As a parent I feel very responsible for guiding our children trough life. In nice situations is not hard to do that.
I love to teach them how they should pet a cat and how they can brush their own teeth 🙂 . But learn how to deal with death
and losing a beloved person of cancer is also part of my (& Dirk’s) responsibility.
Right now my stepmother is living in a hospice, dying from cancer. My dad is is sitting right next to her day in day out, trying to keep up with the speed of death.
I really cannot change this situation. But I do have influence in the way our kids develop a healthy grieving process.
I discovered this great book that’s perfect for small children to read them. It’s called ”Badger’s parting gifts”, written by Susan Varley. But also ”grownups” like our 10 year old daughter Sem likes to listen to the story of the badger.
So if you need a good idea for yourself
or for somebody you know, who’s in the same situation of losing someone your children love. Share this blogpost with them on social media!
Read your kids books like this one! Help them deal with all aspects of life, like death……..
We’re so thankful that we can be there for our children, because we do not have to be at work
far away from our children’s lives 5 days of the week. &
Very thankful that our businesses are running amazingly well, thanks to the online marketing we take action with in a blogging community we joined a while ago.
Dirk and I are committed to share with you
what we know about creating an online business, and seeing as many parents come home as possible….. To be able to read their kids books every day, to spend lot’s of time with them to guide them through life not only 2 days a week, but 7!!
If you are ready to learn about making your online business a success, so you are the boss of your own time and
work around the schedules of your kids….
It is all about the way you look at things how you define perception
There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.
It’s your choice.
There is no truth. There is only perception.
Disability is a matter of perception. If you can do just one thing well, you’re needed by someone.
If you thinks you can’t do something, just change your perception.
Perception is created and twisted so quickly.
Louis C. K.
You are in control.
if you think that there is no way out, it’s all about perception.
Listen daily to positive audios.
The things you listen to, the things you read and the people you spend the most time with determine what your perception is about the world around you.
While I was reading the book ”Awaken the Giant within” by Anthony Robbins, I almost fell of my chair when I discovered one of the secrets for achieving success in business!
Also did I discovered what I did VERY wrong ….. trying to become successful with making money online. But now I know 🙂 how to take action.
And you can learn it as well, because it’s simpler than you ever imagined!
Well, here is your answer:
Guess you never thought about asking the right questions to achieve the success you always dreamed about!?
You really have to ask questions that triggers your brain to find the answers that will help you achieve your goals! By asking clear and deep questions, your thoughts, feelings and actions will focus on what you ask.
So never ask questions like: ”Why am I so lonely”? Then, your brain will focus on that answer and find references to back up the idea that there is a reason that you’re lonely.
Do ask :” How can I make a new friend this week”? And your brain computer will trigger all your senses to find the answers.
Of course it’s also the art to be able to recognize the answers and how to take action. Therefore you must stay concentrated on your goals.
Write them down, say them to yourself daily, loudly, visualize them, believe in them!
Our brain is an amazingly beautiful
programmed computer. Use it well!
A few weeks ago I went to visit a friend who lives a one hour train ride from where we live. Of course I won’t judge, but when I arrived on that train station around 6 pm I was shocked. Thousands of people rushing to get home or where ever they were going.
I, who has always been a restaurant owner, usually never travel around these hours. Same as going to an IKEA on a Saturday, some things you just don’t do.
But there are always these moments that you either end up in traffic or in a big store.
It just looks and feels like the biggest rat race there is.
This is what wikipedia has to say about the rat race
“A rat race is an endless, self-defeating, or pointless pursuit. It conjures up the image of the futile efforts of a lab rat trying to escape while running around a maze or in a wheel.”
I stood aside and stead watching the crowd passing by.
The next question raised to my mind; “how to get out of the rat race“?
The majority of the people are stuck.
As explained in the video
broke people getting broker,
middle class people remain stressed out
and how rich people getting richer.
In order to get out of the rat race, you have to understand how people spend their money.
Before we begin, a few important financial terms:
Cashflow = money you bring in
Expenses = money you spend Assets = something that pays you Liabilities = somethings that cost you.
How the broke spend their money
I don’t mean the homeless people or something like that, but the majority of people that live from paycheck to paycheck and never seem to have any money left. There is usually more month left then money. unfortunately, many can relate to that.
On pay day broke people buy “stuff”. Things that are cheap, that you don’t really need. These are called “expenses”
Broke people never really educate themselves on assets and liabilities. They can justify buying the stuff by claiming it costs so little.
Over the years that is all they have “stuff” The problem is that there cash flow never produced or created more cashflow.
There is no judging here, but there are a lot of financial problems that are not really necessary.
Creating wealth isn’t a mystery, it’s a formula. The only reason that someone is not creating wealth is either someone don’t know the formula or they don’t apply the formula.
How the middle class spend their money
This is the group of people that society mistakenly things are rich. Yes they often have a six figure income and many of them appear rich, but that is only on the outside.
But it is what they buy with all that money that keeps them prisoners of the middle class.
The middle class spend their money on liabilities. Things that cost you money.
Like boats, cars, houses, airplanes and credit card debts.
It’s often the extra expenses that are the problem. you do a down payment for the car. That’s oké, but then there is insurance, maintenance and gas etc etc. And those extra costs are extra expenses, maybe put on a credit card. Book a holiday on there credit card or a new Rolex watch.
In the end the expenses are equal or more then the cash flow coming in.
Meaning that they have to go to work in order make more money just to cover there liabilities.
Another important issue with both broke and the middle class is that their cash flow is depending on their own effort.
Meaning that they educated themselves to exchange their knowledge and expertize for someones money. And most of the times the money they make is the highest taxed form of income.
How do the rich spend their money
Rich people acquire assets. And an asset is something that pays you.
If you want to get rich. Buy assets that earn you more money.
The circle looks like this.
From the cashflow you buy assets. And from the profits you buy more assets and so on and so on.
The rich spend their money on things that produce more money.
Like: Stocks, bonds, Real Estate, but also education is a great asset.
If you learn something that produces more money for you, consider it an asset.
There is this famous quote, maybe you heard it before.
“If you think education is expensive, try stupidity.”
So….How to get out of the rat race
Investing in your education is the most valuable asset you can acquire. If you belong to the “broke people” there is no room for big investments in stock or Real Estate.
But education is something where you can start with little money.
Educate yourself, learn how to think differently, bigger. Learn how to be successful. If you go here, you’ll get to see what brought us the success we wanted.
This is the place where we started our education. The trainings provided taught us everything there is to know to start making money online.
With that money we bought the necessary assets to create more cashflow.
And of course if you can do all this with your passion, great.
Did you know that the way we got out of the race started online? We learned how to make money online. Our biggest asset now is a smart system that automated our business makes us money instead of costing.
But, I hear you thinking “yeh right, sure you do”
Well, I can tell you this, if you keep saying that than nothing ever will change. so if you are happy in your rat race, by all means stay there.
And when you had enough and you want do the things you really want to do in live.
