Betcha didn't know I was gone, didcha?
In a recent post, I said I would be offline due to poor planning financially.. Well, my internet provider has not yet taken me off. That's okay because I have signed up with a previous provider who should give me better service and at a little lesser cost. I should switch over to then Monday afternoon..
i had actually cancelled my WA membership last month. Why? Several reasons:
1. Fear of Failure-- The big one. A lot of this is based on others expectations of me. People telling me that I would not amount to anything in life. After a while, started believing them.
2. Fear of Success-- A contradiction of #1? No, I don't think so. My wife and I have always struggled with money. We have bills to pay, grandkids we want to buy things for, places we want to see, friends we want to visit, oepole we want to help. All this takes money. Deep down inside, I am not a greedy person, I just want to accomplish goals.
But making lots of money should not be the goal- money should be the tool used to reach the goal.
3. Bad Habits-- By this I mean things like "stinkin thinkin," lack of self discipline, poor eating habits, etc. They can be overcome-not easily but acheiveable.
4. Feeling Overwhelmed-- When I first came aboard WA, I was amazed at everything going on. So many thing to do to achieve my goals- I soon began to feel OVERWHELMED! So I gave up (bad habit).
Why the change?
I have to look Fear in the face and tell it 'no more.'
I will no longer let Fear of Success stop me from being the kind of person I want to be.
I will change my Bad Habits by overcoming them: 'Stinkin thinkin" will become 'Positive Thinking.'
I will set a goal to put my time to better use so I can tackle all the 'goodies' at WA into a systems that helps me overcome my Overwhelmedness (new word?)
Finally, I love the sense of Community here at WA. I believe it to be one of its greatest strengths.
