Having no confidence and seeing no way out

I know how it feels to have no confidence and being unable to see a way out. 

I have been there myself. I hit rock bottom when I had the flu, all the children had chicken pox.  We were all sitting huddled and miserable in the living room, feeling sorry for ourselves.  It was cold, and I had just one 50p coin left for the meter.  I thought to myself that I have to do something, and do it very soon, or none of us will survive.  Life looked so bleak, I didn’t have a job, I didn’t have any prospects, I was struggling as a single mum with three small children, there didn’t seem to be anything I could do. 

Dealing with emotional abuse

My mind was focused on what I couldn’t do, or what I perceived I couldn’t do.  This was a step in the right direction, recognising that I was focusing on the wrong things. 

I made a decision there and then to change just one thought.  I changed the thought of not being able to get a job to that of being able to get a job.  

I called my parents on the phone and they brought me a few more coins for the meter.  We all recovered from our illnesses and the very next week I went out whilst the children were at school and got a job.  I got the job of kitchen assistant at the school my children attended.  I cooked and served the school dinners, washed up and started to rebuild my confidence.

Getting a job meant I had money, having money meant being able to feed and clothe the children.  This of course was a huge boost to my confidence.

I have some availability for coaching clients, we just need to fix some dates if and when you want to get started. Get in touch today.
