Your words, your life

Your life is what you say it is!

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.

Hello Yayra,
It can be tough to look deeply at something being offered and to know it is not possible morally. This is good advice. I looked up the "laws of integrity", glad they are available. It is true that we live with our own decisions. All the best with your plans, may they flourish.

Hello Yayra,
Welcome to WP, we are glad you are here and I like your story. You speak my language and just "being what you say" has so much power in it. I beleive that if every human being practiced just this one thing then we could live heaven on earth because transparency and honoring our words are so important. Thanks for sharing.
