New economy – We are all getting replaced

Time is changing. So is the world. Everything is faster these days. And everything is different too. There is no other place where this development is as obvious as in the job market. With the internet the old economy as we knew it will not exist for to long anymore. Jobs will not be the same because everything today happens in the internet.

The first cars that drive themselves are out already. Meaning that no one will need people to drive a taxi anymore in the near future. You don’t need to pay someone to drive you if the car can do it by itself.

This development happens and will continue to happen everywhere. Why would you go shopping when you can buy everything on the internet?

And the jobs that are still there will be outsourced to people who do a better job for a smaller amout of money.

I hope you learned to fill out documents in your university classes. Because soon you will need this skill to fill out the papers for your unemployment benefits..

We live in a great time. A chaotic time. With as much opportunity as never before. But to get anything out of it you have to change your thinking today and make progress every single day.

The time to take action is now. Take charge of your live and you will accomplish tremendous things.

Building my empire

What have been the magazines now is the blog. What was the Television is now YouTube. It is a new era. Gone are the old times. And this is wonderful. Because everytime there is a new era. There are new ways to make money. Blogging is one of them. Making Videos is one of them. Doing podcasts is one of them. All of it is a fantastic way of making money while simultaniously expressing oneselfs ideas to the world.

There is a concept called You.Inc. Builing the brand of yourself. You are making money with your own Brand. With who you are. I do like this fact a lot. Because I always wanted to get paid for being me. Today I have the opportunity.

I finished reading an incredebly written and very motivating post: http://www.financialsamurai.com/how-to-build-passive-income-for-financial-independence/

Let me give you the gist that I got out of it:
1. Predetermine your financial goals (How much money do you need a month to be happy?)
2. Put as much money on the side as you can
3. Safe and Invest that money and NEVER touch it
4. Work on some bigger project while simultaniously investing (i.e. building your brand, blogging, youtube) and get some more money

Repeat that circle and you will be pretty much guaranteed to be successful. What I like about that formula is that it is easy and actually applicable for everyone.

I am doing the following now to get a step closer to my financial goals..
.. I have 750 bucks safed (my savings since I started my journey ~1 month ago)
.. I have 70 bucks invested in something that will return me 150 bucks
.. I need to call a new client that is interested in getting tutoring lessons with me (been procrastinating on that all the time)
.. I am building my brand as I am writing this post here right now

That is what I do to get closer to my dreams. What do you do?

New direction of this Blog

A big reason why I started this Blog is to try somthing new and to be active with something. I did not really had any bigger ambitions when I decided to reserve the domain that I have. Get started and everything else will fall into place, right? Right!

Because so it did. My Blog will have a new direction. I was really unfocused in what I want. My bi-polar tendencies are part of the reason. I often start something. Then get emotional over it and just quit what I did before. There is only two things in life that I just quit temporarely. Girls and Business. Because those things (along with health) are the areas where EVERYONE needs to step it up if one wants to have a fullfilled life.

Because of the anti-depressents my doctor prescribed me I had intense side-effects the entire week. I couldn’t eat. I couldn’t sleep. And I was really intense and paranoid all the time. It was impossible to have a normal conversation with me.

The side-effects started to wear off as I lowered the dosage though. I do feel better at the moment. And I am certainly more focused. Even though my social motivation is really low as I am typing these words.
There is two things that I will do in life before I die:

1. Having slept with 100 girls
2. Made a million bucks

And when I say “in my life” I certainly mean before I hit 30 (I am turning 23 soon). There is nothing that is stopping me. Theoreticly. Because I am a pretty damaged and fragile person. But I am pretty smart too. Look decent. And have a lot of potential. When I play my cards right, I can accomplish anything I want. Especially now that I took something into consideration that I never dreamed of doing before in my life: A psychotherapie and anti-depressents. I am on Sertralin since around a week and will get my psychotherapie approved soon. I think both are necessary for me and so far I have decent results from it.

This Blog will be a documentation about how I will accomplish both of my goals. So it is like a diary. Sometimes it might include random stuff of my life. Other times progress and reports about what I do. I will split my big goal into smaller ones. Something that I can accomplish this year for example. So it’s easier to keep track of what I do and see if I make progress. I am not really an expert in time-management or goal setting (or anything else). So I will out most of it along the way. Feel free to join me on my Journey.

Everyone needs a Mission in Life

Everyone does. And you will know that I am right if you don’t have a mission. If you have a mission. Or if you suddenly found your mission after being without one for so long.

It is empowering to create something and to be busy with something no matter what happens in the outer world. I can get fired from my job but still be optimistic because I am following my mission. The wall street can collapse tomorrow. I am still optimistic. I am on my mission in life.

Life is really hard if you do not have a mission. Because your mission is your purpose. And without your purpose you are impotent. Nothing has meaning. You go to your job but its just a way for you to earn money. Your spend time with your family but it is meaningless. You have nothing to give because you don’t know your place in this world.

Your job is just a way to support yourself when you have a mission. Or it is a part of your mission. It is seldom somthing in between. You work in some fuck-up job to pay the bills or you work in a bank because finances are your lifes mission. Something in between doesn’t exist.

You better figure out your mission in life or you will never know what living really is about.

What is my mission? A lot of people probably ask themselves this question. Of course. How should they know what their mission is if they have been to busy following other peoples advise all their life and never making the effort to think for themselves.

Welcome to a harsh place called reality. Where grown-ups live and make their own decisions. You are know one of them. So get some focus. Activate your brain and start thinking for yourself.

What is your passion? Deep down inside you already know it. It is likely that it is someting that you loved to do as a kid. Or something that you feel you have to do on a daily basis but have been always to afraid to go for. Maybe because you have been afraid to fail.

What is is that you want to do? No one can really answer you that question. No one but yourself. You know what it is. Everyone who is meant to have a mission knows. Maybe you like to write. Maybe you like to teach. Maybe you are meant to inspire other people. You might have a talent when it comes to maths or science. Something is in you. Deep down.

Find out what it is and let it out. Start today.
