Life Mission - Anticipating Success

I want to do work that I love.  I love to inspire people to get their finances in order and organize their lives in a way that is meaningful for them.  I hear this a lot and most people don't follow their dreams but I believe that the mind and willpower are incredible tools that cannot be explained by scientific evidence.  The more I hear that I cannot accomplish something is the drive that gives me the notion that I can.  I want my life to be inspiring through my actions.

I have 3 amazing children to raise and I know that through example is the best way to show them that they are capable of anything they work for.  The good things are worth fighting for and working for and that is the number one value I want my children to learn.  Everyday I want to be a part of my life mission which includes only doing things that I truly believe in.  That's an amazing passion that I need to fuel behind something.

My biggest unknown is that I don't know exactly what to put my passion behind.  I am starting to see the way that I contribute to people around me and the unique skills that I have related to interacting with other people and understanding business needs.  I just don't know what it is that I was meant to do with these skills.  Part of my life mission is to also be a partner and inspiration to my husband and help in fulfilling his dreams.  I know that together we can make his business successful and we will strive to be part of a personal and American dream.  I want to utilize all the skills and sacrifices that foreigners who come to America have through self-sacrifice and discipline.  I'm a people-watcher and analyze the successes of others.  I am still working on exactly how to translate those observances into active lessons for myself.  I believe that it's a life-long skill but I also feel myself getting close to what I was meant to be doing.

I need to go and take care of some of my daily responsibilities but everyday I will continue to exceed and fulfill this unknown mission that I was meant to do.  I will be pleasantly surprised one day on exactly what that is but when I figure it out, I will be sharing it with the world.

New Money = New You - Old You

The title of this post was not created by me.  This quote came from a very interesting book I finally got my hands on by Rabbi Daniel Lapin called Thou Shall Prosper.  I'm only 8% into this book (thanks to Kindle for giving me the percentage) and I'm already excited with the concepts I'm reading.  Rabbi Lapin explains how making more money changes a person, which then further allows a person to make more money.  The formula explained in the title is a simple math equation that really is a very interesting concept.  In order to create more wealth, a person needs to continue to grow and change to match the desired environment and expectations.

A New Beginning - AGAIN!

Well, my last post seemed to focus on 'relationships' and that's what I've done.  I'm happy to say that vision boards, motivational books, and building confidence is a guarantee that change will come in your life.  I've made many mental strides in the last few months.  I still have a goal of lowering my debt and working on getting out of the mountain of debt that I've created over the last couple years.  However, rather then focusing solely on that and allowing it to bring me down and feel like I'll never get past that hurdle, I've realized that positive thoughts go a long, long way.

Build Relationships

I've been very lucky to have very strong relationships in my life. I have friends that I've known for over 20 years and that's important to help keep me grounded.  I love new things and I love to meet new people.  However, sometimes the existing friends are the ones that remind you where you came from, the stuggles you've had and the obstacles that you've overcome.  New friends are great and it's important to continue to grow outside your comfort zone as well.

Bite My Tongue - LISTEN!

"Bite my tongue."  That is today's objective.  I was a very good listener when I was a child and early adult.  Sometimes I realize now that I wasn't as good of a listener as I was as a child.  As I grow older, I feel like I finally have life experience so I want to share it with others.  However, sometimes I regret after I've spoken what I've just said or shared.  That means that I've talked too much and not listened enough.

Blessings!

I'm going through a rough patch financially right now and it's difficult to swallow and deal with sometimes.  But the last few weeks are full of reminders to me that I am still very blessed and should be grateful for these many blessings.  I have 3 healthy children who couldn't be happier and except for some minor ear infections or viruses, we've avoided any serious illnesses to date.

Marketing

The kids are well and I love being a mom.  Another day to look at expenses and focus on saving $$.  I need to find ways to be creative in saving & making money.  I bought diapers online today for $0.23/diaper which is up $0.03/diaper from my last purchases.  It doesn't seem like much but for 1 box of 120 diapers, that's $3.60 difference which could get me a meal (not out but a home-cooked one!).
