I am now Betting On Myself! Did I do that all my life?
No, I did not. I had my excuses for my “Loser” way of thinking. I did not realize there is another way. It uses to hurt when I heard of other people's success and for that reason I was born into poverty ways of thinking.
I “knew” that I will never have that success I so desire. You see, I did not wish for success; I desired it. Even so my “logic” told me I couldn’t have it.
I insisted that I will!
I had no idea how to do it until May 1999 when I read my First positive non novel book “Conversations With God” by Neale Donald Walshe.
I took it to my hand as I had nothing else to do at the shop I was working in and the guy I worked with was a very bad influence on my peace of mind... so I found a way to ignore him by reading a book I had no idea will change my life.
For some reason this book began a process of me choosing the people I invited into my life; I started to associate only with those who have a positive way of thinking and still have some “wild” dreams to achieve. But, ... I didn’t send away those who had a hold of my weak side to tell me I can’t do or achieve my dreams, I kept those "know it all" around me like I had no idea that I do have the right to send them away.
It was a beginning of a process for me. Slowly by the years I did more for me. I had those around me to tell me I am wasting my time. many who said I’ll never be anything as I haven’t become till now, I’m too old to start. Only I had enough of poverty, enough of being nobody, enough of seeing good life only next door.
I had no one to guide me, how and what to do. I only had one friend who had a coffee shop, next to the shop I worked in. We use to have long talks about the ways we can achieve our goals, only he in my mind already had it, he owned the coffee shop so for me he was rich.
Now I know much better.
When I joined Mentoring For Free as a new girl on the block, I thought to myself, “are those people for real?" Well, you know what I think now, as I am one of you my friends, Yes we are for real! I “lost” many so-called “friends”, during the past two years... but I gained real Friends.
I am betting on myself as I am working my way to my future.
I have learned,
"There is No Place Like the Place that Makes You Feel as Important as You Are!!!"
"Accept Nothing Less Than The Very Best!"
