Stagnant – Stuck – Anxiety – What it Takes to Improve Your Situation

Hello World,

What does it really take to look past your “stuck” situation right now? It takes experience of going through it a couple of times and then saying, okay I take ownership of my situation!

Acceptance is our keyword for today’s topic. It takes acceptances to move on or keep moving from any tough situation. It’s all perspective at the end of the day. You can see your current situation as glass half full or glass half empty. As in you can make your situation bad or worst.

I get it though, when you are in the situation where the entire environment is super negative, it’s hard to think positively. Mainly when anything you do leads to none of your goals. You start putting yourself down and telling yourself that you are just not good enough!

Yes, I go through that too! When there is too much pressure of work or let’s say I just take on too much to prove I am “good enough”… perfect example of jumbling my thoughts, and taking on too much than I can chew. That’s when anxiety hits.

What to do in those situations? Accept… accept that it will all end one day, and just like the person next to you, there will be an end to you. That means, there is no reason to hold on to these negative thoughts, all you can do is keep pushing and moving forward. Your situation will change eventually if you put in the work to make those small changes.

We make a mistake of always focussing on the end goal! However, life is simple. It’s about making smaller changes in your life to get those end results.

For example, I see a software engineer or a product manager making a certain amount of money and living an easy lifestyle. I can’t wake up tomorrow morning and hope that I am a software engineer / product manager. I need to make those changes / put in sacrifices to get to that level to achieve that lifestyle. There will be many road blocks! Many, many, many road blocks — the main point is, take breaks, but don’t stop!

You don’t see results right away, at least I haven’t but, 10 years later, you will look back and think that struggle was required!

Negative Comments / Feedback Bring You Down?

Hello World,

Honestly, I don’t want to sound like, “I can handle it all!”… I am human. It does bother me. Negative feedback / criticism is impacts me. I think about it, I get anxiety from it. Something I can’t control…

But, what do you do when anxiety hits from a feedback or negative comment? What questions pop into your mind?

You step away from it…

Sustainability! Yes, for me it’s sustainability! Confidence is great! I have a lot of it but, can sometimes someone elses feedback can throw you off. That’s when you start feeling are you good enough?! So how do you shake that are you, “good enough” off? Take a hot shower, completely distract yourself and do something else that you love doing. Take a walk, paint, sing, go do an activity that you love doing. Come back and reflect!

Then come back and start working on the task that you are not so good at! Yes, people will have opinions, feedbacks, their perspective! Take it in, destress, and come back to the given task.

I couldn’t change my anxiety so over time I made any feedback that got to me a little, my strength! I started working towards it. I always try to out perform. Taking on the chanllenge has led me to become more stronger without even knowing it!

So just step away for a bit! de-clutter and come back to it and complete your task while, trying to get better at it!

Thanks for the love guys! I really love the support!

What Scares You About Starting A Business?

Hello World,

What scares you about starting your own business? There is several underlying fears people often overthink about and just stop pursuing their passions. I am sure you felt one of these or the other, here is a list of your self limiting beliefs…

  1. What will people think? How will they look at me when I start a business?
  2. What if I fail? What will people think of me then?
  3. What if I lose money?
  4. I don’t know which products or services…
  5. This is too much work, I don’t know anything
  6. I don’t know where to start my business, their are way too many pieces.
  7. The market is too saturated for what I want to do...
  8. Too much money to invest…
  9. I don’t know how to talk to my suppliers
  10. I don’t know how to market my product. I am not a social media personality. I am too shy.
  11. I don’t know any of the legal stuff…
  12. I am not good enough…
  13. I just don’t know where to start…

Money

Here is the thing, you will always have these fears if you don’t over come and take a step to begin somewhere. These days people do not take a lot of money to start their business. You have to see what is costing you. The supplies, shipping fees, hosting, advertising and little extra for other costs. You have to plan your exepense. Even then you won’t see a profit right away, unless you are selling a stellar product or service.

You have to keep reinvesting until it grows. The whole business journey is a process. But you have to be willing and consistent to see a growth.

Get to saving about $1,000 to $3,000 to invest in yourself. Get a sewing machine, a circuit, a camera, or an orbelo account to start your own business.

Product Research

It is easy these days. Orbelo literally shows you analysis on how much products are selling and which ones are popular. There are other paid analytics tools. You need to always research on current trends to stay up to date. But, if you have your own product then it comes down to your marketing and your social media presence.

Also, if you are designing your products, then i have glog posts on how to research trade marks.

Find suppliers and reach out to them and negotiate the prices. If you are using oberlo, you won’t need to do it. However, for a good pricing strategy where you are making a profit, please plan it all out!

Where to Start? Register your business.

Do a Google Search, it tells you step by step. This is literally what you type in, “how to start a business in (Your Area)”. This will give you start to finish of how, what, why and when tot register your business and any small fees associated. Do the search or you will be left with your self limiting beliefs.

Start your research before you write in the comments that it can’t be done! Have a little faith in yourself.

Thank you,

Ask Yourself Before You Write an Opposing Comment

Hello World,

I am IT professional. I have ton of experience in programming, business, and investment. I create these motivational peices for you all to follow along. I hope you all enjoy my candid way of writing. You can all learn from my journey. My informative reads are just for you to read in the hopes you will take something away and apply it to your daily life. My pieces are here to improve your mindset. It is your CHOICE to take the information or not.

Recently, I had a comment from someone stating that I have it easy, and they have it hard. They wrote a complete different scenario of their life in the comment section which was unrelated to what I was mentioning in my blog.

Before digging deep, I want to segment the types of audiences I reached through out my blogging journey. I found there are different sets of audiences on WordPress.

> There are people who are using the content and need help. These are usually small business owners, studentds, professionals or new bloggers.

>Then there are people who are retired / don’t have work / stay at home for any life reasons they have. Some of these people have been past professionals and have great insights, some of them are just readers and few of them are just here to argue about past vs. future.

>Also, there are people who are mentally struggling due to their environment and or other related issues. These people do not have others to open up to.

My comment section is always open for you all! However, please try to take away the mindset and or idea, rather than being the opponent of what I am trying to relay in my blog. For example, I talk about investments all the time. I have a good grasp on it. I make money and enough for me to put away. I share ways on how you can as well. But if you feel differently, then don’t! (I had to laugh here)… if that is not your long term goal then please follow your own plan. Everyone has different life stories, I am just sharing what works for me and current trends so you can learn.

If you are mentally struggling, I have many blogs on anxiety and self doubt. Eveyone goes through it and it is not easy. Please take a look at all my blogs below.

If you are in an environment where you are not safe, please just don’t write it in my comments, seek help. If you are able to write on my comment section then you are able to do a quick google search.

The Way You Measure Success Can Lead To Anxiety

Hello World,

Yes, the way you conceptualize your life can lead to anxiety. Do you measure your success against money? Do you measure your success against people and how well they are doing? Are you thining you are never good enough because, you feel you haven’t done enough?

Then your metrics is incorrect! Because, that will never lead you towards happiness. Some metrics to measure yourself gives you a boost in the short run. Hey, if he/she can do it, then I can do it better… yes, it helps you accomplish but, sometimes the success is just not attainable and it’s not your fault at all.

Therefore, change your perspective and values. You should just look to enjoy the journey. Have goals and plans but, if it doesn’t work out, then don’t beat yourself up.

But when I say don’t beat yourself up, that doesn’t mean don’t completely give up! Getting confusing but, all I am saying is find that balance of keep moving forward without feeling like you have failed.

Failure is inevitable! It’s a part of life. You need failure in order for there to be growth. If you got everything right in your life then, you wouldn’t have learned anything. There would have been no progress. You would have been a born genius and us humans are far from that!

Self reflect and take a look at how you conceptualize your life. Do you blame others or blame yourself? Then your metrics is not right.

Thank you,

You Have To Have a Digital Currency – I am not talking Crypto

Hello World,

You have to have a digital currency at today’s time. Although, I am all for Crypto – buy your Etherium and monitor the trends. However, I am not speaking about that. I am saying, that you have to have a following in today’s generation to keep up. A following on social media, and other digital platforms. Anything that gives you a positive traction towards your content.

The following actually validates your work and brings you more exposure to your brand. This helps your business grow with word of mouth. Word of mouth is the strongest form of advertising and marketing your brand. First and foremost, it’s free, sceond word of mouth usually comes from a reliable source such as your friends and family. Hence, it builds trust quicker than other branding techniques.

The number of following you have becomes a digital currency. The more you have the more valuable you are, the more work you get, and the more fortune you make. That’s one reason why people make a lot of money doing affiliate marketing and or starting a YouTube channel while posting daily. Posting daily creates traction.

Traction is important for the content you put out. It gets you notice. But the key to creating traction is consisitency, schedule, persistency and quality. You can’t give up, no matter how boring it is! It’s a part of building a brand, along with putting out good quality content for validation and shares.

So if you are any type of creative or business owner, I need you to focus on your social media strategy. A strategy good enough to bring you traction. At first you will just receive followings/views but, in the long run it will make you money.

Story Time – Retirement Calculator

Hello World,

I am very career oriented and financially savvy individual and I like to believe everyone is the same. However, I am writing this post because, I was speaking to one of my friends and she is struggling with her finanances. I was trying to ask her more questions to see how she can save in order to pay for her bills.

She told me, she was struggling to pay off her credit cards, her brothers wedding was coming up so she bought some clothes. Then she said, she had bought a 8,000 dollars used car which looks really fancy and nice from outside, but turned out to be costly as it keeps breaking down. On top of that she has clinical anxiety for which, she can’t work full time. She also has school loans.

This is a vicious cycle! I am sharing this story that way you all avoid making this mistake. She doesn’t earn a lot with her part time job, she has to pay for gas, her car keeps breaking down, and she has a lot of loan. She says, she is not living her “best life”. When I asked her what does “best life” mean to her, her response was, “being financially free”. My follow up question was, what are you doing to resolve this? She said, she is trying to get a higher paying job.

But in the scenario above, what is one thing that she can eliminate in order to start saving right away? Did you say the broken car? Then great minds think alike!

A car is an expensive expense. You have to pay for gas, maintenance, and insurance. If you do not need a car, then don’t get one.

I went onto asking her about her retirement plans, she said, she doens’t think that far ahead. What about you all? Do you think that far ahead? Will you have enough money in your bank account by the time you are 60 to live off of it for the rest of your life when you cannot earn anymore?

If you didn’t plan that far then you definitely should plan your retirement. Here is a calculator that shows exactly how much you need to be putting away in order to save for your retirement:

If you have not started then I want you to start! START

I came across an article recently talking about gaps in economy and/or technogical evolution is when entrepreneurs are created. So why are you waiting?

The main problem most people have is starting because, there are many underlying factors that they think they can’t over come. For example, starting a business requires you to register it. Another delay is, how will people react? – Yes, I know that’s most of your problem. How will people react and weather your project will be successful or not?

But the point is, you will never find out if you don’t try and reach out for help! One of the things to START with is RESEARCH! Research on how other people executed the project you are intersted in. Once you get the braoder idea, reach out to at least three people who have succeeded or are in the works of creating their project to get an overview and perspective of their experience. Trust me, they will share different experiences that will be valuable to your own success.

STORY TIME:

True Stroy 1:

I will share some success stories I have witnessed over the quarantine to motivate you. My friend had been let go from her job. She was depressed for a bit but then she picked up the camera she got as a gift (not too expensive) and started asking her friends and family to pose for her. She started learning how to edit the pictures. Every day she edited a picutre and became better at editing. First and foremost, she loved taking photographs. It started to become her passion. My friend started creating her portfolio which, led a fashion blogger to approach her for a photoshoot! Isn’t that just awesome? Do you know how many followers she will be exposed to now?

What does that story say? Just pick up something fun to do and keep working at it, the opportunities will follow.

True Stroy 2:

My coworker was slammed with homeschooling her kids while working. She has three kids and works in IT. To de-stress she started baking a lot over the weekends. She loved baking and that was one of the ways that she dealt with her anxiety. She started posting the cakes she would bake on social media. How long did this quarantine last us? 3 months? Well, within just three months she received several orders and grew a cliental and bakes 15 cakes per weekend.

True Stroy 3:

My friend was let go from the airport where she was a high ranking manager. She has marital issues and her personal life is a mess. To destress, she started painting old furniture. She would buy old furniture on Kijiji to replenish them. She would paint them looking new, added handles she bought from Kijiji or Amazon and resell them for great value. This is a boss story! This girl always inspires me to keep going!

Trade Mark for your Brand

Hello World,

I always want to provide informative content you can use to excel in your personal and professional growth.

I am the kind of personality who had to learn on her own and find her own coaches and mentors. I had to put in research for all the knowledge I have equiped over the years and I am still growing and learning.

Today I want to know if you are growing your brand? If you are, then check out these two websites which will help you locate Trade Marks for your brand. You can go on these websites and search for your Brand name and or a slogan.

USPTO – https://www.uspto.gov/

TradeMarkia – https://www.trademarkia.com/

Once, you searched the trade mark item you are looking for two things!

  1.  If the trade mark is “Dead” or “Live” 
  2. Detailed description of the industry the brand name/slogan was used for.

If the trademark is LIVE then you would not be able to use the trademark!
