Fear leads to you giving up

Giving up

When thinking about starting an online business we often create these sort of limitations in our mind out of fear. Limitations like, I’m too old, I haven’t got the skills and that sort of thing.

These limitations don’t just make us give up physically but mentally as well.  You know I’ve given up on a lot of things. I wouldn’t say I’ve been close to giving up on my business.

But fear and negative thoughts have made me procrastinate a lot. Like literally wasting months of not doing anything.

We often get too comfortable in our own shell that were afraid to come out. ‘My job is getting me by so I don’t need to go further’. Is getting by enough though? You’d much rather have security.

For me, working in retail is pretty much what i’ve been doing from day 1. I’ve hated every minute of it. I didn’t really think about it at the time but time flies, one minute it’ll be a year and the next it’ll be two years.

Doing something I hate until retirement is me giving up on life.

When you think of it that way, you can’t afford to let fear stop you from making a change and trying something new.

2 main types of fears and how to use them to your advantage:

1. Fear of failure:

Failure should be seen as being a positive thing. Why? Because your one step closer to success. Once you get a practice paper handed back to you by your teacher, it’s your choice on whether you want to learn the topics of the questions that you got wrong.

The same thing applies to anything including starting your own business.

2. Fear of a new challenge:

Were already challenged day by day. We choose to accept the challenge by waking up and going about our day. I say this is a challenge because we need to trade our lives for a living.

So really, new challenges are there to be taken because we have nothing to lose.  Be prepared to take on a new challenge as you are everyday, not knowing what to expect.

If we can go about our daily lives with no expectations then I think ‘fear’ is a pretty strong word for why we even give up on trying.

I mean how can we possibly know what the outcome of something is going to be without experiencing it.

I’ll leave that to your imagination guys. In fact, think about what is holding you back. I mean think hard. People often give basic answers like ‘I’m afraid of losing money’. Use that as a starter and then keep on asking yourself ‘why’ until you come down to the main reason.

Let me know your reasons to giving up on trying.  Either drop a comment or email me for a full on conversation. I will be happy help and also share my experiences which I’m sure you will definitely be able to relate to!

Speak to you soon guys.

Peace!

Extreme pictures lead to fear

Trapped in fear

Is it good to have fear?  Letting fear stop you from things that can transform you and your lifestyle for the better is dangerous.

Let me explain. People say opportunities come and go, when in reality they are always there. But fear can blind you from opportunity.

Now that is dangerous, because you will be stuck and give up on even trying.

I know fear of failure is one of the key things to stepping away from your opportunity. But in reality losing our battle to fear makes us failures already.

How do we overcome fear?

Well the first and most obvious thing I can think of is take up new challenges without thinking about it. I know that seems like shitty advice but they might not end up being as bad as you thought.

Another thing that is very important is research. We often fear the worst for things simply due to negative comments. I’ve spoken about negativity before but you get the picture.

Take some inspiration off successful people. Fear can also come from us feeling alone and not having any guidance. Following the footsteps of mentors, role models, successful entrepreneurs can help you over come fear physiologically.

This advice that I’m giving you has come from personal experience. You know what, I think it will be rude not to share my journey as I go along. I feel that sharing my journey may help you because believe it or not I too am someone that ‘overthinks’, ‘creates extreme pictures’, ‘Fears certain challenges’.

What am I doing and how am I getting by?

So right now I am learning the art of affiliate marketing and starting an e-commerce business.

I’m currently putting more of my money towards e-commerce due to lack of funds. You can do affiliate marketing without spending money anyway so I guess it works out.

Now I feared trying to start e-commerce. Me overthinking and giving myself info overload without knowing how it worked was killing me.

I picked Amazon as my platform to sell products on. I brought this course and following this step by step process just calmed my nerves and got rid of my doubts.

I’m in the process of launching my first product which is really exciting.

I’ll tell you now that none of them are easy. But why do I have this stubborn mindset for my future goals and don’t let fear stop me?

It’s because I know they work, just like most things do if you keep at it. I have guidance from personal mentors and I aspire to be like them.

Life is about trial and error, you win some and lose some. The key thing here is why let fear stop you from having the chance of winning?

That win could cover up your previous losses and all of a sudden they have been forgotten about.

So I will end this with my quote of the day haha.

Everything you want is on the other side of fear. -Jack Canfield

The other side of fear

Creating an extreme picture

Negative thoughts

Have you ever wondered why you can’t get things done for some reason? We all put it down to being lazy which is partially true. But deep down there is something else that is stopping us from taking action.

I’ve spoken about comfort zones before, something were not used to or haven’t tried before can make us feel nervous and scared.

It’s normal to have a range of emotions filter through your body about things. Don’t you find it strange that we come to conclusions before anything has even happened?

I mean it’s natural to be over protective over ourselves and try and do what’s best for us.

But do you truly believe that you are being the best you can be? The truth is success is endless, so the answer is no.

Entrepreneurs are constantly trying new things to gain more success, some fail and some work. Life is about trial and error. We don’t know what to expect tomorrow morning, but were psychologically prepared to take anything.

Why can’t we be like that when trying new things? Being over protective over ourselves is us trying to do what’s best for us. How do we know if trying a new route and starting a different journey is what is best for us?

If you want to live the best life you can possibly live then your going to have to stop making decisions based on predictions and go for it.

Nothing ever comes easy, we have to work for success, but the difference is that you will be fulfilled when the rewards come in.  Compared to working your ass off just to earn an average salary for example.

5 Tips on how to get rid of negative thoughts

  1. Be Positive: Waking up in a positive mood is beneficial in so many ways. Your body language and the way you approach situations will help your day go smoothly.
  2. Stop overthinking:  Don’t let your negative thoughts control you otherwise you are bound to have a shit day. I would see that as a waste of 24 hours.
  3. Treat yourself often:  Why not reward yourself every now and then? were all working our asses off trying to get by through this pandemic. It’s the little things that will keep you going.
  4. Find some inspiration: Believe it or not there are millions of people that are exactly like yourself. Be inspired by those that have come out of their shell and reaped the rewards of success. It is evidence for you that anything is possible and you yourself can change the outcome of your lifestyle.
  5. Surround yourself with positive people: You are the company you keep. If you hang out with people that are goal driven and always looking for ways to improve their life, then you will naturally follow and do the same thing.

How I deal with negative thoughts

Before I explain how I deal with negative thoughts, let me give you a bit of background information as to where I was.

I’m not the same person I used to be. Someone that was just messing around, constantly going out and not really having any purpose in life. I always looked at these rich people and dreamt of having what they have but never really did anything about it.

I got fed up with my life, I was without a job for a long time and had no money to carry on doing what I was doing. So I stopped going out and was stuck at home and was depressed.

That isn’t the full story… but you get the picture.

That is something I think about when I have negative thoughts. It makes me want to do anything to not go back to where I was. So I am always willing to try new things until I am a long way away from my past.

I’m also very confident, I am a big fan of cars and my dream car is an Audi rs7. A lot of us will just be like nope I can never afford this 100k car.  Not me. I keep telling myself that I will have this car one day. I’m so stubborn that nothing can put me off.

So I use my past and goals to stop negative thoughts from taking over.

If your not happy with your life then use your present lifestyle and your dreams to push out that fucking negativity.

Enough of creating extreme pictures and create dream pictures! You got this!

Speak to you soon guys

Peace!

Positive morning

 

 

 

Over thinking about situations

Overthinking

 

We overthink things because we have un-answered questions.

Our minds are always repeating the same two words constantly. ‘what if’.

No matter what the situation is were never satisfied until we know the full story and all of the pieces are put together.

There’s a story to everything in life. It is hard to make changes even with inspiration, believe it or not. The reason being is because of the over thinking.

When you put yourself in your idols shoes and aspire to be like them, you try and find answers to all the questions.

Questions you don’t have answers for:

‘How am I going to do this’?

‘I can’t do this because’?

‘I don’t have this to be able to do this’?

Then overthinking leads to doubt. When we start to doubt ourselves, we give up on even trying. This is why were stuck in the same situation and waste our years away. Living an unhappy lifestyle and not being able to do or have the things you want in life.

I myself am a huge overthinker and if you can relate you just know that it is a dark place that we lock ourselves in. Our negative thoughts make us sad and we start to feel sorry for ourselves.

Now you must be thinking, how the fuck is this guy an overthinker?

I could never have imagined doing something like this, blogging and investing a lot of money for my business is me being way out of my comfort zone.

If I was comfortable with my current situation of working in retail and not being able to do what I want with a below average salary, then I wouldn’t be doing any of this.

Why? Because being an overthinker, I would of put it off before even starting.

When were stuck and we feel like there is no way out of anything, everything seems impossible. We have our doubts and never give anything a chance.

Why you should get out of your comfort zone and give things a chance:

Treat it like trying your favourite foods that are made by different chefs. You will always be positive on the outcome without even thinking about it. You will also eventually find your favourite chef.

Your chef is your solution. The solution that is going to give you a way to get out of your current lifestyle.

Deep down were not satisfied although we may feel like we are comfortable because your daily routine is on repeat and you know how to get by.

Trying new things is always uncomfortable because you never know what the outcome is.

How have I started my journey being an overthinker?

You know how when you overthink something and then find out the truth and all of a sudden your like what the fuck was I thinking?

Yh it’s kind of like that. I’ve started to overthink less because I have found that getting out of my comfort zone isn’t too bad after all.

These new things that I have given a chance to, some of them have been a success.  Now all of a sudden I’ve stopped overthinking with new challenges because I have that thought in my mind that this too can have a positive outcome.

All i’m going to say is you never know until you try!

So I put out this message to all of my fellow overthinkers. ‘Why not keep on getting out of your comfort zone until you are finally comfortable?’

Speak to you soon guys,

Peace!

 

 

 

 

 

Escape from retail

Working in retail for years sucked for me. I can appreciate the fact that people do like working in retail, I have nothing against you guys.

I’m pretty sure a lot of you guys can relate; I didn’t want to work harder than I had to for managers that pile their stress on you, or customers that treat you like a peasant and expect you to treat them like royalty.

I’m surprised I actually have a tongue considering the amount of times I had to bite it! haha. It seems like i’m going over the top but i’d say i’m genuinely telling you how it is. If you work in a supermarket, I feel your pain!

All jokes aside. I personally felt that I am wasting my life away having a job that I didn’t like.  It wasn’t for-filling enough. Working split shifts and having your weekends taken away from you. I also felt that I was doing way too much for what I was getting paid.

My dreams seemed non existent because I felt as if I was stuck in sinking sand and there was no way out. When your at that stage, you have to find a way to break that fucking wall down.

Not being career driven for people like us almost comes naturally because having a retail job can slowly take away your ambitions and you start to get comfortable.

Deep down you know your not satisfied.

Where do I start?

First of all you got to use this crap experience to sike yourself up and find some motivation.

You’ll be on the right track with the right mindset. Mindset is the key to success.

Be motivated to look for answers. The best place to start is to look into an affordable way of having a second income that will eventually become your main source of income.

Look into affiliate marketing. What that is, is you basically earn commission for promoting other company’s products. Should you make a sale, you will earn a percentage of that sale.

I know exactly what your thinking. We work in a dead end job for a reason. We have no other skills apart from customer service.

Funny you’d say that because customer service is a great skill to have when being an affiliate.

Thoughts?

“I have no tech skills so this just seems impossible”

You don’t need to be good with technology to be an affiliate. As long as you know the basics of using a standard laptop or computer then your good to go.

“I don’t have enough money to start an online business”

Money is not a problem as you can advertise and start off with a really low budget and still get results.

Having a business online is the complete opposite of owning your own shop. In terms of the amount of money you spend.

“This sounds dodgy, probably just another scam”

It might only seem that way because it probably sounds too good to be true? The fact that you only need to focus on the selling part and not the business and still earn a load of money.

Letting these doubts take over will stop you from your chance of escaping your current situation. It may only seem dodgy because you don’t have enough information on how it works.

You know what they say, you will never know unless you give it a try.

Benefits of becoming an affiliate

  • You can work from home: Put your feet up on the table and work from your laptop. You can work when you want, for how long you want. Quality is better than quantity.
  • No more split shifts: The fact that you can work when you want for however long you want… you no longer have to be told to work on a certain day. Why not have the weekend off.
  • Be your own boss: No more torture from your managers.
  • High income: You have the opportunity to become free financially as there is no cap on the amount of money you could make.  Retire early, why not?

Why do we dream about falling?

Bad dream
Bad dream

Our dreams are depicted on what is happening with our lives. This is very common, I had experienced this myself a few years back.

What does it really mean?

Is it a psychological matter? We could lack confidence, we believe were failures or we just feel that we can’t win in life.

Falling is an indication of insecurities, instabilities and anxieties.

These feelings can appear in a number of situations. It’s more common with people that tend to have bad experiences and without even knowing it, it has hit them harder than they thought.

We could feel like it isn’t a big deal but when coming across the same experience again is when you start to question it.

Is it really something we should be concerned about?

I personally feel that we should analyse our lives and pay strong attention with the things we aren’t really happy about.

If your someone who has ambition and has goals to achieve then i’d say that you shouldn’t ignore it.

3 tips on how to overcome insecurities

People who have insecurities are the ones that get treated like shit. It could even be from close ones and not only strangers. What we don’t realise is that our words have affect on people so we need to choose them wisely.

Few tips on overcoming your insecurities:

1. Believe in yourself: The only person that can control the outcome is you. Your actions are very important and if you have belief in yourself then you will be able to ignore whatever negative energy is coming your way.

2. Ignore your bad experiences: Now this must seem like a stupid thing to say because I myself couldn’t ignore things that were so hurtful. But I have mentioned before how things are never permanent and of course while it’s fresh your going to struggle to ignore it.

But eventually it will be easier to ignore. The more you experience it the stronger you get because you will be prepared.

Being able to ignore your bad experiences is huge because nothing can get in your way and you will be very successful in life.

3. Controlling your emotions:  One way to control your emotions is meditation. Is it a coincidence that majority of the successful entrepreneurs meditate? My mentors included. At first even I was like na that’s not me. But you will only know how much of an impact it can have on your life by doing it.

Being relaxed and having the right mindset will allow you to control your emotions. So when you fail it is easier to get back up and keep moving forward. Just like having a bad experience. When your in that same situation again by having the right mindset, you will be able to handle anything negative that is coming your way.

Hopefully after this you will be dreaming about flying. Everyone has a chance to become successful and live the life they’ve always wanted. Never let anything bring you down!

What life took from me

Hey guys, just came back after a long walk with my dog. I tend to get a lot of quiet time to myself when going for walks. This had me in a  deep thought about what life is all about and what impact certain things have on us.

I feel that this is a good topic to talk about.

So what has life taken from you? Whether it is something positive or negative both can invite a number of emotions that make us take certain actions.

There may be some actions that we are not proud of and there may be some actions that has helped us deeply.

I feel that anything that life has taken from us should always be taken positive. I know that if it was a death of a loved one then you wouldn’t agree. But when it’s not fresh anymore and you have eventually moved on then you start seeing life in a different way.

We may start appreciating life more and want to make something of ourselves to make that loved one proud. We can learn from anything that life has taken from us no matter what it is.

These rush of emotions are like drops of rain, some drops reach the ground quicker than others.

Eventually they dry out. That is when our minds start to change. Even though there are positives to take from every situation, people tend to go the wrong way and give up on life.

Easier said than done but you have to be strong. Life doesn’t only take but it also gives.

The greatest thing that life has given us is people. We help each other. Maybe that’s why the population is increasing because we trust that we have people to rely on and to look after us.

Whenever there are highs there are lows. This is just how life goes. Again easier said than done but when back on the ground, use the support that the ground has given you to stand tall.

Follow your dreams…whatever they may be. Don’t let life knock you down. Even if you are trying hard to hit back, don’t let yourself give up.

A quote from good old rocky: “It ain’t about how hard you hit…It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward”.

If there’s one thing that I have learnt in life through my experiences is that money alone is not the solution to freedom. Finding happiness is what is key because you will always be a positive person.

Make the world a better place and help others by feeding off your positive energy.

We lose a lot of things in life but the one thing we should never lose is hope.

Speak to you soon guys…Peace! 🙂

 

 

 

 

Does the world revolve around me?

The company that you keep is what has a big influence on how your life will turn out. This includes friends and family.

It’s as simple as this, if you keep good company then you will become an amazing human being and live a great life. If you keep bad company then the chances are that you will put yourself in a mess and waste your life away.

In order to help improve our lives, we have to help improve others.

If your already helping others out then it’s quite clear that your not only caring about yourself.

I mean when starting a business isn’t the first thing that comes to mind is, ‘how can this product benefit customers?’

If not and your just thinking about the money, then i’m afraid you are set up for failure.

What only caring about yourself can lead to

Loss of respect:  We may think that losing respect of others isn’t a big deal if we only care about ourselves. This will have a huge impact psychologically. People will tend to ignore you and not treat you as a normal person which will leave you feeling left out. In many cases this has lead to people suffering from depression.

I know this because I have been in that situation and I have had friends that also have. I can tell you this, it is not pretty.

Loss of trust:  Losing trust from friends and family is something you wouldn’t want to go through. As well as losing trust, you will lose the support of others. Again this will make you feel left out and you will end up making stupid decisions in life.

Not feeling equal: It sucks but one wrong move and you will never be looked at the same again. People will naturally see you as a different person. It isn’t pleasant when people look at you in disgust and hate.

Not successful in life: Thinking about yourself will not help you in the long run. As I mentioned before about losing trust is a dangerous thing. You tend to make selfish decisions.  Having no support or respect from people can mentally put you off track. Not having the right mindset will make it difficult to be successful and reach your goals.

The benefits of thinking of others

Let’s make this a bit more positive!

Being loved as a person: We love the attention. Wouldn’t you want to live life being treated as a special person? I certainly do. This will help you make the right decisions in life because you will have the support of others.

Feeling good about yourself: Feeling proud of yourself can have a positive impact on your life. This will change the way you approach life, being confident and motivated to improve as a person will help you become successful.

Getting support: Ever heard of the phrase “you get what you give”? It feels amazing to get help from others even when your not expecting it. Use that as motivation to help others, think of them as being you.

Thinking about yourself won’t get you far in life. Whatever goals you have in mind will almost feel impossible to achieve. The reason being is because we only think of doing things that are best suited to us and that will make things worse, especially when your running a business!

I’m not saying that we shouldn’t care about ourselves at all. We have to care about our own well being as well.

But when it comes to doing things that you know will only benefit you and not others then you will have to question it before doing so.

The reason why you have to question it is because there may be a chance of you hurting friends or family in the process.

That’s not the road you want to go down because imagine how shit life would be without people and being on your own.

Being on your own  will make it extremely hard for you to become successful.

Help make this world be a better place for yourself and  others around you!

Have an awesome day guys…Peace! 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

I can’t afford to move out of my parents house

Stuck in a house that you want to move out of?

Having to live with your parents because you are struggling financially is very common. I have the same problem… trying to save up but have to help contribute towards the bills makes it that much harder and is very frustrating.

What if I told you that there is a way to have a second income from starting your own online business. If your thinking that this is not going to work because you have no money to spare then your wrong. This can work because you can start this without spending any money.

I have already mentioned in my previous blogs on how you can make money online by spending little or no money at all. There is a blog in particular that I would like to point out.

“what business can i do from home”

After reading this you would now be on the right track and have a few ideas in hand. There are so many options so you could choose what would be best for you.

These blogs will  have helped you learn about the different strategies and the benefits of those strategies.

There will be some advice on what to focus on in particular with each of these strategies and also be able to understand how and why it works.

All of these can be done from home, you just need your laptop and wifi. It is possible to work whenever you please and for how long you want.

Just working an hour or 2 a day can be  so effective you can make sales and get results.

The key thing to focus on is the customers. I mention this quite often but it is all about the relationship you have between you and the customer. Once you build trust then you will be successful.

When it comes to marketing, you don’t have to think outside the box. If you just focus on yourself and imagine you being the customer then you will know how it needs to be done.

There is always a solution to a problem. I get why people would want to move out of their parents home. Wanting to be independent, being restricted because of the rules you have to follow, having a partner that is constantly telling you that we need to move out… the list goes on.

Once you are successful with your online business you will have a different mindset and that will change your ways of thinking. You can use this to your advantage in terms of living a better life.

Feel free to subscribe and watch this free workshop series. This will give you more information on how you can make money online.

What do i want to change about myself?

What is it that is stopping you from being the best version of you? It is time to get negative energy out of your life.

Wouldn’t you want to wake up every morning feeling excited? You can achieve anything when you have the right mindset. Remember the mind is the most powerful source as it is what guides us through our journey.

Having the right mindset is the key to success and is what helps you reach your goals.

Your mind is what will allow you to make changes and improve your life.

The advantages of having the right mindset

Being able to believe in yourself: This is very powerful as you will be able to achieve things that you thought were impossible. This will give you great confidence when trying new things.

Motivation and dedication: You are more likely to stay motivated and dedicated and that means that it is highly unlikely for you to give up halfway. It is usually the difficult tasks that are quite easy to give up on. E.g trying to make things work in a difficult relationship.  If you never give up I can promise you that you will see change and things will improve!

Getting rid of bad habits: Having an addiction to substances that are bad for your health just isn’t worth it. We clearly are hurting inside when we would rather not be sober, but when you become sober you are back to reality.

It is not worth harming yourself and wasting your life away when you can make things better. You know you are loving life when you don’t need to be “high” to have pleasure. When your mind is set in the right place then you will naturally stop and will be able to get out of these bad habits.

How to get on track

Kind of a weird phrase but i’ll say it anyway… “Put your mind where your heart is”

It’s always about how bad you want it, how bad you want this change. Use that as motivation to succeed. By not making a change you are creating your own misery. You don’t deserve that. Everyone deserves to live the best life possible and only you can make that happen.

If you are just not happy with life and are just not sure about what needs changing then i’d say to make a list of 5 things that you are not happy about. Rate them from 1 to 5 and 1 being the worst. Once you have done that, think of ways you can overturn this.

By you making a change, you will become an inspiration to others and help improve lives of those in need. The way I see it is that we live on this earth as one which means we should have each others back.

 

Have a great day guys…Peace! 🙂
