Not sure if it's unique or not. Just a journey that I am going through and hoping to make it successful, so maybe I can inspire someone else who needs to help him/herself.
Yes thats right, but self improving journey is always a thing that all we need

Consistency is all you need to achieve your goals, and I think you have it already. Continue that way to be successful.

UPDATE 11
It is the end of the month, so let us see the finances first.

Earnings (Monthly) -
Private work = $940
Trading = $0
Business "Online" Income = $0

Total Monthly Income of February = $940
Goal = $5000 (4060 more to go).


Work Update -
This month was better than normal, thanks to the new client I got and one of the previous clients working with me more. I had to stop advertising for my private work due to some government thing. Now luckily it got sanctioned, so I can start advertising again from next week onwards. In my free time, I have started to work on a coding project for my family. I am happy to be coding again, as it is my backup plan.

Haven't been getting any time for the jewelry business, maybe in the future I might be able to work it, so far nothing due to lack of funds to put an advertisement. Once I start earning more than I might. Work-life has been decent so far, thank god.

Personal Life Update -
Life can be funny sometimes. The love of my life, the girl I was supposed to marry in the future has HIV 1 & 2 (STDs). Luckily I didn't get it from her. I knew that she had it from Day 1, but I thought I could manage around it, but now I don't think I can. My work is in the Fitness Industry, which involves touching other people, so I cannot risk having it.

I thought about having no physical marriage, because I love her so much, but she said she will be reminded of the mistakes that she did every day.I don't want her to live a life of regret if in case I get sick too, so I plan on breaking up with her in August when she doing her Masters's Degree and has a lot of people to support her during this tough time.

I will have to be tough emotionally in the coming months, I want to be with her, but I do not know how to. I guess this is what is written, with the karma I created, I will accept whatever it is strongly and gladly.

I know this journey feels more like Life Journey than Financial Journey. But I wish to be honest and show people, in life, you will have to stay strong.

"Accept" the fate with a smile and move on.

UPDATE 12
It is the end of the month, so let us see the finances first.

Earnings (Monthly) -
Private work = $775
Online Business = $0

Total Monthly Income of February = $775
Goal Monthly = $5000 - $775 = - $4225


Work Update -
The work has been less this month because my students have been having their exams/busy with work/holidays. This hit me a bit financially, but it is fine. I am only working 2-3 hours a day currently for my private work as work is just less. but it is predicted to pick up in mid-April.

In my free time from my private work, I am focusing on building a web app to help my Father, It is helping me improve my coding skills, which had gone bad for some time. Languages I know -
1. Python, Django
2. Javascript, React

I have 2 jobs lined up for next month to move away from freelancing and move into a more stable income environment with a salary and all the necessities. Hopefully, I get the one that I am hoping for, which should help me financially and take a better step forward in my career and life. Currently, I feel scared, to be honest, and upfront with my clients and also, I am not able to choose my clients or the times that I wish to train them, all because I do not have enough of them. Like they say beggars cannot be picky. That is why I wish to be in a position very soon where I am picking the clients that I wish to teach, rather than the other way.

It will only happen in 2 cases -
1. I am financially secure from a business other than my full-time job.
2. I have a lot of lessons to do, so I need to be picky because I cannot accommodate everyone, internally meaning I am earning well.

That is why getting this new job is important for me.

If you are following my journey, I would like your advice on how you found what business you wanted to do other than your full-time job. I wish to start with a long-term business, but I am just not sure what it is for me. I guess I need to put my mind to it and hopefully, the idea comes along. But I wish to decide on something, so I have a vision and a goal.

Personal Life Update -
Still planning on being with my GF. Things sorted themselves out and the person improved. Trying to be ok with the sickness, so let's see how that goes. But mostly my focus has been on work, will think about relationships and girls later.

Family wise everything is fine. I have made better relations with my grandmother as the family separated and lived in different places, since no one is together, there are fewer fights. My relationship with my dad is still shaky, but getting there.

Goals Until Next Month 1st -
1. Try to do everything in my power to get the job that I want and start next month.
2. Finish as much as I can the web app for my dad's business.
3. Create 1 Private work video and post it online. Try to make this one better than the old ones for advertisement purposes.
4. Finalize what business you wish to run in the long run in your life, that will give me satisfaction, money, and happiness.

UPDATE 13
Hit an all-time low. 0 balance at age 24. Went to submit an application for work. Needed money for it. I had enough balance to pay for the application and cab home. I feel like a failure. Had to spend a lot of money on certain things that my mother needed. Couldn't say no. But that cost me my balance.

But I will keep pushing. A day will come and I will look back and see this as a learning experience and it will be something to cherish. I guess low points are important, they teach you the value of things when you have them.

At this point in my life, I do not know -
1. What my long-term project is yet.
2. When will I have a full-time job.
3. Whether I should continue in my current relationship.

I know someday I would have sorted out all these things, and I will be grateful for the tough times.

UPDATE 14

It is the end of the month, so let us see the finances first.

Earnings (Monthly) -
Private work = $1200
Online Business = $0

Total Monthly Income of March = $1200
Goal Monthly = $10000 - $1200 = $8800 less

Work Update -

My advertisements have been working great. On the 9th of April I reached a $0 balance and now after 20 days, with a surge of new clients, I made $1200 dollars this Month!. It is nowhere close to $5000 a month, but I am trying. I am updating the goal to $10000, to give myself more push and higher goals. In total I have 14 clients currently :), and last month I only had 4.

I am getting better at dealing with clients and my drop rate has become much lower than before. I hope I can continue at this pace and I will try to reach $2000 by the end of this month if everything goes well.

In terms of the job application, I am still waiting for the answer from the job I want. The chances of getting it are high, so hoping my best. The maximum revert period is 3 weeks. it is already almost 2. So hopefully in the next 1 week, I should know if I have a job or not.

It will be a big change in my life. Let's hope it goes through.

Personal Life Update -
Everything is fine so far. My dad is struggling financially due to war work is struggling. I cannot help much with my current earnings, but trying my best to increase them as much as I can. I try to do some work for him whenever I get the time. I have been wasting some time lately, need to improve on it too.

I have been regularly meditating which has helped me improve my decision-making and stay calmer instead of getting stressed or worried about small things. I will try to meditate as much as possible in the coming future, as it is what helps me from being scared and anxious all the time.

Goals Previous Month (April) -
1/2/3 - Continue them this month.
4 - I can leave it until I am settled with a new job.

Goals Until Next Month 1st -
1. Try to do everything in my power to get the job that I want and start next month. (Continuing)
2. Finish as much as I can the web app for my dad's business. (Continuing)
3. Create 1 Private work video and post it online. Try to make this one better than the old ones for advertisement purposes. (Didn't do it last month. Need to do on this one - May)
4. Maintain my income and try to increase it as much as possible. Try to be more productive.

You're a big lad. I have read all your journeys, they are very inspiring.
I still haven't started my journey due to the heavy workload, but after reading you, I want to start it right now.
You are doing the right thing by resorting to meditation, it really helps a lot to move forward.
Good luck hope everything works out for you.

Welcome my friend and i am sory for your situation .i've been in a similar situation of you but i've been worse in sense of emotional suport by parents etc .I want to give you a tip amd that one its to forget about programing and learn affiliate marketing .I dont say to quit programing but to earn a income from it you need ages until you learn ,get a job etc and life its short .Affiliate marketing its 50 times easier than programing and you will do money much faster .So learn affiliate marketing and also learn programing and after years you can also be a programer if you like that .It will save you time trust me
