I always promote having more than one source of income, so if one goes away, another one, or two, or three still remain.
Invest in yourself first. If you don't have the time or means to invest in yourself, something needs to be done about that.
Whether or not you get ahead depends on what you do in your off working hours. Are you spending these hours improving your skills for work, working on your goal ideas, exercising, spending quality time with your friends and family or taking care of yourself? Or, are spending these hours doing things that are of no benefit, or even a detriment to yourself?
Work hard, work well and ultimately your work will not go unnoticed. Let your work speak.
Be willing to help others and ultimately, you will get much back in return. Treat others poorly, and expect the same treatment back.
What happens from 9-5 during regular business hours is important, but what happens from 5 to 9 during non working hours is equally as important.
When faced with a busy schedule and much that needs to be accomplished, the best thing to do is start taking action and get started. Do the most important things first. No good will come from sitting around and wondering about it.
In life, I've come to realize that if I really want something, I will overcome any obstacle to achieve. If I see myself getting discouraged with every little problem while going after a certain goal, it's a pretty good indication for me that it's not what I want.
Is what you are doing today creating for you a better tomorrow?
