It’s been a while since I’ve blogged. I don’t know why. Writer’s block? Lack of motivation? Just too many things going on I guess.
It’s strange how I went from being totally motivated and focused to well, nothing much. Actually… not completely. I did manage to hit the send button and committed myself into buying a home. I’ve been thinking about it for a couple of years but just had so many doubts and worries. Buying a home is a lot of responsibility. Not to mention a huge debt. It’s on my check list of, “To do by the age of 30.” And it’s happening. Lots of paperwork and red tape along with soooo much frustration! Through this process there have been quite a few times I’ve wanted to back out. But I haven’t yet. Success doesn’t come easy.
Even though I haven’t been blogging and doing much with business ventures, I’m still working on other goals. That’s still progress :O)
So what happened…? Why haven’t I blogged and why did my mind go blank?
Well… I got in with an MLM company that I was sure was going to take off. Talk about being out of my comfort zone. I was going to meetings, meeting new people, driving out of town, recruiting day and night. I really put myself out there. The company started from the right place, had good ideas and saw big things. But like a lot of businesses, it failed. As it failed, I kind of let myself fail. I was extremely disappointed, angry , frustrated. I was completely against any other MLM and online businesses. I didn’t want to hear a darn thing about it. You put all your time and effort into it and it goes to smoke. I decided to walk away. After I did, I ended up in a place where I was standing still. Wondering if this type of business would get me anywhere. Would I have to be like so many others and work a 9 -5 until I had enough money to retire? Not a good place I was in. Depression had moved in.
Some time had past and to my surprise, a little moping around did me some good. Eventually I realized things don’t always turn out as you expect them too. They had great ideas, a great vision. Obviously they truly believed it would happen, and it did. Just fell short and that’s all it really is. Nothing dishonest, nothing deceitful. I was able to learn from it and move on.
I eventually got into another MLM type business. I think it’s been about 3 months. It’s still in the testing phase for me. So far it’s going pretty well. It’s not something that demands much of my time. I’ve been profiting a little everyday. I should be getting paid soon…note I said “should.” Crossing my fingers lol X.
I think it’s time now I start dabbing in a few more things. You see, I don’t particually enjoy what I do. I am thankful, yes. But I feel that my time can be used towards something more positive. Something that makes a difference. In order to get to that place, I need to keep my job and I need to keep finding other opportunities to build wealth. I can do 5 different things on a part time basis and bring in extra money. One of the 5 could land me in a great position where I can think about walking away from my day job and pursue my dreams on a full time basis. Or…the extra money will help fund my real estate property and in some time, I will have enough cash flow and walk away. Whatever the case may be, I know that I have a desire for something more. I know what I want and I am willing to make the sacrifices to achieve them. A lot of people say they want a lot of things, but the problem is, it’s all talk. And I ask myself, why aren’t they doing something about it. You can start small, take baby steps. The most important thing is that you do something.
I stress this over and over again…write a list of goals. Make a vision board. You’ll thank me for it. Why should you? You have dreams right? Then why not? I’d like to be able to go to Bora Bora every summer without worrying about how I am going pay for it.
We get caught up in everyday life. I get lost from time t0 time. I love myself, I love my family and friends and I love my life. Therefore, I always come back to where I need to be. The NO doubt, NO hesitation, NO fear mentality creeps it’s way back up and from there, nothing is going to stop me from getting an inch closer to my destiny. So, I say it’s OK to take a break sometimes. You need it. A clear mind works best. If you need to feel certain feelings, feel them so you can move. I’m living proof that’s it’s OK to get lost once and awhile. You just need to find your way back. Believe that you are always capable no matter what gets in your way. If you believe in yourself, anything is possible.
