Work With What You Have

Work with what you have

Note to you: I stumbled upon my drafts and noticed I’ve never completed this post from March. As our site grew, I now have more input on this subject. It’s a shot of motivation that I hope will get you to focus on what you can do with what you have now.

In a world full of greed, what does everybody want? More. More money, more tools, more help. More of everything. Frankly, moreRead the rest

Patience vs. Waiting (Be Patient but Don’t Wait)

Patience vs. Waiting

Poor girl, waiting instead of getting shit done.

The most exciting/anxiety-inducing thing growing up was waiting on a package. To be honest, it’s still exciting to get a package in the mail. It was very rare though as a child, and as I bugged my mom about when my new game or whatever it was, was coming, she’d just tell me to be patient, it’ll get here when it gets here. That’d often make … Read the rest

Keep a Clear Mission

My blogging notebook

My mini-outline of this post

I don’t write any post on LW without preparation. There’s just no point. I want to make sure that what I write serves its purpose and I cannot do that without preparation. A police officer doesn’t just wake up and fight crime. He has to put on his uniform, get mentally right to do his job, and know where he’s going. Knowing where you’re going is a crucial part … Read the rest

Whatever you do, Give it your all

2 Men Arm Wrestling

Instead of money on the line, it’s your goals and ambitions.

Eight months ago, this blog was born. Right before the site became live, I had to purchase a hosting package and domain. I was very hesitant because I had a history of ideas and “burning passions” that gave me so much enthusiasm but ended up dying away. “But not this blog”, I told myself. I told myself I would stick with it and not … Read the rest

Always Dress Your Best

A man that can dressPersonally, I enjoy fashion. Scratch that. I enjoy looking good. Who doesn’t? Nobody plans to go out and look ugly but many of us do not even attempt to clean up our appearance. Who cares right? It’s my body, I don’t need to impress everybody. True, you don’t need to impress EVERYBODY, but you should care about the image of yourself you project to others.

You are a walking advertisement. Everything you do, look … Read the rest

Why More Time Away is NOT the Answer

That's enough of vacation...

Writing this as I return from my extended hiatus I feel a bit hypocritical, but I come to share some knowledge in my mistake. Spending months away from Lonely Wallet did not do any good for me or you whatsoever. This taught me a hard lesson that is present in all things in life with “extended vacations” and taking more time away than necessary. Like the corny toothpaste slogan, “If you’re not whitening, you’re yellowing”.… Read the rest

Avoid Being Boxed – Decategorize Yourself


Mini Person made of Cardboard

In the beginning, our minds were feeble and we looked to our parents for everything. We copied them to understand correct behavior to gain their approval. This helped our young selves to get what we wanted so we adjusted our behavior as so. This mindset is necessary as a child as it helped us understand basic communication and social structures. The problem is, this mindset tends to carry well into our adult years. Instead … Read the rest

Experience Trumps Knowledge

Library - full of books

I recently finished my driving classes where the instructors taught us a lot about almost every aspect of driving: driving on city streets, country roads, and in all types of weather, etc. etc. The teachers do a good job making sure the students understand the laws and clearing up any confusion that may come with driving. Finally, I got behind the wheel, but I had very limited experience as I do not drive that much. … Read the rest

How to Endure Boring Work

A man reaching for his phone

For the sake of the post, let’s imagine a man named Paul. Paul here constantly has burning passions to start an endeavor whether it be a new skill, craft, sport, etc. This time he wants to start learning the piano. He watches dozens of videos of guys covering popular, complicated songs with, it seems, little effort. This only fuels his motivation even more. Paul immediately goes out to buy a keyboard and sits down and … Read the rest

Love Criticism. Don’t Hate It.

Blurry Glasses

At the end of my junior year in high school, I got into fashion and was determined to improve my appearance. How you look can affect your mood and esteem and is an excellent part of yourself to work on. Some months earlier, I saw some maroon Sperry boat shoes on sale out of town and quickly snatched them up. I finally found something to wear with them and I went to school with my … Read the rest
