I was in a leadership training webinar sponsored by Klein Frank Foundation and led by Phil Cisneros and one message that stood out to me was just "being what you say". That to me means what I say becomes who I am or who I have to live up to. I've always known what we say holds a lot of power but this totally took it to another level for me and I think sharing this message might make an impact in someone else's life.
I went into that webinar open-minded and was hoping to learn something really great. The pandemic has affected my work greatly and is leaving me very broke. I decided I had to do some side hustles as it's what I always turn to when I need some extra cash but you still need capital to start the side hustle right? I was blaming myself for letting it get this far before thinking of what to do next. I know that worrying will solve no problems and will not bring food to my table but I couldn't help it. A friend I really shouldn't be keeping brought me a business idea that can make me some fast money but when it makes fast money, you know it's not morally good right? I couldn't get myself to do it because it stands against everything I stand for and honestly, all I could say to myself was... "you did not do this when you needed your fees paid, why do this now?" but at the same time, I know how it feels to have absolutely nothing and it's not a good feeling at all, I was truly on the fence with this. This webinar just brought some light into my life and it came at the exact time I needed it. I decided to apply to the world literacy foundation (WLF) as an ambassador so I can help educate others like myself who are finding it difficult to continue their education because of financial reason, wish me luck! I am seeking loans from friends to help start a hair business and I sent a message to my friend to read on the laws of integrity (she wasn't happy with that and thought I was insulting her). I think she blocked my number but it really doesn't bother me. So...
If you're going through anything close to what I went through, may I suggest you read on the "laws of integrity", it'll help you get yourself back on track, strengthen your principles and teach you to always live up to what you say.
Thanks Beth Klein, Phil Cisneros, and World Pulse for changing lives.
