Top 7 habits that you can start immediately. Right now!

Top 7 habits that you can start immediately. Right now!

Habit 1: 10x10x10 rule

Whenever you are feeling bad about something, ask yourself these 3 questions:

Is it going to matter after 10 days?

Is it going to matter after 10 months?

Is it going to matter after 10 years?

If the answer for 2 out of these 3 questions is No then it’s not worth your time.

Habit 2: The 1% rule

Pickup any area of your life where you want to improve. Better pick five. Take immediate action and then improve it 1% every day till the time you have become the strongest version of yourself. In a year, you will be 37x better. In 2 years, you will be 1427x better

In 5 years, you would be 77,002,912x better than your current self. If that’s not the best version of yourself then what is?

Habit 3: Say No to negativity

Turn off your TV. Unsubscribe to the mainstream news. Unfollow all the negative people/pages/ accounts on social media. You will suddenly realize that this world is a much better and peaceful place.

Habit 4: Learn to forgive

How many of us are still angry or hurt over something that happened months ago. Would it help you to continue this way? No way. Switch your focus from their fault to your own understanding. Always remember, people are benevolent by nature. It’s the situations which are bad.

Habit 5: Be Grateful everyday

Start your day by being grateful for anything you like. It could be your body, your experiences of past days, your family or anything. Being greatful makes you positive, happier and relaxed. It also strengthen your emotions and makes you optimistic. Are not these all ingredients to success?

Habit 6: Stay healthy

Think of your body as a Bugatti Chiron and maintain it that way. Your body has more value than this. You just don’t realize it yet. When you look good, you feel good. You will also live longer and healthier. It boosts your energy level, confidence and guess what; you can replace a Bugatti but you can never replace your body.

Habit 7: Read atleast 1 book every month

You would need any of these rules if you start reading books. There is so much to learn from the books that even a lifetime is not enough. Bill gates reads 6 hours a day. Warren Buffet reads 600-1000 pages a day. Mark Zuckerberg reads 2 books weekly. Why are the people who are supposed to know it all and have it all are spending so much time in reading?

Bonus habit

Be Binary: Don’t multitask. Do one thing at a time and do it with 100% commitment. Either 0 or 1. Do everything with passion and your life would turn around in a day.

Be an Inverse Paranoid. Believe that the entire universe is conspiring to do you good. Believe that every experience is heaven-sent to do you benefit or to teach you a valuable lesson to become successful.

Just imagine, if you went around all day believing that everything is conspiring to do you good, how much more positive, optimistic and cheerful your life would be.

8 Ways To Earn Income As A Student

By Olumide GlowVille

8 ways to earn income as a student.
A lot of students are usually at sea on matters of making money. They believe they do not have the requisite skill or ability to make money until they have graduated. And since they still have a steady source of regular or irregular income from their parents or sponsors, the pressure is not there to go all out or dig deep to find hidden treasures early enough.

If you are a student, and you would like to start earning your own incomehi, this piece might help you.

You can make money through one or more of the following.

1. Freelance Writing For Blogs or Businesses

If you’re good at writing, you can consider doing freelance writing for top blogs as one way of earning an income as a student.

Aside blogs, many businesses are looking for freelance writers to help them meet their writing and content creation needs, so you can take advantage of this and apply for freelance jobs with these businesses. One of the places you can get these kind of jobs is by registering on Fiverr.

2. Online Design Work

As a student, if you have a knack for graphic design and are really good with or can learn Coreldraw, Photoshop or other graphic design software, doing online design work, like making small graphics for advertisements and designs for websites and businesses, can be a great way to earn an income.

There are a lot of events that happen in school, and if you know how to design well, you will get a lot of contracts for these designs and make a lot of money. You can even get so good and begin to train others for a token.

3. Voice-Over Artist

Still talking about personal talent. Asides writing and designing, you can also let your good voice, if you have it, make good income for you.

Doing voice-over work for production companies and advertising agencies is another great way to earn an income as a student. If you have a great voice and some broadcasting talent, you can apply for voice-over opportunities and get paid doing voice-over work for people and businesses. There are agencies who would pay you well to lace your voice over their ad production.

If you decide to intern at a radio station in the process. You may begin to build a career in advertising and broadcasting even before you leave school.

4. Printing Jobs

Moving to the capital business side now. Since students do a lot of printing work, You can set up a mini-printing business with an easily affordable deskjet printer whose inks can be easily refilled, and start printing for students at your own rates. You can set up this business close to any student’s hostel or even from your room, and be on your way to making some side income as a student.

5. Real Estate/House Agent

This one is more about leg work. If you have a lot of free time to spare and you want to make money from it. Get conversant with your locality, and you can use that free time to search for accommodation for freshers and fellow students in your school environment, charging them a commissions/agents fee for your service.

6. Start a petty trading business.

Yes, schools have butteries. But a lot of students would still prefer to buy from fellow students, especially if your business is within the hostel or closer to them. Raise some capital and start selling the generally needed stuff. Food, drinks, detergents, soaps, etc. As you make profit, you expand until it becomes big. There are a lot of students who are making it big doing petty trading in school.

If you however have more than enough money, you can set up something bigger. Sell computer hardware or software, sell recharge cards, etc.

7. Sell Your Skill.

Whatever skill you have, offer it as a service to people at a cost. If you are good at cooking, considering providing catering services to those in need of it at a reasonable cost. If you are good at sewing, considering making clothes for people at a cost. If you’re good at phone or computer repairs and maintenance, also consider providing this service to people at a cost. You only need to ensure that you market your skills well, and put yourself out there so people can see what you have to offer. You can also sell your services on online sites like Fiverr, Jumia Food etc.

8. Learn A Sellable Skill

Just in case none of the above has got anything to do with you, and you feel like you can’t do anything to make money, there is hope for you.

You can still learn a skill and build it to the point of being sellable. Barbing, Tailoring, Electrical Works, Shoe Design, Manicure and many others are examples of skills you can learn. Approach someone who’s already a master in the skill and learn within months.

You’d be doing yourself and the world a lot of good if you can start thinking of how to be financially stable or independent early in life. Many of us made this mistake, you don’t have to follow in our footsteps.

The world is already hard enough as it is, but you can create a softlanding for yourself by putting yourself to work early and making money.

If you know about some other ways students can make money, please help state them in your comments.

Thank you.

Have a productive week ahead.
