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.

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

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
