How are you all today..? If you live in Adelaide, you would probably agree with me how beautiful our weather is today. It felt so… heavenly, especially when I walked along the river and beach of Port Noarlunga today.
Do you notice or know a lot of people who keep searching for heavenly life style but forgetting the simple things right in front of them?
I often realise how beautiful life is. My gratitude for simple things in life keep increasing as I get older. I love my home, my family, my friends and the fact that I have a secure job producing secure income to help me enjoy the finer things in life too.
As I become more aware of what’s more important in life, I am gradually developing a system to enable me buy my time back. Being able to gradually replace my employment income (active income) with passive income from investments and home business ideas. It is so…sweet and make me feel so… fortunate.
I read a book called “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki a few years ago and learned since then how important it is to be able to build a pipeline to create an ongoing passive income, so you can use your time to enjoy quality time in your life more instead of trading your time for money all the time.
It didn’t make sense as much to me then, as I was so.. comfortable earning money from employment through trading my time, as it was the only way I knew how. However, once I started experiencing how nice it is to be able to earn some extra money from doing what you love doing pasively, it’s like a dream came true.
The thing is that, you can keep going to work if you enjoy what you do at work and enjoy the ability to network with many skilled and knowledgeable people through your workplace. You can then earn 2 or 3 lots of income from different sources. As soon as the extra income which is your passive income replaces or overtakes your active income, you can retire earlier from your employment if you choose to do so. If you want to keep working because you enjoy it, that’s even better, as you can keep earning more income that you can invest in producing even more passive income. I hope I am making sense here.
Anyway, in the mean time, just relax, enjoy the sun shine, the fresh air, the clean water, the smiles from friends and family and the fresh food you can cook at home using local fresh produce.
Life is too short, stop searching for the unknown. Enjoy what’s right in front of you within your reach first. Never complain for what you do not or cannot have.
Show appreciation to your partner, children and friends for what they are able to give you. Never demand for what they cannot give you or what they do not have.
Be thankful for who they are. Never expect them to be what they are not.
I am sure you know the rules of peace. This is just a gentle reminder as we all need one from time to time.
