It's not a good feeling when you're stuck in the same place without much progress going in the direction you want. Sometimes I have to remind myself that eventually I will make it, it's just going to take focus and some smart investing skills to get there. I know once it starts adding up and I can see it's really making a difference I will feel better about everything. Along the way I try to have some small victories and try to consume healthy food items. Maybe this will aid in getting me in a better, more clear state of mind. I try to stay positive but with failure after failure, sometimes it takes a toll on me.
Today I was feeling down and grabbed a glass of orange juice. I felt better and now I am just trying to keep that positive mindset there. I have this kind of feeling that eats me up when I start thinking about how bad I want to have enough money so I do not have to work. With only 1-2 reads a day on Vocal, it's not really the success I'd like to be having. I do about $250 per month from my sources outside my minimum wage job. But this is not quite the amount I need in order to be able to leave my job. My monthly bills are about 800-900 per month, and every time I think about the amount I need to live off interest, it stresses me out.
The reason I'm deciding to go back to school to study accounting and payroll administration is because I took a few hours to search what I would enjoy doing at work on the internet. All of the quizzes directed me towards finance. Even if I don't like it, I'm not really satisfied with my current job as a sub maker anyway. So it's like taking a pay raise for something I don't like but will probably be good at. Everything I've done I seem to excel at, from sports to jobs to education. The one I'm having trouble with is making enough income to live off of passively. It's a challenge most people choose to not even tackle. I see people who do it and seem so happy. I know it is supposed to be challenging and I'm up for a fight, so passive income better hit pretty hard because I'm going to keep fighting for it.
When I manage to graduate from my program I hope to get a 40-50 thousand a year job. This will cut the time way down it will take to get to my passive income goal. Who knows, maybe this time next year I'll be writing about how my goal is within reaching distance. Note to myself, get your education and get control of yourself, you will be able to get where you want to be if you use intelligence. Your education will greatly decrease the time it takes to get to your goal. So do it and never look back. Keep pushing forward, never give up, keep your head up, and don't let anyone tell you your dreams are out of reach. Try to understand that if you take the time to strengthen the value you bring to companies, the more rewards you will gain. It's not about living an easy life, I want you to see you can achieve this because it's not easy coming where you come from. I know I don't want to drive a Lamborghini or have a mansion, I know that I want stability. I don't want to be forty and my boss tells me they're letting me go and my world crumbles.
Having the mindset of a winner is what iIm after. To achieve the feeling that no matter what I will be okay. A roof over my head and food in my belly for life. I love the feeling of knowing I'm paid, I've got cash. I think you have to really understand my past before you think I'm just money hungry. My mother was a single parent and was always at work. The days that stuck out most in my mind were when she didn't have enough money to pay rent or bills. We didn't have a car until I was in eighth grade. And the ones we did have broke down on the side of the road and we would walk the rest of the way. So this isn't just for me, this for all the people who say it can't be done. This is for the ones who struggle and read my stories and see something greater for themselves. I will leave a link for some of my other posts where you can begin earning at least $130 and potentially $250 every month. Here is link 1 and here is link 2.
I am confident if you're reading this these will be the steps you need to get your feet back on the ground. Whether you're a single mother or a kid like me who had one outfit as a kid, these will be able to at least get you something to eat for the month. Thank you so much for reading this post and I will continue to bring more opportunities so check back every now and again to see what I'm up to.
