Ever wondered how you can win in life?
I never did but I have managed to accomplish such a feat.
Not completely but I have managed to figure out what was really holding me back from living life to the fullest.
Life is meant to be fun and enjoyable but there are so many unnecessary things that keep us stressed and grumpy.
There are a few things that you can do and understand that will make life that much easier and I would like to share them with you.
Not to say that I live a stress free life but I have definitely found a way to live better.
We all live a life of choices and options but are you making the right ones?
Most of you aren’t and that is why this post will help you understand what is really going on with your life.
If you are stressed out and can’t seem to control what happens in your life, just know that you are not alone.
We all go through the same financial struggles and we all let life get the best of us.
With these simple tips, I hope to help you win at life so that you can live better and stop stressing over things that you can actually control.
They have worked for me and I know they will work for you too.
Let me show you how to win at life, even if you think you can’t do anything right.
1. Read the Bible
I am in no way religious and I have never read the bible in my life.
I grew up a Catholic but not once did I try to understand what they taught.
the Bible never crossed my mind and I had two beliefs.
One, as long as you believe in God, you are good to go and two, the Bible has what you need.
I did not think of the latter but I did believe in God and that’s all that mattered to me.
Just recently was I approached by some Jehova’s Witnesses, whom I did give my time to.
Without judging, I let them talk to me about the Bible.
By listening to the simple things that this book of life teaches, everything has become a lot more clear.
I am still no religious activist and I am still Catholic but understanding the Bible has really contributed to a much better life.
Do this alone and you will see some big changes as well.
Don’t knock it until you have at least given it a try either.
2. Live For Yourself
These days people are too caught up living for everyone else.
The car they drive, the clothes they wear, and even the food they eat.
Do you think that buying that $50,000 car that you think you afford just to show others will benefit you?
Will the people you associate with be the ones to feel that paycheck getting chopped in half just to pay for a car?
And when you see yourself eating at some fancy restaurant just to snap some photos for Instagram, just remember that no one really cares.
Get a car to get you around that will not fail on you next week.
Eat food to enjoy the wonderful taste that the different cultures provide for us and not because you want to show others you ate at some place with overpriced cheeseburgers.
Life is amazing if you do what you want and when you want to do it.
I guess since I’m talking about some financial issues, I’ll jump right into the next topic.
3. Be Frugal
Being frugal is not something you can just do, especially if you have a bunch of bad habits.
Spending on things you feel you need is a good one but overusing is one that you won’t see.
By this, I mean paper towels, laundry detergent, usage of gasoline, and all the necessities that come with living.
Do you really think you need to get Tide or was it the commercial that got you to get a jug?
When you have the money, you will use it on that Tide without even thinking.
Do you really think you need to run back to the store to grab that gallon of milk?
Definitely not and that is why I have a whole post on saving more fuel.
There is no need to purchase things that commercials tell you to get.
Get what works and don’t overspend on anything.
This includes tissue, shampoo, soap, cereals, and so on.
The cheap stuff works great and it works even better for your wallet.
If you can’t understand a lick of what being frugal means, try going broke and you will learn in a heartbeat.
4. Improve Your Financial Situation
Money can and will control you if you don’t control it.
The thing about money is that we usually have enough of it to live and even improve our financial situations.
The problem is we don’t allow it to happen and that’s just how it is.
If we make $2k/month that will be more than enough to live off of.
But then we tack on so many unnecessary crap that we lose control of everything.
New car, more credit cards, and more nonsense that you feel you need in your house.
That then leads to the wonderful world of paycheck to paycheck and a lot of unwanted stress.
This would also happen even if you made more money, so don’t think it’s dependent on your salary.
The point here is to understand what is going on.
Leave out all the stuff you never had to begin with and focus on making some kind of investment.
Invest in stocks, start a small business of some sort, or even start an online affiliate marketing business selling other people’s products.
And if you can respond to a comment, you can if you started your own blog.
It’s not as complicated as you think it is and the additional income is something that will help you live a better life.
Who knows, you might just be able to fire your boss and live the laptop lifestyle like I do.
There are many things you can do but break out of your comfort zone and make something happen.
5. Surround Yourself With Positivity
This is the most common thing you need to do to improve your life, which is why I put it in the middle of this list.
The people you surround yourself with will have the biggest impact on how you live.
The most common place to find these people will be at this thing called work.
Most will say you can’t choose your friends but I beg to differ.
I held a nice little 9-5 before I decided that this ship I was on wasn’t taking me anywhere.
Financially and most especially mentally.
Employees of any place of work will all usually think the same.
Then there’s that 1% that will think differently and go against the grain.
These are the kind of people that get shit done and don’t care about what anyone thinks.
These are the kind of people that gossipers usually talk about.
And these are the kinds of people who are usually apart of the 1% who are living life on their own terms.
The people you are around will dictate where your life is headed and you will fall into that trap if you settle.
Don’t settle for mediocre and don’t settle for being apart of the norm.
Do something others won’t do and live life the way it’s supposed to be lived.
I don’t care how comfortable you are at your current job, if it doesn’t allow at least some kind of freedom, get on the ball and start your search for something better.
You might just fire your boss and not even know it.
