Are You Having Tough Times?

Are you unemployed? You can’t find any work? You don’t know where to turn? Times are tough in today’s economy!

It’s hard to make a joke when you have no where else to turn, but I always try to look on the bright side of things. So I will share a few reasons why being poor isn’t all that bad.

1. You have true friends- They definitely don’t just like you for your money because you don’t have any.

2.You don’t have to worry about anyone trying to steal from you- You don’t have anything of value worth stealing.

3. You don’t have to worry about going to the doctor or the dentist- This is way to expensive to even consider doing.

4. Going on a diet- What’s this you don’t have any money to go out and buy junk food, nor to go out and eat anywhere’s , A Big Mac and fries what is that?

5. Having a vehicle- Nope no car, just think all the headaches you don’t have to worry about here, not having to buy gas, insurance, oil changes, and all of the other expenses associated with owning a vehicle. Just think about all the exercise you will be getting from walking every where you go.

6. Tax time- You wont have to worry about getting all your paper work together nor finding and paying an accountant to do your taxes since you have no income to claim.

7. Taking vacations- What vacations, just think you won’t have all the stress associated with planning a vacation let alone all the packing, nor the headaches of putting up with all those idiots at the airports. You can just sit home and relax in your own yard.

8 Having a gym membership- Why would you even want to do this you get all your exercise walking everywhere you go. Who cares about appearances anyways?

Ok everyone I know I got a little carried away here, but it was meant as an eye opening article. I hope I didn’t offend anyone writing this. Don’t take anything that you have for granted. Be thankful for everything that you do have, including your friends. Life can sometimes be tough but if you just keep the faith and never give up on your dreams you will succeed. Where there is a will there is a way.

Life would not be worth a whole lot with out all of the material things we have in it. Your subconscious mind controls all the vital processes of your body and knows all the answers to your problems. Keep your subconscious mind busy with the expectations that good things will happen and your subconscious will faithfully reproduce your habitual thinking. Imagine the happy ending or solution to your problem, feel the trill of an accomplishment and what you imagine and fell will be accepted.

Always remember you have the freedom to choose what to do with your life. What ever the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve.

HI Clark, Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I am Happy to see you enjoyed my article.. When I lost my job as a bar manager I became so depressed I couldn't find any work in my field. I did go back to waitressing and this was something that I told my self I would never do again. After a month or so I just walked out and took my search online. I knew people were doing it and that I could to. Well to make a long story short I joined a community of online entrepreneurs and my online Journey began. I no longer worry about punching timeclocks :) I will never let myself fall into that trap again, I now have multiple incomes streams..

I love this article. i've been on an economic roller coaster since 2008 when I lost a great job. The architectural design field is now dead for the foreseable future. It's OK. I've survived just fine. I did have to learn how to live on a quarter of what I was earning. A little humility never hurt anyone. I'm an optimist and I try to look on the good side. I'll just keep on truckin.
