After reading Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad: What The Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! I decided to quit my government job so I can start making money in the stock market.
It was the dumbest idea I had because I should have already been making money in the market already, before even thinking of letting go of my “secure” job.
At the least making the income from it that exceeded my expenses.
Now that is a good reason to consider dropping the 9 to 5.
So as you might have guessed, the project was a flob.
Leading to me losing my job, leading me asking my mother for lunch money when she went to work in the morning, since I was living with her at the time.
Losing my car, which was still financed by the bank.
Losing my self esteem and confidence.
And I kept saying that I’m ok…but I wasn’t.
I was depressed but I told myself I wasn’t.
With me not eating and if I did eat I wasn’t eating right.
Spending most my time in my room, playstation all day.
I’m not saying Robert Kiyosaki was the cause of my depression, see Rich Dad’s Before You Quit Your Job: 10 Real-Life Lessons Every Entrepreneur Should Know About Building a Multimillion-Dollar Business.
I was in the dumps but I didn’t want to admit that I was.
Something that happens to other people and not me, kinda thing.
Sometimes you are too proud to tell the truth about yourself.
Sometimes an intervention can pull you up and out, so you can try again…better.
Sold my playstation.
Brushed up my CV.
Went out again applying for jobs and getting interviews so to go back in the rat race again, and doing it right this time around.
To try again.
To fail my way to success.
But what I’m trying to put across is that doing something, the mere act of taking action, helped.
Taking action helps.
Just doing…something…anything that will keep your body moving helps.
But I think your faith is the ultimate defining factor.
I like how Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson puts in this 2:36 min video on Facebook.
Even Dr. Norman Vincent Peale said it is his book The Power of Positive Thinking, “Feeling listless, write a list.”
So if you are feeling dead inside then get into motion.
Motion creates emotion. – Anthony Robbins
Please forgive me.
I love you.
