I'm thinking of going beyond money and passive income (GASP)

...I know, I know.

It seems like it counteracts and counter-productive compared to all that I've been saying all these years. 

Please note that I AM STILL investing into dividend stocks, online businesses, "passive-fying" my offline businesses etc...this is just something that I'm mulling over and thinking about.

Fret not, I will still be writing on passive income, how I do it and which I think is the best ways to create streams and streams of passive income.

After all, it is one of my favorite experiences in the world other than

  • experiencing the love of Christ
  • experiencing the love of my wife
  • experiencing the love of my children
  • experiencing the love and warm of relatives, friends, colleagues
  • experiencing the joy when a hypothesis works / curiosity scratched

(if you have not yet gotten your 1st dollar of passive income, gosh, I need to create a special all in article how to create your 1st stream of passive income). 

this nagging feeling...

...the more I pursue passive income, the more it seems to slow down my passive income streams and eludes me, and it seems to make me unhappy. You know, like the person who wants to make $1M at all costs but when he or she goes through the process, they are unhappy?

Or worse, is when they realized they're unhappy or it's meaningless when they finally achieved (this is the worst - to give up years of energy, love and sacrifice to get something that one doesn't care about after all).

This is probably the same reason why I left one of my physiotherapy start ups that was sold to a larger healthcare group, who offered me good amount to stay, but I wasn't keen nor interested to - staying would be so much more financially good to me (cos my income have dropped more than 90%) BUT my happiness and contentment have skyrocketed 10X at least.

And THAT'S the sort of thing that stands out and cries out to me.

Maybe I'm a fool. 

Maybe in 10 years time I'll look back and say to myself, "maybe I should have stayed".

NAH, fuck that. I'm 10X happier today and almost immediately upon leaving, so I can extrapolate that in 10 years, I'll be at least 100X happier LOL. 

it's weird

It's really weird.

I don't know, maybe this is my 35-year-old crisis (I'm actually 37 years old in 2019), when I opted to leave and take a sabbatical to spend time meditating, pursuing other matters like

  • spending time with my kids
  • reading
  • praying and meditating
  • pursuing publishing course
  • and more

I've had a few crises throughout my life, those that I can recall being:

  • 25 years old when I left my 1st hospital job when I was bonded and I hated it. Went on to create a company with $65 and sold it for 7-figures in 2014.
  • Seeing my parents argue about money (or whatnot) for earlier parts of my childhood and helping them to talk it through. Went on to become an entrepreneur and negotiator/mediator later in life.

I'm pretty sure that me opting to leave that company, despite it being painful, tiresome and irritating process, will lead me to someplace better and more interesting.

I'm also very happy that the persons whom my wife originally partnered with, all left - seeing and hearing what she told me...it's much easier and happier today. 10X too.

Maybe as I'm getting older, combined with the shit that we've been through, and my meditations, thinkings, reflections, readings, have together start to mould and grow me to the next phase of my life.

recurring passive income and compound interest is always a joy

This is going to be a fundamental truth.

Like these:

  • experiencing the love of Christ
  • experiencing the love of my wife
  • experiencing the love of my children
  • experiencing the love and warm of relatives, friends, colleagues
  • experiencing the joy when a hypothesis works / curiosity scratched

I love fucking and blowjobs too, but am at 37, so that may change when I'm 67, so I'll just try to focus on more time-classic stuff, though I may write on sexual wellness and fucking too.

That being said, my love for recurring passive income and compound interest will always bring a skip in my heart and joy to me, and I always remember fondly my first dollars (which later grew to thousands of dollars) of passive income.

I will have a segment dedicated to how I generate passive income, but I want NigelChua.com to be more encompassing.

so i'm gonna focus on love. growth. curiousity. and publish.

Stuff that makes me smile.

Stuff that makes me grow.

Stuff that is win-win, not at the expense of others.

Stuff like courage, truth, hope, faith, love, happiness, productivity and whatnot. 

Stuff that makes the world actually better. I want to leave this world a better place with me in it. 

Stuff like that.

I know, it may seem like a hard thing, but I'll still remain "soft" like this, because I don't like the "hardness" of the world.

Yeah, that kind.

And I pray that what I do, as you read and follow what I do, that it'd inspire you to build and live your best life, starting today. As soon as you can, and not defer happiness, meaning and love.

I will also be publishing on Kindle, possibly starting with short short books to realize and achieve my dream of being a publisher and living off my writings and publishings.

“For what profits a man if he gains the whole world but loses his own soul

Matthew 16:26

Today, I start anew.

I walk away from old chains, the people and relationships and memories of those

  • who conveniently lied, scammed and defrauded me to get what they want
  • who sought to hurt me and my loved ones
  • who brings about discord, negativity, pain 

...I forgive you, but fuck off LOL. I forgive but I don't have to deal or live with you eh =)

Oh, writing like this is nice. It's cathartic, and enjoyable, and maybe this is what "being me" feels like haha. 

thinking how to segment / map out nigelchua.com

Mapping out and planning out NigelChua.com is kinda hard.

Maybe cos I tend to think, feel and intuitively lead from a very high and broad perspective and standpoint. Blogging day to day is ok, but there needs to be a general structure so that readers can find what they want.

Maybe cos I want to do an end-to-end thingie haha, this is so me. 

But oh well, this is my website, so I'll do it how I like and envision it to be.

I dont think I'll move to WordPress, as I really like Solo Build It - too much pros as opposed to cons with WordPress, and so much easier tech-wise. And it's not as pretty, and that's fine with me. I like it and that's it. 

If you want to start a WordPress site, you can consider Wealthy Affiliate (you can sign up for free here for life - one of their strongest points) - they're the "WordPress-brother" to Solo Build It, and they do exactly similar to what SBI does, but in WordPress form.
