Hold your Shhhh…ip together.

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.

Be Appy to make money

Welcome,

If you have access to the computer or a phone apple or android then you can get games and all sorts in the apps.

I like playing games and I like earning money so I wondered if I could combine the two.

I’m often bored and like most people spend a lot of time on my phone and what’s the phrase you may hear alot,. “time is money”

So I ask you what is your time worth?

I have to be honest I’ve never been asked that nor have I thought about it until recently.

In the past I would chill and watch mind numbing TV or play on games consoles or generally waste time.

I never minded it as unwinding and relaxing is good, but recently I’ve been thinking, what if I can turn my passions into money?

Can I watch the TV and get paid?

Can I play on my cell phone or games console and get paid?

Can I go on walks or shopping and still get paid?

Can I get paid to sleep?

I get paid to do all of those, yes even sleep..

Then my mind starts going into over drive as this list could be endless and you can see where I’m going with this.

I have friends moaning how skint (poor) they are yet when I tell them there are ways of making “passive income” (extra money… I’m even picking up on monetary lingo) I get strange looks as if I’m lying or the sidelines aren’t big enough steaks for them. I know from my experiments that small change very soon adds up and the more you start to explore this field and hunt for online treasure the more you can find, its endless and no excuses… I mean 30p just to pick up a receipt that people have dropped.. Pick up as many as you can and that’s free coffee and cake money or Mcdonalds in my case.

EARNING POTENTIAL IS ONLY AS LIMITED AS YOUR MIND.

I have to share something and I’m embarrassed but, as I have been on my journey, I’ve wanted to keep the nuggets of gold (disclaimer not actual gold) I’ve discovered to myself, as in websites, videos, blogs, links, books, people, all that helped to get me this far without knowing.

I mean who wouldn’t, but I’m wrong to do this as to be honest these are not actually my nuggets, they are the result of other people’s hard work or research.

I am all up for the easy ride because I’m lazy by nature I like to take it easy, however I know if I want to succeed and be a millionaire, – this may not happen for a while or at all but I sure am going to try and I’m going to push open every door that comes my way and I’m going to work hard. (mostly because I want to prove scoffers and those that laugh or doubt me wrong)

I want to buy that large house or that new car..I am visualizing, I construct visualization boards.

When I started this journey I had a dream or vision of a long corridor and lots of doors, some open and others not and I was distracted by them all however one door was glowing white, kinda like you may see on movies like some heavenly door but this door represented my goal to be an entrepreneur to make money.

Some may quote “the love of money is the route to all evil” and I respect that, however the more money I get, the more I spend on others, so I am actually never going to be rich as I give it away.

Maybe this is what true wealth, is as you can’t take it with you when you die but you can leave an inheritance or Legacy behind to help others.

So, I’m on this journey and I’m giving myself goals..double passive income amount, save for Christmas, save for deposits, save for holidays, earn extra for holidays and it’s all about more more more! “please sir i’d like some more”(oliver twist)

So this post is for those heroes and heroines which I will link to and I will add to.

I hope you find these useful.

I look forward to hearing from you.
