I used to concern myself with letting others down. I’m still human and although I will swear to you that you that you should live up to your own expectations and not others, I still have moments of sadness because I think I let someone down. But the I get over it!
Don’t ever confuse my tears with weakness. I have been through hell and back, I have had regrets, and I have made mistakes. I have literally crawled out of the muddy ditches to get where I am today, and I am not ashamed. Everybody has a story, and everyone has a reason for the decisions they make. I take ownership in my mistaken decisions and a pride my productive decisions.
I want to help you, but you MUST be willing to put in the work. If you want my help then you will start by reading this and requesting a questionnaire. You have to understand that changing your life means completely retraining your brain. Growing up I actually thought once everyone turned 18 they received food stamps. I was raised to believe it was my governmental right, and getting the assistance was a job all it’s own. I was not encouraged to go to college, in fact my mom happily signed me out of high school and signed me over to my husband at the age of 17.
The point is this, if I wanted anything to happen for me, I was going to have to suck it up and do it myself! I will provide resources, and I will happily guide you. But it will be your job to seek me out. I will check on you periodically, but your destiny is yours to build. I can save you some years of frustration by giving you advice many people won’t. Why? Because rather than “guide” you, they want you to fall as many times as it takes to figure it out on your own. My philosophy is a little different.
I will never “give” you anything. I do have requirements. First and foremost if you have a criminal background, you will be required to clean it up. Excuses are like assholes, everyone’s got them and they all stink. If you want you’re life to change then you must stop blaming others for your problems. Once you have done that, you will be ready to correct your legal past.
You will be required to get your GED if you don’t have one. You will do the study work, and you WILL get it. Let’s face it, if you got this far into this article, then you are already more serious than most. While we are working on all these things, I will require you to seek counseling. There are no if’s, and’s, or but’s about it. I’ve heard every reason in the world why people won’t go, and those people have yet to see the difference in their lives they so desperately crave. If you are here, it’s because your past is jaded. Their is a darkness in your life, and in all likeliness you probably suffer from a little PTSD with everything you’ve been through. I am not a doctor, and I can only guide you in the right direction. In order for you to be able to take the steps necessary, you have to seek professional help for your emotional blocks.
Last, you will sign a contract agreeing to these things. Everyone makes mistakes, but my time is short and precious. If you can’t commit, then I don’t have time to play with you. Only those who are TRULY serious about making a change in their life and seeking out their potential should contact me after reading this. I encourage you to really question if you are ready, because you only get one shot at making a mistake. After that, I will no longer be available for you. Life is short, and we must make the most of it. If I don’t feel like you’re serious, then I will quickly move on.
I want to know you. Don’t be afraid to be honest with me. I’m not here to judge you, but I am a tough love type of person. Most likely if you’ve gotten to this point, you are not a sensitive person anyway. People may describe you as hard headed, strong willed, and emotional. I am all of these things, but I have gotten them in check. I don’t let others short comings towards me effect my ability to move forward, and neither should you.
The hope, is to make your strong minded resistance work FOR you. Turn a negative into a positive and get your life in a place of opportunities you created for yourself! Always remember, the only person you can control is you. What others think of you is irrelevant, and YOU are your biggest competition. Always aspire to be better than you were yesterday, and don’t let anything else take your focus off of YOUR prize.
If you still want my help, hit me up for the questionnaire. Based on my time and ability to offer assistance, I will let you know what I can do or if I can do anything. I am limited to how many people I can take on at a time. But my hope, is that I will make this grow! And together, we will create an entirely new wealth of opportunity for one another!
