Freefalling Through Life

You go to high school.. Then you either get a job, join the military, or go to college.. Quite simple right? Well as any adult will tell you.. Wrong.. It’s a complex world out there.. There is no black and white guideline for you to follow.. It feels like your on top of the world at graduation day.. Then quickly realize that your actually freefalling.. Life comes at you hard.. It’s not as easy as you thought it would be.. But that’s no excuse for just wildly falling down.. Away from what you want to do, what you can do.. You just need to turn it into a controlled freefall.. To align yourself with what you actually want.. Then actually you’ll start climbing back up…

Look we all know the daily grind right? Well if not here is a quick recap of some of the very basic highlights for you… Bills are not a joke.. Your credit score defines you.. Your skills will open or close the doors to dreams.. Determination makes achieving happen.. Work is a necessity not an option.. Well if your not from a trust fund situation that is..

Okay are you caught up? Good.. We have covered the extreme basics of what you will need to succeed.. And chances are that if your reading this article, who know all of the above.. And you know what I’m trying to spill right? Perhaps.. Perhaps not..

Do you know that overwhelming chaos that seems to push you down the mountain of life? It has to push you down, because its that helpless feeling when you have no idea what to do.. And many people stall out.. Just continue to fall down this proverbial mountain.. But not you guys.. Not if you read this blog.. We’re not about that..

What makes us manic? What makes us different from all of the others? We simply refuse to let it stop us dead in our tracks.. But if you find yourself at a crossroad.. That impassable impasse.. I’m going to give you a checklist of resources to help guide you.. If your about to graduate high school, college or transition from the military this basic checklist should cover the basic necessities in which your about to face…

Life (Food, Clothing, Rent/Buy Home)

Go to the deals section of this site..

Boys and girls remember that food, clothing, car, and your home are not cheap.. Budget accordingly.. If you are completely consumed with partying, or shopping.. Budget accordingly.. Be prepared for a lifestyle shift.. So many people shoot for the I want it all mentality and screw up their opportunities due to this.. Trust me.. The more prepared you are the “easier” the challenges in this life will be… And please try not to live on loans..
