Don’t miss opportunities find your passion

“When opportunities arrive, open the door.”

Opportunities come and go. Sometimes we don’t realize that we missed a good opportunity because we did not have the courage to take action.

Sometimes we are afraid to take that next step or try something new.  It may be that we are going through some things in our lives and we choose to focus on that situation and, therefore, we miss out on a great opportunity. We need to see these occasions as something that could change our destiny. We are so fortunate to have these opportunities that not only function to improve our lives but can be used to serve others in different aspects of their lives.

We are all born with different talents. Some people are great at teaching the word of God, others are successful in creating and running businesses, some have amazing communication and leadership skills.  The list is endless to the variety of talents found in people. What is your talent? What is your passion?  What is it that you look and say that it is easy? Look for that thing that you are passionate about and have the talent for and use it to be happy and improve your life.

There is a phrase I love. It says, “Wisdom will help you find your passion”. There is a book called Wisdom Meets Passion by Dan Miller.

I want to tell you that this happened to me. It all started when my wife and I had accumulated a debt of $ 91,000. I started studying personal finance and investment so we could get out of debt. I started reading lot of books, listening to educational audios and attending seminars. I discovered that I liked all of this personal development, motivation and helping others. That is why I created a website. I wanted to share with you all of this information that is now my passion so you could find your passion.

Please know that we are on this planet for a purpose, which is to serve others and be successful. Together we are a team. Together we help each other. Think about when you go to the supermarket to buy milk. Someone stocks it in the refrigeration aisle so you can just grab it and put it in your cart. Someone made your life easy. By seeing yourself as part of a team, you can also help make other’s lives easier as well.

Do not miss these opportunities that come up in our lives.  You never know where they made lead you.

Leave me your comments to help others and motivate them to take action.

Success is for everyone. Many people have achieved it and tell their story.  It’s time for you to tell yours.

Remember to always ask God to guide you and give you wisdom to make good decisions in life.

shoppingWe love to do it; some more than others.  But shopping can get us in trouble very quickly.  The easy answer would be not to shop.  However, I doubt that people would actually follow that.  Instead, be conservative in your spending.  Ask yourself, do I really need that or can it wait?  Do I really love it or just like it?  These simple questions will help you to be better about not overspending.   You don’t have to completely cut out shopping if you can have some impulse and self-control.  Rethink each item you wish to purchase before you head to the checkout.  Often, you will realize that something you intended to purchase isn’t really necessary.  Every bit helps.  At the heart of your purchasing, keep the end result in mind- financial freedom.  You can do it!

Paying a Price and the Price is not Money

Paying the priceEveryone is dreaming about success, without even knowing what it truly involves. Therefore, it is essential to analyze carefully this concept. Only this way you will get to realize the true nature of success.

As you well know, everything in this life has a price, and sometimes the free things are more expensive than the ones that cost money. You may wonder about this, but the truth is that money is not the price that needs to be paid in order to achieve something.

In order to understand this concept, you need to realize what is more important than money. Taking this in consideration, you will see that time is more important, and many times there will be free things that will cost your time, and therefore you will have to pay the requested price, without any discount or promotion. Money is not everything, and success is not based on money. However, many people confound these two concepts, mainly because they tend to measure success with money. It is time to take a closer look and to realize that a successful life is one where you find the perfect balance between work and family, between what you share and what you keep. Many people don’t know how to achieve this balance, and therefore they don’t know how to handle the situation.

Working provides you a comfortable life and a successful career, and if you are lucky enough to do what you like, then you won’t feel that your time is wasted. However, in order to achieve success, you need to find the balance between read more

The Wheel of Life

By Kelly Flores

The Wheel of LifeThere are lots of examples of the Wheel of Life.  All you have to do is Google it and see the variety of images that are displayed.  There can be any number of categories in your wheel.  For our purposes, we choose to use these categories: spiritual, physical, financial, social and career.  The wheel is an assessment tool used to evaluate your life in its current state.  Where are you doing well?  Where are you deficient?

(See the general wheel of life diagram)

It is easy to chart where you are.  If I just use numbers 1 through 5 (1 being “poor” and 5 being “fantastic”), I can chart each of the 5 categories I have decided to use and create my circle- or whatever awkward shape it comes out to be.  Then you can see what areas in your life are in decent shape, great shape or even deflated, i.e. awful, shape.

(See the personal diagram example)

So, I can easily see that I need to work on my physical side the most to at least bring it closer to the other scores.  If this charting is interesting to you and you want to learn more and go more in depth, you can visit many other websites on this topic such as

Grab a scratch piece of paper and try charting out your life.  You may realize just how good you are doing or just how out of proportion you are on the important areas of your life necessary for success and happiness.

The importance of education“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.” – Henry Ford

There are many wise quotes about learning and education, but in order to understand better the concept, you should know that there are 4 types of education that define us, making us realize more things about life. Therefore, if you want to lead a successful life, you shall need to learn something from everywhere.

Parental education

The first seven years from home are important to any child’s development, and it represents a kid’s first opportunity to learn something new during each day. Even if they are so little, the children have the ability to assimilate so many things, and they present an imitative behavior. This is why parents shouldn’t focus too much on telling them what to do and what not to do, but rather they should focus on behaving in a proper way, teaching their children how to behave. After all, every person is developing according to the education received at home.

Teachers’ education

After all the years spent at home, children need to learn about community, team work, the importance of learning. Teachers are very important in a child’s life, since they are those who help the children in this long educational journey that goes from one school to another. Just like the parents, teachers need to focus on their behavior. At school, the students learn something new every day, having many disciplines. However, excepting all these disciplines, they will also learn about competition, friendship, community, team work, adaptability, and respect. There are many people who consider that this is the most important education, without even knowing how wrong they are.

Life education

No matter where you are, what you do, you will always have social interactions, and you will have your own life. Life has a way of teaching you so many things, some good, and some bad. However, at the end of the day, you will see the importance of every failure, and the joy of every accomplishment. Life is hard and full of tests, and it will test your patience and your will, and yet, it will teach you so many things, especially if you are eager to learn something new every day. The human kind is a social animal, and therefore we depend on our interactions with other persons. In order to have a good communication, we will need to pay attention to the education offered by life.

Financial education

There is no man who doesn’t know something about money. What is interesting about it, is the fact that in the case of money, the most suitable saying is ‘easy come, easy go’. People have the tendency of appreciating the true value of the money only after they have worked hard to achieve it. This might be the reason why those who gain from gambling spend really fast that amount.

5 Steps for Personal Success

successPersonal success is one’s ability to accept failures and correct them.  It’s also about managing his success.  But while people achieve success, they don’t feel happiness in what they’ve attained as they’re not attuned to their personal vision and goals.  Usually, they spend a lot of time trying to plan for their future and forget the present situation they’re in.  Some are even unsure of what they really want in life. Personal success is about being able to achieve your career and personal goals. Setting your goals is the easy part, but achieving it is a completely different level.  Achieving personal success also means living a balanced life, which is what everyone wants.  Do you want to achieve personal success?  Follow these 5 simple steps to do just that.

  • Know your vision. Before you can begin your journey to success, having a vision is what you need to think about first. The difference between ordinary people and successful people is that the latter have a clear idea of what they’re going to achieve in the future. They know precisely what they really want and work from now to accomplish it. Do the same and know what you really want in the future.
  • Set clear and specific goals. Your goals should be measurable, achievable and have a deadline. If your goals don’t have these aspects, it’s definitely not a goal. Get a piece of paper and write your goals at the moment.  Bring this paper with you wherever you go.  You can put it in your wallet or purse to remind you of your goals all the time.
  • Create a set of action items that can be taken to accomplish your goals. Ask yourself what you can do to make your goals come true. Write all the possible steps that can help you attain your goals and then make a daily task of what can be done to move toward your goals every day.
  • Take action according to the plan you made. Do you think you can achieve your goal if you will just write it down and stare at it? No. You’ll need to take action to make everything happen.  A lot of people think that opportunities will fall on them one day and that they’ll become well-off and successful.  Avoid this false belief and just make your goals come true.
  • Stay focused. Stick with your goals and priorities.  It takes persistence, discipline and patience to remain focused.  Being persistent will help you overcome the setbacks, temptations and failures that might take you off the path to success.  Patience is needed to overcome the obstacles that might prevent you from achieving your goals and discipline will let you play the game right.

You will also have to learn throughout your journey to success.  No one can achieve great success without learning new things and improving himself along with the way.  Learning is among the most powerful ways of achieving anything you want.  Once you do these steps, you’re on your way to personal success.
