christmas presents should be on the end of your priority list now.

my wife and had a couple of christmas together where we bought absolutely nothing for each other because or the money we didn’t had.

If you just make something that you know she likes and don’t have the time to do as often as she wishes be that a massage or cooking her fav food for dinner on christmas, I am pretty sure she’ll be happy with it.

I would try to get “any” job now and as soon as you have any new option switch to a better one.

If you can’t find anything now, don’t give up it. Be on the lookout continuously.

+1 Just hug your wife in chrismart night and tell her about your plans to make more money with a refreshing mind . make her warm and take care her. She will be happy. Then you can begin to make new changes to give better life!

you don’t have to buy each other christmas presents, that’s only what society dictates, no need to follow it.

The way I see things, it’s not about what your grandfather, or father, or whoever owned or did. It’s all about what you do. And I’m not talking only about money and/or job.

You have your wife. Imho, that single fact makes you very rich man, my friend. As others pointed out, you shouldn’t have to worry about Christmas presents, or at least not about buying them. Make a present, be it a thing or an act you do for your wife or anybody else you might want to make happy during Holidays.

And the thing I always try not to forget: no matter how bad things get, you are only making them worse if you let the depression and despair take over you. Heads up! Put a smile on your face (even if you have to force it at first) ;)

A positive attitude is great to have but don’t expect things to settle themselves and problems fix overnight while you peacefully sleep.

Concrete step you can do is learn a job that can give you some decent money in the future. Is not a quick solution but is the only one if you want a better standard of living.

I have all the respect for people who work in stores but frankly anyone can stock up boxes on a shelf. There is no point for the employer to keep you or just hire some other dude who may ask for less money/work more or is better at kissing the boss back.

+1…Thanks urbazon…. The best words i found here, at least for me.

Dear TNL. Dont think inside those problems. you wont see any door from inside. You have to put the problem infront of you, take a look from a wider perspective, from 360 degree, you`ll sure find your way out from that soon. Just tackle one problem after another… like swallowing… you swallow bit by bit until finish, if you take all at one time, you`ll choke…. like now.

Cheers.. Merry Christmas

When I start to stress about financial difficulties, I always remind myself that we all come to this life with nothing and death is inevitable. Spending time with the people you love and who love you is so much more important and valuable than money and stuff. I bet nobody thinks at death’s door that “I wish I could’ve spent more time at work so I could’ve bought more stuff”.

We all need the feeling of basic security and self-worth, but that isn’t bound to what kind of work we do or how much money we have. However, when you have the feeling of basic security and self-worth, it is soooo much easier to start accumulating material wealth as well.

I wish you all the best on your journey.

My friend, the suggestions stated above are very helpful and should see you through this Christmas season if you set your mind to the task. However, I have some important information I would like to share with you that will help you in the coming years. Your passion matters a lot in this life because that is the ever boiling energy booster that will keep you moving no matter the obstacles on the way. Each and every one of us have certain obstacles we face in this life – it is considered to be the only thing that will make sure we continue to be relentless and strive to achieve our various goals in life.

I have few questions for you and you don’t need to answer it here. You can pen down the answers on a paper and consider the options you have presently.

  1. What are the things you enjoy doing?
  2. Where is your passion positioned?
  3. What are the things you have seen others doing that you wished you were in their shoes if given the privilege? (This is very important because all you need is that passion, readiness, and right channel).
  4. Forget the struggles in life – ask yourself, what is it you really want to do?
  5. Am I really doing what I have always desired to do?
  6. Where do you experience your creativity to be in its highest order? (That is – what do you feel comfortable doing and you find yourself doing extremely well in it).

These six questions above are very important and they give life to the five questions below.

  1. Enjoy doing,
  2. Very creative in doing it,
  3. Have confidence of the result you will achieve,
  4. Very comfortable doing it even amongst competitors,
  5. Where your passions burns intensely even if someone woke you up in the middle of the night/sleep.

We all need money but money always comes to those who work for it. These questions I listed will guide you through for life. It will help you to have vision in life. It will help you to map out how happy you want to be in life – to live a life without worries and a life of full happiness whereby you can sleep like a baby and you have peace of mind knowing that you are doing exactly what you love and you are really good at it Everything above all comes together with the word ‘Passion’ – what you love doing to the extent of obsession. It is very important that you answer the questions with the purpose for happiness and satisfaction other than for the cause for money/fortune.

  • Purpose for happiness and satisfaction – will give you the right answers that will see you through all your life.
  • Cause for fortune – will make you to wrongly choose what others will like to see you doing in life.

Once you have answered it correctly and pen them down the answers in a paper, then you can start immediately to seek nearby opportunities that are related to where your passion is positioned. You can also discuss it with your dear wife to know her opinion in the matter.

“Our future is dead without vision.” Me.

Happy Christmas in advance!
