I was really bad with money just a few years ago.
I didn’t have a lot of money and I thought more money could solve all my problems.
I would sit down thinking about all the things that I would do if I made more money and how much happier I’d be with all those things.
But no matter what I did I found myself in the same place: anxious at the end of the month with not enough money to pay my bills.
I dealt with anxiety at that point in my life without being fully aware of it…
Hello, and let me start by saying thanks.
This is a pretty long article about my life story. And you might not have the time to read through it all, so I wanted to get this out of the way — thank you.
Thank you for being here, whether you saw this story and decided to click on it or you found it in the middle of all the other articles out there. Either way, thanks for clicking on it.
And thank you for being who you are.
We don’t hear that a lot, but I think it’s so vital…
These walls inhibit us, preventing us from escaping into the unknown, which, as scary as it may seem, is also the only source for uncovering new opportunities.
Total agree with this.
It's so easy to get trapped in the comfort of our everyday lives - whether we like our circumstances or not. It's comforting and it feels secure. But it's usually by breaking down the walls we've created for ourselves and taking a step into the unknown that we find the most growth and happiness.
Loved reading this article. It's not easy sharing personal stories online and getting vonlurable but it usually helps a lot of people as a reasult. Thanks for sharing your story 😊
…ooled into thinking an ‘office’ on a Balinese beach will provide you with deep joy and fulfillment. Simply changing your zipcode and shortening your work hours alone won’t give you the joy earned from fostering close relationships at work and a sense of achievement.
Love this so much!
I've had a lot of success at my job over the past 2 years - I've gone from a minimum wage front desk worker to an assistant manage - and so I make a lot more money than I did when I started at my job.
But recently, I've come to realize that the relationships I've built over the past 2 years are way more important than the money and the job itself.
Money, success, and being able to work from anywhere in the world are all good, but the relationships along the way are most important peaces of the puzzle.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful article. I really enjoyed the read.
It’s been more than a year since the global pandemic started, and most of the world went into lockdown.
When the pandemic first started, I didn't think of it as much. I thought lockdowns would end in less than a month, and we’d be back to normal in no time.
Obviously, I was wrong.
My denial eventually led me down a path I didn’t like. I stopped exercising, ate like crap, and forgot all about my financial goals. But fast forward about a year, and I’ve got everything under control once again.
Here are some things that helped me hit…
If you actually learn the lesson in this piece, your life will change forever.
There are always people who will complain and blame others and society for their own incapacity. And you can't change those people's minds.
But if you're open minded and you can think beyond the scope of your beliefs, things start to change.
Accept this truth, and your life will change for the better: at the end of the day, it's your own beliefs that shape your reality. And you can escape your reality by shaping your thoughts. Think you can and you will, think you can't and you won't.
Thanks for sharing this piece Tim.
Everyone talks about morning routines and how they can set you up for the perfect day. But that’s not the entire truth.
You see, there’s so much more to having a perfect day than just starting it right.
Morning routines are amazing and a good one will in fact set you up for success. But the rest of the day is just as important, if not more.
I’m guessing the following ideas look pretty familiar to you if you’ve read articles on morning routines before:
In January 2020, my car broke down and it cost me a couple thousand dollars to fix it up. At that time, I had saved up about $2000 in over a year’s time. And not only did I have to spend all of that to fix my car, but I also had to borrow some money for it too.
After I fixed the car, it broke down again and this time I didn’t have any more money to fix the car with.
So, it’s January 2020, I have no money, I have a credit card balance that I have to…
Before quarantine, I thought we were divided as a society.
But in the initial phases of reopening, I’ve realized I was wrong.
The reopening showed me that people can still come together and work toward reaching the same goal. It showed me that we can be united and that we can make a change when we’re all on the same page.
“United we stand, divided we fall.”
Here’s what I’ve learned about people after the reopening.
Most people wear masks now. In the grocery store, at the gym, and on public transit. But, we still smile. And I love that.
I turned 20 on August 12, 2020. And going into 20 I decided to look back on my teen years and share some of the lessons I’ve learned from them.
I’ve made some accomplishments that I’m quite proud of for my age. My biggest accomplishment to date has been getting promoted to a sales position at the gym I work at.
I started working at the gym at the beginning of 2020 as a front desk associate and got promoted in about 7 months. …
