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!

You Have More Power Than You Think

You have more power

Knowledge = Power

It’s an old saying that will always hold true. You hold power over people by keeping them out of the loop and not allowing them to get educated.

Well my financial freedom seeker, you are educated and you have more knowledge than you think you do.

You may not be a genius about spaceships, but if a spaceship builder tried to  paint, write a poem, run a business, clean or paint a house, cut hair, invest in the stock market, or even sell something on eBay, or whatever your passion is; They couldn’t do it as well as you. Why? Because they haven’t done it as long as you or care about it enough to try and be as good as you. Just like you don’t care enough or have the passion to build spaceships.

That’s what it’s all about…passion. If you have passion about something you will soak up as much knowledge as you can and become the best at it, because you love it.

Spaceship builders love building spaceships, you love your passion, therefore you 2 are equally geniuses.

True?

Damn right it’s true.

dumbest-person-in-who-wants-to-be-a-millionaire This is a fake image….but it still helps my point

Her passion isn’t large things so obviously this isn’t her forte. So if you have a passion for elephants, the moon, or large things, then you could help teach her a thing or 2.

The point is that you know something she doesn’t and I’m sure she knows something that you don’t.

You can help each other if you decide that you want to know what the other person know.

So let’s find out what power that gives you:

  • You can charge her for your knowledge
  • You can give your knowledge to her
  • You can keep her from knowing

All of the options are possible but the first 2 are going to allow you to Live Your Passion.

Giving away some knowledge and making money off of more detailed knowledge will allow you to Do What You Want and have a lot of power.

Everyone knows something that other people don’t.

EVERYONE!

No ifs, ands, or buts about it.

You do. And it may be as simple as how to make a baby quite, or how to juice an orange.

There are people out there that don’t know how and are beginning to learn those things.

So who’s going to teach them?

You!

The world needs to know what you know. So leverage it for your benefit as well. That way everyone wins.

They get knowledge and power and you can Do What You Want and make a living, but you will always have more power because you started before them. So in fact you have more power than you did keeping it for yourself because now they look to you for help instead of someone else.

So, like I said, you have more power than you think.

Use it wisely.

What do you have power in? Let me know in the comments and then maybe someone will want some of your power.

Tweet this post or Facebook share it to let others know that they have the power!!

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.

Help other people take a small step by Tweeting this post and Facebook Sharing it.

 

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

Get Your Rant On

ranting

Rant (Verb)

1: to talk in a noisy, excited, or declamatory manner

2: to scold vehemently

Every now and then something can really get on your nerves and you just want to yell. I’ve had many of those moment but too many times choose to hold it in.

Apparently it’s not the best thing to do. I’m sure a lot of people have this same issue, so I’m here to help. Let out your anger and frustration below. Don’t hold back on anything.

This may get family unfriendly quickly but that’s ok because some people may highly dislike kids anyway. If you don’t want to read my rants but you want to start ranting right away then just skip to the Your Turn section at the bottom.

Rant 1

Let me start it off. I hate that our government isn’t stepping up for the people and is instead standing up for corporations that will do anything to make a quick buck because the people that make decisions don’t have to live in the same world that they affect. You don’t see a rich neighborhood next to factories do you?

That’s what I have a problem with. It’s not that they are rich, it’s that they get their money by making part of the world worst off than when they started. Is that every rich person? No and I don’t have a problem with them. But if a company gives my representative money to help vote to make my neighborhood worse off just so they can make more money to give that same representative then I have a problem with that.

Rant 2

Oil companies! Can you please allow us to have clean energy? I know it doesn’t make you as much money as you would like but I promise you won’t be broke….unless you choose not to embrace it. It’s the same with industries throughout time. If you don’t innovate then you will die off.

Embrace change and make the world better….it’s not that hard I promise. Just put some more of those oil profits into it and you’ll have it in no time. You’re Welcome!

Rant 3

The Economy! I know there are a lot of people without jobs right now. Whose fault is that? Ours! We created a world that we can not support. We over created way too many of the same thing (houses) that we could not afford to keep up with. We put all of our eggs in 1 basket. Obviously that was a bad call. Manufacturing isn’t where we need to be. People overseas make it a lot cheaper and will eventually make it just as good if not better than we can. What’s going to happen then? Even more job losses. We need to get people away from that and into jobs that actually have a future. The internet is like a whole new world that we should start working more towards. It allows us to barter a lot more effectively and can help bring in a lot of money. So why aren’t more people doing it?

Partly because they don’t know what they can do to make money because they haven’t learned it in school. We should teach more entrepreneurism in the school and stop making our kids less creative by teaching them with standardized tests. That just created standardized people. We need to evolve but we’re still stuck in the past.

Your Turn

Well that was my rants for the day. That felt really good. I’m probably going to do this again.

Get your rant on in the comments below. Do you hate that I wrote this post, hate my site, hate your boss, hate that the work week is so long, are you annoyed by your kids, or a significant other that hides money from you. Whatever it is let it out into the world. Maybe someone can help you if you need it. If you don’t want people to know who you are then by all means get creative with your name.

What won’t be allowed: Any Racism, Sexism, Slurs….you get the pictures, but feel free to use some cursing if need be.

Now Get Your Rant On!

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?
