Hi Accented Family
I thought about it and came to the conclusion that if everyone had a specific goal in mind as crazy and outrageous as they might think it is even though they are in a job that is not satisfying, we would be way more upbeat and optimistic, because the tunnel vision outlook would surely provide for the optimism.
I remember working a 7-5 job. I had no vision or life goal at that time. It made me so anxious to go to work everyday, I would literally get told after trial basis in most jobs, that I was not “needed” for the job anymore.
I never had a job for more than 5 months at a time since the age of 21 years.
I literally only had one job where I worked 6 years for longest time.
Luckily I had started to develop a long term goal within my last job of 6 years where I was a little more optimistic even though the job made me feel more anxious as time passed. I had then written out my future goals which was great.
Then it happened. Homelessness and joblessness struck. I was even riddled with adderall at the time, a drug for Attention deficit disorder which is what I have. I experienced panic attacks on a daily basis while sitting in my car having to work out where I was going to get my next meal.
Optimism was very much still there, because I knew I would come out of this slump if I consistently keep to my routine, schedules and life goal. I finally got rid of the adderall and focused on life with everything I had within me.
I have to add that being in the U.S, I find it much easier to get out of a slump then in my home country, South Africa.
Here in the U.S I feel like I can do anything I set my mind to, because it’s just a matter of consistently
working on your goal. No, I’m not delusional, just very realistic.
My online mentor, Stuart Ross in this six figure mentor community I belong to, has truly inspired me…..bare in mind I’m already inspired and motivated from what I’ve already achieved.
Stuart has elevated my sense of will to keep moving forward to greater heights and I couldn’t be more inspired and focussed.
Life takes you places that you carve for yourself. If you think having a 9-5 job is a secure position in life, guess what, you will get results of a 9-5 worker.
If you think you’ve survived simply because you completed another week at work, you’ll feel a bit drained just because you thought “phew, I survived!”
I refuse to think this way. Instead, I think…”In 6 months I will have a certain amount of money along with the strategies I’ll implement to get it. Then in a year I’ll have “X” amount of money. Then in 3 years I’ll have “X” amount of money…..then eventually in 5 years time I’m going to be a millionaire”

I’m exited because why would I give up now when life is present me with so many possibilities?
