So, as you may have read elsewhere on this blog, I have started it 3 different times over the last 5 years or so. And this is why, no matter what I wrote about, I felt I wasn’t being true to myself. I began a big career change 5 years ago after going to a seminar and hearing “How Easy” it is to make money on the internet using FOREX. Then I went to some others about internet marketing and Joint Venture Brokering, even some about flipping houses, etc. And they all say the same thing in their speeches, “How Easy It Is to Make a Fortune in blah blah blah” then they go on to gloss over how you need to take advantage of their big discount only available today on their course, buy their books, listen to their podcasts, invest in millionaire boot camps, high level “personal” mastermind groups, etc., in order to become successful. I fell for it hook, line and sinker! It wasn’t until after I had spent several years, tons of money (while I just barely scraped by until the big boatload of money came my way) that I realized a couple of things… 1.If it’s so easy, why are they bothering to teach people How-To instead of just doing it? 2. Why are they leaving all the little important bits out even when you are paying the big bucks for the “Mastermind” Training. Well, I have come to realize that there are many reasons why. Some are to sell products, others are to become “Seminar Famous” and by the way they are also paid spokespeople – no one does it for free despite what they say. I have heard just about every speech, “I don’t make a living doing these seminars.” I call “BULLSHIT” right here and now. If you hear that phrase, RUN do not Walk from the Seminar Room. Everyone gets paid in that racket, E-V-E-R-Y-B-O-D-Y!
So, I became seriously disillusioned about the whole thought of changing careers, after I had already sold everything I owned to make it happen… Because of course, it can’t happen if you hold back at all or if you cling to your old lifestyle at all… Yeah, I know, sounds like BS now but, I was all in then. I’ve tried my hand at multi level marketing… Oh Good Lord don’t get me started on that one. Real Estate, auctions, affiliate sales, Social Media, day trading, etc., etc., etc. so yeah pretty disappointing to say the least. You really get to see how people really are when they get sucked into a “Can’t Fail Opportunity.” Besides being broke and becoming desperate.
Ok, enough of that. Here’s where I parted ways with all that stuff. I became so disillusioned that I just quit. that’s it, I quit. I gave up hitting my head against a wall and giving money away to people who didn’t give a Rats Ass about me and began focusing inward. What is it that I’m doing wrong was my first question? And as you can see right off the bat, I focused on the negative. We all almost always do. Instead of asking myself, What are you doing Right? What are my positive take aways from all this? See how flipping the perspective changes the whole tone of the conversation? It was the beginning.
Since you are still here, I will assume you’re not bored to death already, pull up a chair and a cup of coffee and let’s share. I’m going to share things on this blog that will make me completely unpopular with my friends, my family, and society in general. Some of these things, I will have shared with No One before, or a select very few. And I’m happy and a little scared to do so, but, I guarantee I will be Happy When I Do. I’ll share the problems that I have encountered through my life, the consequences of how I dealt with them (or not as the case may be), the tools I finally found and still find on a regular basis to virus scan my mindset and I will share how you can use them to create a brighter future for yourself no matter where you are in life right now.
By the way, once I disinfected my head and got a perspective change, other things in life turned around too. Now, I look at things in a different light, purged negative “friends” from my life as well as a few seriously F’d up relationships, and let go of that damn anger that was festering up all the time and suddenly, there were positive people, positive vibes and positive money flow into my life.
I’ll be sharing as much of this continuing journey with y’all as I can, it most likely will be messy, heart wrenching at times and full of F-Bombs, and it will all be true.
