How often do you say this to yourself?
If the answer is more than once then you need this information to destress you now.
All right, you're young and you're broke. Why isn't the case? Well, there's about a billion reasons that could be the case. However, here are 7 reasons you're broke and what you can do. Yes you to change that and change your financial destiny forever. First one, you're buying things. You're buying things.
You can hold you can grab you can touch stop before you buy anything more look in your closet. How many pieces of clothing do you have? If you have more than seven shirts socks underwear? jackets shoes. You don't need anymore. Stop. Stop. Stop. Stop stop. I can't beat this into my head first off and everybody else has had enough because reality really don't need any more things.
Look in your fridge look in your cupboards. Do you need to buy the next little Gadget? Look at your phone. Do you need the newest one? Just really really really EE and Tripoli think is this a necessity is it necessary? And that's the big difference between necessity and want or desire. I want a lot of things in life.
I want a Porsche GT3 at some point. However, it's not really in need my Toyota 4Runner does just fine. So double check yourself because this is a really big. thing that's important. You're allowing distractions to run your life and it's something that you're choosing to do. How many times do you need to check your email?
You need to look at Instagram or just simply look at your phone to see if you have any new notifications? Stop stop. No Massa. Stop doing it those two to three minute breaks over time over the day. Think about if you only look at your phone. 50 times a day which sounds like a lot but next time you today even check how many times you look your phone?
Keep a tally 50 x times 2 minutes is a hundred minutes. That's about an hour and a half a little more than an hour and a half you've wasted looking at someone else's Instagram profile. Our reply to text messages or whatever maybe just stop there's such time suckers if we do that over a year. That's a hell of a lot of time you've wasted looking at someone else having a good time called the tyranny of the Urgent.
A lot of times the urgent things in our life are not the things that we need to be working on like it's urgent right this moment that I look at my email and make sure there's something I need to focus on. However. it's not something that is the. Helps the progression of what I want to do with my life.
I don't need to look at another advertisement or another newsletter. I'm on it can wait. You really can't it's still going to be there in an hour or two. So this urgent stuff. This isn't just dude. I can't wait to get all the icons so I can have zero notifications. You want to know really easy hack that I do.
Turn off all push notifications. Yeah all of them. Except text messages and phone calls and if you know my text message, if you know my phone number where you can do either of those you're pretty important person. If you're if you're not your email your direct message, whatever can wait. So turn off those push notifications and you will feel so much more free throughout the day you're spending a lot of time watching television or Netflix or Hulu or any of the above.
I hear people all the time say well, I want to make this amount of money or have this lifestyle or whatever it is. I've heard this all the time and I always asked him. Well how many hours of TV do you watch a week? And you know, the answer is unanimously. I don't know that is the issue here. It's not a matter what your TV watch it, but know that you're spending 10 hours a week watching TV.
Let's do that over a month. It's 40 hours a month. Let's do that over a year. Hours of TV imagine if you put 480 hours into reading a book or reading many books at that point or learning a new language really spending time on the hobby you enjoy or spending time with your family and people you love for goodness sake I mean goodness, that's a lot of hours and it's funny.
I now have a backdrop in front of my TV to make sure I don't spend time on TV. Because it's really a suck time sucker. If I were to ask you a year ago today. What TV show are what did you do in regards to TV? I guess I bet you're 99% of people would have no idea. So stop instead of watching TV pick up a book.
There are many many good books and I've done a video recently where I will do a video actually rather that's going to talk about the three most important Financial books that I've read. So keep an eye out for that, but seriously, like seriously truly truly truly get serious. You're an adult period No One's Gonna Take care of you.
And if you want to pursue if you want to achieve what you want in life, you gotta pursue it relentlessly every single day. You're not prioritizing yourself in life. a very important question I encourage you to ask yourself today is. What do I want in life and if things don't come? Like a rushing wind Tantra that question.
I'd encourage to put a piece of paper and a pen turn off everything go completely dead silent for an hour and see what comes to mind. Because the reality is if you don't know the target you're aiming. Then how are you ever going to know you've achieved it? Most people I see aren't someone else's path?
They happen the car in the passenger seat with somebody else and let them choose the path whether it be your parents your spouse your children or just terrible or Society take back the wheel and start figuring out what you actually desire and want to achieve in this life. And once you get that meaning in life who the satisfaction comes in abundance, and not that I feel that every single second.
But I have some meaning in this life and I really feel a lot of satisfaction and nothing feel. I know I'm satisfied and that satisfaction is keeping me going every single day you're surrounding yourself with leeches and I don't mean the kind and the Amazon River, although that would really suck.
I'm talking about the people who are around you if people around you who you would consider your friends buddies girlfriends, whatever it may be. If they're leaching off of you not just for money, which is a quick easy thing that the easy thing to see but leeching off energy and time yucky out cut cut snip snip snip it off.
You don't need them. You don't need them. It's so much better to have people around you who are encouraging you and sharpening you that's the thing you want a little contention a little bit of friendly competition. In a relationship whether it be romantic or friendship because the reality is if someone just rub your back and says you're doing okay you're doing all right.
You're good. Just the way you are. No, you might be doing. Okay, maybe doing all right. However, you're not good. Just the way you are a friend comes alongside you and says, let's get better together. There's something so powerful about the word. Let's let us do this together we. Let's do it together.
It's so much pop more powerful than you do it. You you it doesn't work like that. We're communal beings. Let's get it. Let's do it together. Someone's taking out the Vitality energy and vibrancy of your life. I would think two three four five times. Nothing very long to figure out whether you want to cut that person or not, which is not fun.
Not fun at all. Especially if they're friends from high school or from childhood or the friends you've had for a long time. It's difficult to cut the tie however four-year benefit and there's ultimately it's better to see that if there's not a healthy give-and-take of sharpening one another and you guys are just complaining buddies or that you are they're venting vacuum.
You just vacuum all they're venting. That person is not healthy for your life and it's not going to help you achieve what you want to achieve so cut him loose take the leeches off and throw them back on the River where they belong you're saying. Yes to everything. Yes. Yes. Yes your yes ma'am. It's a great movie.
By the way. It's a very very revealing into how almost all of us are. Yes, man's Yes, Men or yes women. Stop being so agreeable stop. Again, let's go back to a point I go you're hopping in someone else's car and it's just where do you want to eat? Yeah, that's good. That's good. That's good. That's good.
That's good. Agreeableness is a good thing. However, we've taken it so far to the other realm that people are now agreeable with what they're going to do in their future. That sucks my heart breaks for you in an air that. I want you to choose what you want and actually find out what you really really want.
Not just what your employer your spouse your parents have set up for your life because if you don't figure out what you're going to want what you do want what you're going to accomplish in life. You're gonna hop in somebody else's car and they're going to make call all the shots. So the thing to fix this is say no and stick to it.
I say no to about 85% of things. I'm asked to do. However, the 15% I agree. Are very very enjoyable. I might get my full energy and full effort to when I'm there or doing it 85% know if your flip-flop no wonder you're so tired. No wonder you're so resentful towards people. No wonder so learn to say no set firm boundaries and stick to them don't compromise.
The worst thing you can do is set a promise to yourself. Like I'm going to go to bed at 9:30 tonight. So I can go to the gym tomorrow morning and really do what I want to do and then someone says let's go out tonight and stay out till midnight, which I don't say but that's the Assumption if you say yes to that and don't say yes to your goal.
Don't say yes to what you know, you really want to do you broke your promise when someone breaks promises guess what would begin to trust them less and less and less until I trust is completely eroded and go. So be your best friend in that capacity and have a firm boundary and when you start setting from boundaries and saying no to things your friends people around you would do one of two things first one.
They're going to really really develop a mutual respect towards you and understand that. All right, their life does not revolve around me and I can respect that the respect your time and your energy and you as a person in general or. They will attempt to help you revert back into the old ways which you don't want to do and the likes of your life.
If you don't revert if you don't succumb to the pressure of but we always do this. This is how it's always done. Well, sometimes things need to radical change to really make things better for the future and this is a radical change for it. I know I did for myself and saying no has been one of the greatest things because really in yours when you're saying no you're saying yes to something else when I'm saying no to leeches I'm saying yes to my development my health and what's going to be accomplished with myself?
And that is a beautiful thing. Those are all super serious things which is really important. I think getting series of Life Is a Good Thing life isn't a big joke. Although at times. It's very very comical. But the last one is laugh at yourself when you fail when you fall in life fall forward. Don't fall back.
Fall forward don't fall back when you have I love this little graphic my put it up when you have failures in life, put them higher and higher and higher and lock them like a stair. I staircase as opposed to taking the failure and throw it behind you. What those failures? Help you in your Consciousness going forward.
The failures are not a bad thing. They're simply a reminder that you're human that you make mistakes. And now, you know from feedback whether it be internal external whether something is going to work out or not. So you can take that that didn't work. Let's add that to the failure staircase and keep on going higher and higher and higher and eventually the failures will create the success.
Don't make the same mistake twice. Which if you continue putting your failures Higher and Higher and helping yourself Step Up level up in life more or less your failures will actually be a good thing and you'll pursue the failure which you'll pursue the opportunity to help yourself grow, which a lot of times ends up in Failure you will fail and I have failed far more than we are going to succeed and that's a good thing.
That means we're refining more and more and more every single time. So those are my. Seven reasons you might be broke and I don't do this with the pointing finger at you because a lot of times I need to do these more I need to set from her boundaries. I need to throw out leeches. I need to stop buying clothing.
That's my thing at last and I put this Willie at myself all the time. Look at myself in the mirror and say am I satisfied with the decision of the answer is no I don't do it. But what else is there?
