Creating Lifestyle blog on let’s talk

 Creating Lifestyle

Creating Lifestyle is all about finding and developing ideas on how to make our lifestyle interesting and satisfying. Recently  we launched three e-books or, as I prefer to call them, booklets as they are a short  form book.

The first was ‘How to Write something interesting’ by Amelie Rose. This booklet offers advice and ideas for those wishing to write something readable from scratch with no previous experience but without bogging the reader/writer down with too many technical aspects of writing and grammar.

Next was ‘How to Find a Hobby and make Money’

written by Mike C Smith. If you want to fill those spare hours outside of your income-earning activities with something relaxing and enjoyable, the ideas in this booklet will give you some pointers on how to go about finding what suits you. You may even develop a passion for your hobby, finding that it is even capable of providing a part-time income stream. In some cases hobbies have also been known to become a person’s full-time income earner, perhaps the best way to earn your income as it is so enjoyable.

The latest book is ‘How to succeed on a shoestring.‘ This is an ideas book on ways

How to succeed on a shoestring

to find success without it costing heaps to get there. I proved this by developing an off-line  business with less than a hundred dollars at start-up and the same can apply with the internet. You can spend thousands of dollars making a web site, doing SEO’s, graphic design and so on, or you can learn to do most of it yourself and outsource what you are unable to do, but finding the cheaper source.

All three books are available from Amazon. To get to them click the links on the left sidebar.

Creating Lifestyle…

is all about turning things around. Perhaps you feel you’re in a rut and want to make changes but are not sure how to go about it or maybe you are unemployed and want to recreate yourself as a person with confidence and ability.

Sign-up is on the top left. You will receive updates, tips, ideas and strategies for creative thinking. We won’t bombard you with heaps of emails, it may only be once or twice a month, and if you are not happy you can easily  un-subscribe.

I guess most of us would like to change things to suit the lifestyle we want. Sometimes things beyond our control are slowing or stopping us; maybe family members or friends are weighing you down with their demands.
Creating your very own unique lifestyle does still mean that the normal rules for society apply. You still have comply with what the government has put in place, the law having been created for the good of all.

Let’s look at what we want from a perfect lifestyle.

Money is important for most.
Love because we all want to be loved and admired for what we do.
Security and peace because we really don’t want war and violence or to have someone enter our home and do us harm.
Shelter and home, we all need a place we can call home, somewhere we can find rest, peace, love and security.
Health and fitness are necessary for a comfortable lifestyle – we need to be in good health and so much the better if we keep ourselves in good physical condition.
Have I missed anything? What is the most important thing to you?

Reconsider your view of cooking. Is it a necessity your family expects or deserves? Is it an affordable means of putting healthy meals on the table? It’s probably an uncomplicated hybrid of both, and it’s normal to go through the motions of firing up the stove without giving the process too much thought.

What about firing up the status quo instead? Forget about the daily routine for a minute, and think about embarking on a truly rewarding hobby.

Leave intimidation in the kitchen sink.

Place self-doubt in the colander, let it drain, and dispose of the drippings. Cooking is an art form like any other form of expression, but it doesn’t require innate talent or experience. If you have patience and a willing heart for trial and error, you can cook.

Some of the world’s most famous recipes began as family traditions. Did your grandmother make an amazingly moist pound cake? Has your mother made key lime pie so delectable that you can only imagine that limes aspire to careers in her desserts? Ask around for family favorites, and look for ways to add your own personal flair.

If you don’t have recipes in mind, look around for ideas. What do you like? The planet’s most common dish can be made your own when you add a dash of your own personality.

Find a few testers.

Practice really does make perfect, but don’t expect perfection right away; ask a few trusted loved ones to sample your creations. One of the greatest shared attributes of the people who love you most is their unlikelihood to judge you for being a less-than-perfect cook. Take notes on what works well and what doesn’t; make a mental file of adjustments you can make in the future.

If your family and friends rave about a recipe, why wouldn’t the rest of the world follow suit? If cooking is something you enjoy, look for ways to turn your main hobby into a new enterprise. Ask local entrepreneurs if they’d be willing to feature a few of your goods in their stores. Search your neighborhood for venues suitable for showcasing your culinary handiwork, or reserve a booth at a local festival or farmer’s market. These are wonderful chances for equal-opportunity enterprise, and they’ll get your work into the mouths of people who can generate positive word of mouth.

Have fun.

Cooking is a hobby that can bring about a positive life change at any age, but it loses all its sparkle if it brings no joy. Welcome back to your kitchen! Reintroduce yourself, and throw yourself with abandon into one of life’s most satisfying activities.
