If you do what most do, you will get to the place that most are.
Your comfort zone is a trap that life has given you.
Make your life a high productivity, improve 1% each day, study more and work every day, much more than the day before.
We all need inspiration, to progress, to live, to achieve good things, to grow and to make a good difference somewhere. You study, grow, shape yourself, get a job, read every day, build your dreams and live some of them, then get more dreams, some difficult, some easier, commit to small goals, start projects, give up some He arranges others and all this to lead to some corner. Well, it could be that way for everyone, but it’s not, nor is it easy or simple to leave your comfort zone, your pre-established life, your Christmas city, your friends, family, your lifestyle and everything Around forever.
One thing for sure is that getting out of the comfort zone is not for everyone. And that your chances of winning great things getting in your comfort zone are lower. Think about it, what big biographies of guys you read are from those who have lived their entire lives in the neighborhood itself? Who had a full life going and returning to the same office for 35 years? You see, people can be happy like that if they want, but maybe that’s not their dream. It’s hard to assume that.
The comfort zone is like the mermaid’s song, she calls you, she loves you, comforts you, imprisons you and kills you. Kill your dreams, your projects, your ambitions and your life stands still in time, stagnant, nothing will flow, everything is balanced and in the same place. Total peace is death. This is an investment blog, but aside from the technical part, there is another part that is not very much addressed; they are questions and answers that are rarely answered or answered.
I will answer basic questions:
Why invest? To have and keep our money.
What is our money? It is our time and our ability to produce something useful.
Why do we invest for the long term? To have money and freedom in the future.
What do money and freedom mean in the future? To be able to live without fear of the unforeseen, to manage his life with tranquility, to be unemployed without great scares or fears or privations, to be able to provide his family no matter what happens.
Why invest? Not to impoverish.
What is your fear of impoverishment? Not having the time and money to do the things that make you happy, starving, cold, sleeping on the street, having to work in degrading conditions to survive, losing your spouse, children, respect for family, morals and dignity human.
What makes you invest? The hope of better days, of being at peace with life, of being responsible for your own life, of taking care of family, children, parents and being able to do the things that please you. And still not impoverish or lower the standard of living.
What standard of life do you long for? I do not want a high standard of living, just comfortable and simple, paid basic bills, a car and a home insurance, and some more money for leisure and travel.
How much do you think it would cost? About 20 minimum monthly salaries. In today’s values about 16 thousand reais a month (for a family of four). Taking into account that the villa and the vehicle are already paid.
Does the comfort zone let you invest? Probably not, and that’s the basic problem. Those who do not leave the comfort zone work less, save less and invest less. Of course, if everything’s okay with what I’m going to worry about? If I am already surrounded by family and friends doing everything I like, why should I bother saving for the future? And that’s how billions of people in the world live, actually the overwhelming majority of people.
Reflect on this image:
You will only have access to things, people, places, services, products and a much better, richer, more comfortable and brighter world if you can get out of your comfort zone, study more than average, work harder than To average, to save, invest, study finances more than the average, simply because the average is poor, accommodated, without knowledge, without healthy ambition, without a solid educational and cultural base, the average is rude and will always be.
You are the average of the five people you most live with, who you relate to, who you talk to the most. Observe these people, their lives, their dreams, their mental status, whether they are failures or winners, whether they are moving to a fantastic place or are going to decay in life, if they will pull you along, these people talk a lot about yourself. If you feel bad about being a loser, it is better to be alone and focus on your personal and professional life than to accompany those who throw you down.
If you are among great people and feel smaller than them, uglier, more stupid, poorer, more incapable, better, study and work more, take courses, take courses online (Coursera, Edx), watch videos ), Improve your profession, study, be more focused, learn from them, read books from good authors, nonfiction books, great biographies, study philosophy, finance, entrepreneurship, investments, learn English, (READ, WRITE, SPEAK) these three things, do not fool yourself or fool yourself, English is extremely important in today’s world, forget other languages if you are not TOTALLY FLUENT in English, to see a film without a caption, To read a good book, to write a letter or a writing with tranquility, if it does not so do not speak, whatever it is, grow in life, this is the only choice we have, the rest is illusion, study and work hard , Very much, is very good at what it does, our whole life depends on it, our studies and our work.
And if necessary, change your city, pass a national competition, go to a college in the distance, take a job abroad, go to the big city, get off the beach, move to São Paulo, to Brasilia, to NY, to Tokyo, Sao Just examples, undertaking is not just selling gourmet “brigadeiro” or opening a subway in your neighborhood, take a job in another state, get out of your parents’ house (but do not forget your roots). Everyone will grow up with your success and your example. Write down your goals, accomplish small daily missions, complete the annual missions, dream big.
The post was to say this, so you do not stop in time and in life!
Investing is that, progressing, growing, strengthening and being more capable.
It’s not just giving an order to a home broker, that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
