The game of money

I, myself, had never a good view about money. Money just was there to get me something. My parents always bought things for me. Last week started thinking about it what it is and why people have so many problems with it. Because I thought is was just simple, but is it?

The problem with money

These days people are getting more and more materialism (including myself). Materialism means that people buy this because of emotional triggers such as breaking up, thinking they will be more fulfilled.
And to solve this problem you certainly don’t have to buy things. You have to look at yourself. Look at your inner game. Look at what kind of beliefs you have about money. And perhaps write them down. Think by yourself about your own long term view. Because thats what counts. Not your fulfillment at that time. I know it is hard, I have been there myself. But you can do this, you can start right now.
And if you aren’t buying because of emotional triggers, good job!

The definition of money

Money is for many people, maybe you too, a product for there dreams. For example to have a holiday to a foreign country with their kids. I think you should try to look from this new perspective; Money is a byproduct of your passion. Of course in the beginning of your career you do it for saving money. But after a will and having a 9 to 5 job. You could step up your game and just do what you’re really passioned about. Because even if it isn’t that well payed, you are doing what you love to do. I think you should put your passion before the money even if that needs the offer of living in a basement. I don’t think it gets that serious but I think you get my point :) -> *Money is a byproduct of your passion.*

A quote I really like which shows the economic world we life in;
Give a man a gun and he can rob a bank. Give a man a bank and he can rob the world.
There you have it, my view on money. Hopefully you agree with me, let me know :)

The importance of reading

Today we are going to discuss the importance of reading. Reading has been in our lives since the middle ages but it faded away in the begining of this century. Mainly under teenagers it isn't popular anymore. Therefore I wanted you to show the importance of reading. Because a lot of people don't see the use in books nowadays. So let's get started,
Reading has a lot of benefits to the mind. The first benefit is that the mind needs the practice of reading to sense the words it sees. It develops the ability to connect the words to images in the head. So how more you read how faster and better you will read. And it will give you a bigger arsenal of vocabulary. Further reading create the ability to focus better and really listen to people in general. Because you train your brain to concentrate on one thing at a time. It also improves your memory because when we read, we are using our memory muscle. Joseph ones used a great metaphor, which explains it all;
Reading is to the m…

Live in the moment

During my life, most of the time I noticed awareness just slipped away like sand. I couldn’t get grip on it. And I wanted to live in the moment, for ever. Every time I tried to just focus on it. But I noticed it didn’t work, so I tried a lot of methods. As a result, I found that 6 of those acts were really good. So today, I am going to share 6 tips which are going to give you more joy in live. Because when you live in the moment, there is no-one stopping you ;)

These acts which will help you live in the moment,

1, Breath. Just breath. Focus on your breath. Close your eyes, or not, it is up to you. Feel the air flow through your throat getting in your lungs. Feel it, giving you the energy you need. In the long run the energy will give you a boost which will result in your mind living in the moment.

2, Stop over-thinking about it. Although it is a hard method. When you get hold on this one, it will improve your awareness. Because of the fact that thinking to much about it is bad, you w…

Why you should never compare yourself with other

I really was a shy twelve-year old (I know that is a long time ago). And during that time, I spent most of my school days comparing myself to others. But after a while, actually years, I finally opened my mind and saw that comparing really is a bad thing in life. Comparing is what sugar is for your health. It ruins attitude towards yourself. In my case, it really destroyed me. But, today I want to show you why you should not compare yourself, and where you should focus on. So let’s get started!

Comparing is never fair.
We all have a different past. We all are different.Maybe that someone has so much money because he started saving on an early age. As a result he has now more money, so what. Let your past be and focus on now. Or maybe your neighbor has a great six-pack. Don’t worry about it you are a good person, it doesn’t matter if you don’t have that six-pack. You will get there, if you want to. After all comparing will just never be fair. Because of the fact that we all are differe…
