Life with purpose is worth living

Today I I’m a position in my life, where I don’t have any qualifications that’s could help me get a reasonable paying job thus I’m not excited looking for a job. I did study radio production and finished it but I wasn’t planning to use that’s skill anytime soon, I did apply in the nearest radio station but no feedback and yet I know I will do this job as a hobby one day.

 The only way I have discovered meaning in my life is by continuous learning and self-education, financial education, and discipline and before I woke up I already learned something new but before I go into deep let me put this in point form so it will have a better context.

Have first source of income that’s doesn’t require your time.

Before telling the story above I did got a job as a welder and saved all the money to create one source of income and this doesn’t require great intellect only commitment to see it through.

I have set myself free from financial trap and now I’m busy learning and planning and drafting my future ,although its took me a while to have a written goals that’s I kept going back to but I always have important things in the back of my mind and eventually see them through. It hard to think or learn if your focus is on your 9-5, after it you don’t try to outgrow your yesterday self.

Once money is not your core problem then it’s coming to you every month or day, then you can start and plan your future of cause you can do it after work and sleep a bit late because the bills are already there maybe the child or two as well. What’s I will do on that’s case my kids will have to grow quickly so they can help me build their better future.

Be humble in a pursuit of your life purpose

My grandfather a successful business man is so humble and has humility to put himself in the shoes of the struggling people when he speaks and for that’s I respected him more.

For me I was a bit arrogant seeing my things working out while others were struggling to make ends meet ,but after couple of failures I realized life is unpredictable if I don’t strengthen my weapon (Mind) and mind my own business ,I might end up like people who are struggling and all of my hustle will be history.

I have received a better explanation from YouTube on success TV that’s being successful is not having millions in a bank, although that’s can be important to other people it doesn’t means that’s what important to you as well. If you have passion like music you know your life purpose is around to one day performs for thousands of people and have your song on radio around the world.

If you just got married you also know your next important life purpose is having kids and take care of one another. If you want to have money and experience different kinds of things in life you might want to start a business and endure what’s to come or study to get a lucrative job.

 Here is what’s I have realized if I was not in some place someday and got introduced to a certain thing I will still be alive and oblivious of, but here is another catch there are a lot of things you should treat it that’s way even if they have been presented to you, especially if you have figured out your life purpose you can tell they don’t align then dismiss them.

Everyone knows the world is noisy and Corona made it worse before this pandemic I was oblivious of what’s was happening in the world because it had nothing to do with my long term or short term goals and that’s not being not humble or curious about what’s happening in the world “No” but because I’m still focusing on my money and how to get more of it and I cannot let news’s or daily 30 minutes show distract me. With my leisure time I study learns and listens to productive stuff.

Waking up and happiness will be linked to your life purpose

Other people have got used to waking up early because of the habit their jobs give them although they have to snooze an alarm once or twice, the day you wake up consistently fired up to do something is the days you would’ve realized your life meaning.

This doesn’t mean it won’t get hard but if you can endure hardship on that’s a thing and come to the other side better than you will have a life worth living. You may be a boss of a company that’s won’t mean you will always be nice to your workers, it’s part of your job to be mean and do all the pep talk but apart from that’s you shouldn’t be a hard head outside of that environment.

For example is never a perfect idea to work for your family member because you take discipline talk to heart and you may need special treatment which is not called for, unless he was there in the beginning and you understand one another traits.

It’s take me a serious move for me to loosen up or enjoy a milestone because I have been through so much even in the love department I don’t get too excited too early no one is perfect and small thing usually rub people the wrong way. And sometimes a person get into bed with you for different interior motives and by the time you find that’s you get blown in a heart and loose all the momentum, this applies in business with our partners changing a direction after a year or 5 years after.

In short part of your happiness should rely purely on you not anybody else, not even your child because we may try to saw a good seed to them but we don’t really know how they will turn out.

If the title is good, the content is probably is too

It’s true we judge a book by its cover, and we judge people that’s way too. But I want to add to you reading this, in most cases there are reasons people look the way they do and if you can get to the bottom of that you can find the whole thinking of someone.

This also mean find the person looks, dress and smell good on the outside, what about the place he lives in? Does he or she reads  ,if not where does he get his ideas about life and the most important thing do you want to be acquaintance with this person?

I’m 29 years old now and I don’t feel that’s age and I cannot associate it with my 23 years old me ,except the way my mind has grown from past 3 years I have started investing on myself by learning ,here is where I’m going with this I still have friends I met while I was in high school and they are not growing that much ,some do but the important values I appreciate in a person are not there and we are slowly diverging and I cannot stop this process no matter how much I like them since we are losing common ground hanging out is a bad call and I’m making sure for now I’m not encouraging the connection again since other’s are changing for the worse and they know it.

Contrarily to the subtitle some people work hard on their out appearance than the necessary tools they possess in their heads so be careful, others are fake and sometimes I feel like fact when I’m around big fishes but I know I’m dedicated because if Jim Rohn could come now and ask me to show him my financial goals,I will pass that’s test or ask for my schedule or ask to spend a day with me I will not get a total but I won’t be a total disaster either.

What’s makes your life worth living

I have imposed my beliefs in you and you have bought it into a certain extend and thank I’m honored to influence you where ever you are, would you do me an honor to return a favor. Comment below and let me learn about your philosophies and see if I can’t grow from them.

Right now is the anxiety for me, I really don’t know what’s next I have variables I can control and some I can’t so not knowing what’s next makes my life interesting cause this month I received 40k and a girlfriend last month if I said I knew this things will happen I would have been lying but for this to happen I had to position myself, go out and make small talk and present my case and I don’t do this for a living it’s just what’s happened.

For most people anxiety is a bad thing because they focus more on the negative bad things that’s might happen next ,I challenge you to anticipate that’s less and get on with your business expecting bigger and better returns. Writing this blogs is something I do because I have a lot of time in my hands and that’s really nice,I have things that’s I need to do but they’re not that demanding or actually my responsibility ,I do feel some kind of guilt when I work below my potential but still I will never know my full one I have to start where I am and move up.

The paranoia and always being aware and the new ability I have to talk sense, you wouldn’t believe this but I once found myself failing to talk well with people or filter myself my thought then usually comes out as they are and my friends told me and I kept getting better and have learnt to keep my mouth shut not in a awkward way but listen more.

In closing I’m no longer scared of people this was a serious realization that’s stopped many people from pursuing their life purposes, how did I do it I simply kept learning and reading a book and got confident that every time I’m around people I probably know something they don’t know which is important so there is no reason to be scared of anyone, a doctor, nurse, police, lawyer or anyone in a position of power I tend to be cool with them and actually be curious about their profession and then we will get the ball rolling.

Thank you for spending time with me today, if last year this time I knew I will be writing and sharing information I‘ll probably picture myself doing this but it’s started from an article for ULwaz No Makhula music artists and the YouTube channels I follow the most kept saying they started on Blogs and actually recommended it and it got clear since I have a background in writing scripts for radio why can’t I build a powerful community that can benefit from my insights and knowledge as well as life experience. Here we are now part of us and follow us to not miss anything we do here, YouTube is possible in the near future and you don’t want to miss that’s too.

Why self discipline is so hard

Today’s article is inspired by my own procrastination ,its Friday today and my post is late by 3hrs .There is no excuses for not delivering in time it’s all based on the lack of myself discipline ,because I’m going through this right now I can easily see the challenges causing it.

  1. Laziness and excuse artists

Hard important things are not easy to do, the easy things to do you do them without thinking and the things that’s you have habit of doing comes easy. But new one’s like writing this blogs earlier on its easy and exciting but as I keep going enthusiasm get low and the only thing that’s can keep me of float is myself discipline.

Being lazy is common drag and waste time doing shinny things or things that’s won’t have any results. I have had time today to be in a place of physical work and its easy to see things that’s will make a huge impact there but one guy was busy cutting corners in a serious job you need to discipline yourself to avoid doing too much housekeeping and less productive work cause your supervisor will notice you and make sure you are the 1st to go when times are hard.

Excuses are the killer of self discipline that’s why they are negatively affective, if you don’t do something important and have a reason why you don’t do it then you are safe. But in reality you will be legging behind and excuses never shows up when it’s time to show some productivity and time keeps spinning.

So what’s you need to do every time you find a reason to do something, just do it or do nothing and see what’s will happen. Here is an example you have a task that’s you need to do and you are craving TV series rather than choosing the latter ,decide to do nothing if you get bored do the important task then after that’s it will open the window after you have finished it to actually enjoy the series.

2. Its require endurance and a goodwill

Watching a TV series produced by 50 cent called For Life, the starring shows a serious courage from being a convict to becoming a lawyer since he was arrested for the thing he didn’t do. He endured and disciplined himself to read hard law books and  started appealing to court and helping other inmates like him ,while he is trying to get the files of his own case and people behind this scandal haven’t give up and they suppress all his efforts but he doesn’t give up.

That’s discipline on steroids maybe there are no consequences of not doing what you supposes to do but trust me there are always those underneath but maybe it’s not like the above story where all odds seems to be against you.

Life on its own is hard add something that’s you suppose to do everyday then its way harder. Employers have to constantly motivate their workers to love and see value in their work and after few year add a little drip but worker still finds reason’s to strike and do all sorts of inefficiency they can get its end up being a habit that’s people needs pep talk and the problem starts when a person try to start his or her own business and have to motivate himself and his worker’s.

So self discipline is hard but the reason for that’s is we don’t know that there is such thing, our why’s are lame the strong one’s are through nature like having a kid now imagine hustling for your child and focusing on bettering his life and end up forgetting about yours and not knowing how your child will turn out is a real mystery that’s why the discipline should come from within and your north star be your better self.

3. Its needs giving up the good stuff

Delaying gratification is a normal thing for people who are successful and those who are going to be .It’s hard to not eat your favorite food so you can stay on shape, it’s hard to save more than 10% so you can achieve your financial goals earlier, it’s hard to maintain the relationship schedule to make your love life work on your busy life but that’s what’s you need to do to get all of the above right.

Person who is going to make it in what’s ever he or she is doing avoids distractions, also avoids shinny things and trends and most importantly don’t try to impress other people they know what’s their doing is more important to their lives than a friend opinion.

Showing up is what’s its takes to start going in a right direction, the physical work I’m talking about since I work for myself I have a tendency of showing up whenever I like but I do what’s I can when I get there, I can try to do more and wake up early but I believe in effectiveness and lie to myself that’s I’m using the 80/20 rule. I know I can come early and leave late and fool around all the time or just come at 10 and work hard for 3 hours then leave until I reach my target.

4. No one or few people practice it.

Worker’s constantly come late at work be different, at church no one likes to start a song be different, in class no one likes to give the teacher the answer be different, no one wants to play midfielder take that’s position and master it. In most cases you can be the opposite of what’s most people are doing and do what’s they hate and win in life that’s all it takes.

Don’t be scared of other people actually build a system for yourself to not be scared of people ,my uncle is better at this I know him he was a cop and people became his friends. He’s famous and can get along with anyone his discipline to master that’s skill and ability to make a small talk has became handy in his own life, he was an investigator and people were open to him a shared what’s they knew, maybe you may argue that’s he learnt this at police academy but I may respond the discipline to apply those tools is what’s important.

I learn the people’s skill by practicing it and once I move away from people for the long period of time I found myself beginning to be an introvert which is not a good trait for person who is ambitious like me.

5. The audience  put some pressure

I will start by saying show people you’re positive traits as soon as you can, you hard working ethics and more. Show that’s side of you so it won’t be like you are changing all of the sudden, or you will have spectator’s that’s won’t do you any good.

The remarks and gossips and who said what’s about you ,why you are working so hard and so on try to be in a space where this is not too much. You need it to guide you but if it all you get then you are bound to be stopped in your tracks. People you need are those who are engaged like you in something this are winner’s .ever since I started something most business people has gave me courage and great influence and positivity.

One said you charging too low ,other said I see you one day having a million rand and that’s really caught me off guard but it’s meant a lot and I’m positive I will get there and I’m working towards it so hard and the understanding I have is there are conventional ways of doing things and there are really business savvy ways all hard work but require self discipline.

Thanks for catching up with us, LnM we are nothing without you keep grooming yourself and win. I don’t consider myself a motivation talker or something like that’s .i am a practical person and sometimes when I give an advice people don’t take it because its requires self discipline like the other day my little brother who stays with my father said he wants’ 4k so he can trade  but he don’t have it.

I told him to save and skip his birthday celebration this year and on December forget about new clothes because all this require discipline he came back and suggested what’s if he sells his laptop?

I figure I don’t have to answer that it’s what’s app and nothing he can see anyway. So if you ask a person an advice be sure you really needs it and respect that person enough to argue and tell why this advice won’t work for you than going to look for another crazy plan and present it to him/ her. If you knew what’s you were going to do why bother other people?
