I am playing “She loves me, she loves me not” – only this time it is, “I have a deep-seated problem that prevents me from making more money, I do not have a deep-seated problem …”
I reckon I’ve identified another problem: I want to avoid it as far as possible to make significant appearances. This affects my private English tutoring possibilities, and it affects business opportunities where people would expect to be able to contact me and ask about things.
“Leave me alone!” may just cost me my financial independence.

For me it has always been, and still is to some extent, a very unnatural thing to try to make money.
However, there are many activities that do feel natural to me, that seem to be a better fit for my personality, my personal style, and my self-perception.
This leads to a simple and obvious conclusion: I need to learn to make these activities profitable.

There are good people to be found everywhere who do not know you but who are willing to help you; also, good people who, without them or you being aware of it, need your help.
There are also people who would be interested in what you have to say, if what you have to say actually ever reached their eyes or ears.
That you sometimes need to take a few steps outside your comfort zone suddenly doesn’t sound like such a bad idea.

I am 38 years old. Despite making some serious mistakes, I have clearly managed to get a few basic things right.
