Wonderful question came in today from a friend in Japan asking something very deep – something I somewhat covered in my last podcast. So, here are the questions.
Where do you get your strength from?
I lived in Australia for one year. I thought I was ostricized by society. There were days I thought I was depressed and told my housemate, “no one likes me here.”
She retorter, “you have a beautiful personality! Don’t worry about others!” Of course all I did at the time was watch the secret. There was no Les Brown, Lisa Nichols, MindValley, Tom Bilyeu, or any of these other entrepreneurs, speakers and massive business titans. I didn’t know the process in terms of bio-hacking the mind. So throughout my stint in Australia, I had to learn the hard way. I had a fair-weather friend named Thayanna who ended up disappearing mid-way through the way. There was no “best friend” from Arizona, just like there wasn’t in October of 2014 (later story) and last year. I then realized throughout everything I experienced in Australia…my mother, with a simple comment, pretty much told me that there was no quitting.
“So you’re complaining about life there? If you come back….then what? I don’t have a place for you to stay. Tina is living here. You don’t know what to do.”
Basically I can go on and on about that text message but she pretty much gave me a big “f*** you” and “there’s no room for you at the house anymore.” It was like the disownment I needed. The “build your courage now or you’re homeless” type of motivation. And from then on….I never gave up — and a seed was born within me.
