What an overwhelming generation we subsist in.
We have real estate investors, social media managers, Forex traders, NFT millionaires, day trading gurus, e-Commerce experts, paid Instagram vixens, Crypto traders, affiliate marketers and the list goes on. We’re engulfed in this pressure to pick up a lucrative side hustle and turn ourselves into overnight millionaires. Yes, it sounds ideal and it’s possible. It’s in knowing that it’s possible that we are left feeling behind the curve if we haven’t achieved that financial and physical freedom that wealth provides.
Today the ideology of a 9 to 5 job is just as disgusting as that mustard on an Oreo TikTok trend.
It has no appeal but let’s be clear, that same 9 to 5 can help fund the dream – never forget that! That said, what are we to do? What new skill should you pick up? What classes should you take? What should you invest your money in? Your first investment should be “self,” “self” needs to fully understand the investment or new skill opportunity – that’s priority. Yes, you should put your money in the stock market and crypto etc. if you so choose but, make it a wise investment. Don’t just watch a Youtube video and throw yourself into the fire based on what one alleged “expert” stated. Do your due diligence and take your time.
This generation is negatively obsessed with time.
We always assume we are running out of it and yes, it’s true, everyday we are getting closer to our death date. However, rushing into risky investments, all in the hopes of getting rich quick is not a strategy; it’s the microwavable option. We want everything insta-fast but true wealth is built over Mr.Inevitable Time and yes, you could flip your $500.00 NFT into $15,000. You could learn how to day-trade and make $40,000 a day but, you don’t have to do it all and you’re not a loser if you don’t catch the alleged “Next Big Wave”, there will be another and another and another. Don’t lose your life’s savings trying to compete with Instagram flexers and TikTok talkers.
Slow down! Take your time.
If something piques your interest, learn about it – don’t obsess about it and after you’ve done your due diligence, if it seems like a good investment – go for it. But don’t invest out of F.O.M.O (Fear of Missing Out). Whatever you want to learn about, you can but, pick one or two things to learn about and take a year or so to delve into them, not a month or a week – a true skill is honed over time. I can’t stress that enough. Stop rushing, you are right on time and you are right where you need to be. If you don’t like it, make a change – a wise one.
