I am a strong believer that you can change your life by creating positive thoughts. Hence the reason why I started this website to help others achieve their dreams and think positive thoughts.
Was I always this way? No. My story starts about 20 years ago (give or take a year). I had just finished up my 8 weeks of maternity leave and was heading back to work. Prior to having my daughter, Jackie, I always thought that I wanted to be a “career mom”. That all changed when she came into my life.
At the time, I was working 9 to 5 at a local technology company handling customer orders and marketing. It was a nice enough company but wasn’t very flexible if you were late to work. Now, I never had any issues being late to work but now with a newborn; I worried about us both getting out of the door on time. As a matter of fact, I was stressed out about it. Plus the guilt I felt for leaving her.
So I approached my husband about working part-time so I could spend more time with Jackie. He said, “Sure, as long as you can make the same amount of money”.
I think back now and, at the time, I had one goal on my mind, how to work part-time, make the same amount of money and spend time with Jackie. Failure was not an option or a “blip” on my radar. I was going to do it.
Sure enough, less than two months later, I gave my notice. Which started me on my path to selling products over the phone for a .com company during the late 90s. I was working 32 hours a week and had increased my pay by 20%. That was only the tip of the iceberg. The next year, I double my income and the year after that ended up tripling my income.
All because I believed in creating positive thoughts to change my life to live the way I wanted it. Every morning before I started my day, I would focus my thoughts on what I needed to do to create the job and life I wanted. I also kept a notebook dedicated to this process. Hence, the reason for starting this website . . . to help other folks achieve their dreams and think positive thoughts.
If you’ve had similar experiences that have changed your life for the better, I’d love to hear from you!
