Beware: Keep a Green Life

When I was younger I loved watching Popeye the Sailor man. He was my hero. Not only was he strong, he also loved Olive Oyl. 

Just like Olive Oyl, I was skinny. I didn't eat anything green as I thought all of it was gross. Besides, who thought of health back then. I was a picky eater. I ate the same foods with no variety. Chicken was and still is my favorite. Nevertheless, I had to eat whatever was cooked regardless of being picky or not. It was not an option in my house.

As an adult, I choose what I want to eat with options.  And of course I now pay attention to being healthy. I watch, I read, I listen and I adhere to how important it is to keep it green in your life. 

Today I live green. It is a daily part of my diet. Even if I don't like it, I make myself eat it because of the health benefits of green.

Popeye had spinach to be strong. Today nutritionist state not only will you be strong, but you will help fight disease by eating spinach because it is full of antioxidants. 

Spinach can be eaten raw or cooked. More vitamins are preserved if eaten raw. I often put spinach in smoothies, on sandwiches and in my veggie dishes. Anyway you eat it or drink it, you can't go wrong.

Being a #purposedwoman requires you to take care of yourself first. As we know it to be true, women take care of everyone as well and sometimes before themselves.

So here's to a healthy lifestyle and healthy eating. May we prosper in a life full of green.

The Paycheck Scenario

On this day, many are blessed to receive a check and many are not due to circumstance. A check has become the staple in the household. With a check, one can not only enjoy the varried necessities, but the estravagant wants we all crave as well. 

A check has many limitations just as it has opportunities.

It's important to understand that if that check is not available due to job layoff, firing, company closing, job transfer, personal disability, illness or any other devestating life altercation, you and your family can be left at the hands and mercy of need. This can be catastrophic on so many levels.

The reality is there are a lot of people who are one paycheck away from being homeless and hungry. 

What would you do if you allowed yourself to be put in that situation? Yes... I said allowed. When you put all your eggs in one basket without being open to other options to keep yourself out of that situation, you allowed it to happen. 

Most get comfortable in their current situation and don't think about the possibility of having to be uncomfortable if something happens.

Do you currently have a savings, retirement and emergency plan that you feel comfortable with if you were put in an uncomfortable situation? 

The truth of the matter is many Americans state they are worse off than they were in previous years. According to a consumer sentiment survey, 40% state that they are living paycheck to paycheck. 39% state they fear losing their jobs. These are some startling numbers that seem to be the same if not worse.

So now that you are aware of these facts, does that change your perception of how important a check is to you and your family? If it does or if it doesn't, the point was to enlighten you. 

Unfortunately, many wait until a situation happens before they react. Then they are often pressured with stress, frustration and possible health issues.

I personally am working on being more proactive versus reactive. This response has afforded me the opportunity to have choice. 

If you are interested in speaking further about the many options to diversify your options and income, connect with me and lets collaborate. I love sharing information and great ideas. 

Well that's all for now. I hope you found this information enlightening and worthy of thinking about.

If you are social, connect with me on Instagram, Periscope & Twitter @NichelleWomack. I would love to meet you. 

Toodles... and happy weekend! Do something worth remembering. 

Blessings,

5 Obstacles That May Be Blocking Your Success

family-619570_1280.jpg

Most obstacles that confront us deal with fear, confusion, lack of knowledge, not enough money or negative self-talk. No matter what you do, obstacles will find you and attempt to block your success. It's important to understand that you have more authority over the situation than you think. Your thought process and how you react to the situation will enable you to be proactive versus reactive and achieve your goals in spite of. These 5 steps will serve as a reminder that when obstacles appear because they will, not only will you be prepared, you will persevere. 1. Rejection - this is a situation most of us have faced. It tends to hurt and make us feel incompetent in what it is we are trying to pursue. However, if you view rejection as a possibility of opportunity and a learning experience for growth, you will be less reluctant to allow rejection to hold you back.

2. Inadequacy - the feeling of not being as good as others can be a severe obstacle in achieving success. Understand that we all have different gifts and skills that make us unique and one of a kind. There is no need to compare yourself to others. Do what you know how to do and be willing to learn more. Strategically separate yourself from others and learn to competent in what you bring to the table.

chain-1027864_1920

3. Assumption - We assume that things are the same and typically we already have it figured out how it will end. Therefore you change nothing but expect different results. This is the definition of insanity with a super sense of hyper exaggeration. Be willing to get help and seek a new perspective.

pin-board-978197_1280

4. Perfection - Many struggle with it everyday and it is a true reality. In fact, it is the life support of many failed dreams. As long as you seek things to be perfect, you will never get anything accomplished. Instead of perfection, strive for progress and determination. You will find that your results become focused and your ability to complete a task becomes real.

board-786119_1920

5. Security - Most people rely on the security of one thing or another in order to get them through. Security is something that is not assured. Therefore, instead of growing dependent, become independent in yourself and your skills. Nothing is guaranteed but life and death. Find strategies and solutions that will allow you to not only survive but thrive when things seem bleak.

When Your Passion is Your Determination

Before I realized what I enjoyed, I was just a part of a system. My fear of stepping off the cliff into deeper territory always came with rejection, self-doubt and confusion.There is also a risk of uncertainty. Nevertheless, I decided that if I wanted to live in my purpose, that risk was worth taking. What am I here for and what will it take for me gain clarity? Those who have never risked anything have never done anything. In my journey, I have realized that the real risk is doing nothing. In taking that risk, I've learned the following things.

1. You have no problem working overtime.  When you enjoy what you do, time is not an issue nor a worry. You take pride in what you do and you work until the task is completed. No exceptions!

2. You are constantly seeking ways to make it better. Unfortunately, when you are passionate about something, you may run into perfection. This perfection can hold you back from many things. I have found when I don't commit to perfection, not only do I get more done, but I accomplish more towards my goals.

3. You get up early and go to bed late. Again, time is of the essence for you to accomplish your goals. Therefore, neglecting of oneself may take place. It's important to keep your health in check because if your heatlh isn't right, your passion may never get accomplished. Sleep is essential to success. Yet, those who live in their passion find early mornings and late nights a normal way of life and their body and life adjust to it..

4. You don't mind being corrected or misunderstood. When you are passionate about something, it will take over your life. Therefore, it's important to find balance in what you do. If given advice, it must be looked at objectively and subjectively. Is it best for you or will it deter your plans towards your goal? People always misunderstand what they are not familiar with. You personally must be clear on what it is you are attempting to achieve and why.

5. You are willing to let everything that attempts to hold you back go. You are focused on your goals and accomplishments. Everything that is going on around you isn't important unless it involves you working in your passion. Hanging out use to be your lifestyle. Now you see a greater vision that can't be separated by nonsense. A lack of focus no longer exist. If it doesn't improve you mentally, doesn't uplift you spiritually or help you make more money, you literally find no need to be involved.

The evolution of change and divine order always has a purpose in our life. Whether we pay attention to the instructions or not, somehow it will haunt us unconditionally until we take notice. When you are determined to achieve and your passion gives you energy, stay focused and press on.

I am Nichelle Womack, your life transition, and business strategist. I aim to make you think through your thoughts, live without excuses and create a life filled with happiness, success, and financial reward.

5 "Must Do" Items When Starting a Business

Starting a business can be challenging in more than one way. The biggest struggles most complain about are of the availability of money, the use of time and how much or how little to network for business.  Most importantly, when starting your business, you need to specialize your priorities. By placing emphasis on these priorities, it will ensure the success of your home business. Listed below are 5 strategies you can implement immediately.

Need a Landing Page that Converts? Check this out!Need a Landing Page that Converts? Check this out!

  1. Clarify the culture of your business.

This sets the tone of how you will do business in and out of the home. If you are consistent with passion and enthusiasm in what you do, you will more than likely create an environment that is exciting and comfortable to be a part of. With that culture set in place, you will be able to impress and attract clients with your enthusiasm and passion for the business that you are doing. Having an enthusiastic side will draw in the clients and give you a huge competitive edge over other more established companies.

2. Value your time and demand it from others as well

When people know you are self-employed, they seem to believe you have time for everything they don't have time for. You must make others value your time. Time is of the essence daily and you need to mandate that in what you do. Losing track of time is an easy trap to fall into when you are working from home. Never put off what you have to do today for tomorrow. Set a timeline of what you have to do and set a daily goal each day for you to do. It would be helpful if you set a time period each day to work in your home business. Establish a routine so that you and others in the home are accustomed to your working hours. Schedule start time, lunch, breaks and ending time just as if you were working for someone else.

3. Don’t be afraid to ask for sponsorship.

Starting a business can be costly. Especially if you are not prepared for unexpected cost. If you haven’t already saved money for your business venture, which is highly suggested, sponsorship is a great alternative. The good thing about working out of your home, you don’t have as many expenses as working from a brick and mortar establishment. Sponsorship can be done in various ways. Try crowdfunding, fundraising, small investors, local advertisement, family and friend contribution, etc. Sponsorship will come in handy when business is just starting out. It will enable you to get the supplies and other business necessities in advance without going too deep in debt starting off.

 4. Make networking a daily event.

Make it a priority to connect via social media, on the phone and in person. In the first year of your home business, it is important to develop new relationships and meet as many new people as you can. You can’t wait for a connection to happen by itself, you must be proactive. This may mean some aggressive movement of your own as well as getting out of the house to make it happen. It would not be out of order to start with a goal of connecting with at least 50 potential clients on a daily basis. Social media makes this easy. Also, sign up for meetups that are complementary to what you do.

5. Remain balanced in your life and business.

During the first year of business is when you set the tempo of your business. Don’t go into your new business working up to 18 hours a day, every single day. You need to give yourself a break or else you will quickly get burned out. Balance your business life with some family time or a hobby. Just remember, you determine how successful your home business is based on how much work, time and energy you put into it.

The Missing "Link" to YOUR Success

Is there a magic formula to success? Is it trial and era? Is it the pull of a lucky straw and waaalaaa... Everything you want is granted to you. Most successful people will tell you that it took and takes long hours, tears and sweat in order to reach the level of success you desire.

Whether it's spending years in school to acquire the knowledge or years in the workplace getting the hands on experience, your success is completely dependent on your desires and expectations.

4 Types of Human Hunger

“Making money isn't hard in itself,what's hard is to earn itdoing something worth devoting your life to” ― Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Thought of the day...

A question on the panel in #PlentifulLiving101. There are 4 types of hunger where people are striving to be fed.

1. Money - people need more of it. Something is always due or overdue. You fake the funk and rob Peter to pay Paul then go about it as if nothing is wrong with your right. You live in a fantasy because reality is too scary for sight.

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. –Benjamin Franklin

2. Time - not enough of it exist. Work 8 hours to come home and prepare for tomorrow. You're too tired to do anything else but complain you don't have time. Waiting for Friday to eventually realize that it's Monday already and you're back to the same routine.

TIme quote 3. Security - nothing is guaranteed but life and death. I hate to inform you, but that good job isn't either. Don't be fooled and retire with just a pen. You better hope your 401K is still in tact. You should be accountable to you and everything else should be secondary. It ain't like it used to be and if it was, don't you want to be FREE.

“If a company won't hire you, why don't you start your own company? Steve Jobs created jobs, he didn't apply for them. #Startup your dreams.” Jarod Kintz

Dave Ramsey Quote 4. Spirituality - without it, people are misguided, mislead, misdirected and confused. They focus on external connections versus internal. When spirituality approaches them, they take credit for them being relieved for all of the problems above. Nothing can be done without a great relationship with the supplier. For HE provides a way to get through and be open to something new.

“Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love, Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved, as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive, It is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.” ― Francis of Assisi

 

Nevertheless, the combination of money, time, security and spirituality can cause one to think long and hard or just continue going about their daily routine of existing and not living. All are needed to survive and thrive. At some point, one must have a conversation with self. Be real!! If there is lack, increase won't take place until you take action and move in a different direction in one or all areas of your life. Is it time to get busy?

“Always be smarter than the people who hire you.” ― Lena Horne

Choosing a Mate That is Right for You

Don't forget to LOVE yourself..

Finding someone to share your life with can be a challenge. Often times we look in all the wrong places and eventually get stuck with leftovers or trash that is difficult to be disposed of. Love and relationships are two different things. You must ask yourself, which one do you want. In choosing, make certain that you have the time that is needed to invest in what it is you want. Before you can give of yourself, make certain you are confident in what it is you’re expecting and what it is you want to receive. Have some type of idea of the relationship you are looking for because this is the first step of valuing your time and that of others. Are you seeking a casual companion, a weekend lover or someone to spend the rest of your life with? Develop an idea of what you would call a great mate. While some might say that this limits your choices way too much, it's possible to both know what you're looking for and be open to something else.

Love pic1 The most tangible aspect is that you don’t have to settle. The secret sauce in finding a companion is in putting together a list of characteristics of your ideal mate and how you think about that list once you develop it. If you see every characteristic on it as absolutely necessary, you might miss out on meeting a wonderful person. After all, no one is perfect, but someone is perfect for you. If, on the other hand, you see your list as a set of guidelines, having it can help you choose the relationships you do and do not want to pursue. This is critical because far too many people are in a hurry to find a mate without vetting them out. This behavior could lead to all sorts of unhappiness, regret and a possible disaster. Being specific with intention can be beneficial in the long run.

Love make the world go round..

When seeking a relationship, it’s important to identify what you deem as necessary and unnecessary characteristics in a mate. Begin gathering your list by thinking back over past relationships, whether they were romantic in nature or not. Were any fulfilling? Are there any characteristics that other people have that make life incredibly difficult for you? I mean… things that would make you miserable to be around. Or better yet, things that you simply cannot tolerate. In contrast, are there any characteristics that you find absolutely necessary in someone you're going to be close to? Things that make your heart flutter, your mind think and your life better. Now think about some attributes and aspects you would appreciate or admire in a potential new mate. These should be things that make you feel good and enjoy being around this person. Use these components to help get you started, both in making a list of things you want in a mate and in making another one of things that you don't want and refuse to deal with. Anything that comes up in these thought exercises is probably pretty important to you and might even make or break a future relationship. So think long and careful about this process.

Love is bigger than one second, one hour and one day..

Just as you list the necessary and unnecessary components, you must acknowledge the desirable and undesirable characteristics too. After you have your lists of necessary and unnecessary characteristics, think about other aspects of people you've known that you have enjoyed or that have been hard for you to deal with. These may not be quite as important as the things you just listed, but they are aspects of another person that would be nice to have or to simply avoid. You may want to make these into a separate category on your list. That way, you can separate them in your mind from things that are absolutely necessary or to be avoided. Again, thinking long and hard while being aware and conscientious are key to successfully choosing the right mate.

Your CHOICE can make or break you...

You deserve to be picky. But how picky do you deserve to be. For me, being picky is a big deal. Just as I am careful in planning out other events in my life, I will be just as careful in trying to choose someone who is worthy of my time. After all, choice is a personal decision and it can also be a life-long one as well. Now that you have your list in front of you, it's up to you to decide how closely you want to stick with it. Again, it’s your choice! Are the characteristics on the list important enough to you that any perfect mate would have to have all of them? On the other hand, are some of them absolutely essential and others you can live with or without? Know that you are free to make whatever choice you want to in this area. This is your life and you should have a say so. This is your relationship you're considering, so the choices need to be suited to your own preferences and perspectives. In case you are not prepared, remember that choosing to be picky might mean that it is harder to find a mate. No matter how many of these characteristics he or she has, there will still be areas of your relationship that could be difficult in other areas. Relationships should grow. In that process, both of you will change. It is with great hopes that your intentions are to grow together and help each other along the way.

Let me count the ways that I LOVE you...

So, once you've made this decision, don't let anyone persuade you otherwise to sway a different way. As I mentioned, this is your life and you will be the one that has to deal with the consequences of poor choice. No matter how good looking a perfect mate may be, what they drive, their occupation and what they tell you, if they don't have the characteristics you've deemed essential, the relationship probably isn't going to last long. In addition, don't allow friends or family to persuade your decision making towards your ideal mate. Who you date and how you choose them is your choice, not anyone else's. We all have different taste and our personal taste won't be the same as anyone else's. Therefore, relying on their advice and judgement simply will not work. You need to trust your own instincts, needs, desires and preferences when deciding on a mate to add to your life.

Love pic 2 Love is a two-way street. Both parties are supposed to be giving of each other. Even though no relationship is perfect, there is one that is perfect for you. Be fair with yourself and the other person. Know that a relationship or a love that lasts is built on a solid foundation. When a piece of it cracks, both must be willing, ready and able to glue it back together. Love is a beautiful thing. Don’t settle just because you are lonely. Pray about what you are seeking and let the love you are requesting find you.

When LOVE finds you, it's a beautiful thing...

Live in the Purpose of your Prosperity and Abundance

prosperity12

Prosperity is right. Amen. We prosper to prosper others. We prosper to prosper God's kingdom, so come believing. Joseph Prince

Knowing how to attract prosperity can be a challenging aspect. Having the insight and the ability to "know" you're prosperous - even when you don't yet feel like you are can.

When your outer circumstances keep reflecting the illusion of lack or no progression, it's easy to get frustrated because you think your attraction attempts aren't working. However, that very frustration is what will keep you locked into the cycle of lack!

In order to break out of the illusion of lack, you have to use the power of your intuitive perspective to diminish the energy you have invested in it previously. How do you invest energy into the creation of lack? When you consistently dwell on what's not, you will eventually fall into that mindset. In retrospect, there are many ways that may not come to mind that you never think of.

- By constantly thinking about it and focusing on it.

- By constantly affirming that it exists in your life. Be affirmative in your desires and not on your current situation.

-By complaining about it to others, you will eventually learn that people really don't care about your problems and no one wants to be around a complainer. Negative people are draining and purpose destroying.

- By identifying with the lack you see in the world around you, you can connect with needs that you can possibly fulfill. Lack is everywhere and to focus on it makes it more prevalent than it may actually be.

The more energy and attention you give to the existence of lack, the more lack you attract back to yourself. Focus and concentrate on the good.

The good news is that you can also use this same process to attract prosperity and abundance into your life instead of focusing in on the far end of the spectrum!

- Constantly think about and focus on prosperity and abundance. However, be certain to NOT from a place of need, fear or anxiety - but from a sovereign place of joy, confidence and optimism that it is already yours. The mind achieves what it believes and its focus become its direction.

- Make it a daily practice to constantly affirm that you are a natural prosperity magnet and great abundance flows into your life easily and frequently.

- Don't be shy or selfish. Share the wonderful things that happen to you with others. Rather than complaining about the bad stuff, share the good stuff and encourage the people in your life to do the same. It's about attraction!

- Pay close attention to the great abundance that surrounds you at all times. In essence, you don't have to look too far. Most often we miss it and it stares us in the face. This includes the material possessions, people and blessings you currently have in your life, but also the expressions of abundance you encounter while out in the world. Yes... it does exist! Rather than feeling envious of rich and successful people, imagine that the universe has just held up a mirror to let you know that YOU can also be just as rich and successful.

Most importantly, develop the inner "knowing" that you can CHOOSE abundance and prosperity, just as easily as you chose lack and struggle.

You may not believe that you've chosen lack and struggle (who in their right minds would?) - but it's very possible to choose by innocent default. Unless you consciously choose to be prosperous, it's like sitting in the back seat of your car and expecting it to deliver you to your desired destination which will eventually get you no where. Take action and choose to live differently.

Try reciting this affirmation several times a day:

"I KNOW I am a powerful creator in my own right and I CHOOSE the harmonious flow of prosperity and abundance to flow NOW."

When you first start saying it, you'll probably feel like you're lying. That's because deep down inside, you really don't "know" it can happen for you. But keep at it. Keep saying the affirmation with strength and power and conviction in your voice, and you really will start to believe it.

And that's when everything in your outer circumstances will begin to shift toward the prosperity and abundance you "know" you deserve and yes... entitled to receive.

Live a Life Worth Repeating...

Live Life “If you start the day reading the obituaries, you live your day a little differently.”

David Levithan

For some, life zooms past us during our working years at the blink of an eye. Consistently, it’s the same daily aspect of wakening up to go to work, getting off work and turning around doing the same thing the very next day.  It's no big surprise why some ask themselves, "How did I get old so quick? Where did all the time go?" Well… time stands still for no one. Unless you use and make every second count, you will find yourself on the other hand of time with no restart button.

The issue is in the daily routine of work. The human personality has this propensity called deletion. Anything that continues to rehash, the memory does not record. Basically because it’s just not worth considering or remembering for that matter.

So…. how can we respect each experience of time and not neglect your life in the process?

The answer lies in you creating self-care, self-awareness and a desire that dwells deep inside of you. In essence, it is a realistic view of an elevated condition of familiarity with your own consideration, sentiments and daily activities. At the same time in the event that you can't do that yet, you can begin by honing in on these three thought provoking questions.

As you lie in bed and before dosing off, ask and answer these three questions:

  1. What is one thing I am thankful for on this day?
  2. What and how do I anticipate tomorrow?
  3. If I had to choose how my day will go, what would that look like?

I call these straight forward brain teasers that will encourage the beginning of creating something great? All things considered, let me share the rationale behind them. The first question requires you to thoroughly consider your day and discover something you're truly thankful for. As you do that, not only will you discover something to be thankful for, you will likewise have reviewed your whole day from a much larger perspective. In Neuro-Linguistic Programming, we call this recapping an overall perspective and justifying the importance of a circumstance. Try this! Envision placing your everyday experience into a container, put a top on it and then name it, "The Way I View My Life". Having a considerable amount of these containers in your thoughts sorts your memories into noteworthy encounters or folders per se’ instead of having them as one extensive cluster called, "My Life.. How I Hoped it Would Be".

The second question entices you to look forward in time and envision what's going to or what you hope to happen tomorrow. When you have something to anticipate, it makes this characteristic more appealing to the mind and gives you the drive and energy to make it happen. You will feel inspired the minute you wake up. It will be the first thought on your mind and your self-sensor will provoke you to act on it.

The third question uncovers your deepest desires based upon the fact that we typically decide to dream about what we need and wish for. This solidifies your path and reason which later clarifies your desire to want it even more.

If you ask yourself these three questions on a regular basis, you will have a greater respect for the time you have and it won’t seem to fly by. You will begin to focus on the important aspects about your life and have a clear perspective to do what truly matters. Live life intentionally, full of joy and do what makes you happy.

Don't Spend That Refund Check Just Yet!

Calendar - Tax Day Circled

"Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it." -Ronald Reagan

It's tax time again! You may not like this time of year, but many people do. Was saving money, making money or spending money on your list of resolutions for 2015? If so, here's a great opportunity to start the year off right. Don't just talk about it, be about it and just do it! Instead of using your tax refund that you allowed the government to hold all year with no interest to buy something of no value, utilize it to increase your financial portfolio and better the life of yourself and those around you. You will be much better off in the long run and you will reap what you sow. A harvest well planted grows bountiful in rewards. Listed below are 5 things you can do today to increase your net worth.

1. Buy a house. As a homeowner, you get to deduct the interest you pay to the mortgage company. Even though home ownership comes with a lot of responsibility, the good outweighs everything. Instead of being the 3rd party in a transaction, it will be you and the bank. Not you, the landlord and the bank. Home ownership helps you build wealth. You will have an opportunity to build a solid credit history with on time monthly payments.This gives you leverage. If you are renting or leasing, your landlord enjoys this benefit. He/she is basically enjoying the financial rewards of your inability to do this and creating wealth at the same time. Things have changed a lot with buying a home. I suggest you seek a qualified, licensed Realtor and mortgage professional to help you along the way.

2. Start a home-based business. You may feel that starting a business can be costly and overwhelming. Well... you are right for the most part. However, a home based business offers so much more flexibility and are typically less expensive to start versus a brick and mortar type of business. Most home based business owners start while they are still working a job to make ends meet. That's the uniqueness of this type of opportunity. Being a business owner gives you the right to write off expenses while conducting business. It also provides you with another means of income and you are not so dependent on your job. Business owners save an average of $500.00 monthly on their taxes and that's just the tip of the iceberg. That's about 10 to 18 percent. You have the flexibility to do what the average tax payer cannot do which gives you more diversity in your portfolio. You can deduct home office space, utilities, gifts and incentives to name a few. Check with your local tax advisor about the advantages in your state.

3. Invest in stock options. Even though the Dow has its ups and downs, your money has a greater chance to increase versus being placed in a bank account at 0.5% to 2% interest. Search and investigate the companies growth history over the last five years so that you can make a wise decision. Hire a broker if you don't feel comfortable with your knowledge. Join an investment club, watch you-tube videos and read books. There's so much information available at your fingertips about how to build wealth.

4. Pay off credit card debt with the highest interest. Most of your monthly payment is going towards the interest and not the balance. This activity makes it literally impossible to ever pay it off in a reasonable amount of time. Debt is the handicap of wealth. The only way to get rid of it is to stop accumulating it. Credit card debt can be good and bad. Depending on what you are using it for justifies its value.

5. Donate to charity. This is the most rewarding aspect of giving. You haven't been blessed until you can bless someone else. Not only will you impact the lives of others, but you will contribute to your personal well being by utilizing it as a deduction next year to do the same thing again or find a new cause. Find a charity you are passionate about. Utilize its mission to make you a better person. Get involved with the charity and its purpose. Your time and donation will be indispensable to those in need.

I hope you found these five tips worthy. Encourage others to take this challenge. Be the spearhead of this endeavor and watch how your life and your circumstance will change for the better. Not only will you be happier, you will also feel more accomplished. Blessings!
