3 Ways you’re losing money


3 Ways you're losing money

“The longer you’re not taking action the more money you’re losing.” Carrie Wilkerson

One of best lessons I learned from being broke and needing money was to open my eyes and look around me. From my experience needing money my mind opened in this short but sweet post I going to tell you 3 ways you are losing money because your eyes and mind are most likely closed.

1. Ebay.com has over 59 million visitors per month and ebay.co.uk ranks number 7 as the most visited website according to alexa. Look at the things you have accumulated over the years ask yourself? “do I really need all of this” if the answer is no you can always do what I did. I made two piles 1 for charity and the other for items I planned to sell on eBay. Take pictures describe the item in as much detail especially the condition it’s in. We all know children grow very fast and outgrow their clothing very quickly why not make some extra cash selling those items.

2. I had accumulated so many books when I was studying for a number of reasons I did not like to borrow the library books because I could not write and highlight relevant section in them some of these books were expensive and in good condition baring all the post-it notes I had placed. A relative told me about an online website that bought books ww.webuybooks.co.uk I downloaded the app signed up for an account and simply scanned the barcodes packaged up the books and a courier that they pay for came and collected the parcels within a week the money was in my account. I’ll also add that as you scan the barcode it tells you how much you will get for each book, cool right?

3. The 3rd final items our family was losing a lot of money on was video games there’s always the latest must-have game or games console that the children just have to have in their lives. Yes you got it they eagerly awaited game finished it in a matter of days or maybe weeks and it on the shelf gathering dust. Well I got my sons to sort through all the games and consoles they no longer wanted and we carried them down to CEX  at the time we did it you could get the cash or exchange for items within the shop.

If you are feeling you are strapped for cash right now “The longer you’re not taking action the more money you’re losing.” Carrie Wilkerson.

“The mind is everything what you think you become” 

The start our day influences how we feel for the next 12 hours. We all know what it’s like to wake up not feeling rested. We need to pursue a happier and positive deposition, especially in the morning. Try these 5 effortless steps to start your morning out the right way.

1, Breathe
Just because you had a really good night’s sleep doesn’t mean you’ll jump out of bed with a massive amount of limitless energy. For some, it takes a little while to wake up properly. Breathe slow, deep breaths to clear your mind of all thoughts and trigger the release of endorphins, producing a calming effect.

2, Gratitude
Spend a few minutes each day to think about all the things you are grateful for. Count your blessings, noticing simple pleasures, and acknowledging everything that you receive. You may even want to keep a daily journal to write down your thoughts and feelings, I recommend, The Daily Greatness Journal: A Practical Guide for Consciously Creating Your Days.

3, Affirmations
Tell yourself positive statements and you’ll notice a real difference. Have 2 or 3 sentences you can read or know by heart. By keeping affirmations close at hand it will ensure that you feel good and resonate with your personal truth. Download free positive affirmations here.

4, Exercise
Get the blood flowing in your body by stretching your arms and legs and moving your neck from side to side. Five-minute wake-up workout.

5, Freshen up and Refuel
Taking a shower first thing in the morning gives you a nice blast of energy. You’ll feel and look refreshed. Refuel your body and brain with breakfast, without it you are effectively running on empty; skipping a meal is like trying to start the car without petrol.

It takes 21 days to create a habit. Give the five tips a try and start all your future days with a better mindset to live your best life.
