Success isn't measured in stuff
Last Update: Jun 14, 2017
If you have used Instagram or are a member of groups on Facebook about making money etc online, you will more than likely come across a few folks whose every post is a picture of a case full of cash, an airplane, a bugatti or similarly impressive vehicle. Then a big old quote in fancy writing from a very wealthy successful businessperson.
I don't know about you, but it infuriates me. It is disingenuous.
Success isn't measured in stuff. Its measured in happiness. If you are unhappy, but you have a bugatti, you are still unhappy.
Its a common misconception though isn't it? You will always hear someone commenting on so and so's house and how large it is and how lucky they are and how they'd love to have that sort of money.
when I first started here, as a great number of you will have done also, I added my goals to a post by Kyle. I said I'd be happy with £200.
Yep. That's it.
Why you might ask.
Because I realise that with money comes a different set of problems. Yeah your money issues are over, but other stuff takes its place. I just want to be financially comfortable.
so, why am I here
I'm here because I want to :
- learn new skills
- Have a blog about subjects I love
- Make money on the side to ensure financial security for my family.
I get it you know. I see tesla cars driving down the street and salivate. I've wanted an oled TV for the longest time, but for goodness sake, its a THING.
If my kids and partner are happy, we don't have to stand in a supermarket counting up how much I can spend,that's my job done.
So I guess that's my rant over. In summary, here is the message I'm trying to get across :
Aim to be happy, not to be rich.
