Where Did The Adventure Begin?

Was it the time I thought I’d build a robot to go to preschool in my place?

Was it when I was around 6 when I built my first basic electric test light?

Was it the time I electrocuted myself trying to rebuild a perfectly good bedside lamp at around 8 ?

Could have been around 9 trying to build my own disco light using a record player and a torch among other things?

Was it the day when I was around 10 that I realised I could buy something from one place and sell it elsewhere for profit?

Around 11 buying at garage sales and swapmeets and on selling to others

Maybe when I was 12 and trying to run a local Retic installation and gardening pocket money business with a couple school mates?

There are many memories like these that I have forgotten along the way,

Memories that show me my drive, inquisitive nature and wild plans have always been there quietly sleeping,

It’s all been lying dormant waiting for me to wake back up from my conforming slumber!

This clearly shows me that I lost myself in the journey too.

Looking back at how I interacted with the world before I found myself conditioned and changed in hope of fitting Into society is very important.

In those innocent day’s we would do anything that we found interesting or enjoyable and do it without a concern for anyone else’s opinion.

Be truly who you are and start the long, slow and enjoyable journey of self discovery.

So much hate and a major lack of understanding create a horrible stench and a heavy weight on social media and life today. You need to know and love yourself to survive the chaos.

Putting It All Together

Gather up your fond memories, write them down and study them hard.

Get to know your inner child, the inner You, the you that gets pure joy from something simple, the you that offers love and enjoys being loved.

The you that can endure the world.

If you are able to really connect with your self the doors to living a free and happy life begin to open in every direction.

But never stop searching for yourself , it is the hunt of your life, one that never ends!

I would love to know what things you did as a child that help to now shape your future.

Please leave me a comment, share and like and show some love.

Hooroo for now

Thank You

Floppy Balloon Skins

Strange title to a blog right?

Not really when I put it into perspective for you fellas.

Where Have You Been

Some people are asking, why haven’t you blogged others mutter, the reason is simple and a great lesson for everyone. I was on my way to the stars, hitting targets and starting new projects left right and centre. Things were exciting and flowing but then suddenly I lost momentum and starting hurtling towards the ground fast. My “hot air balloon” ride was slowing down and fighting resistance as it went up higher and higher. All of a sudden the balloon lost its pressure and went floppy, boom I was deflated.

Addicted To The Rush

Call it an addiction or a need to feel that excitement when everything is new and happening for you as you take on a new project. You have projected success, wealth and happiness to come at you from all angles and fast. When it doesn’t happen the way you planned you start asking questions like:

  1. Have I done enough?
  2. Is my content interesting?
  3. Do people like me?
  4. Is it all a scam?
  5. Does this blog even make it to browser searches?
  6. Do I like what I’m doing?
  7. Am I an idiot thinking I could make it?
  8. Have I wasted money?

Recognising The Ups And Downs

This is important in most things in life, learning enough about yourself to recognise an emotional trend as it starts then immediately trying to process it and soften the blow.

I am no guru on this but I have already began noticing when the self talk kicks in, coming with it is an attack from little mental soldiers carrying bazookas blowing all your positive thoughts into tiny unrecognisable pieces.

You can then focus picking up those small pieces of hope, imagination, love and excitement and backing yourself as someone who can achieve anything.

Many of the “Gurus” I listen too which are proven to be successful say it takes 5 – 10 years to get the success you long for. It’s not you who fails it may just be a business or plan that failed. So start another and crack on sunny.

In short You shouldn’t expect success instantaneously, You should not be doing it unless you are enjoying it and

Remember to check and back yourself and don’t give up!

I hope you find this helpful, I am a little rusty.

Thank you for reading.

Be Like A Grapevine

I was in the shower thinking about how much I love grapes and how much I love the lush green goodness of grapevines in the spring and summer when a thought became entangled within my mind.

I’m like a grapevine, I grow a little & then I’m cut back hard yet still I continue to grow. The longer this happens the stronger my roots become

That my friends is an original from me! Firstly I amazed myself and secondly it is so bloody true. Rams it in ya

I have been growing in this fashion my whole life which explains many things about my personal experiences and life.

Starting out young

buying and selling for a little profit and kick was one of my first growing seasons, just a couple leaves here and there but no fruit.

Then I ventured into my career and skills building, more leaves this year and some vine growth. Still no fruit.

Career changes and some more dabbling in home business etc, more leaves and vine this year with some wee little grapes sour and small. Now I’m really starting to take off.

Again more skills built, position changes at work and road side picking . Leaves everywhere with edible fruit as well as heaps of vine growth.

I think you get the picture now with this grapevine growth style, all the way along you have been training the new growth to grow in a certain direction whilst always staying connected to the original plant and base structure you grew originally.

I’m not sure what you think about this juicy blog but I’m reinvigorated,

Even though right now I might be stuck in the middle of winter with no leaves and remember I’ve just been hacked back to my brown dry stem,

I am still very much alive and healthy. As soon as I start feeling the warmth after some lovely rain I will grow and extend myself once again with fruit for all my family and friends.

I would love to hear your feedback on this idea as a great motivation and confidence booster to help get you through the dark winter shadows.

Happy eating 😊

Law of Attraction

Lift Your Vibe

I have read, listened and watched alot lately around the law of attraction and have come up with the reasons I think it works.

Before you get all opinionated and wander off thinking its all Bullshit take a minute to read this and see how it could work for you. No magic no craziness just pure awesomeness.

Lift Your Vibe

This is talked about often in this world and it relates to the vibration your body emits, A study has been done recently which has shown you can take sound or even voice off an empty chip packet via it’s vibrations so yes things vibrate. So lifting your vibe is supposed to draw other positive vibes your way and hopefully stop attracting the lower vibes that cause everything in life to be hard and difficult. Really this isn’t to hard to believe but I still wasn’t sold.

Manifestations

Next we are told to use manifestations to create the life we want for example

I am prosperous and I am grateful for all the things in my life

Or

Love is coming my way and bringing the perfect roast chicken with it

Maybe minus the chicken but you get what I mean 😋

No only must you use manifestations in multiple ways but you must also believe to your core that they are going to work. This was also difficult to swallow.

Focusing The Mind

Another study I heard about on a podcast was in regards to focusing and unfocusing your mind to allow the answers or path to show itself to you. This made sense,

have you ever noticed that when you’re doing something totally normal like taking a shower or washing the dishes, great ideas pop into your head, Even if you’re not thinking about them?

This is because the mind has had time to process all the information absorbed and come up with a solution subconsciously. Bloody amazing.

My Adventures Using The Answer To Life

So I put my mind to work dreaming that I had already succeeded in some of my dreams and continued to dream bigger, immediately I noticed a change in my drive and excitement for life, This lead to some of the adventures I’ve blogged about previously. I noticed my bank wasn’t running dry before payday and that I had stopped wasting money on junk almost automatically which I assume Is a result of me believing that the money is coming and I wanted it to grow in the bank.

My families drive and excitement had also lifted as if I had helped raise them up even just a little by being driven, determined and happy.

Just as I was building momentum I fell back down again, feeling as if I just wasn’t going to make it and this is as good as it gets. Once I had realised this and spoke it out with the wife I set out to pick myself up again and find the next adventure to go on.

Sounds alot easier in theory I know.

So I believe that the positive sayings and manifestations are great for building yourself up and really allowing you to feel success, this tends to rip the blinkers from your eyes and allow you to see opportunities and possibilities where you just wouldn’t have before. Because you are feeling successful you are keen to give these opportunities a red hot go and lean towards a positive outlook believing that you can achieve anything.

This is where I believe real success is born, not through attraction but the ability to see and act instead of ignoring and staying the same.

Don’t worry about what your friends think and if it really bothers you just don’t tell them what you are doing or trying. Who cares, and what’s the worst that can happen?

Give it a go yourself and let me know how it goes for you. There are Vids on the net containing meditations you can listen to for manifestations, there are podcasts and even movies. Plenty of info around for you to cast your eyes over.

Im glad you found this blog insightful and that you are now trying the law of attraction for yourself, just like this closing paragraph you are using manifestations to create your own dreams and realities. 😊

Hooroo people

Happy hunting

Investor Dad part 8

My Share Portfolio Grows

Mainly because the shares I have purchased are short hold and because they have not had a significant rise in price, selling out now would be a loss due to commission charges.

What have you learnt Daddy

Well I purchased more shares in the same mining company as before but I also added a new E-gaming company into the mix. My forecast for these shares is a fluctuation up and down but in general trending up.

If I find in three months nothing has happened I will look over my plan and go from there. The mining company is slowly trending so there is hope. The E-gaming company had some promising press releases but have been trending down so I guess it’s just a case of patience and sticking to my plan.

Press Releases And P&L’s

One thing I find really awesome is because these companies are listed publicly, they share heaps of information with you in regards to profit and loss, company structure and changes, company direction and planning. This is priceless insight if used correctly. I am just getting in the habit of doing more homework using these resources. Do yourself a favour and check out what they are spinning up.

Because I’m partial to a cappuccino and because of my job I have started to make every Friday the day to sit with a coffee and flick through the Australian Financial Review. I find enjoyment and build my knowledge every time I read the markets movements and local news which can have an effect on pricing. It may only be 15mins of relax time but I feel good every time I do it.

I’d love to hear about your stories of trading and how you go about finding trades and insight.

Hit me up with your feedback and leave me a comment.

Don’t forget to share any blogs you have enjoyed.

Cheers Team
