How To Manage or Maximize Low Income

The earnest desire of every man is to have that huge income flow but most times getting that job that guarantees that is not easy to come-by, So in this case one has to make do with what is available at the moment.

Struggling young couple

In this very piece i will outline and explain the various ways to effectively maximize that low income that you earn so as to satisfy your needs.

You can agree with me that it is not always about how much you earn that matters but how well you manage the much you earn cause the rich and famous we have in the world today did not just get to where they are at the moment by magic but rather most of them started with just a low income at there disposal and applied the following steps below:

Avoid Debt:

Every debtor is a slave to the creditor. Try your best to live a life free of debt cause when one's income is dependant on a salary you see that once you owe someone and you are expectant of your salary come month end, the majority of the salary goes to your creditor living you with little or nothing after remitting your debts. I know that most times it's very difficult to avoid but if you can try your best possible to avoid debts so that your income can be used for other important things.

Be Contented:

Almost everyone would love to live that luxurious life no doubt but with low income that kind of life is just unattainable. Try to be contented with that little you get and not try to live that life or buy that expensive cloth and shoes because Mr A/B bought, my dear all fingers are not equal and to everything on earth there is a season. Be satisfied with that less expensive cloth and shoes at your disposal, your season will surely come.

Set your priority right:

In life we have needs but basically some are more important than the others it's now left for you to ascertain which one to discard in order to satisfy the other cause sometimes we tend to neglect this little things and end up doing the wrong things at the right time. Draw a chart representing those most important needs of yours so as to help manage that low income flow.

Spend less on transport and trek more:

People spend a lot on transport on daily basis without knowing, well that's not a big deal if you have that huge income flow but when your income is low you just have to trek more and spend less on transport. I an not saying that you should trek a thousand mile on a daily basis, that's not my point. My point is this; some people do not like to stress themselves at all thereby spending a lot of money jumping from one cab to another when they could actually decide to stress those legs a little and use the money for some other vital needs. So try your best to spend less on your transportation and stress those legs a little, it's part of exercise you know..

Make a budget before time:

It is very important that you outline specifically what and what you will spend your income on before it comes so that you do not get confused and utilize your income on irrelevant things. Proper planning can help maximize that low income of yours effectively.

Stick to your plan:

It is not enough to have that perfect plan and expect it to work out perfectly. It is very important that you stick to that very plan of yours and not let anything or anyone make you do otherwise and in the process you end up deviating from your earlier plan which may lead to some miscellaneous spendings that are irrelevant. So always stick to that plan of yours no matter the pressure.

In conclusion: it is not about how much you earn but how well you spend. "Keep that in mind".

How Failure Lead To Success

Failure which is an act of being unsuccessful in a certain task or endeavor can lead to your success story IF you do not give up.

You can believe with me that 99% of all success stories are built on failures, delays and mistakes. It is never an abomination that one fails in an exam or task rather it is a wake up call to correct what made you fail at first and then give it another shot.

As the holy book rightly says that "delay is not denial" in other words whatever will be will surely be.

History made us to know that the inventor of light bulb "Thomas Edison" failed one thousand (1000) times in his quest to invent the light bulb that you and i enjoy today but yet he did not give up and that led to his success. The famous basket baller "Michael Jordan" lost almost 300 games, missed over 900 shots and failed to score the games winning shot 26 games and when asked the reason behind his success he says that it all boils down to his constant failure that those failures motivated him to shoot for success.


Believe: Have that believe first in yourself and secondly in what you do, never let anyone or any thought make you believe that are not good enough or you cannot succeed. Always have that self belief in your abilities and capabilities and you will surely succeed.

Perseverance: Thomas Edison and Michael Jordan would not have succeeded if they did not persevere. It takes perseverance to try something over and over again even after getting many rejections and failing countless times. No matter how many times you fail always persevere and you will surely succeed at it one day.

Focus: Never let any factor make you lose your focus, always be mindful of what goes on in and around you and also be mindful of the thoughts you welcome so you don't miss the mark.

Giving Up: This thought should never be considered cause it's never an option as the saying goes "Quiters never win and Winners never Quit" take note of that.

N.B: When you fail, do a review. What do i mean by that? Trying outlining what actually led to your failure and look for ways to correct your errors or mistakes so you don't fail and that very task again. Remember "Every step you take draws you closer and closer to Success.

Never Live To Impress Human

Every human created by God is unique in one way or another. Science made us understand that during sexual intercourse hundreds of sperm are released into the vagina but only one survives and reproduces, that is enough reason to make you know that you are special.

In every being created by God lies one special gift or talent, that one thing that when you engage yourself in it, you find it very easy and simple because it's already in you, so your job now is digging deep and discovering it and nurture it so as to be the very best in it.

Never engage in any activity Mr A or Mrs B wants you to but rather engage in it because you find joy and happiness engaging in it regardless of what people say or feel.

This is what happens when you live your life to impress Mr A or Mrs B

1. You will not be good at it.

2. You will not be happy living that life.

3. When you fall short finding you way back is always difficult.

4. Even when you eventually succeeds, right inside you won't feel joy and fulfilment.

5. When you live life to impress you always see yourself living a fake life.

6. Impressing human is almost impossible.

But when you live your life not thinking of impressing anybody..

1. You feel absolute joy and happiness.

2. You can always find your way back when you fall short.

3. When you succeed in anything you have joy and fulfilment.

4. Everything about this life is real.

5. You feel less tension.

6. No one can live this life better than yourself.

Main causes of living a life to impress others and how to overcome..

I will say that the main causes are low self esteem and No self confidence.

Whenever your self esteem is low and you have no confidence in yourself, you will always be a victim of this life.

Work on your self esteem and confidence by having faith and belief in your abilities and capabilities, not getting intimidated by someone else's achievements "cause you know what"? It's only a matter of time before you achieve same and even more (so far you work hard).

In conclusion: Your destiny is not in the hands of any being but only in the hands of God, So only live your life to impress your Creator.

Having Control Over Your Emotions

It is without doubt that we show our real self/character when we get very angry, do you agree with me on that? I guess you do.

Emotions which is a strong feeling of either joy or anger, the anger part of it is where my i will focus on in this write-up.

Anger is a state of mind caused by strong displeasure. I will say that it is absolutely natural and normal to get angry cause that is just the way we were created. But my worry is sometimes some people do some crazy and unimaginable things when they get angry which they regret later on when they are sober and most time we found out that the particular reason why we lost our cool and probably made some utterances or did some unimaginable things all in the name of anger was not just worth it, trust me.

I know that some people can really really be annoying but even at that taking action almost immediately can never make things better cause no decision taken in anger can ever be helpful. Finding it difficult controlling your anger? After reading the control measures below you will find it easier from today.

                      How To Control Your Anger 

Take a deep breath: Our breath tend to rush when we are angry which is not a good thing. Just take a moment and take a deep breath cause speedy breath can only increase your anger.

Do not talk: keeping quiet is key in this situation cause talking in the heat of the moment can only worsen the situation, I know it is quite difficult to hold back without expressing yourself verbally but that will not solve the problem so keep still.

Think less about it: Do not think of what was said or done to you that made you lose your cool, as a popular saying says "situations are either good or bad but thinking makes it so" (my favourite quote actually)

Take a glass of cold water: It sounds funny but it is very effective because it can help cool and stabilize your body temperature thereby restoring a degree of calmness in your body and mind.

Take a walk: Taking a long walk can help reduce the stress and tension, restore calm and also make avoid saying or doing things that you will regret later.

Dialogue: One funny thing about anger is that it varnishes under little time especially when the damage has already been done. After taking that long walk, sit down with the person you had misunderstanding or problem with and have a talk with the person, stating what and what the person did that you do not like and he/she will in turn speak his/her mind about your differences and trust me this time around you both will be in the right state of mind to settle your differences amicably.

So you see anger is no big deal but we make it one. If you can apply those control measures whenever you get angry, there will not be any cause for alarm.

Quote of reference: "Situations are either good or bad but thinking makes it so"
