Live In The Now

Live In The Moment

Have you ever wondered and found yourself drifting in the past or floating in the future?

If that is always the case, then I'll tell you that you are wasting your time.

I'm not telling that dreaming about something or remembering the past is bad and not a good thing to do. It is okay to do it sometimes but do not make it a habit.

What important is today, the present. I remember a quotation I heard from Kung Fu Panda movie (part 1):

"You are too concerned about what was and what will be. There is a saying: yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present."

Actions Always Prove Why Words Mean Nothing

Sometimes doing a thing is better than saying what things you need to do.

You talk about this and that but the problem is it usually ends there. You do not start anything or implement what you are intended to do.

Actions beat words esp. in starting or managing a business. But I'm not saying that words are not important. It should work hand in hand with actions. But only words will leave you unproductive and people will start considering you as a man of just only words.

Do What Most People Do Not Want To Do

If You Want The Freedom That Most People Will Never Have, You Have To Do What Most People Are Not Willing To Do.

The reason why I always do and oppose the usually accepted thing or norm belief of the people around us is because I want to achieve something that I want.

I want a total freedom.

Time Freedom, Money Freedom, and Location Freedom.

I want Time Freedom because I don't want to restrict most of my time doing things I hate in a four-cornered room. I want to have a complete control over my time and enjoy it while I'm young.

Money Freedom as when you trade your time for money, it means it is limited due to every one of us has 24 hours a day. So if I want to scale my income, I should find ways on how to leverage other peoples' time and effort in a good way.

Don't Look Outside, Look Inside

I learned that if you're planning and looking on what kind of business to start in, then don't look outside and be hard on yourself, but look inside.

What I mean by this is don't imitate what others are doing just because that business is in or is doing well because chances are it will not work to you or you lose interest on it as time goes by.

Look at your skill sets and choose one among those that you really love doing and profitable. Meaning even if you're not being paid to do it, you wake up every day and do it anyway. You will not treat it as a work or job because you love what you are doing. But I warn you that you should treat it as a business. Be serious in achieving your goals at the same time enjoy every moment.

Did You Start Your 52-Week Money Challenge?

Early of this year (January 2017), I stumbled upon this weird challenge, the 52-week money challenge.

The first time I got introduced to it, I became confused because I couldn't understand how it worked.

Anyway, the idea of saving money from your salary or business weekly is a good idea but the challenge is you will add the original amount of money to the previous week's money every week.
