One Thing in 2017

Pat Flynn from smartpassiveincome.com, posted an article asking his audience: If you could accomplish only one thing in 2017, what would it be? He then stated one thing he would like to accomplish in business and one thing in his personal life.

I decided to choose one thing to accomplish for my finance and one thing physically. I am super sure, I am going to accomplish my physical goal of losing 53 pounds this year. So, I'm not really worried about this. I am currently 203 lbs and would like to see it become 150 lbs. I am already doing steps toward that goal. We have zumba sessions 4 out of 7 days in a week. I am lessening my intake of processed foods. I will write more about this on a separate blogpost.

The finance thing is where I have a doubt, so the solution there is to accomplish micro goals and build up the trust in myself. My financial goal for this year is to earn an income (outside of work) of 20, 000 pesos. I know that is not much for some people, but for me to achieve that kind of income is a big step towards financial freedom. I haven't even made an extra income of 500 pesos lolz so how can I possibly achieve the 20,000 peso goal??

I see some opportunities, but of course, I don't know how I'm going to be successful at it. But, as what Bo Sanchez said in one of his Feast talks, "Fail tiny, fail many, fail quickly". So I am going to try as many things as possible this year, but without sacrificing the quality of effort I'm going to put into each opportunity. 

The opportunities of making money, I see now are the following:

1. Coins.ph - will earn me 24 pesos each verified referral.

2. HumanHeartNature - sunflower oil = whitens dark spots e.g. underarms, elbow, etc. I'm currently using it and it does lessen the darkness of my underarms and I plan to sell this when I become a reseller, months from now.

3. NuSkin - whitening toothpaste = of course it whitens teeth... I will become a reseller of this on February or later this year.

I am sharing these opportunities here because I don't have any other outlet. None of my friends are sellers of these things, so I can't brainstorm with them... maybe someday, when they see I'm earning here, they will be on board... I can't tell this to my mom because she doesn't know anything about these companies and would probably automatically think they are scams lolz. And since I've tried so many things in the past and she knows I failed, I'm not sure she will support me in selling stuffs again lolz. 

I have to be prepared for failures and disappointments. I have to grind and hustle... work hard so I can harvest great results. I would like to remember what Tom Bilyeu said in one of his facebook posts:



To repeat what Tom said: Feel like you're wasting your life? Get to work. 

Every new year or every birthday, I reflect on my life and what I have achieved and I felt like such a big failure. I mean, the best way to measure success for me is the amount of money I make every month. To make lots of money is to create value. I don't have that much money per month therefore I don't give that much value to the marketplace. I don't like that. I don't like living like I don't have any value at all in the marketplace. I want to change that and I want to "escape the matrix", that limiting belief in myself that I can only accomplish this much, I want to achieve more in my life and not feel like I'm wasting another year of my life on mundane stuffs, living life without direction. So.... I got to get to work :D
