I didn't get here because somebody granted me a wish, or waved a magic wand. I got here because I made a decision.
I decided that I wanted to be a happy, fulfilled, and successful person- that I didn't want to be a resentful victim of my own life, just making it by and never getting ahead.
And then I started acting like it.
Even when I didn't feel successful, happy, or fulfilled. Even when all signs pointed to "this is never going to end." Even when I barely had enough to make ends meet.
Fast forward to today, and I actually am a happy, fulfilled, and successful person. I've unlocked a future that my family had never even considered possible before. And I don't feel like I'm a victim of whatever chaos life throws my way anymore.. I feel like I can handle it, no matter what.
Today, I run a six-figure business working three days a week- and more importantly, I'm confident & happy.
