Caught Up Making a Living instead of Designing Your Life?

28 Jan

We are all insane at one point of our lives. Some stay in that same path for a lifetime.

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

Doing the same thing we’ve always done will get us the same results we’ve always had.

The same work routine keeps us comfortable & stable but paychecks stay the same and so does the limited opportunity to do other things.

We get caught up in making a living to pay bills and support our families but we don’t design out life the way we want…

Whether you have kids, work two jobs, or go to school I’m here to tell you that you can design your life the way you want.

Just ask the right questions & you’ll get the right answers.

How can I afford what I want ?

How much time can I dedicate to planning for my/family’s future?

What can I do on the side for at least 1 hour a day to boost my income?

Have more than one stream of income

More expenses & inflation, same paycheck …

As you’re at work today think about your paycheck.

How much can you use for yourself after you’ve paid all your bills?

If you don’t have anything left, its time to prioritize & cut expenses… if not it’ll be difficult to grow because you’re living paycheck to paycheck.

If you can separate at least $100 from your paycheck, then you have some room to start making moves to make more income as you work.

How to make more money while having a job

1. Put $100/mo into a savings, CD or 401k account. (Less risk but interest rates fluctuate based on market conditions)

2. Put $100/mo. into a stock (etrade requires a $200 minimum deposit to open an account).

3. Invest $100/mo into working from home offering products or services with a network marketing company such as BodybyVi, Yoli, Ameriplan, Avon, marykay, Amway, etc…

4. Get a license in Real Estate or other programs to do contract work on your own hours.

As a student of life I’ve tried all these options and feel #4 would work best for me at this point.

If you want to transform your life and do something more than just a 9-5pm it’s time to start thinking outside the box. Research, ask, and invest.

What are you going to do with your next paycheck?

Choose wisely!

Have a productive week! 🙂
