For years I was extremely angry and in turn unhappy. I worked diligently on self-improvement and eventually became a happier person, but my life in the material sense wasn’t going anywhere. I wanted and needed more. Yet all I saw were limitations. I couldn’t have niceties because I couldn’t afford them. I couldn’t get a full-time job with benefits because I had a lousy résumé. I couldn’t work the hours I wanted because it just didn’t work that way. I couldn’t have a good relationship because I was too independent. I couldn’t write a book because I wasn’t an “author”. The end result of my limited thinking was basically that nothing in my life changed. It wasn’t until I put an end to my negativity that I learned that I could have it all and more.
