Scientific Study Shows Why People Are Happier During Christmas

…Mey here blogging before bedtime, just put up the Christmas tree today, blogging about Scientific Study Shows Why People Are Happier During Christmas…

…so, why do people feel so happy and jolly around Christmas time?

…well, I always thought growing up that it was because I got to have gifts!

…and then we got to eat good food and see all of our relatives…

…well, that is all still true…

…however, scientific studies have also shown that spending money on other people makes people happy…

…spending money on ourselves, which is what we do all year, does not make people happier…

…so the season of giving is such a happy season because so many of us are spending a lot of time, spending money on the people that we love, or giving to charity…

…I feel pretty happy and I spent all evening searching to spend money on others…

…what about you?

You Can Have It All…And Here’s How

…Mey here listening to truly inspiring music which you can play while you read this post on You Can Have It All…And Here’s How…

…some people think that the idea of having it all is greedy…

…it depends on how you look at it…

…when I write you can have it all, I mean that you can have all that you want to be happy and feel fulfilled…

…this is really what everyone wants anyway…

…and it’s actually noble, and brave, and our destiny to have it all…

…and it is possible…

…it’s possible for you…

…and here’s how…

…Mey here listening to truly inspiring music which you can play while you read this post on You Can Have It All…And Here’s How…

…some people think that the idea of having it all is greedy…

…it depends on how you look at it…

…when I write you can have it all, I mean that you can have all that you want to be happy and feel fulfilled…

…this is really what everyone wants anyway…

…and it’s actually noble, and brave, and our destiny to have it all…

…and it is possible…

…it’s possible for you…

…and here’s how…

Step 1: Decide That You Want To Have It All

…the first step is to decide that you do want all that will make you happy and fulfilled…

…and that your true goal, and your true journey in life, is to live a happy and fulfilled life..

…that’s what having it all means…

…I’ve met people in many different countries who have very different things and lifestyles and yet they would profess that they have it all…

…why?

…that’s step 2…

Step 2: Understand Where Your True Happiness and Fulfillment Lies

…most people are very close to living their dream life…

…they just never decided to do it, and they never actually sat down and thought about what makes them truly happy and fulfilled…

…it’s different for everyone!

…some people like to live in a big city with friends and parties and shopping…

…some people want to live on an island near the beach with few belongings to have to take care of, and only want to go shopping at the holidays, like to read and blog and play with kids (that would be me…)…

…my husband loves to work out at the gym everyday, take naps, eat nice food, go the movies and socialize in person and on facebook…he’s not the outdoors type unless he’s surfing…

…what makes you happy?

…for everyone it is different and unique…

Step 3: Write Down What Having It All Looks Like, Feels Like, Tastes Like…

…have you ever written down what having it all would look like, feel like, taste like, smell like, be like?

…it may shock you to know that writing down and imagining what I truly want has manifested it in my life…

…why is that you ask?

…because when you know what you really want, and you see yourself having it, it becomes real to you…

…then you start to believe in it…

…you could also say that your subconscious mind and the universe now understand what you really want…

…so they help you get it…

…they help you get it by opening up your awareness…

…you see, the great inventors, business leaders, they saw opportunities that were all around us…

…we just didn’t see them the way they did…

…for example, in Hawaii Mr. Bishop of Hawaii saw Hawaii as a wealthy state of integrity…

…he was entrusted with money when other banks failed because he saw that vision…

…and since he was honest with other people’s money…

…he grew a bank in Hawaii that people could trust…

…thus allowing commerce to grow…

…he lived in the same place as many others, he just saw opportunities that others didn’t see…

…because he had his own vision…

…when you know what you want, you will start to see ways to make it happen, and then you will do the next step…

Step 4: Take The Action Steps Necessary To Have It All In Your Life Now

…the next step is to just do what you have to do to make it happen…

…if you have done steps 1-3 you will find this step is a lot easier now…

…because you see what you need to do and now you just have to go do it…

…Financial Freedom is something that I’m passionate about…

…when I realized that I wanted it, I started to take the steps to make it come true in my life…

…I reduced the hours I worked to half…

…I decided to live in Hawaii and enjoy the beaches, learn to surf, hang out at the beach everyday…

…my life changed because I decided what I wanted…

…it’s not instant…

…and yet, the day I started surfing everyday it felt pretty instant…

…and I do the work, I researched the steps, and I save my 10%+ every time I get paid, and I reduce my expenses and I increase my passive income…

…there’s really nothing else to it…

…so whatever it is that you want, start taking the action steps now to make it happen…

Step 5 Enjoy Your Life By Using Gratitude

…this is actually all the steps combined because this is all you need…

…if you are wondering how to do this, practice gratitude…

…what are you thankful for…

…think about it, and write it down…

…everyday, feel how grateful you are for your spouse, your children, your family, your parents, your country, the money that you have now, the ability to read this post, the fact that you found a friend who will support you…

…whatever it is…

…the fact that you are breathing…

…that you are alive, today in this moment…

…that you can walk, or read, or that you have hands…

…the fact that you can see…

…tap into gratitude, and enjoy your life, and the journey that you are on right now…

…whatever it is…

…because it’s your journey…

…and it’s magnificent…

…it’s a wonderful and heroic journey…

…that only you can go on…

…it’s yours and it’s beautiful…

ENJOY IT!

A Millionaire Real Estate Investor’s Guide To Making a Good Investment

…Mey here blogging on a Thursday evening after enjoying a wonderful glass noodle tofu salad and a Thai curry shrimp (yum), chatting with old and new friends at a Christmas party, and now at home with tonight’s blog A Millionaire Real Estate Investor’s Guide To Making a Good Investment…

…if you are like the many people who want to invest in real estate then this post will help you figure out how to find a good deal…

…my friend who taught me this formula is a millionaire real estate investor…

…he follows this formula when he finds deals in Hawaii…

…so pay attention and use it for yourself!

…my friend who taught me this formula is a millionaire real estate investor…

…he follows this formula when he finds deals in Hawaii…

…so pay attention and use it for yourself!

8% Return Rule

…when the house we are living in went up for sale, I thought it would be a good idea to buy it…

…unfortunately, I didn’t have the capital to buy it (asking was $1,000,000+)…

…so I calculated what the cost would be and profit that would be made through renting and asked him if an investor would want to go in for half…

…he looked at my numbers and said, no, because the return was only 4%, and real estate investors will only put in big bucks if they are getting back at least 8% per year…

…so that’s when I learned the 8% return rule…

Calculate Real Return

…in order to figure out how much we would really make, I had a good grasp of the cost of maintenance and repairs, as well as other costs…

…a lot of investors in real estate start out without calculating all of the costs of owning real estate…

…that included the mortgage, the cost of maintenance and insurances, rental vacancy rates, cleaning up after tenants, eviction costs, etc…

…after calculating the real cost, you can subtract that from the rent, and you get your real return on investment…

…the only reason I could calculate it for the house I lived in was because I lived here so long…

…since it wasn’t a good investment, we didn’t buy it, and someone else did who is renting it to us…

…what can I say, not everyone makes good investments…

Conclusion

…hope you enjoyed this article…

…I’ve read stories of people who are now poor due to their bad real estate investments…

…be a smart real estate investor and work the numbers and do your homework!

…and if you like reading this article, write me a comment below!

…brainstorm whatever you can think of…

Step 3 Envision Yourself Doing What You Love

…the main skills you need is to save money and to invest it wisely, and also to control expenses…

…so how do we teach this to our children?

…as a couple, we have set up a HUTMA (trust account for minors) for our 2 year old son Jordan, and already invested most of it in a 1 year 3% bond…

…we hope to teach our son responsible use of his money be giving him an allowance and having him learn to save and spend wisely…

…we hope to teach our son responsible use of his money be giving him an allowance and having him learn to save and spend wisely…

…and we are keeping his money in a HUTMA for him to manage when he is 18 years old…

…we hope to have him start making management decisions earlier than at 18…

…we believe that giving our kids the freedom to learn is the only way that they will learn…

…I’ve seen some parents that pay for everything their kids want, let them use a debit card and when they go overdrawn, just give them more money…

…these parents often wonder how they are going to teach their children successful money management…

…I wonder why they don’t just let their kids get a part time job and handle their own account!

…and if they run out of money, they run out of money, no need to give them anymore!

…that’s just my opinion though…

…what’s yours?

…how do you teach children to be financially free?

 

P.S. I blog about Financial Freedom because I love it…

…I love it so much that I blog about it 6 days a week…

…and it only takes me an hour and a half a day, and also helps me make money on the side too…

…yet, married couples are more likely to become free because they are a team, a mastermind…

…two heads are better than one…

…so, go ahead and read on and make sure you follow to 7 key steps for married couples to become financially free together

 

Key #1 Saying I Do want to Be Financially Free

…the first key is to actually decide as a couple that you want to be financially free…

...say I DO to financial freedom and that you want it together…

…many couples never do this, never make this pact, and yet, it is Key #1…

Key #2 Divide and Conquer Your Money and Accounts

…some couples throw all their money into one joint account and even though this may seem simple, it actually makes it really hard to manage where you want your money to go…

…there are a lot of different ways to manage your money and we use the Jar System from T Harv Eker

…in this system, you have a financial freedom account already established so you can just follow the system and make it happen…

Key #3 Give Your Spouse Freedom To Spend

…it’s important that both spouses have some freedom to spend on whatever they want…

…this can be accomplished by having each spouse have their own personal spending account…

…if one spouse works as a housewife or househusband, then give that spouse an allowance so that they have their own money…

…most housewives and househusbands are estimated to give about $100,000/year in services (if you were to pay someone else to do all that they do, that’s roughly the figure)…

CLICK HERE for a post I wrote on how Moms Can Become Financially Free

Key #4 Communicate About Your Financial Goals

…when you want to buy something, or go on a trip, or whatever it is…

…if it isn’t coming out of your personal money, and it is going to be a joint expense, communicate with your spouse about it…

Key #5 Respect Your Spouse’s Decisions

…if you want to spend the money in the joint account on a trip to France, and your spouse wants to trade in your car instead, then respect each other and know that you are not going to spend the money until you are in agreement…

Key #6 Enjoy Your Money Together

…the joint accounts are for your marriage, your love for each other, to be spent and a couple…

…make the process fun and happy…

…enjoy your money, and the process of making financial decisions together…

…enjoy the negotiation, and love your money…

Key #7 Monthly Check In Together

…every month see how you are doing…

…did you save like you planned…

…are your investments making passive income…

…are your expenses going down or at least staying the same…

…plot your progress until your passive income finally exceeds your expenses and you both are free!

Conclusion

…getting married is a blessing and if you manage your money properly, you will become financially free together!

…I hope you enjoyed this post…

…tell me what you think in the comments below!

…as you can tell I love my husband and I love sharing knowledge on Financial Freedom…

…do you have something that you are passionate about?

…ever consider blogging about it?

…you might be surprised on how much you can make doing it!

7 Things I Am Especially Grateful For

…Mey here on Thanksgiving Day listening to the pitter pat of the rain outside my window after spending a day with family all over the island of Hawaii, blogging about 7 Things I Am Especially Grateful For…

…the great thing about Thanksgiving is that it brings family together in a time when we normally don’t see each other, and allows us to reflect on all that we are grateful for…

…and there is so much!

…in this post, I list 7 things that I’m especially grateful for…

…Mey here on Thanksgiving Day listening to the pitter pat of the rain outside my window after spending a day with family all over the island of Hawaii, blogging about 7 Things I Am Especially Grateful For

…the great thing about Thanksgiving is that it brings family together in a time when we normally don’t see each other, and allows us to reflect on all that we are grateful for…

…and there is so much!

…in this post, I list 7 things that I’m especially grateful for

1) Children

…children are joy and love, they run and play and they show us who we really are, our vulnerabilities, or love of friends and people, our excitement for fun…

…loving and being grateful for children lets us be grateful for all of us, for we are all children deep down inside…

…and we are all so lovable!

2) Garbage Trucks

…garbage trucks are cool aren’t they?

…the ones we have come up and they have these pick mechanical hands that reach out and pick up the bins…

…and they lift them up and dump them into their big back storage area…

…and all the kids in the school and my son just LOVE to run out and watch them…

…and they also have really friendly drivers who wave…

…finally, they help us take the trash to the facility where it can be properly disposed off…

…which, we all must admit is REALLY IMPORTANT…

…of course, included in this are also recycling trucks and green waste trucks, which really is the same truck of course…

…so much to be grateful for here…

3) Head Stands

…ok, I love head stands…

…I just started being able to do them this year…

…and I love doing them!

…it’s just so much fun to put your head down and lift your legs up and just be upside down…

…I like feeling balanced and fit and also excited about being able to finally do these cool moves…

…in yoga they tell us that doing an inversion everyday where our bottom of our body is higher than the top is good for us…

…we don’t have to do head stands to do inversion, but the headstands are so much fun!

…and I just feel cool doing them…

…seriously, doesn’t everyone just love head stands?

4) Running

…ok, I just love running…

…recently haven’t been running much since my right knee has been hurting…

…though it has made me even more grateful for my legs and body and being able to run!

…and I love running with my son, around in the park, laughing!

…I love running for miles and miles and just going out in nature and being outside…

…I just feel great during and after running…

…really enjoy the runner’s high…

…love how it keeps my body fit and healthy…

…watching others run is fun too!

5) Healthy Food (especially Brown rice)

…when I’m hungry I just love eating brown rice…

…I eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner…

…I had a dream once where I was asked to list my 10 favorite foods…

…my favorite food was actually Fuji Apples…

…however, brown rice was in the top 10…

…today I had some really yummy brown rice for Thanksgiving lunch and it was so crunchy and good…

…brown rice gives me energy, that lets me stay active all day…

…it’s easy to cook and relatively inexpensive…

…it allows for a slow burn of energy all day…

…and it just tastes so good!

…I’m so grateful for brown rice!

6) Fans

…fans are the bomb…

…I mean, who isn’t grateful for a fan when they are hot and need air!

…there were these super size industry strength fans in the airport ceiling today and Jordan and I loved watching them turn…

…they were so strong that the straps for the lines were vibrating…

…they keep us cool and they are cool to look at…

…we have fans all over our house on the ceiling…

…I remember when I used to live in Taiwan and sometimes it would get so hot, and a fan would feel so good!

…fans are one of the greatest inventions of mankind…

…and I am forever grateful for them!

7) Water (especially Warm Showers)

…so, of course, water comprises most of our body and is so important for our health…

…I’m grateful for water and being able to drink so much water everyday…

…on top of that, I’m especially grateful for warm showers!

…when I want to feel clean and relax, sometimes I go to the gym and just hang out in their shower, enjoying the warmth and the feel of the water…

…warm showers are just divine!

…some people love their baths and I love my showers!

…recently my 2 year old son Jordan too loves showers…

…he’ll shower with me and play with the water…

…we have one of those shower heads that you can move around with your hand…

…and so he likes to hold it and direct the water here and there…

…he just loves showers…

…I am so grateful for water and ESPECIALLY warm showers!
