I was dedicated to poverty because it was easier to give up than it was to fight. For years I struggled to pay my bills, keep food in the house, even gas in my car sometimes was an obstacle of its own. There was plenty of times all I had to put in my tank was $1. and some change. But don’t feel bad for me it was my choice I lived that way; I was dedicated to poverty because it was easier to give up.
I used to believe the world was against me and everything that happened to me was some else’s fault. I went to college got a Bachelor Degree but here I was still struggling. Why was that? It is because I was dedicated to poverty that’s why!
So many times I tried to find a good job but when I got told I was over-qualified or had no experience I would just give up and cry about it. Then a couple of months would go by and I would send out some more resumes only to be rejected again and cry some more. After all, it was so much easier to just give up, right?
Then one day I just knew everything was going to change. I got my insurance license and contracted with a great company. I knew things were about to change. I was so excited there were nights I stayed up dreaming about the life I wanted and the life I was going to live.
Unfortunately, it didn’t happen that way. Nope. Turns out people don’t flock to you when you sell insurance. In fact, they run away and fast! Here I thought it was going to be easy peasy. I had heard all those success stories and if they could do it so could I. Truth be told I could have done it if I really wanted to.
I would call a few prospects set a couple of appointments for the following week and be done. When I didn’t make any sales because 2 of my 3 appointments canceled I would just blame the world and give up because I was dedicated to poverty. I wanted more I really did I just didn’t want to put the work in, it was way easier to give up and cry about it.
That is until I lost everything and made the decision that enough was enough! I was tired of being dedicated to poverty and it was no longer going to control me. Turns out I had the answer to success all along I was just too dedicated to poverty to see it.
Turns out I was dedicated to poverty because I chose to give up when obstacles came my way. Looking back at where I was and where I am today I wouldn’t change a thing. I know how crazy that sounds but I wouldn’t be who I am today if it wasn’t for what I went through.
I have become an extraordinary person, child of God, mother, wife, and trainer. I have learned so much along the way. I learned my true passion and just how much I really do love helping others (I’m an introvert like 3 x’s in) and how I want to and feel led to do big things; things bigger than me!
How I Stopped My Dedication To Poverty
Once I made the decision things had to change I got a job, yes it was minimum wage but it was an income. I saved money up and bought a $700 car to get me back and forth to work. I then got very clear on what I wanted and where I wanted to go. I wrote down my goal and then I broke it down into steps.
After that, I took 3 – 5 steps every day that would help me get closer to that goal. Things like sharing my blog post so many times or reading a new book etc. I made sure to show gratitude every single day for my car, job, and anything else I could think of. Things just fell into place after that.
Yes, I still faced obstacles and I still do. The difference now is how I face them and respond to them. I actually learned how to do this through Jack Canfield’s book The Success Principles. Next, to the Bible, this book changed my life. I found my purpose, my passion, and myself through this book.
The book has helped me so much that I am now teaching the principles to others just like you. Helping you to implement them and stay on track.
If you find yourself dedicated to poverty and you want to change it I can help. I am not by any means saying it will be easy because it won’t. It will, however, be easier if you have someone holding you accountable. You just have to make the decision to change your story.
