“Investing is simple, your brain isn’t” – Justin A. Starks
Keep it simple when it comes to investing and debt. Would you rather be up 40K steady adding more money to that number feeling good because you are up (financial security), or down 40k steady paying more to that number feeling stressed, depressed, and worried playing the “rat race” (financially depressed)?
Don’t look at the media
Whatever you do don’t rely on the media when it comes to investing. They make it hard on your conscious every single day. From adds displayed on the bottom of the screen to lousy predictions, don’t let the media screw you over. You should always develop your own simple plan and stick to what you know.
Don’t follow every one else’s techniques
Not saying be close minded, but remember you are different from the pack. We all have our own expectations and life “money goals”. How someone invest and what they invest in may not fit your criteria. Stick to your agenda when it comes to investing. Have some morals and dignity about yourself.
Don’t Run with the crew
When you see everyone els running from what seems to be a good deal for you, especially when it’s a company you trust, obviously you shouldn’t panic. Don’t run when the media or close individuals tell you the market is bad and you shouldn’t be investing. Actually, that’s the time you want too invest your dollars.
“Your biggest regret is not investing in the stock market” – Investors all over the globe
The dumbest thing you could do with your money is not invest. It could be real estate or your own business, no matter what it may be you have to invest. By not investing in the stock market you are losing out on the growth of the economy. If you don’t take ownership with these opportunities you will continue to be a worker (loaner).
You can’t keep trusting these banks that pay you only 1%. You work hard for your dollars and you are worth much more than that. These techniques will not be thought in the classroom or probably from your homes, especially if your parents know nothing about investing. You have to teach yourself and get that financial education before you forever be played by the system.
In order to not to have sleep money, you have to take chances with it and that’s why the Stock Market is key. It allows your money to grow while you are sleep. You earn the money, put a percentage up, and distribute at your own risk and you could possible see some great returns. You don’t have to be the smartest about investing, it is key to keep it simple. Keep it simple to your investing techniques and grow just upon what you know. It doesn’t make sense not to invest in the Stock Market. You have to put your money to work while you are sleep unless you will work all your life thinking you have to work for money.
Don’t let your mind kill your efforts. The brain is so powerful and any negative thoughts that come in could potentially harm you. Your thoughts make you who you are. They guide you to failure or success. You have to be stronger than your mind in order to program your inner self.
There is a time we grow up and have to distance ourselves from negative people. No matter if it’s friends, family, or someone you love. If they aren’t bringing any value to your life and keeping your dreams buried you have to let that individual go. Time is valuable and to many of us around the globe has let love and people who we thought was there for us tear down our dreams, vision, and goals. It is important that you let negative people go and stay sucker free. You don’t need those leeches around you sucking all of your energy.
We all go through these and they can ruin our whole day. Certain situations will get the best of us but it’s smart to relax the brain and think about it first. Life isn’t easy and certain situations can get us down. In order to continue working hard on our dreams, we can’t let negative situations get us down. That could be death, arguments, and just any bad situation, we have to continue to hold on and thrive. Negative situations can’t ruin our expectations about life.
“Change how you look at money, save some honey.”- Justin A. Starks
Not starting now when it come to saving for retirement could be your biggest regret. Many people are staying in the street and living in complete poverty because of that very exact reason. You have to learn that the money you make needs to be planted like a seed. No matter the weather, you have to put up more than you make. Sounds unreal huh? Well in most instances it’s not. Overtime through investing your money grows due to compound interest. That allows you to make more than you actually do over the years. Net worth is how much you have not spend or make through out the year. It’s sad that most of us don’t know the difference and think just because we make 40 to 80k a year we are well Financial off. It’s hard to even believe over 60% of Americans don’t have a Emergency fund of 1,000, not alone 500 for car repairs. This is scary and should remind the people that they are one tragic loss away from losing everything. This alone should tell you that probably you should start looking into saving for retirement instead of being a consumer. It doesn’t make any “Cense” not to save for retirement!
“7 or 11 you win. Get a point, hit your point you win!” – Justin A. Starks
When I say roll the dice, I mean go for what you want out of life. Shout out to the legend Hugh Hefner who started his dream off of 600 dollars and a dream, while sitting at his kitchen table with nothing to eat on his plate. I don’t care what route he would’ve took in living his life, but the moral is he lived a life of happiness. Everything he wanted to do was all up to him and exactly in his power. He didn’t let anyone stop his dreams or shatter his thought process. He successfully went after his desires and made his toughest passion come alive.
You have to take action of your life the exact same way. Don’t let anyone tear down what you see as a way of life. Any and every idea could be implemented in this world. Stay focused and keep your eyes on the journey, no matter how tough your vision may be. You are a survivor, warrior, and naturally born go getter. Go chase those dreams. Life is all about chasing and making it happen.
“RIP Hugh Hefner, your magazines got me through many nights as a young boy!”
“The next level isn’t for everyone, but it’s for you.” – Justin A. Starks
Before you can reach the next level you have to make sure all your eggs are squared away. Some days just not going to be perfect and you have to learn quickly working when you are down is necessary to see the next level. Only working on days you feel awesome just isn’t the right plan of action. Actions need to be taken on any day when it comes to your goals, wants, and needs.
Is it for you
The next level isn’t for everybody. The next level are for those who have been working since the dawn of time. Just like you went to school for more than a decade or two that’s exactly how your dreams should be treated. You should continuously work on yourself and let the old horrible habits go. Learn to walk before you run. Learn to take the criticism before they listen. Just keep being progressive and make sure you are doing your absolute best.
This is for those who needed that extra push. That invest in the Stock Market pump fake second look, lol. Seriously, the next level is waiting on you, you just have to put yourself in position and climb that ladder alone or someone butting it from the bottom (supporters) making sure you don’t fall or slip off. You are a leader not to conquer your goals!
I know it’s hard out here in these streets. I know money come in and wallah it’s gone. I know how 40 hours a week isn’t even close enough to what you need to survive on the month and that extra job just draining your energy.
I am here to tell you that giving up isn’t the option. The option is taking charge of your finances. Taking charge of the opportunity at hand and staying down for the cause. Learn how to run your income like a business and not just put up with these jobs not having nothing to show for. That’s the quickest way to feel down and depressed Month after month and I just can’t take that lifestyle.
Your solution is simple! Stack, pray, and elevate. Be the leader of where your income go. Stop getting bored and thinking getting up spending money is the only option. Stop eating out every night after work and cook a decent home cooked meal. Let’s start taking steps out of poverty and into this new style of less luxury spending but having more money to invest and build a legacy.
Investing in the Stock Market could put you and your family in a better situation than you had before starting. By staying down and not quitting you get to create passive income for yourself and your family. Let’s learn what many of your teachers, communities, and elders didn’t teach you because they didn’t know themselves.
“The Stock Market doesn’t want you to keep it simple, they want you to not invest, invest.” – Justin A. Starks
Investing is a great way to build wealth. For many years it has been a great tool for many successful individuals around the globe. It’s time for you to use it and reap some of the benefits as well.
Today I am discussing how you could possibly make money in your sleep. I am making you totally aware of the Stock Market and how you could receive dividend checks just by investing in stocks you believe are some good.
Let’s imagine you invest in a stock. No matter what that stock was you are fully invested and it pays a dividend. Well, every quarter “3 Months” you receive what is called a Dividend Check. That’s free money from the company you trust that goes to you in a form of a check.
You can either A cash the check and spend it on something you need or wanted or you can B reinvest it back in the Stock Market and let compound interest do its wonderful magic. Your way is entirely up to you, but I have to chose the Plan B.
The more stock you own of the company the bigger the dividend check. Let’s not forget about your stock appreciation growth, return on interest, and capital growth. Even if your stock isn’t doing good for a couple of days or years the company still gives out a dividend check for you being invested with the company.
Let’s not make the Stock Market complicated with all the strategies and terminology. That’s how you get turned off by it and never become that wealthy individual. Keep it simple and invest in companies you know, not what you hear. Only pick stocks that pays a dividend check every quarter and invest. Simple right? True enough.
“When I see money on the stove, I could whip a bowl”. – Justin A. Starks
Money is the subject. To me money is life. Now I am not saying I will sell my soul for it, but it does play a big part in how I see my life headed forward. I do say follow your dream and money will come. Never stress over money to the point that it kills you. Never stress over money to the point you sell out your own kind or the ones you love the most. Always let your purpose be the reason you achieve great amounts of wealth. No matter what you do just make sure it is something you love to do for the money.
Don’t let time pass you by or any other hour. Every minute is valuable and you have to know exactly how important every second is to the mission. Becoming someone with regrets means you wasted a lot of years doing nothing. You were someone who said, “Oh I will do this tomorrow, next week, or when the opportunity is right”. That’s not living at all. That’s what I call dead procrastination.
Foolery behind you
It’s time to leave the foolery behind you and work your magic with your passion. Last week people have died indulging in the foolery. They let the streets or worse situations get to them. If you are the type to let every situation get the best of you then it is time for a change. If you want a dollar you can’t be the same as everyone else and when I say dollar, I mean a huge amount. The type of amount you need everyone in your family to count it all. Stop playing and leave that foolery behind you. It’s time to get a dollar, not another dead problem/partner
Work your Magic
In order to get the amount of money you have always dreamed of, you have no choice but to work you magic. Let go of that comfortable blanket you are always use to and get a new one. Let go of the people who are always there to protect you when you get a baby bruise. Learn how to get up and make your own decisions. We need more leaders, not anymore followers. We can’t keep dodging failures, baby that come with the dream! Time to work that magic and get everything you have always dreamed of. It’s not hard but it isn’t easy. Stop playing and make it breezy!
“Never turn your back, if they stayed down”- Justin A. Starks
Never turn your back on those that supported you since day 1. Your real family, friends, and all above loved ones. As you grow make sure they are growing as well. Doesn’t necessarily mean give them money or any of your possessions but check up on them and see how they are doing. Have a level of respect and show them you do appreciate them sticking by your side along the way.
Many people miss blessings because they turn their backs on the ones that looked out for them when no one else did so. I know sometimes we feel like no one was there but in reality some were and we have to make sure their appreciated.
If they are willing to put in the same hours as you and build a legacy it doesn’t make any sense to turn your back. If the ones who rocking with you are able to put aside differences and make something out of themselves right along with you it doesn’t make any sense to leave them in the wind once you get on. Be someone of character and build the people. Have great discipline and remain humble.
