Life is moving, things are changing, drama comes up, problems occur, and bullshit happens. What is this, I guess we call it life right? Money problems, bitching, and the occasional stir of “What the fuck do I do? Where should I go?” So many people bitch, so many people complain about their problems, depression, anxiety, not having motivation. Surprisingly, about 100% of these people have excuses to back up their problems. Everyone finds a way to justify themselves with bullshit excuses. I have a friend whom I’ll quote from, whom he quoted from a movie I believe, but it’s a good quote.
“we must remember that all these things, the nuances, the anomalies, the subtleties, which we assume only accessorize our days, are effective for a much larger and nobler cause. They are here to save our lives.”
You know what else I have come to learn and notice? People who constantly tell themselves no, or I can’t do it. Or the many other excuses people have for themselves such as “I don’t have the money, I’m not rich like you, I don’t have the time, etc…” You know those lines are a series of gun shots in your cerebellum (I believe that’s a part of your brain). People who consistently doubt themselves like that are not only shooting themselves, but trapping their creative freedom of believing, and figuring out a way to dig themselves out of their problems. People who call themselves poor, and complain are only digging themselves deeper, because they ACCEPT the fact that they are poor losers with no lives who can’t help themselves, and just complain. I remember a day when I was broke, I was the opposite of what I am typing right now. I dreamed of being rich, wished it, wanted it, and pretended I had money when I didn’t.
I don’t want to get in depth about me right now, but if I had better financial literacy, I would have been drinking pina coladas in Egypt… ? Eh. Anyways. It’s not the lack of education I didn’t receive in high school, that has nothing to do with it. School is important yes, but not that important. If one can’t learn to manage their money and learn the differences between liabilities and assets, anyone could be come rich with motivation. Quick question for you, if you read this whole thing, answer this question in a comment. Is your house (if you were to buy one or have one now) an asset or liability?
I decided to invest my time in some good books over the last few weeks, and have come across some amazing new ideas. Seriously. If there is one thing I love to do, it’s sitting and reading. For anyone out there who is struggling, you need to stop working for money, and make money work for you. Okay, we all need to work for money right now to make some money. But we need to learn how to make money work for us. Every wealthy person you and I know, I can guarantee that money is working for them. Do you think they are working 9-5 jobs, sitting in cubicles, or being the bitch running errands, OR do you think they have investments, or companies making money for them? So what, ya they manage their own companies and investments, but they ain’t scrubbin the toilets! I mean seriously, that’s what I do, I have websites that make me money, and all I do is manage them now.
If you want to change your life, you need to do it, and stop complaining people. Only one person can do it, and that person is you. You need to help yourself, and stop dicking around. You won’t get rich by clubbing every night, smoking buddah, and fucking off every day. Make money work for you.
PS. Youtube “Anthony Robbins,” and buy the book “Rich Dad Poor Dad.” Those two things should be enough to change your life. If you have time, and need some basic financial help, read the book “The Richest Man in Babylon.”
