I hear it time and time again when I talk to people about starting a second stream of income, that they just have “no time”…
We all have the same 24 hours in a day. There is no difference between us in that regard. We’re all busy… whether it’s because of our 9-5; maybe it’s because we have young kids at home who need our “undivided attention”; perhaps it’s because we are a taxi service for our older kids that need to be driven absolutely everywhere (LOL - been there, done that, bought the t-shirt)
The fact is that this life is filled with all the reasons why we can’t do something. Excuses are never in short supply. The problem is that regardless of how busy we think we are, there’s still a lot of time available to grow a second source of income.
We complain about all the things we don’t have, wish we had, wish we could do, if only…
If we continue believing that we don’t have time, then we will never get ourselves out of the situations we find ourselves in… we can continue to live with a victim mentality, hoping that somehow something will magically happen to change our lives…. Maybe we’ll win the lottery; maybe we’ll marry someone rich; maybe we’ll somehow have all the savings we need without actually saving… We could do that but honey, I’m sorry to say that that is not realistic. What is realistic though is that you can use consistent effort towards something that will bring change and growth, instead of wasting time on pointless things. It doesn’t have to take you away from your family… but as we all have heard before (I’m sure) if you’re willing to make the sacrifices you need to do now, you will be able to live a life that is yours and will more than you ever hoped for!
And when I say sacrifices, I mean not watching Netflix until bedtime after the kids are in bed. I mean not wasting time scrolling on your phone but using those moments for your benefit. Like right now for example, I’m on holiday writing this blog… I could convince myself that, hey! I’m on holiday! I’m not going to do anything but relax! I deserve it! I’m going to spend every waking moment with my hubs and do nothing else! I work hard every day… I don’t do that though because I know that consistency is key. That what I do is important to me and my family. And I can absolutely spare some time to show up today and every day for the life I want for myself and those I love!
You have the time you just need to organize yourself and prioritize every moment. If you’re willing to stop making excuses and start maximizing your time for YOUR benefit, I’d love to chat with you.
