Advance is a powerful Self Confidence Antidote

When you advance,you change for the better and for the worst within and around you.On commencing the journey take time to place a value on yourself.Be competent and learn how to win friends and influence people.Be friendly and very vigilant.Be quick and swift to handle complains avoid arguments,keep your human relations smooth and pleasant even in adversity.Don't complain but learn to understand people because they are part and parcel of your advancement.Learn to appreciate everyone on their contribution that is propelling you forward.

I had a  house help her name is Rita.She was a lovely jovial young woman.By the time she came to my house i had had ulcers for 8 years.I had used a great amount of  resources trying to get medication which did not work.One day as i was in deep thoughts,in pain and i lay lifeless on my bed.She came over and sat by my bedside.For about an hour without saying a word.She rose up and requested me to sit up.She told me kindly bear with me i can not hold this anymore.You are dying and if only you can take what i am just about to prescribe you will be free from this. First am moved by your pain but i would be precise to say in case you have grudges with anybody start to release them now.Forgive,forget let God handle the rest.Secondly i recommend you chew raw garlic for atleast 3 months before and after meals avoid taking cold foods always drink warm water on getting the acidity reaction and avoid acidic foods.I looked at Rita and i said thank you, some warm water please.When she left i was like Rita the Ulcers doctor,lets see.Having been a house help i knew the said reaction.The truth was i was a bitter woman and bitterness was killing me.I took her instructions seriously henceforth and i attended to them,after 3 months of another level of forgiving myself and others i was free until today it was seasoned with praying without seizing.

To advance you will need human resource .Always remember communication is the backbone  of every relationship therefore work on your language as it will be a vital tool at this stage.Be a good listener and encourage others  to tell you more about themselves.Respect other peoples opinions even if they do not count.Always admit when you are wrong.Iron sharpeneth iron;so a man sharpeneth the counternance of his friend,Proverbs 27:17 .I celebrate you for being part of my advancement.

Hi Bettina,

You're on fire, dear:-) Thanks for sharing your inspiring post. I'm impressed that you listened to Rita, and that you healed from listening to her advice. I'm not sure how many people would, but I agree about being a good listener and encouraging others. You never know what you might learn, grow and heal from:-)

Oh, I see. That sounds interesting...

Hello, Betina,

Ritas seems like a loving woman. I’ve read about releasing forgiveness can bring healing to the body.

Thanks for sharing your story!
