The Quicksand Story

Our story through the quicksand of our own financial crisis

Life is as tough as you make it

Life is as tough as you make it and boy had we made a mess! Choosing our reaction to our tough life is a choice. For years I had read books about changing your mindset and changing your life. It wasn’t until I was in my darkest days that it all clicked. I began each day saying my mantra over and over again:

I would like to believe that I can make a million dollars.

I am open to imagining that I can make a million dollars.

I trust that I can make a million dollars.

I can make a million dollars.

I am making a million dollars.

Those five lines kept me going. I chose to react to my tough life differently. I didn’t even believe it could happen (at first) that we could have more than $50 a week for food or that we could see light at the end of our dark tunnel but I said my mantra.  Over and Over again I said it until I began to believe it.  Then one day I did believe it.  That is the day Paul came home with a raise.  It was small but it was enough, and it was a start.
