My flaws

Flaws

I have many flaws. Today, I will share some of them with you:

1. Too motherly

A lot of my friends have complained to me stating that I nag them too much. I agree. I honestly do not intend to nag you guys so often. I will work on it.

Some common feedback: 

“You’re like my mom.”

“You’re worse than my mom.”

Taking Responsibility

Responsible

This is a topic that has been on my mind for quite some time. In life, we have a tendency to blame others for our problems or failures. When something doesn’t go the way we want it to, it’s usually, “Oh, it’s because of ________.” Or it’s because ________ happened”.

Most of us rarely admit, “It’s our fault.”

That is because, we don’t like thinking it’s our fault.

We blame everyone but ourselves. 

For example, if you had a bad professor and you did poorly in the class, you might say, “It’s because of the prof! He/she can’t teach! It’s so unfair. He/she is totally biased.” And so on.

However, stop for a minute and ask yourself.

What did you do? 

Did you attend every class?

If you did, were you paying attention?

Did you procrastinate on your assignment?

There are many factors that could affect your grade. Yes, perhaps the professor was bad, but you were the one who made the choice to attend class or not; to pay attention or not; to procrastinate or not.

You are responsible for your own actions. 


Remember, bad things happen to everyone, but you do not have to react a certain way.

If you blame everyone else for your problems, you are literally saying you have no control over your life. Don’t allow others to dictate your life. Be the driver of your emotions.

In addition, if people can sense how you will react, they can easily choose to manipulate you. Think about it. Those who are successful are not easily fazed.

Accountable

Things to consider when investing

Investing

Last week, I shared some conversation tips with my readers. This week, I would like to share some investment tips. Originally, I wasn’t planning to blog about this today. However, the recent stock market turmoil has pushed me to do so.

The issue with the stock market is that people are too greedy and self absorbed. They think they can time the market. They believe they can make quick money.They know risk is involved, but it doesn’t occur to them that they could lose everything.

In my opinion, the stock market will go up in the long run. There will always be ups and downs, but generally, if you are investing for long term, you’ll be fine. HOWEVER, if you’re looking to make a lot of money in a short amount of time, it is very VERY risky.
