How To Stay Happy

I had a moment today

One of those moments when you are somewhere familiar, a park that I grew up in to be exact. I was lucky growing up with a park at the end of my street that connected me with life long friends and a place I spent alot of time in with my sister.

I was sitting there today with my kids, it had been the first warm day hinting of the season change to come, I could smell the familiar scent of the local trees and grasses, The way the sun sneaks through the trees and the colour it spreads across the green grass, as I look around I see the typical garden in the area which surround me with comfort, memories flood into my tired brain and I’m filled with excitement.

Holy shit I laugh to myself quietly as I realise that the excitement I am feeling is driven by the park and memories. This is the excitement I fealt as a kid and had been feeling quite a lot lately with all my adventures and education into side hustling.

As I was growing up I was filled the energy of life and the endless possibilities and places it could take me. Back then I thought I could be a soldier or a millionaire. I could drive a flash as car and travel all the time. Who was going to stop me?

Society Was Going To Stop Me

I moulded myself away from the outrageous risk taking adventure to the reliable and expected path of career and solid foundation.

I can’t complain too much as it has lead me to my queen and kids as if I had to catch the bus of life to the most generic stops and wait for them to board, now they are on the bus it can go anywhere we want.

This new thinking has reignited something inside of me, the awakening of my mind to the option of following dreams and making them a reality.

If there was a gas leak I would have caused an explosion due to the sparks flying around my soul.

The Excitement Of Life

Is back and the fire is getting brighter and brighter with every action I take towards my goals.

What’s happening is life is starting to look how it did as a kid. I now believe that I can do anything and be anyone again. My goal of being financially free, sharing the wealth with family and travelling the world can and will happen. It is going to happen because I am determined and driven. I am Pumped.

I am just plain F*@k’n excited about it all.

Can this simple switch to reignite life be the answer to so many people’s problems? I’m not sure as I still have my down and angry points but they don’t last as long as they used to.

I can tell you that now I know what the type of excitement is that I am feeling, I will embrace it and allow it to flow through me and my family.

If you think back to when you were a kid what excited you about life? If you had a poor upbringing what kept you going? Maybe you can start your journey of discovery and be reunited with the drive for life.

I am interested to hear your thoughts people.

If you like the idea of being excited about life then please share it with those close to you.

Happy days

Drop Shipping

You guessed it punters, today I am starting my drop shipping adventure.

“But you have just started three other things ” I hear you say.

Yes……Yes I have and the more things I start to embark on at once the more it seems to feed and fuel my drive and excitement.

This new side hustle was always in the background but I just didn’t seem to be listening or be ready.

In the last few days I have listened to podcasts on this very subject which has given me the push to just take the plunge and try yet another way to supplement my income.

What is Drop Shipping you say, well please read on.

First I must make this clear and inform you that I have done bugger all homework on the products and completed zero market research on pricing, I have done this on purpose in an effort to keep it simple and allow me to just make a start.

Here is what I did in point form for you

  1. Listened to podcasts outlining instructions on drop shipping.
  2. Found a product on Amazon (LED smart RGB light globe was my first choice) purely because I like new technology and they are cheap.
  3. Saved the pics,specs and descriptions from the Amazon product onto my laptop.
  4. Created my EBay account and uploaded all the copied details of the globe from Amazon onto eBay and up for sale
  5. I looked at the Amazon price and postage fees and then went over to eBay and marked it up slightly
  6. Downloaded the eBay app to my phone so I could monitor.

The plan is that when someone see’s your product on eBay and places the order, they will transfer the funds into your account. You then use those funds to purchase the item from Amazon and ship it direct to your buyer.

They did warn of a couple things.

Make sure your suppliers have stock.

Make sure you check the supplier prices..

Apparently there is some software to help with this and if I decide to use it I’ll let you know..

Fingers crossed for me, if this works you should get amongst it yourself.

Stay tuned for more.

Please like, share and make contact. I really appreciate all your support so far. Spread the word.

Hooroo

Let there be ad’s

I have hit the button on allowing ads on my blogs, this required very little work on my part as you will see when it is time. This was done through Word Ads but I have only had them placed at the bottom of my blogs just to see what happens. So far I don’t believe there has been any clicks and I’m still not rolling around covering myself in money unfortunately.

I’ll keep you posted on the ad’s and their progress.

Trading In The Stock Market

This is my next adventure, the biggest thing slowing me down was finding a broker, you can’t trade without one apparently. I have been dreaming of trading ever since grade 9/10 in highschool and I was sitting next to a fellow student who was trading through his dad.

He would tell me stories about checking the latest reports and buying and selling. He had even made a small profit at one stage, BOOM I was hooked.

After years ton and off googling I felt I couldn’t trust these websites and brokers. What to do?

I decided that I would join my banks trading division as I felt like I could trust them considering they were already handling all of my hard earned. It cost nothing to join all I needed was basic personal details and I was away. Chur boi I’m now registered but yet too make my first purchase as I need some funds to play with. I am looking to try Penny Stocks first so I don’t loose too much money, I am also yet to look at the minimum buy amounts etc. Regardless I am pumped and soon will be a trader.

I figure it’s like gambling and it needs to be monitored as well as expecting that you could loose your money. With all that in mind watch this space as I will inform you of my progress.

So what to take away from this blog? The constant search and effort towards your dreams, doing a little everyday helps you to reach your goals. Keep up the hustle people.

Catch Ya

Positive Thinking

Happiness is just a positive thought away they say.

You can control your emotions and feelings they say.

People don’t require anti depressants they say.

My Opinion

I was thinking about asking if you would like my opinion but this is my blog so here it is. I think there is a major lack of compassion in the world, There are too many people ready to pass judgement on others.

The problem is we actually need those opinionated people in the world, how boring would it be if you could actually make everyone happy.

What cranks my handle is when someone makes a claim that they have the answer and it fits everyone.

Bullshit

mate, unless you’ve tested under the correct circumstances and had qualified teams monitor the outcomes over a period of time you ain’t got shit.

Don’t get online and start claiming that people suffering depression for example can just stop their medication and choose to be happy.

Instead let’s make time to put our own issues aside and show compassion, just listen and accept someone as they are.

You may not be able to help forever and sometimes it becomes too difficult to support others, don’t feel bad if this happens as you can’t allow yourself to feel responsible for how others are feeling.

Positive thinking for me is driven by the idea of having a world of possibilities in front of me, planning time with family, helping others and constantly searching for activities I enjoy.

Exercise

Did I mention exercise? No MrRandom you didn’t…. Ooops

Get your butt up and exercise because this is a natural way to induce happiness.

Get out there in the world and create happiness for others and enjoy the journey, you may be surprised where it leads you.

Cheers

Dreaming Of The Future

Paul McCartney

Awoke from a dream with a tune playing in his mind which later went on to be the massive hit Yesterday

So does this mean my dreams can come true? Dam Skippy it does and if my dream from last night is anything to go on it will be exciting and scary all at the same time.

Dreams

take you to places that feel so familiar even though you’ve never seen them before it, last night was no different for me as I drove down a dark foggy road in my mind. Arriving at a T junction I take a left turn and notice a large white vehicle much like an OKA, if you haven’t seen one Google OKA Vehicles Australia and you’ll see what I mean.

Autonomous

Is how this vehicle appeared as it was attempting to turn around but noticed I was following and began to gallop fastly ahead sliding into a corner like a wet dog running on tiles and then continuing down the road.

So I am looking at an OKA type vehicle with passengers inside but legs instead of wheels, WTF I am Thinking even in my dream haha.

The trip down the road continues but I think to myself that this is the ultimate off-road machine able to climb and jump up just about anything. 4LD Four Leg Drive.

Robotic Trimmer

Is the only way I can describe the next contraption I drive upon. This time it is a little more freaky as this Edward Scissorhands type looking tall metal robot stares at me on my approach.

I pull around the machine and pull up next to a man standing in the night.

He looks like an American state trooper with the hat and glasses even though it’s night time. His only job is to watch the machine incase it decides to attack people. As I learn this, the robot stares at me again and his gaze is freaky as.

I drive off only to be woken up by my little fella running in to say good morning.

The dream sticks with me all day as I think about the places that vehicle could go using legs, I also think that the technology to allow you to be inside a running vehicle and still enjoy a smooth ride would be another amazing invention of its own.

Then to have large robots that can attend tree falls or prune and trim tree and bushes through the night would be awesome. Less disruption to traffic flow. Why not build them with a mulcher and supply the mulch to households to assist water usage.

We don’t always remember our dreams but apparently we do always dream.

I have recently learnt that Caffeine even if you feel unaffected by it, disrupts your Sleep Pattern and should not be consumed after 2pm. I will be trying this for a week in the near future and will let you know the outcome.

As always I appreciate the feedback and support. Don’t forget you can comment, share or email me. Thank you

Happy Dreaming.

Podcast Bonanza

Amazonazing

Today my excitement levels lifted through the roof due to learning about Blue Origin and the founder Jeff Bezos.

I listened to a podcast filled with Jeff Bezos answering questions about Amazon, business and Blue Origin.

If you are not aware already he is working flat out trying to get Hoomans into the future with space tourism and travel. His drive to offer a new lifestyle option to the next generations is nothing but awesome.

I still wonder if we could manage to make mind transferring possible we could eliminate the need for oxygen and make our move off this planet so. Much quicker but there are so many issues that could cause for us as a race.

Blue Origin project New Shepard allows you to put your name down and jump on the waiting list for a tiki tour into space, experience weightlessness and became the ultimate adventurer.

If we can develop a way to live in the weightless environment of space it makes our dreams of hover boards, hover cars and other flying contraptions a real possibility.

Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk really awaken the inventor child within me as they reach for the so called Impossible.

Hopefully one day you’ll seey name of the net,

Mr Random Creates The First City In Space

We could even create a sort of force field type ozone layer and still a turd load of solar panels just into orbit to power earth.

I’ll leave you with this, If you had a dreams of inventing or had visions of things that seemed to be impossible or improbable please re-awaken those dreams/visions and feed yourself content around these subjects as you may hold the key to our future.

Don’t let your mind be the final frontier.

How To Dad Up Your Investment In Life

Have you spent time thinking about any steps you took previously and any knowledge you gained through your life that has directed you in the same direction as me? If not then stop fapping and invest some time into you daddy.

I do this type of thinking regularly, especially whilst I try to calculate the best and easiest way to make money with a side hustle and to increase general happiness in my life.

Side Hustle

I’ve started and run about 5 different facebook pages, Alot of energy was invested on a couple in particular but you guessed it I lost interest or time to keep them going.

Me and Wifey have imported goods and started a business just to discover how difficult it is if you don’t have a special niche and can’t compete with bigger businesses.

We’ve bought goods wholesale. We did manage to sell our first two stock orders, they were only small with us out laying about $500 in total and selling for a total of about $650 give or take.

I have tried multiple exercise forms and techniques on and off most of my life but unfortunately never consistently kept them up long enough to be fully ripped.

I’ve done meditation and self hypnosis thanks to YouTube

I have also listened to alot of books and podcasts about life mentally and physically as well as financially and believe that I have come up with some steps combining all the information I have absorbed.

Currently I am looking at many types of ways to make money online, I will share every step with you.

Finding My Niche

This is my second try at blogging although this time it’s very different. Learning that I get bored and that free blog sites didn’t work for me I have taken the steps to pay for this WordPress page for around $120 aud for twelve months as it comes with more features and I was planning on trying to put some ads on my pages to see what happens.

This is why I have started investor dad, he is still MrRandom except now he has a niche. My writing style is the same and I write when I feel I need to share or get something of my hairy nipples (chest),

Letting Go

so how do you vent stress or clear ideas blockage?

I find getting the ideas out one at a time either by writing or cataloguing them and physically trying to make them works best for me. You release repetitive ideas and create room for fresh thoughts to flow. This technique can also help with darker more difficult issues as well…

Another technique I learnt is letting go of feelings. This technique suggests that you have to realise mentally that sadness, anger and so on are just feelings and you can separate yourself from them in a way that allows you to just observe them and the way they make you feel.

By just observing the feelings and not trying to stop them is actually allowing the energy that accompanies the feeling to be released and flows until the feeling wears off. This stops you from

Bottling Up Your Feelings

OK so we’ve reassessed our life’s lessons, we’re going to look at finding a niche, we’re going to work on letting go to allow new ideas to flourish and move our life towards financial freedom.

So please have a think about what you think you are good at. Ask family and friends what they think you’re good at.

Make a list of things you could do too take advantage of your skill set and if any really spark an interest then do some internet research on competition, customers, market for that item/service ” Is it flooded with similar ideas”. We are making good progress now. Well Done

I hope you are enjoying the slow progress into my world as I fill you in on all the tips and techniques I’ve learnt along my journey..
