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.
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.
