Silent Screams of Molten Stress
Well, last week was really crummy. I call last week the “silent screams of molten stress” because if I don’t have anything nice to say I just don’t say anything. I’d have to say the odds of having a week that bad was one in a thousand though. I don’t want you to think I’m whining because I’m not. I just had a totally messed up work week. By day, I work in the service industry and I had two customers that are the 1 out of 100 type (super picky and ultra high maintenance). On top of that, I messed up an order on a different job and now I’m looking at a pretty big bill along with the two demanding customers. Now, if I was whining, I’d go on about all the crummy stuff that happened and wallow in misery for a few days, but oh well, I guess I’ll just save the pity party for another day.
I’m the type of person who likes to look forward. I like to face my mistakes and get through them so I can move on. So what if I’m out a few bucks and as for the customers go, I’ll just have to please them to death (no biggie). My only hang up this week is that it all happened at once, so my main challenge is absorbing it all and learning from the experience. At this point I’m not about to quit my main source of income but I was thinking about quitting my mlm and dropping “the second shift”. I don’t think I can do that though. I think about quitting sometimes but if I did that I’d have to go back to being a job zombie. See, I don’t like to quit things and right now I can’t seem to stop building my business anyway. I finally found the confidence to talk to people openly about my mlm and I don’t feel the need to chase after them to get them to sign up.
At this point I think it would be more painful to put all my dreams back on the shelf again rather than put in the extra hours to make them flourish. Now that the path to wealth and prosperity is laid out in front of me I don’t think I’ll ever be able to forgive myself for not taking it (no matter what obstacles are on it). Whenever things start getting a little rough I always go back and listen to my favorite speaker, Jim Rohn. One of the quotes I think of is something he told people when he first started his business. He said, “I’m working full time on my job, but I’m working part time on my fortune, but soon I’ll be working full time on my fortune, then I won’t be going to work to pay the rent but I’ll be going to work to build a fortune! Can you imagine what life is going to be like?” Quotes like that make giving up unthinkable and they keep me looking to a better day. My week of silent screams of molten stress is behind me now and I just want to focus on making a better future.
