I Don’t Want My Kid To Have It Better Than Me

nobetterlife

As families go through generations, each one wants the next one to have it better than they did.

Families came over from different countries to America so their children could live the American Dream.

But where has that actually gotten us?

It has been instilled in us that you go to college and then graduate and get a job in a big corporation so we are taken care of. But that’s not how life is anymore.

They don’t take care of you, they use you until they realize that you cost too much money and then they get rid of you. You never get the responsibility you need to be fulfilling. Just when you think it is fulfilling, there will always be a wall you hit.

As each generation grows up, there is going to be a different way to live life. It’s up to that generation to figure out their life.

I don’t want my kids to have it better than me, I want them to make their own life. If it means having less than me, so be it. Maybe that’s the best thing for them.

The most important thing for me is that they are doing what makes them happy.

I’m not going to stuff it down their throat that I worked hard so that they could have a better life than me when I grew up. That’s not their decision, they aren’t making me do what I do to make life better for them.

I want them to know that life is what you make of it. It can be better or worse, depending on how you look at it.

I will help my kids with knowledge and I will always be there for them to cheer them on.

But I will not tell them how I had it worse than them or that I worked hard so that they could have it better than I did.

I feel like making their life easier/better could cause them to be lazy, like a lot of people are these days. Especially compared to our ancestors. So just imagine how we’ll be in 10 more generations. Wall-E will end up being prophetic.

We need to break that cycle and help our children to become self sufficient and teach them to use every resource available to them. If they want an answer they’ll need to find it, I won’t tell them but I will tell them how to use their resources.

I want my child end up with a life that’s happy, not with the life that I think is better than mine. I want them to make their life.

What do you think?

Happy Valentines Day But Are You In Love?

passionfire

It’s that time of year where we show the one we love with flowers, candy, and if they’re lucky, jewelry.

But I’m going to talk about loving a state of mind today.

Do you love your life?

Does it treat you good and do you smile whenever you think about it?

I do, because for the first time in my life, I’m truly happy with everything.

I have a beautiful, supporting, loving fiancé and I love what I do.

I’m doing something that feels right. I help people, spread dreams and knowledge, and I love every minute of it.

I can’t imagine doing anything else. This is my calling and I’m not going to let anyone tell me I should get a “Real Job”.

I talked about why I don’t want my child to have a better life and one of the reasons I said all of that is because we are always told to go to college and get a job. Apparently that’s the only way to be successful.

I think it’s harder to be successful that way because you end up living in a world that isn’t yours. You are in someone else’s world, with their rules, and you make someone else money so that they can live out their passion.

What about your passion?

When are you going to get to live it? When you retire?

That seems like  lot of wasted life.

Do yourself a favor and truly discover your passion and live life to the fullest.

Do What You Want!

Truly love your life and treat it like it deserves to be treated.

Live it to it’s fullest everyday because one day it won’t be there to love.

Remember this Valentines Day to Love Your Life and Live Your Passion!

How To Get Excited

How to get Excited

In the world these days it’s hard to find something to get excited about.

The economy sucks

You’re broke

You’re probably going to lose your job

There’s just not much to look forward to. But don’t fret, all is not lost. You’re still alive, right?

So what can you look forward to? What can you get excited about?

No, not life. That sucks, remember?

No, not remembering how fortunate you are. You’re not, remember?

So if not those, then what?

The future!

Not the future you’re going to have, that’s bleak, remember?

I’m talking about the future you want, your dreams!

“So come with me, where dreams are born, and time is never planned. Just think of happy things, and your heart will fly on wings, forever, in Never Never Land!”
~Peter Pan

Right now you don’t believe in those dreams, and that’s what’s causing this lack of excitement.

I’m not saying be crazy and start drawing smiley faces everywhere.

Just imagine where you want to be in your future. What is going to make you happy in life? Write that down, and look at it every day.

But just having dreams is going to make your current life even more miserable. What you need to do is write down how you’re going to make your dreams come true.

Step by step


Take a piece of paper and at the top of it write your dream (Just one of them) in big letters. Below that, write down the five steps it’s going to take you to reach that dream. Only five.
Once you get those five, get out another sheet of paper and write out the next five months or weeks, depending on the size of the dream, and separate them by several spaces. So it will look like this:

February

March

April

May

June

Adjust the dates accordingly.

You only need five, any more than that and you won’t get excited.

Now plan out those months or weeks and how you’re going to accomplish each of your five steps. Try and get each step done in one month. If you can’t then measure it out to make them all add up to 5 months

Now you have purpose, now you have hope, now you have excitement.

Your dreams can come true and you’re going to be excited.

So now you can leave Never Never Land and return to your own exciting life.

I can hear you saying “but my dream can’t come true in 5 months.” How do you know? Have you ever tried?

If after planning it out you still feel like you can’t achieve it, scrap it and move on to the next dream.

This is about getting excited, so if you’re worried that dream won’t come true then you don’t need that dream yet.

But I want you to at least try it before you scrap it. You never know the impossible until you attempt it.

What excites you? Are you reaching for your dreams?

Take A Small Step To Reach Your Passion

What is it that’s keeping you where you are in life? Why is it that you are living paycheck to paycheck? There’s nothing wrong with that life style, if that’s your passion. But if you want more, why don’t you have more?

Maybe you don’t have more because you’re not following your passion. It’s not easy to change your mindset and realize that you can follow your passion.

Look at me, I never thought that I would be able to help people with their financial life because of the way my finances were. But if you want something bad enough, you can overcome those obstacles that are stopping you.

I realized that the experiences and knowledge I gained from my past will help me get people to their dreams as well.

It’s all about taking small steps to reach your passion.

For instance, let’s say your passion is to be a professional golfer, but you don’t have any experience. What would you do?

Well, you could go to golf courses and apply to work in the restaurant or club house. You wouldn’t directly be working with golf, but you’d be surrounded with people that play it.

Maybe you’re working one day and you bring it up to somebody that you want to be a professional golfer. They may say “I know a guy that can help you out and teach you the ropes.”

Now you’re that much closer to becoming a professional golfer.

And this happened because you took a small step towards your passion. You just need to take that first step to surround yourself with your dream.

So don’t look at a job as a way to earn money, look at it as a way to lead you to your passion. If your job is only earning you money, then it’s not a job worth having.

So look at your job now and decide if it is teaching you anything about your passion. If it’s not then look for one that will. Don’t wait till tomorrow because that’s just pushing that small step further away and making it harder to take any steps forward.

So what’s your passion? What small step are you taking today to get you there?

Let Me Help You Live Your Passion

leapmountain[1]

I was just let go from my full time job. It’s scary but at the same time I know that another window is opening up.

I was holding off on revealing this new part of Financially Poor because I wanted to make sure all of the little details are ironed out like price and such. But now that I was just thrown off of a mountain, I’m going to jump into this head first.

What is it you ask? Hold on a sec. Let me lead up to it so I can give it some suspense.

For the past 2 years I’ve been doing a job that has given me knowledge and skills to do what I love, which is help people.

I’ve also, on the side, been building up a web empire, once again doing what I love. I truly believe that the web is the place to be when it comes to making your passion = your lively hood.

There is no easier, cheaper way with as much reach as the internet. Dreams can be made, and passions can be followed for next to nothing.

What I want to do now is teach you all of the knowledge I’ve soaked up through the years of what it takes to Live Your Passion. Is it easy? Meh, It’s not the most difficult thing in the world and with the knowledge and motivation that I can provide you, it will be even easier.

I want to teach you that you can do what you want and make an income doing it. If I can do it, I know anyone can.

I’m just like you, but I probably had a less likely chance of succeeding. I only have some college experience (because what they were teaching, I didn’t want to learn), I slacked off in high school because I was bored and just wanted to have fun.

I’m not a a regular 9-5 worker like the world wants to be and I don’t think most people should be. It takes away from your short life.

Now with that info you may ask yourself why you should listen to me. Well, because despite not having a college degree, or the best high school GPA, I’m making a living doing what I love. Can you say that?

I want to teach you that you can do it. It’s not impossible like you think. All it takes is a little switch to be turned on in your mind and I can flip that switch for you.

I’m not going to do a long spiel here, so find out more by clicking below. I really hope you do take the leap to Living Your Passion and not put it off until tomorrow because you’ll never succeed with the cycle of putting it off.coachingsales[1]
