– £1,000 daily jackpot – 1 in 15,000 chance of winning
You’ll need to sign up and watch two 30 second adverts each day to be entered into the draw (make sure you’re connected to Wi-Fi to avoid extra charges). The money it makes from you watching those adverts goes into the prize fund to give away. If a winner does not log onto the app the next day and claim, there will be a rollover. The minimum jackpot is £1,000 each day and draws are at 7pm daily.
The UK’s biggest free lottery site. You’ll need to sign up with your postcode to be entered into several draws every day, including the main draw which has a prize starting at £300. All draws take place at 12pm and you’ll need to check every day – if a prize isn’t claimed it will roll over (the biggest jackpot has reached £1,250).
IMPORTANT: Free Postcode Lottery is 100% free to play, but there’s a totally separate postcode lottery called The People’s Postcode Lottery that costs money to play – we’re only suggesting you play the free one.
DOB lotto– £50 jackpot – 1 in 4,800 chance of winning
A £50 daily jackpot for your date of birth appearing once registered. The winning date of birth will include the day, month and year and you must match each to win the prize. You’ll need to log in and claim in order to get your prize. Draws are at 12pm daily.
A £10 daily jackpot, with the chance to increase your odds by ‘badgering the button’ and get more entries. If your button is gold when you land on the site, then you have won the jackpot.
Lucky Phone– £10/£20/£1,000 jackpots – 1 in 3,700 chance of winning
A daily draw similar to the Free Postcode lottery but for phone numbers. Prizes range from £10 – £1,000 and you must match all numbers from your phone number in order to win. Draws are at midnight daily and you’ll need to check the site every day to see if you’ve won after you’ve registered.
By checking every day and completing other things on site such as referring and reviewing, you can rack up loyalty points which you can exchange for cash – even if you don’t win. MSE Sarah M has won £65 in total from this lottery, and MSE Ant has won £60.
A daily draw of birth dates, similar to the DOB lotto. The starting jackpot is £10 and increases for each day it is not won. You’ll need to register your birthdate and check the site each day to see if you’ve won. Draws are at 11am daily.
A daily draw of number plates. The starting jackpot is £10 and increases for each day it is not won. You will need to register your number plate and to go on the site each day to check if you’ve won. Draws are at 9pm daily.
Uploading a selfie could pay off. One selfie wins the jackpot each day and for each day you log in, you’ll earn a loyalty bonus which will be added to the prize pot if you win. The minimum prize you can win is £10 but it grows for each day it’s not claimed, and you get extra cash in the pot for referrals and logging in every day. Draws are at 12pm daily and are drawn randomly.
The selfie lottery is owned by an email distribution company, but it has confirmed it won’t pass on any data to third parties. Its parent company looks to have had a dodgy past, but it told us a new team is involved in this and assured us everything is above board. I won £45.50 in February and got the money with no problems – but it’s up to you if you want to play it or not.
Weekly winners of mystery cash prizes for your postcode once registered. The prize amount is based on how much the site has made through advertising each week. On this website however, it contacts winners directly if you’ve won… so once you have entered, it does the rest. Draws are Sundays at 10pm.
A brand new Emoji lottery launched recently with the first draw taking place on Sun 14 Aug. Select five emojis and hope they come up in daily draws starting soon. We’ve checked it out and been in touch with the company behind it and it appears to be legit. Extra prizes are being given out for early entrants. Once it starts the draws, you’ll need to check daily to see if you’ve won.
A brand new Emoji lottery launching the first week of August from the company behind the Free Postcode Lottery. You’ll receive an ‘emojiname’ when you sign up (a name in emojis) and if it comes up, you’ll win the prize if you claim in time. Daily draws will be held at 7pm and once it starts, you’ll need to check daily to see if you’ve won. Two people can never win one draw as each ‘emojiname’ is unique.
IF YOU WIN REMEMBER ME – just a cup of coffee would be great!

The challenge was on.. I set myself a mission to earn £50.00.. not quite the millions of dollars in that photo. I appreciate this may not seem like a lot to some people but to me this was….. Could I do it? I wondered if it was possible to make money while I slept.
At this point bed hair began to turn to hair brain…
From the comfort of my bed I reached out for my phone and began tapping.
If you are as curious as I am you may want to check these out to check out if this is actually achievable.
I think to myself If I applied myself for a solid few weeks, if I literally just focused on these…perhaps from the comfort of my own bed, then at some point I CAN EARN MONEY WHILE I AM ASLEEP –
It is at this point I wish I had an “Alexa”to put the my kettle on for me and make me coffee. I have to say I experienced one of these the other day. “Alexa” was amazing!!!
Meet big “Alexa” but she has sisters.. oh yes!!!
“Alexa” told me the time, playing me music, acknowledged me as the boss, put the kettle on…..at some point I am having one myself. I have to say I AM IN LOVE WITH “ALEXA”
I SO LOVE AMAZON!
Well folks, I would love to chat more, however I am currently listening to an audio version of “RICH DAD, POOR DAD” ROBERT KIYOSAKI on you tube . I was going to get the book but this video just saved me a few pounds, but again,
Hello my friends welcome back to another exciting fun filled blog of procrastination, adventure, and probably nonsense.
So friends let us just dive right in here with somersaults and back flips like a pro diving Olympian. (thank fully no heights are involved)
So the title today, …I have had to re word it slightly, but metaphorically as the waves of life can battle us and how those waves can come, I thought it was a great array of describing words.
“Hold your shhh ip together”
I have spoken about vision boardsand goals in other posts, and it is always good to see a measure of someone by seeing what they actually do : again “walk the walk”
So here are a couple of mine. –
Be mortgage free.
I am in the process of selling my old family home that has tenants in. Whist it has paid a portion of one morgage off, it did not cover the rent of where I was living, which was a tiny place. 4 years ago I moved from a family home to follow my dream of :-
living by the sea. I put things in storage and I lived in a caravan (I think my american family would call it a “van” or a “trailer”) for a while until I could get a house. The beaches are beautiful, I see seals often in the wild, I kayak, I have owned a small boat.
I made this dream happen!
The rent was under the market value to support the struggling family who lived there and they had no rent rise in 7 years. Knowing what it is like to struggle, I wanted to help the family out.
The time has come to sell it and move on.
The sale of the house will make me MORTGAGE FREE
To be retired at the age of 40 – I currently work part time so I am semi retired – (I tell myself)
The reality is without a miracle or a lottery win or kind benefactor, I will not be retiring anytime soon, and even if I retired from my current job I would still be involved in unpaid charity work. – I am still working at being FINANCIALLY FREE
TO BE A WRITER
Always dreamed of writing. I used to write the odd poem, been known to write the odd story, but moving on…but more recently I wanted to start living this more. I joined a group who encouraged me to “Just write!” and so began.
5 months on.. I am now currently writing reviews, write and research for friends who need support. I am thinking about an e book. I write the occasional blog and poem. I have a novel in mind which is in early stages. – I am achieving but developing.
To own my own business – I am so far off this mark I am barely off the blocks but the fact is I am off the blocks so I am progressing very slowly with ideas and options.
SHARE SUCCESSES AND FAILURES
It is great when we succeed or can share our success stories, but it is also ok to fail, as by failure we learn to grow and develop and help others out.
I am not sharing my journey for any accolade or ego trip. I am writing these as a reminder for me but also to encourage you out there, who ever you are, whatever you do to keep hold of your dreams and missions and hold on to these during the rough seas.
It can be hard to “keep our ship” together but that is when we need to dig deep and hold on to our resources and hard work already done. I strongly believe that although sometimes we may think it is all for nothing, at some point things will click.
Let me share a quick story.
As I sat at inside an american eating place yesterday, a guy is over hearing me on the phone talking to my lawyer about my house sale, and starts yelling across the restaurant to talk to me, or rather tell me about his housing issues.
I invite the stranger over to sit with me, and then begins to tell me his life story of battles with is land lady trying to evict him, not doing things legally or by the book. Going on I learn about his medical issues, and family issues, not being able to see his kids, and battle with mental health and suicide.
By the end of our conversation we had talked about long term planning, goals, life survival skills, peer to peer support, tenant advice, and the guy thanked me for making him smile and giving him a sense of hope.
This my friends, is what I live for to help other human beings out, and so occasionally you may see a paypal link to my site so I can be available and support people, whether it is free counselling, mediation, practical support etc… jack of many trades, master of none.
I have many such instances like these. It is nice to know that the things I had worked hard for and even battled could help others.
Increase Income – I have picked up more shift work. While this is not ideal and hard work it brings in just enough to cover debts – money is out there, sometimes it is a matter of how much we want it and are prepared to do for it. (I am still thinking of signing up to be a “rent a friend” though ethically this still does not sit well with me personally. I believe it is possible to DOUBLE YOUR INCOME.
My Throne Room – I promised I would be opening up a “throne room” of resources. Please do go and check it out.
So my 5 TOP TIPS today as you go about your personal missions whatever they may be are to:
What has a womble, a toilet, attraction, and hope all have in common?
I am facing the challenge Of taking my blogs and my life to the next level and I am scared.
Welcome to “Fed up of being poor” – Great to see you here.
Today I am like an excited kid in a children’s store…my mind is on fire, my heart is racing, and I am in “love” – let me share more!
First of all ……………..(he looks round to see who is listening)
I have not gone public with this, you my lovely followers are the first to know and I hope to be a huge part in…. well you are invited anyway!
WAIT FOR IT – YOU MAY NEED TO SIT DOWN.
I am opening up a passage people…. my very own secret passage…. There I said it people!
Hang in there, hang in there.. allow me to explain…
This will in fact will be a link to anther site I am creating which will be full of resources or more things, going into depth. So it could be free stuff, or tools, or information, or how to’s I have collated together on a particular topic.
I am not sure how it will develop or what it will look like, but will just be a place for folk to take what they find useful or “treasure” as I call it… or if not flush it or ignore it like “trash.”
I would love for folks to get on board as I make more connections.
One persons treasure is another persons trash – Check out my treasure n trash post but let me tell you folks here in the uk there is a huge trend gathering momentum, an army as it were, a swarm, individuals, couples, teams, and who are they and what are they doing?
These folk ARE wombles “Wombles” named after the awesome and cool cartoon ( I believe it was just uk..not sure) about some animal type creatures who would turn trash and turn it into something great and useful or valuable.
People are making good money from literally trash. They may pick up receipts from the floor and turn them into cash on their cell apps or points as one example, but they are not proud, if there is money to be made they will do it.. I want this mentality I want in. GOOGLE “WOMBLING” for more. (or whatever search engine you use.
“Love is patient, love is kind, love never gives up hope”
I have had to re edit the title of this page a few times as it covers a few areas, but I think this title really says a lot in itself.
In all of my years of charity work, fundraising work it is so humbling when you see those who cannot afford to give “give”. This is not to meant to be offensive in any way, I mean, who am I to say who cannot afford to give – I am, because I am one of the many who give without thinking, without counting the cost, whether we can afford to or not. We would give to another before our own need even if our need is greater! Together we are rich in different ways.
Welcome to my blog!
As the webpage address suggests “I am fed up of being poor” – this is not to point the finger at poor people and somehow suggest they are less of a human being than me, but the opposite – It is my obligation, my duty, my calling, to help those in poverty or are praying that phrase with bated fed up, hopeless breath..sighing “I am fed up of being poor.”
If you follow my site, thank you so so much, I love you more than I will ever be able to repay your kindness….if you are not a follower yet – I hope you soon will be.
Bit Of HIS STORY
Back in January, maybe just before, I was “invited” to a writing group, as someone who had told a friend that I was interested in writing. Now these were mostly already published authors of great books, online material, and here I was a small fry in a pan of big cheeses, no material, no idea, nadda, nothing, just some pumped up punk with a dream of writing something.
“Just write..” “Just do it”
So I began exploring with ideas…..and finally I came up with…..
yep – rags to riches story.. and this would be amazingly transformational, world changing, would get 1000 followers… I would be the king on my throne people…
and then… of course..one person points out….”
“but you are still in rags!”
so here is my back story…… I am not going to try to sell anyone anything or convince anyone my way is going to make anyone rich, because I am still in overdraft…. but people let me tell you this man is on a mission!!!!
I am researching, I am studying, I am building this blog as my journal ..real, live, on line off line journal of little old me just trying to better myself and in the process support others with what I am learning…. I am learning quick.
To recap –
I am no expert at being rich but I am an expert in being poor and having no money.- but getting there.
I am still in some debt,(just) (ish) (a small bit)(manageable) It is possible to get out as I have done!
I have paid off huge amounts of debt in less than 3 months.
I have discovered great resources, communities, businesses, bloggers…
I have found a new love(s)… an online love of blogging and search for passiveincome 9-5 job just is not where I want to be.
I have helped lots of people.
I have been helped by lots of people – this is hard and humbling especially if you are someone who is a “giver” (keep it clean people) receiving and accepting help can be very hard.
I have discovered that you discover who are genuine and sincerely want to help! – we all appreciate free things and generosity – we believe what goes around comes around. I am thankful for the huge support I have. It is good to get connected.
So……. this month has been a struggle because although it is my fault because I have overspent – I now have to put into place the strategies and tips I have been bleating on about in my posts..
I have to walk my own walk and talk less of my own talk less bleating!
Do not be afraid to ask for help or too proud to receive help.
Find ways to de-clutter and sell items – let us get some money coming in.
If you have the opportunity to work, or do more hours – take it up... suck it up for a short while, even if it is not ideal – (Someone did suggest to me escorting – but that is not me.)
Do a “talent and passions audit.” write down the things you are interested in doing and find ways to make money from it… i,e gaming, or walking the dog, or poetry, or writing, or selling…. seriously people there are ways of making money from doing almost anything.
Do not talk about it….do it!
Do not rely on others, trust in yourself.
work work work! work for your dreams – it will pay off.
