Years ago, I was in my comfort zone. High paying job, good company benefits, nice boss, awesome team mates. But just enough money to support the monthly bills. At the back of my mind, I need to do something. Resigning was a tough decision to make. I know I can still do something without leaving my company.
I search on the internet about financials. I read a lot. I subscribed to blogs, newsletters and got myself some online income. I joined Truly Rich club and devour all financial articles there is. I read books, attended seminars and meet up with financial coaches. It opened a lot of realizations to me.
I definitely got all new ideas, enlightenment and new financial learnings. For almost 2 years this is all I do. I never move forward after that baby step. After all these effort I'm still on the same spot in the cycle of work-payday-bills-work. I know i'm not acting enough.
I prayed for discernment and God answered my prayers. I claimed that God wanted me to move forward, take risks, let go so i can receive what He has in store for me. True enough, after I resigned from my previous company, took risks in moving out of the country, He gave me a birthday gift- a job in Singapore. Action definitely attracts abundance.
Now I started to invest in the stock market and mutual funds, got myself a health insurance and now able to save up for my emergency fund. I'm on the way to finally clearing up debts and now coaching Overseas Filipino Workers as part of my advocacy to help spread financial literacy. I also share through my Pinay Helpdesk Mom blog bits and pieces of financial concepts and experiences.
It's always true: "Nasa Diyos ang awa, nasa tao ang gawa".
How about you, have you acted enough to reach that dream?
