Being Afraid of Taking on Risks

Hello World,

I am about to share a story of of my friend. Hopefully this story will help your dilemmas between any risks you are afraid of taking. I want you to be successful and inspire you. I want you to quit making excuses and just go for it.

One of my friend is a teacher. She loves to teach. However, the pandemic had given her some free time to take on something else on her plate. She was actually miserable during this lockdown. She thougth she had nothing going for herself. She often felt stuck.

She lives with a huge family. Living with a big family can give you anxiety at times as there are too many leaders in the same house. Too many people want things done their own way. Too many people have their own opinion. She felt stuck at home too.

She was getting overwhelmed at home as interactions increased at home during the pandamic. One day she thought, she has all this free time, why not put at to use on taking up something creative?! She always wanted to do something creative, but was always afraid of the failure and feedback.

She asked some of her family members to model for her as she shoots some pictures of them. She purchased a cheap camera. She asked her brother and his wife to wear there best caual clothes and did few photoshoots with them. Some at home and some at the park. My friend started to youtube photography techniques and trust me, you might think it’s easy to be a photographer but she was learning like she was in school for photography. She had tons and tons of notes from her youtube research.

After that, she started to post constantly on Instagram. Soon after people started to notice her pictures and started to contact her with photoshoot requests. With each and different styles of photoshoot her skillset improved. She made over $1000 this quarantine just by following her passion.

She absolutely loves it! This has become her passive income stream. She has a lot of people asking for her shoot. She just created a stream of gaining income over the quarantine.

I want you to follow her path and take that risk! Just try it for fun! Turst me the least that can happen is, you will fail. That’s it!

What I Currently Invest In

Hello World,

I don’t know why people are often scared of sharing what they are investing in. Yes, don’t give out the actual manufacturer information for the products you are selling for your business. This makes sense because, other people can copy and the demand for your product will slowly become less. However, you are allowed to share things like stocks and real estates or other ideas that everyone can participate.

I believe in a community system. I like to share and learn. That’s the best way of learning for me. No secrets! You have a question then just ask, you will have an answer if I have the answer. You share your learnings and I share mine and we both grow together.

I currently invest in real estate. I look up properties using Redfin or contact various real estate agent to get listings to find properties I can afford.

In addition, I invest in stocks and ETFs. There is a lot of stocks I invest in but, I made the most money on my Tesla stocks as I bought them early while they were low. I also buy a lot of ETF’s as they pay dividends. The strategy here is to keep investing in dividends and over the cours the dividends will become an income. It’s hard to see the impact if you buy on one or two shares of ETF’s. I would suggest taking an ETF like IShare XDIV and investing a $500, or $1000, each month or year, depending on how much you can put aside. The compunt effect will help you earn a lot more dividends as the time goes by.

Thank you for your incredible support!!!

Community Management – Social Media

Hello World,

I have learned over the years that there is a lot community managment that is involved in keeping the engagement on your blogs/social media flowing. People are engaged when there is communication! I love that you all write comments and interact with me on my blogs. Honestly, I realized that actually helps so much for a creator to keep moving forward.

For example, on my blog of starting my YouTube channel, I received so much positive and encouraging comments. This shows that being real and vulnerbable with yoru readers builds a connection and creates a support system. I love hearing from your all and hearing your experiences.

If we don’t share our own journey, failures, and successes, other people will not be able to learn. That is exactly what I try to do with these blogs. I try to keep you all focussed and motivated for your own passions and goals. I want you to get to the lifestyle you are all striving to get to and I know you guys are doing a great job!

Thanks for showing me so much love and support! I hope to share more of journey as I take on more risks for my own personal growth!

Second Wave – Be Prepared For Unemploymeent / Lay offs?

Hello World,

Two day delay but here I am once again! So it’s going to be a hard hit everyone so be prepared.

The economy already went through the first wave and saw a round of lay offs. Lay offs are not plesant. Long back, I was layed off from a position. The compnay was doing “Re-Org” which, basically means they are trying to save cost. At that time, I didn’t have a job for 6 months. Good thing, I wasn’t completely alone. I had family support and a roof to stay.

Looking back, I couldn’t find a job for 6 months because, I lacked experience, I didn’t know where to look, how to properly set up my resume, didn’t know anyone or have any connections, and the last but the main point, it is hard to find a job! You have to keep looking and trying until you land a position because, more than 1,000’s others are also interested and trying their luck on the same position.

Second wave will be a hard hit everyone so be prepared! When I say be prepared, I mean to say, please have a second source of income or at least update your skills.

Friends saying, the purchases of appliances such as fridge has gone up, why? Because, pepole are preparing to stack up for the second wave. My doctor friends and family are stating that they are cutting health care worker hours, just to save cost at this time. Even depressing enough, we are in debt as a country!

$768 billion – According to data from Statistics Canada, net debt (gross debt minus assets) as of March 2019 was approximately CAD$768 billion. With a total GDP of approximately CAD$2.2 trillion, Canada’s overall net-debt/GDP ratio is about 34%.”

This is concerning and depressing as more covid patients are coming in, yet we are cutting cost of health care workers.

So for your own good! I want you to research a skill that will be valued at this time. Save and invest your money. Invest in yourself. I want you to look up different ways of passive income. Try putting up your skills on Fiverr and Skillshare. Try developing a course on Udemy. I want you to have that extra flow of income coming in. It’s not easy but, I want you to atleast try for it. Growth is key!

Thank you for your love and support as usual!

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!

Are You Behind? Does it Bother You?

Hello World,

This is my thrid attempt at this as this post won’t save for some reason. Also, I am behind! This was supposed to release yesterday!

So what happens when you are behind? You usually procrastinate, as in do other things that make you feel more empty and bad afterwards or you get major anxiety. I know I am the motivational one out of both of us but, I get major anxiety too!

What are our options then? How do we handle not being bothered by being behind? The answer is simple! We need to segment our tasks! We need to stop seeing the project or life as the big picture and work on everything on a smaller level. Try to break the task down as much as you can.

Basically, think of everything as a milestone. Let’s say, you want to finish a course, run your own business, raise a child, and also buy your own house all at once. Okay sure, but that is too much on your plate and it will definitely lead to major stress. You will no way do a good job in achieving any of those goals.

Then what do you do? Treat each of those as a milestone and set a priortiy on them. This will help you see your tasks in and evaluate and assess your time of completion. You will be closer to finishing your goals quicker.

Another reason being behind can bother us is due to comparison. Why oh why do you have to compare yourself to your best friend or a person who doesn’t even know you? Trust me, whatever you see that you want that they have might be all good but, there is an aspect of their life that they are struggling with as well.

You have to be happy with the situation you are given. You have to make the best out of your environment. Everyone will hit one or two or many road blocks in their life. But you have to keep going. Comparison will only slow you down. You have to make most of your journey.

Until next time,

Dla
