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!

When Was The Last Time You Took A Risk?

Hello World,

When was the last time you took a risk? This is a genuine question I am asking. I try to take well evaluated risks every week. This keeps life exciting and also pushes me towards learning something new. Contradicatory to popular beliefs, taking risks also makes you fortune. The key is, you have to be well informed. You have to do your research.

As I said, when you push yourself and learning something new that’s in demand, you can turn that around and make it work for you. You can make it a skill to teach to others, or turn your skill into a business.

In addition, you should actually make your money work for you! Save, but don’t just save, put it into investment. You should always focus on creating a well diversified portfolio.

I know much of the other countries are not as lucky as us Canadians, but hey, if you are Canadian then take advantage of your TAX FREE SAVINGS ACCOUNT. You won’t have to pay tax on any of your interests! You should have a brokerage with Wealthsimple or Questrades, I am sure there are other great ones but, these are the ones with low trading rates. Then invest a good portion of your money on divident paying stocks or a well diversified portfolio that will grow with time.

Make your money work for you! Millennials are both rich and poor according to a Business Insider Article . People born around 1980, joined the workforce during great depression and hence, are still playing catch. Since then the increase of income has been up by 67%, even with that rise, Millennials student debts are holding them back. Millennials also like to spend more than they earn.

Recently we are seeing a lot of Gen Z going into investments and opening small businesses. They are financially well versed as they are in the process of trial and error at a very eary age.

Intead of playing catch up with your generation, take some risks for your personal growth and also financial growth.
