April 21st 2009
Today I received the books which could have not come at a worse time. My mother is flying in from Minnestota to visit till Monday. So I will have to hold off on reading.
April 23rd. I got a call from Vonda asking questions about the Academy. I was a little confused since I had not opened the book or watched the DVD. I stayed on the line with here even though my wife and mother were here. She was talking about how I was interviewing for the academy to be personally trainred on how to become a REI. She said that I would be a good candidate and that she would like to set up a second interview. We the next interview was going to be April 30th at 7pm.
Monday April 27th. Got Fired today. Wow. I knew things were not going well. The V.P came in and said that things just were not working out and that it was best if we part ways.
I did hate this job. Hated it with a passion. Dreading getting up every morning, putting on a suit and a smile, pretending that I was enjoying what I was doing. That’s not right.
Trying to sell something your heart is not in is really tough. Trying to sell an inferior product that I felt was to old and over priced for the rent. Mt. Pleasant, SC is a nice area but outrageous rents for buildings that were 30 years old and the inside showed their age.
Tuesday April 28th. I finally opened the book. Read to page 59.
Asking myself and contemplating what do I do now?
So many thoughts running through my head.
What did I do?
What is my wife thinking?
At least we have money in the bank right now to cover our loss.
Where do I go from here?
I hate working for someone else.
The most thought that has been running through my head is that for the last 10 years of my life that I have been a good employee. I was fortunate to gain a great work ethic from my parents.
I have worked in a grocery store, Warehouse, food production, realtor, property manager are just among a few of the jobs that I have held.
All of these jobs have taught me different things and I am glad for the knowledge that I have learned,.
But of all of these they never made enough to make me enough money to fully support myself. Through the years and many jobs I knew that I was going insane. Taking on a job and expecting different results.
I always thought that there had to be a better way. No man should have to give up his life just to be beyond broke. JOB. I always was thinking outside of the box. Always knowing that the only way to be wealthy that I would have to work for myself. Only working for myself would I gain the freedom and the money that I need.
I am not asking to be rich, just a millionaire. I am tired of driving a car that looks like it belongs on the back of a flat bed truck on its way to the junk yard. I am tired of not being able to go buy cloths. It has been almost 2 years since I have not felt guilty when I spend money to cloth myself. I am tired of living paycheck to paycheck.
I want to have children but I am not able to because we cannot afford to. Although this should not stop my wife and me from starting a family, I would feel guilty trying to raise a child with the little extra money we have and put the extra stress on our marriage.
I guess that is my why. I have said many times that I will start now. I need to start now. I need to find that different way to produce a wealth of income. But every time I have begun and tried, it produced little results. I was expecting great wealth immediately and when that did not happen, I gave up. I wanted to succeed but did not.
This time I cannot fail. If I fail this time I not only fail me, but my wife and my future.
My quote is to long to put here. If you want to read it you have to read chapter 2 of "Think & Grow Rich"
Follow My Path......
