It was during my ‘lean’ years, financially, that I started listening to Jim’s webinars and I enjoyed the tenets explained therein. I could find no fault with the pleasantly new age free explanations and easy-to-use tools to create a better life for yourself.
That said, I was still really bitter about the nasty decisions, some ‘females’ had made, so that I could never earn more than 16 hours which barely covered the bills and rent every month.
That changed when a student asked a question after a webinar about the absence of need for ‘spiritual’ people for something as mundane as money.
Jim’s response was unequivocal: ’Listen, there are no victims, there are only people who make choices.’
I remember that I was sitting in my room behind a plant looking out over the street. As he said it, I went into myself and somehow revisited my work history, such as it was. To me, work had always been a ‘necessary evil’. I did not really like it and created a niche world, where I strove to find work that I liked, not something I had to do much like that need to and shouldas that I had been brought up with. Enough of those, basta! In short, I was short on commitment.
But the basta did not pay the rent, so I needed to make a different choice. Somehow, I was able to strengthen my commitment by re-writing my own script and this happened in no time.
Soon after this one of the seniors saw me and I suddenly had more hours and this was not rescinded. Then, all of a sudden, there were job opportunities for ¾ jobs and I got one of them. After a few more months there was another role advertised, this time full time. I went for this and got one of these jobs and now I was full time.
I haven’t looked back since and am very grateful for what I created. The lean years also taught me to be very careful with money and I have also retained some of the strategies, I learned there.
