Stay Hungry

Welcome,

Can I ask a question. “Are you hungry right now..and if so what are you hungry for?

Are you fed up of being poor? Do you know what it is like to-be-so-fedup-of-beingpoor?

“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 debt maybe 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 better human 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!

Stay hungry!

Achieve those dreams?

Continue to be so fed up of being poor.

God bless you and thanks for reading and following.

Hold your Shhhh…ip together.

Fed up of being poor logo. 3 people heading on a bridge towards the sun reaching out
Reaching out to others and achieving goals and dreams together

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 boards and 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:

Hold on to dreams and goals,

Keep hold of the Long game.

Keep walking the walk – lead by example.

Choose your mentors wisely.

Use your training and resources.
