Took A Little Break Because of Anxiety

Hello World,

My anxiety began when my father passed away. I use to always have anxiety but, not as badly. Anxiety took over the day I knew he will no longer be with us. It started to get worst day after day. I realized I can’t work like this. If I let it take over, I can’t work or focus. That’s when I started listening to podcast and really focused on work.

I opened many doors by only focussing on work. However, still I get some serious anxiety hitting me time to time. That’s when I have to just step away and do things that relaxes my mind. I just relaxed my mind by sleeping early, doing things completely unrelated to work and putting on some good music.

A lot little things triggers my anxiety. Fear of sustainability is one. Fear of not being able to keep up with work is another. Third and a big one is memories of my father, which I can’t control. All of these feelings together does not feel good both physically and mentally. That is when I need to completely disconnect and give myself some time before I can step back into it.

So I hope all of you were staying safe and taking the time to disconnect time to time.

Family Obstacles Can Create Anxiety

Hello World,

Has this ever happened to you? Are you career driven but, you live with your family or you have your own family, or you have certain obstacles that just get in the way.

Story time! One of my friends live with her family. It’s a family of five, mom, dad, brother, and sister-in-law and my friend. Recenly, my friend, let’s call her Mary… Mary’s brother got married and now Mary has more family members she has to share her interest with. Her mom and dad was hard enough to deal with but, now she has her brothers family. The entire family is a bit conservative and always checks up on Mary when she is out with her frineds or shopping, etc. Think about it, Mary is past 30 and the family still checks up on her to see what she is doing.

Sounds sweet, because, family should always check up on each other but, when the check in’s become interenece that creates a problem.

Mary’s family interference has always stopped her from progessing in life. You will see many people who are successful, move out very early in there life. I am not saying that should be a goal but, if your family is always in your case then maybe it’s a good thing to draw the line between your passion and your family. In Mary’s case, she is not able to move out. She did not get to excel very far in her career because, her family always stopped her from partaking or pursuing her dreams.

From a conservative families perspective, they are just looking over and protecting their daughter. However, parents should realize that needs to stop at a certain age and kids should learn to take control of their own lives and make their own mistakes.

Mary has developed anxiety from this occurance. The pressure of matching up to everyones expectation at home while, supressing her own desires and goals has led her to develop serious depression. Now she has a part time continuing with work for long periods of time. Mary has to take gaps, take mental health days, and ask to become part time in many instance.

This becomes a stoppage in her life where she can’t earn alot of money because, of her mental health challenges.

Now Mary is a relationship where she finds a bit of peace. She feels like she can get away from her problems and the pressure at home. She doesn’t have to meet so much expectations in this relations. Despite what she feels the relationship is clearly not good for her. The boyfriend is also not ambitious, does not have a stable job, and says she doesn’t see them as a long term couple. She’s just with him because, she’s feels more at peace with him and feels that she will be able to change her mind in the future.

Mary’s thinking is blurred now as she has several problems. One, her family has expectations that she feels she needs to meet. Two, she does not know how to make more money with her career or progess towards success. Making more money will atleast help her become independent. Third, she’s in a really toxic relationship.

Any guidance offered by her friends are just becoming overwhelming for her. She is having a hard time processing over load of information. Her friends are telling her to leave her boyfriend as he is just straying her along. Mary is unable to leave the relationship as that’s the only time she gets to disengage from her family. Mary’s family is pressuring her to get married soon, or keep tabs on when she goes out. The family is also upset and scared of her taking the wrong steps which will hurt her even more. Not being able to make more money is getting in the way of her moving out and finding more balance.

When people have problems from all aspects of life, they need to take a step back and realize that they need to take it one step at a time. If there are several big problems and they are all connected then prioritize your issues and break them down.

In order to make money, Mary has to save money. She has to make some sacrifices to cut down on her expesnes. In order for her parents to understand her point of view, she needs them on her team. Instead of pushing them away, create that bond and spend time with them. That way they will at least be open to hearing her out. When Mary understands that there are clear differences between her boyfriend and her, she should count her losses and just let him go. This all sounds easy from an outside perspective but it’s hard for the victim to comprehend and process.

If you are ever in a situation where you have several problems at once. Do one thing, work on your mindset. Keep your calm and know that everything will turn around. Tackle your problems one by one.

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!!!

Up Your Salary – Story Time

Hello World,

We all have financial goals. In order to get to those the first and foremost trick is to getting paid more so you can save and invest and still take care of your investments. Your goal should be to increasing your salary every year. Instead of telling you to upgrade your skills and research on skills that will land you another high paying job or make you more sought after, I will just share a story. I hope this story encourage and motivates you.

I know someone who splurges like no tomorrow. She is eating out at fancy dinners every single day and partying with friends. Just by looking at her social media you would think she is making a waste of her life by spending so much on night outs and expensive products. However, she started off being an accountant analyst at Deloitte, soon she become a senior Deloitte analyst.

She had several accounting jobs in between where she upgraded her skills and picked up on various financial standards that companies to comply with. As you know many companies today quickly need to adapt to the 2020 IFRS standard to avoid legal issues. She adopted these skills set which are desired for most of the multi national companies right now. Soon she became a accounting manager at a large telecommunications company in Canada, which paid her about 90K to 100K.

Within a year of working at that company she networked and went back to Deloitte as a manager and earned 100K to 115K. She stayed with Deloitte for 8 months and then Rakuten picked her up and now she makes 124K per year. She did all this within a span of less than 2 years.

Many of our job situations are dependent on many factors, however, I want this story to motivate you and think about your financial goals. Where do you want to be in the near future with your salary? Are you taking those actions to make the change happen?

The Plan is Never Available – Takes Risks!

Hello World,

Isn’t it funny, no one wants to be the first one to take the chance? You always want to be the last one to do it unless you know for sure that you are benefiting from the opportunity.

That’s a safe way to do anything in life, right? Don’t get me wrong, you rather be safe. You rather have money in your bank than gamble it all away. However, you want to take calculated risks too. You want to take low to medium level risks so you see a stable growth.

I am surprised that many people don’t invest in anything, let alone RRSP / Roth IRA. Yes, people don’t invest in RRSP’s / ROTH IRA’s, that’s a mistake at this day and age when so much material on financial literacy is available. You want to be putting money away for when you are older and unable to work like you do today. This money will be taxed but, at a lower amount, hence, you are saving money.

People shy away from research and therefore are afraid of the unknown. Some people want a complete investment plan infront of them, before they can invest in stocks. They want a stock pick list and someone telling them which stocks to invest in. Well, hard truth, that will never happen because, the stock market is volalite. The market will go up and down but, you have to buy and hold some long term stocks. That’s why you need to do your own research. I use to find it excrutiating at first too. But as you start researching and buying stocks, you understand the flow.

Some people have a lot of money in their back or enough for a down payment. But, they are afraid of job security. They don’t want to buy the home thinking they won’t be able to to sell it in the future or rent it out. They even think how much the maintenance cost will be. However, before making that assumption, did this person do their research in the area? How much it rents for? How demanding the area is or let alone, talk to a realtor who may have an easy of option of buying the place back if they want to sell it early.

Isn’t it funny, buying a car for instance, is the worst decision in some cases as there are cost saving alternatives available such as bussing, and uber. However, we don’t think as much before purchasing a car. We think about the convinience. But a car is literally a dent in your pocket. There is car insurance, gas and maintenance–in other words, all expenses. Yet, buying a property, which most people are afraid of doing becuase, of the research, legal work, and the assumed risk–returns an income if you sell it and or rent it out.

People live on assumptions. Their assumption create self doubts for them. They want to follow others footstep but fail to seek out a mentor and resources. I think it’s time we change that and start taking some well calculated risks.

Everything From a Distance is Scary

Hello World,

Isn’t it true, every big stept or “risk” in life is scary. It can be starting your own business, taking up a new degree, investing in stocks, investing in real estate, investing in a new relationship. All of these investements are scary. These are scary because, all of it involves uncertainty. We are all scared of that word, uncertainty. All of these situations above require your time, money, and effort.

Most of the time people just end up not spending the money. The hoard it. This is not bad, it’s just safe. You are just saving which is not helping you in anyway. You are not adding growth to your money when you are simply holding on to what you already have.

Time is another thing people are afraid to invest. They want to spend time doing things they like, or in comfort…nothing wrong with that however, you need to make some time to spend towards your growth as well.

However, some people really don’t have enough time to invest in multiple goals. It could be a working mother who has to come home after work to take care of children or anyone with anxiety who need a lot of gaps before they can focus on their responsibilities. No matter what you are situation is, you need a plan for growth. A single mother may find it hard to curve out that time after maintaining a household and paying all her bills but, it’s just the idea of ownership. Even if it’s staying up late one day to do some research about career change or the stock market… that time needs to be curved out and that change needs to happen.

Making a change is never easy, even harder is starting that change! How many of you wanted to start a business or wanted to start investing in the stock market and never did it? Trust me, you are probably not speaking up now but, that’s the majority of you.

One of the reasons, motivation speakers are all open with free information and courses is because, they know half of you wouldn’t get up and try to start a business or take that risk. However, you will invest in listening to their success stories.

Everyone is afraid of failure. However, we have to all normalize failure. You try something once and it becomes easier the next time as you are more aware of your mistakes. The first try prepares you for what you should be expecting.

So if you have been waiting to start a small project for your own personal growth then please, please, please share with me your goals and get started today!!

What Has This Lockdown Taught You?

Hello World,

Sorry I am late, work has been crazy! But I am just checking up on you all!

Unpredictability! My worst fear, something that gives me deep anxiety. Yes, unpredictabilty is what I have learned from this lockdown. I have also learned to accept it.

Just like most people, it has been testing for me. I was given new challenges at work that I had to quickly adapt to in these testing times of lay offs. One of my family members passed away. Over all I was just alone pick up all my emotions and work.

Being prepared for these unprecedented times is actually what would help you gain a bit of confidence. However, some obstacles you just have to deal with and own. Feel the emotions and get back to working. Feel your emotions completely and talk about it. For examples, if you lost your job, or someone at home is sick or you are struggling with something… try to find people who went through similar expeirences and just talk about it. It will help you.

What really helped me through 2020 is listening to podcasts. I wasn’t willing to open up completely with all that was going on. The podcasts were interesting, I resonated with the stories without having to tell someone my story. I learned how other people deal with anxiety and challening situatoins. The stories were not all about coping. These were various podcast starting from finanace to simply being happy. The subject varied widely. All I can say is it help me a lot.

There will be really shitty and hard times in life! Really rock bottom times but, you have to own all situations. When I say all situations, I mean the worst of the worst. You can’t be too comfortable with your current situation. I hope of the best for everyone, but you have to be uncomfortable enough to know that you may lose it all tomorrow. You should be able to turn around and say I am okay or not okay with that!

If you are not okay with a certain situation then plan early for it if you can. If you can’t then give yourself some time to cope.

Thank you for all your support! I hope you are all strong during these unsettling times!

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!

What Will People Think Mentality? Change it!

Hello World,

What will people think only applies if you work a corporate job and you are puting out content that creates a conflict of interest. What will people think only applies, when the content you put out or the action you are about to take will harm someone you love dearly.

Otherwise, as Drake once said, you only live once! Have a chuckle at that for my poor Canadian reference!

But come on guys! Isn’t it more fruitful to stay excited by doing challenging things? What is the point of staying within your comfort zone and thinking of what others would think or feel? I bet you anything if they had a shot at their own journies they wouldn’t think twice.

You need to change that mentality and go for your dreams! Take a stab at and try! There is literally nothing to lose.

I am trying so many different things in life at this time because, I want to experience growth on a different level. Unique from others, as in not everyone will take the risks I am taking. Which is weird, because, the perceived risks I am taking, trading stocks, Fiverr, YouTube, blogging, audiobooks are all open for everyone to try.

What is your excuse for not trying any of this above or your true passion, whatever that might be… maybe a cake business, IT services, becoming good at something… basketball?

The most common answer is fear of not being good enough, fear of being judged, and fear of failure. Trust me, we have all been there!

But one thing you have to keep in mind, this time you have now will pass. Some people ddwel in the misconception that there is still time. Your body is changing every day. You are not physically capable of doing the same thing in 10 years for now so, take your shot and complete your bucket list today!

I have received a comment one time, stating that I have it easy and I have time. No, one thing I am good at it is planning! Planning made me confident in knowing what I want. I know I want growth. I know in order to achieve that growth, I must put in work and be consistent. I also know, nothing turns up at your door the next day, you have to wait your turn! Everyone has ups and downs and highs and lows, it’s your responsibility how you want to perceive the situation and action it.

That’s why I always tell you guys to keep going forward. Don’t think of what anyone says! Who cares! They will die one day and so will you. As deperessing as that sounds, it’s the only way one realizes how much time we have on this planet and how to use it wisely.

I love you guys for the support on my blog! It has been a tremondous success in my eyes! Sharing my journey has helped me grow and I am glad you all can take away something from my growth!

What is one thing you always wanted to get done? Let’s help each other grow.
