A Basic Question to Ask Yourself Before Trying to Earn More Money

Standard

I am a great fan of financial freedom personally and especially in these economic conditions globally it is a must to have your finances right. Who doesn’t like some extra money every month? Everyone of us does but I would like to through a question here, and this question has come to my mind after a recent Ted Talk about a lifelong research conducted at Harvard and it is still going on.

The researchers wanted to know the reason why some people at their later ages seem to be more happy, healthy and wealthy? and on the contrary why some people die early with poor finances, bad health and disturbed lives.

This research is incredible in terms of its coverage, time and continuity. Why? because it almost covered four generations and studied them every year with what is going on in their lives to come up with the answer of the question that what makes people live longer, healthy and wealthy?

The answer is so simple you won’t ever think is the answer. It is a one word and that word is “Relationships”.

Yes, Relationships my friends. This research concluded that people who were good with their relationships with other people and their community, tend to be healthy, wealthy and live longer than the people with bad relationships.

So what is this research telling us? Well there are couple of things:

  1. Your current financial status doesn’t guarantee that you will end up financially secure, healthy, happy and live longer.
  2. The best thing you can do to yourself is get out of poisonous relationships, this is the biggest service you can do to yourself, believe me its not necessary to keep going on a train that you know is not getting you to your destination. Change it!
  3. To live a long, happy, healthy life you really don’t need a bunch of money bags, its the people around you who get you through life and how you interact with them.

Here is that Ted Talk:

So what is my point here? Well all I wanted to say that before hustling for money and draining all your energy for it, please ask yourself what is really important in your life? Take care if you are missing out something big in life when you are busy thinking about or making more money because money is a tool that is essential for your needs but relationships are the tools essential for a long, happy and healthy life and more wealthy too.

Tell me what you think? I would love to add a constructive dialogue to this post.

P.S. I will be writing often now, no seriously I promise 🙂

Mudassir Mustafa Says Hello To Everyone!

Standard

Hi this is Mudassir Mustafa, MBA in Marketing, 31, a full time employee in a multinational and a passionate writer and blogger with background in Marketing Research. This domain MudassirMustafa.Com was registered long ago when I started to learn Internet Marketing way back in 2009, from that time I’ve been consistently successfully procrastinating and waiting for the right time to write my first blog post. It’s almost December 2014 and this is my first post. In this whole time I dint sit idle, I kept reading a lot of material related to Internet Marketing and got my skills of writing, seo, online marketing strategies, website creation and affiliate marketing strengthened.

So what I am here to say is, from now on, I have decided to consistently post on my blog and come up with lots of different useful topics around expertise I’ve gained in last 14 years. This blog’s main topic will remain internet marketing and related things but I would also be posting about life and its complexities with a perspective of the world and a perspective of myself.

What you can expect from this blog is almost everything here will be something that either I have personally tested or I am sure to test. I have plans to make some useful video courses related to particularly Affiliate Marketing, Website Creation That Brings Money, Self Help and Outsourcing When Necessary.

The world of internet marketing was never so promising, we have lots of tools and platforms where we can go, learn and apply practically anything and earn money off course. The limitations have ended and so the excuses of not being successful with online marketing or earning full time or part time online.

The times have never been so good for the people who genuinely want to help people with their ideas, services or products. We should keep one thing in mind that people don’t want to be sold or marketed; instead people want to make conscious choices for what is good for them and what is not. The idea is to give people that feeling of being good with your idea, product or service.

My intention of finally kicking the first blog post is to take another step towards freedom, freedom of choice, freedom of doing whatever I want to do, freedom of choosing to do what I enjoy doing, freedom of choosing my own timing of work, freedom to be my own boss.

I will be writing another blog post about my online marketing journey soon, so stay tuned, keep reading and commenting on things I share here, because I promise, a lot of really good stuff is coming your way.
