Hello again Ladies!
I know it has been a few days since I posted anything.
So today I wanted to talk about how changing your mindset, can change your life.
As I shared before, I became a mother at the young age of 19. I was faced with this life changing experience, but I still had my mind set on success.
Being a young mother was very difficult. I did not have a lot of family support, and I had to pretty much make it on my own. Also, since I didn’t finish my first year of college before getting prego, I did not have a college degree.
As some of you may know, getting a good paying job without a degree is pretty tough. So anyway, after my son turned 6 weeks old, I found a job through an agency that paid me a decent amount and I was able to survive and take care of my child.
As the next few months went by, I felt in my spirit that I was worth more, and that even though I had a child and didn’t go to college right after high school, I could accomplish so much more. I knew I was not defined by my circumstance.
So I began looking at different trade schools (although personally I no longer endorse trade schools-I’ll post something about that at another time) and found the courage to enroll in the online school. I actually enrolled on my son’s 1st birthday:)
So for the next 2 years, I balanced being a mother, working full time and completing my online school work. Yay! Summer of 2011 I graduated (I was so excited to walk across that stage with my cap and gown and with all the other graduates.)
I believe if I would have taken the defeated mindset, I would not be where I am now. I now work at a very well established Health Care Provider with well known recognition.
If you are at a place in your life where you feel that you are stagnant or that your dreams will not come true, I encourage you to change your mindset. Our minds are very powerful, and once we change our minds, we change our actions, once we change our actions, we change our lives.
