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.

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.

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.

A Non-Negotiable Freedom

 

Everyone is not for you and you are not for everybody. At some point in your life you grow up, grow apart and you become your own person. Yet, those who care stay around and those who don't really didn't care at all.

The cool thing about being free is we all have choices and we make them every day. You can choose to stay with people for comfort or you can choose to go where you can grow. Freedom takes you out of your comfort zone and shows you a different world that only you can imagine. Freedom also comes with a cost. You will be judged, talked about, hated, misunderstood and predicted for doom.

Slash Cable or Satellite Bill in Half

But in the end, the only thing that matters is you were free to do you and be you and that is the most valuable form of freedom there is. As Harriett Tubman once said, "I would have freed thousands more if only they knew they were slaves." Don't be enslaved into the ideas of others because they can't accept the Freedom you live. #RealTalkDialogue

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.

How to Improve the POWER of You!

 

On a daily basis individuals are searching for secrets to health, wealth and happiness. In this search, they neglect key indicators that could be the stumbling blocks to success. Most don’t understand the simple aspect of recognizing who they are and what contributions they can make at improving their own personal life. It’s not a secret, but the catch many are missing is understanding self. Once this is understood, you would then have the knowledge to be both successful in personal and business relationships. Like everything leading to success, this begins with a plan.  Whether you’re anticipating improving your relationship with your spouse or family member, or move up the corporate ladder, this is all a result of personal growth. Individual growth starts with doing your best at every moment, in your career, home, or daily activities. Setting goals, no matter how small, enables you to soar to new heights and give you the confidence to accomplish more.

Many times, individuals stay hung up on other people’s expectations on what it is to be successful without factoring in their wants and desires.  Each of us has another idea of what makes us content.  It's important to acknowledge that if you spend most of your time and effort trying to reach another person’s goals, then you will find yourself perpetually searching for your life meaning and you will continue to be distressed.  Recognizing what is important is the first step to improving your personal life.

Balance is a key factor to a successful life. Some individuals don't see the concept of success beyond their own needs.  Frequently we're caught up in serving a dominant function, which overshadows our natural strengths. This results in stress and imbalance in your life. Learning to do things for yourself and your own needs are vital to improving your personal life. If you're always doing for others and seldom take time out for you, then you're building stress rather than improving your life. Your happiness should come first. It’s quite difficult to make others happy if you are unhappy yourself. Finding it hard to say no to others becomes more common and you will find yourself so engulfed by the needs of others, you forget you have needs too. This is a common human trait. You must learn to have an even balance in your life with everything you do and center on what you want. It’s not selfish, but necessary to live a stress free, purpose filled life.

Putting yourself down consistently, finding it hard to accept compliments and wishing you were someone else are simple examples that you may be sabotaging your life into depression. Encouraging positive self-talk with yourself and to other people, not speaking negative about yourself and other people are vital to establishing personal self-pride. Understanding that no matter what, you're ok with you. Improving your self-confidence is extremely important when improving your personal life. This will require putting your positive beliefs in perspective and making it a priority. Day after day you must work on removing the negative thoughts and the limiting self-beliefs you have grown accustomed to hearing. Believing in you is medicine to your soul and the cure you need to succeed.

Surround yourself with encouraging and motivating people. Discouraging people have an opposite agenda of what you need in your life and you must recognize who they are immediately. By taking small steps to do these things, you will begin improving your personal life without even realizing it. The key to success is to be constantly moving toward and forward in your goals. Learn steps to move ahead, stop looking back and refuse to be a victim of your past. Even though the past is important, you want to avoid lingering over past mistakes. Your mistakes should be learning tools and stepping stones towards your constant progress. Use them, learn from them and move ahead without hesitation.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?" Marianne Williamson

 

In essence, when you surround yourself with positive influences, it helps you to gain the power of processing and focusing in on your life. You deserve to have control. Don’t allow others to define your existence or claim your life’s purpose. Work hard on being a better, in control you in all you do. Some people will come and others will go. Nevertheless, understand who you are and don’t give anyone authority to define you in any of life’s capacity without your authorization. People can’t make you feel bad unless you give them permission.

Here's PROOF! Your Wealth is in YOUR Hands

Most don't understand the system of money creation. It's deeper than what most think. Society tells us one thing, religion tells us another and a philosophical perspective convinces us that it's too confusing. This episode will give you documented proof as to your desires regarding wealth. You can either believe it or not. The choice is yours.

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...

5 Checkpoints of Change in your Career

Don’t FEAR change!! No matter how you feel about it, change is an inevitable part of our lives. It can be controllable, but for most, they are at the mercy of change. Learning how to accept it, embrace it and roll with the bumps and bruises of it makes you not only resilient, but capable of bouncing back sooner. Creating goals is something that should remain a constant in your life, whether you use them to plan your career, start a project or start a new life. Goal setting helps us see more clearly where we need to go and what we need to do to make that happen. Follow these 5 tips to help you gain perspective in your career and be an agent of change. 1. Seriously evaluate your reasons for wanting to change careers or get promoted in your current position. Ask yourself honestly if you want to change because you don’t like your job, because you don’t like your employer, or because you have an interest in gaining new skills and abilities and expanding your horizons. The last reason is the best reason to make a change. 2. Gain any additional training or education you need to realize a smooth transition into a new position or employment opportunity. If you don’t know what the educational requirements are for a new opportunity, then find out. Visit the BLS http://www.bls.gov to find out what the job requirements, educational requirements and salary are for the job or career field you intend to enter.

3. If changing careers, know that you may have to start from the ground up. This may mean a salary cut. If you know you will have to take a reduction in salary, then make up for it by finding a way to budget your expenses until your salary catches up with you. You should also evaluate whether you can afford changes to your salary. Hopefully, a career transition will eventually (or immediately in many cases) result in an increase, rather than decrease in salary. 4. If you plan to leave your current employer, always be sure to give them advance notice so they have time to find a replacement if necessary. This is especially true of highly technical jobs, where it can be hard to find someone on short notice and train them well enough to do the job right. You never want to burn bridges because you never know what may come out of change. 5. If you are confident that you want to change careers but aren’t sure of what you want to do, consider going into business for yourself. Evaluate your skills, abilities and talents. Look at your financial situation and assess your management and organizational skills. Many people have hopes of one day creating their own business. Now may be the time to do this. Just be sure you prepare for a big change like this by researching the home business process before you leap right in and quit your job. Many people who decide to start their own business end up keeping their jobs and working on their business part time during their off hours. This is a good way to give you time to wet your feet and get a feel for whether a home business is something you really want to start. This will also allow you time to evaluate whether you can really make enough money from it to support your family if need be.

No matter what decisions you make, when career planning for change it is important you always take your time to evaluate and analyze your decisions from numerous levels and perspectives. Always keep in mind that the grass may not be greener on the other side. Yet you will never know if it is or not if you don’t at least take a closer look. Never make decisions in the heat of the moment and always be sure to research your alternatives and new occupations before you leap right in. If you consider all options and clearly observe your goals and objectives, you will realize and reap much success in your career planning journey.

struggle Today.... I'm in the mode of delete and redirect!! Sometimes in life, one must focus in on what counts no matter how much it costs. This is my message to my new coaching clients that entrust me with their challenge. As I minister to you, I minister to myself.

I just love me too much to give up my happiness and what God intends for my good. It may be difficult for you to understand and don't take it personal. The bridge that I'm crossing is not sturdy enough to carry a load.

Start a Business with Little Capital

"Many people work the business wrong, then claim the business is wrong when it doesn’t work.” - Len Clements, Founder & CEO of MarketWave, Inc.

“Don’t hate what you don’t understand” - John Lennon

Most people dream of starting their own business, but most don’t have enough capital to do so. The most popular business in America is McDonald’s. It has a recognizable name and most everyone has eaten at one. To become a franchisor, the company requires a minimum of $750,000 of non-borrowed personal resources to consider you for a franchise. The average person doesn’t have that so they continue to look for something that they can afford. The reality, most brick and mortar highly profitable franchises are going to cost a significant amount of money to start. They are also going to require liquid assets and a book of financials to offer you the opportunity. Not to mention, the fees you will pay to use and profit from their name.

If you still are interested in becoming a business owner, may I suggest you consider multi-level marketing? The reason multi-level marketing or MLM’s are so popular is because of its low cost to become a business owner, the ability to work from home and the reality that you can run your own business from anywhere in the country. It literally is considered a franchise with little to no fee and the rewards are astronomical. Your small join or sign -up fee is buying a piece of a company, just like a franchise, that was started by someone else. You buy the opportunity to market the business, be the CEO of your own organization, use the products and even more, partner with other business leaders and earn an income while doing so. This income can be as large or small as you want. Depending on your efforts, your ability to learn and be coachable, you determine your growth from there. Now I must be honest and say this is not so easy to do. Just like owning a brick and mortar franchise, you must put in the work in order for it to be successful. This is the main reason why most don’t succeed at Multi-Level Marketing.

If you are considering an MLM home based business? It could be a very lucrative home based business option for you, but you should also know exactly whether or not what you are getting into is truly an MLM home based business or something else. Plus, you need to weigh out the positives and negatives of an MLM home based business before you decide that it is the right business for you.

Making sure you are actually getting involved in an MLM home based business, or multi-level marketing home based business, is important to save yourself some difficulties later. An MLM home based business involves the direct selling of products or services through the recommendations or endorsements of independent representatives/distributors. So, if you are the representative, you receive a commission on any sales that came from your endorsements. Also understand that most products sold through an MLM home based business are not necessarily advertised through mainstream media or in stores. They are considered specialty items and typically can only be purchased through you.

The confusing part of determining if your MLM home based business is legitimate is that there are a number of pyramid schemes out there that are dangerously similar to legitimate MLM home based business concepts. Remember, a pyramid scheme is illegal, and getting involved in one can cause you more trouble that it is worth. You will need to do your research into any MLM home based business that you are considering so that you are sure the MLM home based business you are going to run is valid and legal. Usually, if your investment in proportionate to the product or service you are selling, your MLM home based business will probably be valid.

There are a number of advantages to having an MLM home based business. First of all, you will be working from home where you can virtually set your own hours, which is probably why you are considering an MLM home based business in the first place. Also, you will not have to manufacture (profit saver) any products, because you are usually selling things that are already made and the MLM home based business will usually come with a pre-determined marketing plan. Many people suffer through the process of determining the most effective methods for marketing their products, but with an MLM home based business, you are relieved of that stress. Consider it a business in a box with all the bells and whistles.

The disadvantages of having your own MLM home based business, though, depends a bit on your personality. If you have good leadership skills and are as self-starter, then an MLM home based business will pose little hardship to you. However, if recruiting and selling gives you hives, then starting and maintaining an MLM home based business may be more of a challenge, since your success depends on your ability to be proactive in the business by possibly recruiting and selling your products/services.

Still, having your own MLM home based business means that you can live out your dream of being your own boss, having flexibility in your work schedule and create an extra stream of income that could possibly replace your current one. The cool thing is, you do not need any prior experience unlike most high paying jobs. You can rely on your personality, your desire to learn and your ability to share information as the benchmark to maintain your business.

Just like corporate America, MLM organizations look for leaders. Those individuals who have a desire to exceed expectations, help the organization grow and develop a rewarding lifestyle doing so. Still, do your research to make sure your MLM home based business is a legal business so that you can truly enjoy the true freedom that the MLM home based business offers. There are many opportunities to create the income and the life you deserve if you are willing to put in the sweat equity and work.

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!
