First off, I am not promising you that an online business is guaranteed to improve your mental health.
It can, but I’m not promising you a cure. Everything in our lives is far too subject to our perspectives, experiences, and personal attributes.
Second, some people couldn’t imagine running an online business. They prefer having a traditional employer and there’s nothing wrong with that.
Then there are the people who are mentally suffering because their job is botching their brains. They’re n...
Within the timeframe I spent overhauling my crazy bad lifestyle and mindset I’d built for myself, creating new habits played a key role in the process.
Big changes are great, but sometimes the habits we consciously/unconsciously adapt are even more finely tuned with who we become.
Some of them were self-imposed due to knowledge gained. Others came around from listening to my gut. Now that I’m looking back, I don’t regret applying any of these to my life.
Maybe they can help you, too!
Motivation- more so, a lack thereof- has become its own market.
From YouTube channels with powerful stock videos of athletes and lions to Instagram pages dropping mind-blowing quotes on the hour, gurus and life coaches are laughing to the bank. I applaud them in all seriousness.
We, as a collective species, can’t kick ourselves into gear. Even those who are God-tier productive hit their low points.
You have to do it. You might even want to do it. But you just…don’t. I probably don’t have to e...
I grew up in a super cluttered household. My family were not hoarders or unclean by any means- but we always had too much stuff.
You can imagine that this turned me into a semi-minimalist. Now I cherish the ability to declutter whenever I can. Getting rid of things I have no value or use for in my life has become an enjoyable, monthly pastime.
Clutter is extremely unhealthy for us. An article by Clutter Healing explains it far better than I ever could, so I recommend you read that article whe...
Having a blog is an excellent way to grow your business. It pulls your audience to your website and helps you stake a claim in the online business world.
An article by YUGASA Software Labs gives some great examples that back up my claims! However, you may be confused or overwhelmed when it comes to the exact steps you should take to start your blog.
Though the steps won’t be crazy fast in the real world, there are only a few you’re going to have to take to set up your new blog. Read closely!
Self-improvement has a habit of being one of two things- improving yourself as a human, and trying to become someone else.
I can assure you that embracing the billionaire lifestyle you see in your motivational Facebook group isn’t the key to turning your life around. In fact, it might make you feel lesser than because you hate getting up at 5 A.M. and doing 50 crunches.
Here are a few toxic self-improvement mantras that are being thrown around, and why you should ignore them.
“Wake up early t...
As a freelance writer, WordPress was a must for my business. I can say with confidence that I wouldn’t choose any other platform!
However, I understand the intimidation of WordPress. When I first started I had no clue what I was doing. I admit that I ended up crawling to a friend, pleading with them to set it up for me.
A little bit pathetic on my end? Maybe.
Did it work? Uh-huh.
Yay for my effort.
Unfortunately, I was still forced to soak up the platform’s ins and outs on my own time. Now Wo...
Fear is instilled by negative affirmations. Oftentimes, the only way to break the dam of these negative affirmations is to chip away with positive ones.
It can take quite a long time, depending on how deep a hole fear has chucked you into. But there is always a way out. Affirmations are excellent for our brains.
Though the saying ‘If you tell yourself something enough times, it will become true in your mind‘ has a bad rep, you can take advantage of it when it comes to your chronic fear.
If you’re here looking for confidence, I’m going to let you in on a secret.
You never lost your confidence. Children aren’t born to be self-conscious, doubtful, and unhappy with themselves. When we’re kids, we’re not interested in how we look or our abilities or our intelligence.
Outside influence is what instills the toxic habit of low self-confidence. It could have been failure, harsh realities, family or toxic friends and teachers.
Whatever the reason, you don’t have to fret about building...
There are so many people out there who remain where they are, what they are, and how generations before them have been.
You may be worried that you’re one of them. Assuming you have evidence to back up these claims- such as not being where you want to be despite having the resources to get moving- I’ll help you out with this.
So, you have goals.
There’s this version of you that you truly believe is within you that needs help coming out. Whether this version of you owns a business, looks, feel...
So you’re a freelance writer. Unfortunately, dynasties rise and fall before you’re finished writing a piece.
Faster writing means more projects done in a week, month, and year, and that means better moolah potential in the long run. So whether your goal is to get to 1,000 or 5,000 words in an hour, here are some tips that will help you out.
1. Find a writing hobby in your spare time
You’ll be more likely to pick up the habit of writing faster when you’re enjoying yourself, so you’ll be traini...
Like any field in the history of fields, being a freelance writer comes with its own set of myths.
They range from hindering yourself and your confidence, to outright stopping you in your tracks. They can leave many freelance writers confused or worried about their futures. I’ve been there, and this is totally valid.
But believing and spreading these myths is like asking an artist if they’re poor or telling a plumber that they’re uneducated.
Let’s kibosh them right here and now.
Myth 1: You n...
The best life advice never comes easy. Sure, the life advice in question may at times bruise your pride, or take a jab at your work ethic. It may also ‘threaten’ your comfort, contradict your role models, or break the barriers of your environment.
But the advice usually only stings for a while. The great news is, that if the advice is implemented into your life and mindset, you can only come out ahead in the situation. Learning, growing, and breaking the barriers of how you perceive yourself ...
The mindset we tote around daily is vital to how we live, perceive, and react and it helps with your daily habit as a freelancer.
It might as well be your greatest asset to sticking through the rough spots – and ultimately, your career.
You have to turn your job into your skill, your skill into your passion, and your passion into a daily habit.
So if freelancing is your mission, then you’re going to want to harness daily habits for your mindset that will help you succeed.
But you might be con...
