After my divorce in 1993 I got involved in gambling (addicted) which affected me big time financially. Lost my job, my social life not to mention health wise (being a wheelchair user). During that time I had five attempts trying to end my life by taking O.D. of strong sleeping pills. Amazingly I survived all five times. And also I have been living with an excrutiating lower back pain since my car accident (1985) the kind of pain that I would not wish for my worse enemy. Finally after almost 4-5 years pain and suffering the last 10-11 years I was able to realize and discover the secrets to survival, happiness and success in life.
Positive thinking, learning from past mistakes but not living in the past, not thinking for what is lost and being grateful for what we have right now and not taking anything for grante. No matter how bad the situation looks right now enjoy the beauty of it and not letting my wheelchair stop me from living my life to the fullest.
I forced myself to bite the pain by my mind power and taking only over the counter regular pain killers once a day. In my mind and heart I believe that the pain does not exist any more.
I learned how to set a goal in my life for everything I desire and no matter how difficult and impossible it looked reaching those goals in my mind and heart, I believed that I could do it, and would succeed. I created my own luck, the harder you work, the luckier you get.
In the dictionary of my life, I replaced the word IF with WHEN.
Never say IF I SUCCEED always say WHEN I SUCCEED.
I always try to attract and distribute positive thoughts and energy and stay away from any kind of negetive energy or source (people) in life.
I stopped questionning GOD and yelling at HIM for my car accident, and started looking at what I had and how I could make the best of it.
Now my son is 26, has graduated from College and is working. I have stayed away from gambling for 10-11 years, have my own beautiful apartment and working and making decent money.
I have a very close and good relationship with my son.
Yes, life with all it’s bitterness is very sweet and short. Everything in life is possible as long as we have our brain, willingness and strong desire to get whatever we wish.
Now being a 54 years young man I intend to live my life to the fullest, and in the meantime try to be the best Positive Energy Source for who ever is in my life.
