So you’ve declared you are “fed up of being poor” but the question is what are you going to do about it?
I guess it’s a good question but not necessarily an easy question.
For me, this led to so many other questions and work to do before I could even begin to figure out what to do such as where to begin?
What help was there?
Who could I trust?
Would I be alone in this?
Could I do this?
What was the cost or consequences?
The list was endless.
I guess to even begin to start on these questions it depends on how you say you are fed up of being poor, do you say it with conviction and real anger with determination you want to do something about it or more with deep sighs of utter misery and depression with no hope?
This is where mindset and outlook come in. You will discover I will talk about mindset alot in my posts.. Why?
Your mindset will determine your next steps and your successes and failures, I will refer to these as learning curves instead.
Let me share that recently I am on a mission to get rid of a my debts.
As part of my mission to raise monies I had managed to get a chunk of money simply by calling in my debts from those who owed me. I had also worked hard at other ways of getting money such as decluttering as an example.
For once I saw a positive figure in my bank account however, realistically in another account I was in negative figures, huge figures. I was sitting on enough to cover this debt by pooling all the money I had made that month but then it would not cover my living expenses for this month, and rent was owing and I’d got birthday’s to plan for, mothers day, anniversary, a family holiday, savings I’m trying to start, car to m.o.t, I really began to feel like I was chasing my own tail.
Suddenly I became down hearted. It would have been easy to be defeated and begin to get over whelmed, but instead I noticed how because of the hard work I had put in all month I could cover a debt, (I had already paid off my Christmas credit card) and I had savings that although I dipped into it, I had a savings pot which is a huge thing for me as I’ve never had a savings pot until this month but it covered rent.
I am now determined to work even harder. I have tasted and it was good! I have seen that if you are serious about “fedupofbeingpoor” that actually the teaching and studying I have done has paid off and I know can work for others although your route may be different to mine.
Am I intelligent? Do I have secret inside information? No, not at all and I have a long way to go of being financially free but I did work hard at setting goals, simple ones and larger ones and then looking at how to achieve this. IT CAN BE DONE!
My dream is to help others in the same situation as me and as I help myself, I also help others.
Do I promote get rich schemes – no.
Have I made it from rags to riches – no, but by taking tiny steps, taking a risk, investing in myself, and having a hunger to succeed, provide for myself and my family and to help others I am actually doing it little by little.
A friend said today that they didn’t want bits of money they wanted huge amounts.. And don’t we all right, but was that person prepared to do what it takes.. The answer is no they wanted that money to just fall into their lap.
I have to be honest for some people that does happen but that is only because somebody else at some point had to do the hard work in the first place.
I come from humble beginnings but I have high aspirations. Somebody once said it’s like you are pigeon looking at the eagles 🦅 one day I want to be that eagle, why should I have to accept that a pigeon is all I will ever be.
I have a long way to go but I am on a journey and I invite others too, because I cannot do it by myself.
