How to start from the bottom up

Maybe I have talked about my hustle in other articles but here is dedicated to just that’s and the mindset, work ethic, and more. There will be no particular order in this advice and lesson’s. The goal of today’s piece like “Steve Jobs” is to help you think differently. There was a speech by the man himself saying dogma were man-made that’s doesn’t mean we should keep following them so I will share the way I move so far to reach my financial freedom and I will be honest it’s not easy.

Don’t be a consumer ,be a saver and an investor

My first job was Toyota and I worked there for 2 and half years and its was enough for me to start building my own cash cow, which was rental rooms. My retrenchment came at the right time while I was thinking of buying the car the following year and thanks god because I already had my driver’s license then around 2017 ,I have drove once or twice ever since and I don’t mind cause I know if I love a car I will have to break my own.

My living strategy was saving and then I had no much commitment and my girlfriend was out of high school she was perfect for me I was stingy probably still am.

By the time I left a job I had around 250k plus 50k from provident fund so I still had to figure out my move of how I will save this money, life was good then no stress up until I started building rental rooms.

Be ready to fail big and consistently

Loss and failure is the name of the game, but I don’t want to make it sound lightly this is where people give up and to be honest I don’t blame them but giving up completely is a bad call.

Here is what’s I did during working building my rooms, I listened to financial education on YouTube and listened to business people there and I read books a lot and tried to emulate their work ethic and by the time the black sworn come I was prepared mentally like the book unfuck yourself by Gary bishop, its re-enforce what’s I already know in business if things are going to well something bad is really coming and you didn’t attract it its just laws of nature.

Although Bob Procter seems to disagree so that’s pessimists will stop being negative about starting something new, that some businesses do succeed without major failure or it’s not true that’s people get broke at 30 it’s just what’s pessimist pay attention to and there is always the good and bad side, for you to succeed you need to try to look at the former.

Something terrible happened and rooms were closed and there was no source of income at least one but it was not even close to what’s rooms pay me, that 2018 and stress took a couple of days and couldn’t sleep and ended up keeping my distance from that’s building and look at it objectively not as my retirement fund.

The risky come back

Its 2020 and that’s like now and my rooms are back and things seems to be going well but there is a lot at stake you guys can pray for me to be able to fix all that’s needs fixing before I run into the dip of failure again.

My successful grandfather who supports me in my hustle and who I support a bit in his gave me strength during the first disaster and told me not to sell and I listened and now I’m back and this year he loaned me 40k to down payment another property and I’m very grateful about that’s.

This will be my third small rooms and more cash flow and few debts that I will settle by the end of the year now more risks, am I scared a little do I get stressed now and then yes a lot like when buying a new house there is a lot that’s can go wrong and I tried reaching out to elders and turns out there is no one I’m on my own and I have got used to that.

Your dreams and your better future is your and entrepreneurs or business-minded people are not in a luxury of living a risk-free life because there is none anyway, people who are not investing in the better future of their livelihood are preparing themselves for unmanageable catastrophes and be not one of those people and take control and charge of your life.

Sacrifices

My DNA like Gary Vee usually says doesn’t feel my sacrifices as something I deny myself to do or enjoy is just part of how real life is supposed to be. The problem is school and in church, we are not taught to delay gratification although bible touches on Jesus being a sacrifice the main challenge with Christ deed he left his people free ride in religion and according to hustle without sacrifice, there are no fruits and worse if the bible says there is already someone who has sacrificed himself for your sins, chances are you will keep sinning knowing you will be cleansed in altar every Sunday.

The starting from the bottom is not like that’s in that respect, you have to be in harm’s way and be willing to get burned for your life dream ever since I was in high school I had a picture of the life I want and to be honest is was more like of other people but sooner.

Now tables have turned with new insight and growing I have new plans and no rush of settling down cause I know that’s might slow me down, the hunger, drive, and unforced discipline is still part of my life enjoyment like writing this I had to be in another zone and most people cannot do that.

I have sacrificed most of my normal senses and developed new ones, for example, I’m no longer used to laugh out loud, I try to not be tense and be easy to talk to yet I know if I am in a working environment I’m very strict and pushy and it’s very awkward and the paranoid is keeping my eyes open all the time no matter the setting I’m in, I feel the tension and correct myself quickly if I get out of line and I spend most time alone few likeminded people here and hanging out with them cause us to talk more than do but we motivate each other and know we on the right track.

This is a quarter of my story

Having a thick book is not a easy task, having a book at all is a huge achievement cause people will benefits from your existence. By clipping my life here I’m portraying a picture things might be going well for you, have a job and a family and business you saved it for later and I agree not all people should do the same thing.

But being in control of your future and your time and how you spend it and opening your eyes with good books and really see the depth of life, but writing this I wish you to be curious and learn more do more and with your leisure time listen to audio books and biographies of successful people.

Look you may be a millionaire in your own right and knowing money when you have it you don’t change that’s much, yes you effort quality things even your skin is moisturized but still, your mindset is your and humility, love or hate of other people is still there.

Less than 3 million seems like you have something but by your standards you know you can have more and the tricky part is how you measure that’s worth if it’s liquid cash you might consider better investment tools or if it’s fixed in one property or maybe is in your personal assets than you are not rich but I’m sure you know this by now.

For those who are at the bottom and want to go up, here is one advice: avoid doing what’s many people do and follow what’s rich people do by listening to their advice and looking at how they handle themselves and lastly help the rich to get started cause if you help the poor at this stage they will drag you down with them. Go up and share wisdom and anyway you can help but don’t get swayed easily.

The real challenge is starting, when you in you can focus and get things done and a point across. Thank you for coming over and really use your curiosity for good cause there are lot of titles online and they’re no good hope I’m not one of those. I know I’m not the amusing type but please keep this Blog nearby or bookmark it my live journey will be printed here as well as our music hustle as LnM, Aka ULwaz No Makhula please like the page aside for the fun of it.

Why Social Media is a striving business and what’s does this mean to you

See the reason’s why you can do it ,not why you can’t

Clearly we as human race we have become a products of internet companies like Facebook and twitter and this is not going to change anytime soon. Because this applications are addictive and build with a help of professionals who have degrees in human nature has got us hooked. Building a business based on this platform is a real risk although worth taking but in a long run you not in control of your business future if this social Medias change their algorithms so you are at their mercy. I experienced this personally while pushing my music links on Facebook and they constantly block my posts thinking I am a spam or just stopping me on my tracks because when I do it organic they don’t get anything except me driving their audience to the websites where I put my music and they don’t want that’s.

Age is not a handicap to not reaching your goals

Because we can advertise on them

Google is an incredible tool , YouTube too ,Vk Facebook and twitter and not to mention Messaging apps like What’s app , Telegram , viper and many more the problem is we get distracted every moment we try to focus in an important things in life and under deliver compare to our potential. The more we stay online the more ads are portrayed in front of us by companies and our favorite’scelebrities and thus effect our spending decision.

The problem with this is when we get on social media we normally want to socialize and have fun and engage with people we know and don’t know. Others come to seek dates and if we wanted to buy something we would’ve gone to Alabama or amazon apps but as human being marketing makes us realize things we might want but not actually need.

Early this morning I was on twitter and I saw a guy posting a car and that’s wasn’t even an ad but seeing comments and how he got attention makes me think of having a car myself so of Couse this platforms will strive even if they bring the worst in us, envious and jealousy .The goal of this article is for us to reduce social media usage and realize it’s not a just time costs it’s also a bad habit if it doesn’t affect your bottom line positively.

It’s a risky bet

Marketing is now starting to be seen like a social media job but that’s cannot be far from the truth. But marketing and distribution are independent industry apart from what’s is happening in the internet it’s just another feature. So trying to be a DYI and promote everything you are doing on the internet is not effective especially on social media.

The outside world is still a good marketing platform also depending on your product and service. Other thing is when you try to do an internet based business you may lack a skill of a sales person which is also required here ,the handling of objections ,follow ups and closing your clients and disadvantages here people have all the time to look at your offer objectively or logically unless what’s you are serving is a need or essential like food and transport which have its own apps now and you don’t need to be in social networks to get it.

As you promote your business in this platforms ,you making this platforms more profitable and that’s is fine if you do it intentionally like boosting your ad or page other than drifting on groups and being blocked now and again.

You are a product to social media

Social media has lost its value as it did when we started using it back in 2009 and new ones like Tiktok you should be careful getting hooked on them the usage is expensive because its requires video and audio data. We are no longer getting the endorphins we use to get and like aluxer confirms it’s now just a bad habit we have and we might need to crush it once and for all and get back to our old ways more and socialize better apart from pandemics messing with us.

Realizing you are being volunteer used by this companies should be a wakeup call and check where you are lacking because of it and see actions that’s you take because of it. This messes with your phycology and its influences how you deal with people because you do things that’s you wouldn’t do in person unless you are a socio path.

Spread of information and wrong myths

Covid 19 has to have trusted sources of information from the bunch because people were saying whatever about this pandemic and really lying to one another. Social media has become some source of information. The Qoura and Pinterest as well as Tumbler is strictly for interesting information and adding LinkedIn offers jobs and talk about business and important skills like sales and so on.

But this platforms hasn’t made our lives easier the only thing I see are premiums to be in a certain position or bombarded by a lot of information that’s doesn’t collate to the real world and in disorganized manner we end up reading books online without us being aware and reading things that’s doesn’t impact our lives at all. If you could start reading a book with the time you spend online you can have a breakthrough in a certain place in your life or listen to an audiobook.

Myth and beliefs are being spread here and we end up reading peoples mindset as well, because when people type something becomes the reflection of who we think they are. We don’t think the post is calculated or represent something else ,that’s why other people have fake accounts and attack other people and others have alter egos and spend their days promoting that’s and wonder why they don’t reach their goals and forget they spend most of their mental effort on being something they’re not .

If you are in that’s trap you can do something about it. Meditate on this article and try to ground yourself in internet usage and really come back to the real world. You will find yourself being productive and thus see the ROT (return on time) and eventually ROI (return on investment)

Its means you need a gateway times from social media and engage in a real world

I was listening to Ready Player one audio book which I enjoy , it’s a gick tech guy acting in a future 2041 where the AI is a thing and its shows the amplified life of social media where people will spend their lives as parallel people having an online avatar which is a representation of yourself .

who has money and most of things that’s ordinary person can have but the difference online life will be a game but like social media now ads will still be a part of a culture and well as influencers and brand ambassadors will be there. With that’s said its means being online by then will also be lucrative because points people will be getting online could be converted to real life like bitcon.

You could be rich online as an avatar and be poor in a real world. So this means for this generation we may embrace part of internet and its perks but we need to be weary of everything around it. Position yourself on social media to be not a narcissist that’s won’t help you in anyway and try to live a life with a meaning and teach your kids basics and you going to leave them in a different world but the principles won’t change and values you would’vetaught them will be everything.

To you it’s also mean’s stop checking social proof and being narcissist and a pure consumer

Avoid looking what’s everybody is doing and cultivate your own ways ,because if something is done by everyone its means it’s easy and most of the time not worth it now and in the long run and that’s social proof and I have talked about it in another article.

Your pride lead you to want to splurge on social media and show people you don’t know how good you are doing. Sometimes this may come from a place of void and incompleteness from your accomplishment and want unnecessary attention and social media can offer that’s. Think before you do, make that’s your mantra I don’t know how many posts I didn’t post because I started by thinking how what’s I want to say is going to make sense to other person.

I know a friend who quite Facebook and for him it was a good move because he was a pure consumer, he realized he wasn’t like other people and didn’t like to brag about himself or comment so he was just consuming every unnecessary data that’s came across his feed, so he decided to stop.

Other go online to laugh and have fun and others are browsing and other seek sexual content whatever your reasons do it intentionally and don t be a consumer because its might not be a valuable way to spend your time unless you have joined the right motivational groups or aligned with your real life industry.

Thanks for reading todays article and I want to say, this are big companies and they can sue me for attacking them but disclaimer is in place this view are mine and not in attack to this companies but as a user it’s how I feel and somehow complaining because I have been blocked because I was pushing my music while other’s posts dangerous sexual content and get away with it.

I may sound like bragging and being a naysayer I’m just sharing to my followers that’s we can have a better life even if we are not attached to social media.
