Let’s be RAW!!!!
Why things happen and why they don’t
But first… this is why many people are feeling the pinch…
Since Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022, the world has become a much more expensive and dangerous place to live. Food prices have soared and fuel prices have rocketed. This has caused many people to go into debt and several are teetering on the edge of financial disaster.
Here in the UK, thousands of people are on strike as prices rise higher and higher..
People who used to donate to the food banks are now finding themselves using them. The world had only just recovered from one disaster (the pandemic) when Putin set the world on fire with his war… people’s pockets quickly emptied and for many people’s lives, what may once have seemed comfortable and certain may now seem bleak and uncertain.
Currently there are 551,000 people still working at the age of 70 in the UK. If you think about it, most of these people have been at work since they were 15 or 16, that’s around 55 years of work, and they’re still working.
There is no promised land, retirement in the 21st century is getting harder, unless you are actively adding income opportunities to your current working life, don’t be surprised if you are still actively going to work at 70.
Why things happen, and why they don’t?
Near enough everything is linked to money. either by how much you have or the lack of it. Money can equal freedom or if you don’t have enough it can equal a miserable existence. I say “existence” as being poor and relying on food banks can hardly be called “living”, it’s not thriving, it’s surviving.
The truth is, there is no certainty.
Unfortunately, there is always something happening in the world that can affect you and your family, even if it’s thousands of miles away. Many people are only one or two paychecks away from financial disaster and any major problem in the World that happens can soon tip them over the cliff.
First, let me explain some timeless myths that forever seem to be floating around the Internet.
Myth 1. People get Rich making other people poor. This simply is not true. Rich people mainly own companies, these have been put together by years of hard work. These companies create jobs in the community and offer people opportunities to progress and develop their own talents.
Myth 2. In order to get rich you either have to be lucky, be born into wealth or be crooked. This is another myth. Becoming wealthy involves planning, hard work and months, possibly years of failure. Some luck is involved but most success can be down to finding a workable plan and sticking to it.
Myth 3. I’m too old/young or just too busy to be rich/wealthy. This myth is even more stupid than the last one. In this modern world involving the Internet kids as young as 5 have been known to strike it rich and people as old as 90+. There is no age limit for success, if your mind is up to it, you can do it.
The average millionaire is not a single guy sitting in his mums basement making fortunes on YouTube. The average millionaire would probably have started with nothing or very little, have debts, bills and a family, possibly a mortgage and a definite lack of excuses.
Excuses keep people poor.
The truth is, there is no lack of money in the world. The Rich have most of it because they set out to be rich. They believe in themselves and they accept temporary failures. They don’t point the blame for failure at anyone else. The problem today is no one really wants to accept responsibility and are only too willing to point the finger at someone else.
Our future is in our hands
we are designing it one way or another every day by how we think and how we act. The question to ask yourself right now is, is what you are doing today moving you closer to where you want to be, or are you just treading water?… most are just treading water, but this doesn’t have to be you.
Be honest with yourself. If your life is stalling, you have to regroup your thoughts and replan your future, it’s as simple as that. People overcomplicate things and come up with a thousand reasons (excuses) not to do things, but very few reasons to actually go and do them..
Technology Is Getting Easier
My point here is that technology is getting easier for everyone. Whereas people of 60,70, 80+ would have baulked at using computers, many are now teaching others. Never has there ever been a better time in history to start a home based business, the Internet for all its faults has revolutionised the way we do business and puts everyone on an equal footing.
You no longer have to beg the bank for a bank loan to get started in your own home based business. You can get started for less than $200. Many people (of all ages) have created new careers and new lives of freedom off of the back of a business being run from either their lounge or bedroom.
I’m no teenager myself but I’m not ready to curl up and retire, I’m currently running two internet based businesses, one is a self publishing business and the other is a brand new print on demand business. The former has been profitable over the last two years and this new one is yet to make money, but it’s early days.
Have a great day…
