I recently had a welcome conversation with Lesabre (Michael). He had been injured at work and was disabled so was searching for something to work for him having been limited by government and was just looking for a sensible life as he put it.
I said I understand but rather thought that it was not I that was disabled.
Michael thought about this and asked me to clarify what I meant.
This was my reply
“Hi Michael I was told that I could not work again in the U.K. system because of disability.
I believe the disability is of the people who tell you you can't work again my mind is functioning so I can work.
Stephen Hawking proved that so as established business' wouldn't employ me and use my experience to help them I'm helping myself.
It's just my thing who is really disabled?
The person who is in the "wheelchair" or the person who has closed their mind?”
This is often the case. I still according to the British government have to apply for jobs despite them sending me several letters that I don’t have to because of my disabilities.
I have had replies from recruiters claiming I’m over qualified for the position applied for and I would want more. I have had recruiters tell me they haven’t had my letter of introduction or my CV yet have had acknowledgment e mails from them claiming they have my details.
I was discouraged by these replies and many more like them. I am diabetic partially sighted partially deaf I have had quadruple heart by pass operation I have a shoulder injury. I was just looking for a small part time job that I could handle and work out my time before I got my pension. Nothing more nothing less. I was denied this because of age old problems in the workplace.
My CV is extensive with my qualifications in several topics. This made the recruiter scared I was after their job. They didn’t like older people. They saw my disabilities as too much for me to over come.
They were just plain ignorant.
So I looked and I found a market affiliate system that I found was just what I wanted. Four months later I was disappointed but determined to see what else there was. I then came upon WA.
Since joining and going Premium I have achieved more in six weeks than in four months at the other company. I got my money back from them (it was costing me a fortune) so I invested it not in WA but myself.
You see I did use the recruiters ignorance to my advantage. I looked at it this disablement of theirs and found the solution at WA. While I’m not cleaning floors or moving pencils around at a “job” I’m enjoying learning new skills enjoy getting up in the morning I have turned my disappointment into satisfaction. I am not disabled I am able I have Defined the Outcome I Desire.
I know you can too.
