Help, Share, Give Back….

Good morning, as I sit here at my desk not aching too much after completing a 5.5 mile walk yesterday in aid of Dementia Care, here in the UK.  I also rode to the event which is a 4 mile round trip!

One of the things that has always appealed to me has been to be able to give back to society.  Now giving back to society does not always mean in a monetary way, you can give your time, raise money through a charity event, or raise awareness in however way you can. It can be rewarding to give back to the community who has supported you in some way shape or form.   Most people dont have the spare money or time to be able to give back to society, this is why I love network marketing because it gives you the additional income that is expendable.  I gave up my gym time for this walk, but did I miss the gym, no, instead of a workout  I did a walk, met so many peope who have had the challenge of living through and are still going through the journey of a relative with dementia, it truly was delightful to have completed this walk in my mother’s memory and for those all ar

It is more blessed to give than to receive – Acts 20.35

Dementia has a special place in my heart, because my mother suffered from ‘vascular dementia’ and sadly passed away in 2016. I know first hand what it is like to live with Dementia and how it affects those around you, including the one you love who has the illness.

Dementia affects everyone in the family, even close friends.  It is a horrible illness and there are many types of illnesses associated with Dementia which you can see below.

Mindset, Changes and Challenges

I am definitely all about sharing experiences.  It’s a way of helping others who are in a similar position to you.  We don’t know what is going on in each others lives, but by talking, it opens gateways.

Today I want to share how a shy mother of two young boys, found herself in the most daunting position in her life.  What was that you may ask? We all have ups and downs in life.  Each of us think we are all going through a unique situation, and are the only ones experiencing it.

News-Flash

You are not the only one going through changes in circumstance in your life! There are tons of self help books on every imaginable circumstance you can google……

I went from happily married mother with a lovely family to becoming a single parent with two young boys.  By the government standards my kids were in a family unit that did not stand a chance to progress in life, and even more so they were boys!!

My marriage broke down due to infidelity, and with that came mistrust.  Nothing new here. But to me it was my world crashing around me.

So, being my proud independent self, I didn’t want to be seen as a failure, even though I really felt like one, with a failed marriage behind me.  I won’t tell you here about what it did for my self esteem, that is another blog post!  My logical head kicked in, and I had to find a way to replace the salary that just walked out of the door.

So I had to find something that I could do while still doing a full time job…. I wanted to be around my kids, they needed me more now than ever being a single parent.

So I researched companies and things I could do online to work from home in the evenings when the kids were in bed.  That was the start of my Network Marketing Journey!!!

That was over 12  years ago now.  Working in the Network Marketing Industry has helped me to develop myself personally, I have had so many great mentors and teachers along the way such as the late great Jim Rohn, John C Maxwell (met them both in person), Tony Robbins, Eric Worre, Diane Hochman, Ray Higdon, Jordan Schultz, Abdul Waheed and many more.   This is a world I would never have entered if it were not for my circumstances of a failed marriage back then.  So I guess I should thank my lucky stars that things happened they way they did.

Often we do not realise that we are being held back from our path of greatness, life gets in the way and distracts us as to the reason that we are here.  Circumstance or fate whatever you wish to call it, brings you towards your path of greatness sometimes through tragedy, sometimes through ways which do not seem favourable at the time.

Destiny-QuoteI truly believe this.  Karma, the Universe, Law of Attraction, God, The Higher Being, what ever you refer to, you will be guided towards your greatness, but you have to learn how to listen, learn how to be guided, it is called your intuition.  Some of us are more intuned to this than others.  I will go through how you can improve your intuition through meditation in another blog post.

So, in closing my experience of developing one’s self, through reading recommended books such as

Jim Rohn – The Twelve Pillars

George Classon – The Richest Man in Babylon

Lynn Grabhorn – Excuse me Your Life is Waiting

Oprah Winfrey – What I know For Sure

More suggestions will be coming through in further blog posts, but these are the ones that helped improve my confidence, and set me on the path to where I am now!
