Countdown to 26!

I can hardly contain my excitement. No, not for my birthday. Well, not yet anyway. This weekend I’ll be attending an amazing seminar/course on marketing and business. We’re going to have a crash course on building a better business and pushing it into as many streams as possible. The final goal is to be wealthy and successful. :D

I know, some of you might say it’s not easy, it’s near impossible, that being wealthy means you’ll be a prick or worse, just trample everyone else in the process. However, that’s not how I see it. How do I provide for my family if all I’m earning is just a┬ámeager┬ásalary? How do I travel the world with just enough to get by? How do I make sure my family (including my kitty cats) are always in good health and happy if I only make just a little extra every month?

Money can’t buy you happiness but trust me, not having enough can make you pretty darn upset.

Therefore, I’ve opted to join this course and I’m absolutely pumped to absorb all I can for three days.

Now, the reason why I mentioned my birthday is that the start of said course will begin exactly 30 days before my birthday. I’m taking it as turning point for my life. I plan on learning as much as I can, applying as much as I can in order to build myself as much as I can before my birthday. That’s my mini goal.

I’m definitely not going to stop after my birthday. As we all know, learning NEVER stops and neither is improving oneself. I just want to use my birthday as a checkpoint of sorts and I want to be proud of myself, the day I step into the shoes of a 26-year-old. I hope to say to myself ‘I did my very best and worked very hard to be here’.

So here’s to a new beginning and I do hope to update you on my progress soon. :D

Dreaming of a Dream Job

 

I found this while perusing the internet and I now unfortunately don’t remember where I got it from. If you know the creator, let me know so I can credit them properly. :)

I just came back from a seminar on being an industry millionaire. The speaker said he could identify between 3-5 businesses that a person could delve in just by knowing their interests. I thought ‘wow. imagine being able to do ALL that at the same time!’ and you know what, the speaker is doing that exact thing now. He’s got about 15 companies under his belt and they are all based on his passions or interests.

Therefore, it would be easy to say that yes, you CAN form your dream job just by indulging in the different facets of your life while making money out of it.

You can open an online boutique while sharing your recipes at the same time. You can also publish a book about meeting new people while being a fitness instructor. The possibilities are endless! There’s no box to insert yourself into and claim, ‘I found it! My dream job!’. There are so many boxes that you can collect and tape them up to form an amazing shelf that is sturdy enough to hold all your belongings. And look at it this way, if one box crumbles, you’ll still have the others to support your things. Or just add another one!

The seminar got me really pumped up and motivated so my biz partner and I are going to do some heavy thinking and planning today for Simply Sandwiches. :D Wish us luck!

Not Easy

There are days when you get really discouraged with what you’re doing. Even if you’re pushing with all your might, things seem to leak out at the cracks.

I’m trying very hard not to delve deeper into my troubles and I’m practicing filtering what I share with people. You don’t want to seem too riled up about something when you know that it’s just part of life. Besides, all things come to an end, good things or bad.

The mantra above is what I’ve been silently chanting to myself on a daily basis. It has helped. So has dream building and being thankful for what I DO have. I think that’s a good exercise. Listing down what you’re thankful for and reciting them every morning or whenever you’re feeling down. Before you know it, all the negative thoughts have slipped away quietly from your head.

What do you do to chase the blues away?
