TRYING TO BE SUCCESSFULL

by TAMARA
(PENSACOLA,FLORIDA)

I AM A 36YR. OLD FEMALE WITH 2 TEENAGE CHILDREN AND AT ONE POINT IN MY LIFE I WAS AT A STAND STILL WITH MY LIFE. I WORK FULL TIME AS A CERTIFIED NURSES AIDE AND TRYING TO TAKE CARE OF TWO KIDS WHICH AT TIMES GET REAL HARD FOR ME. BUT I MANAGE. I HAVE WANTED ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS TO FURTHER MY CAREER IN THE MEDICAL FIELD BUT JUST KEPT IT OFF. SO I FINALLY DECIDED TO STOP BEING SCARED AND TAKE A CHANCE TO BETTER MYSELF FOR ME AND MY KIDS AND IF NOT FOR ME FOR MY KIDS. TO LET THEM KNOW THAT U DO NOT HAVE TO SETTLE FOR LESS YOU CAN DO WHATEVER IT IS OUT THERE AND ALSO DON'T BE AFRAID TO TAKE CHANCES IF IT MEANS TRYING TO BETTER YOURSELF. BECAUSE NOTHING OUT THERE THAT WILL BE EASY FOR YOU AND AS A SINGLE PARENT I TRY TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN WHAT I TRY TO ACHIEVE SO THAT MY CHILDREN WILL HAVE A POSITIVE ATTITUDE AS WELL AS A POSITIVE OUTLOOK ON THERE DECISION AND CAREERS AFTER THEY HAVE FINISHED SCHOOL.

Wish you all the best
by: Satish Nair

I am from India. Your story (real) is touching. I could also see ladies like you struggling with own and their children. But your case is different as you have a skill in hand (i rate this job as one of the most skillful jobs in the world.

wish you all the best that you will be able to face the challenges of life as has been done in the past not to worry about what is not getting, but try to be happy with what you have.

Love to your children, let them be helpful in the future.

Good For You!!!

Tamara:
You have taken an important first step -- you've looked your fear in the eye and have decided to act.
This will build your self confidence and it will help you create the successful life and career you want and deserve -- and it will help your kids -- seeing their mom pursue her dreams sets a great example.
I have just written a new book called "Success Tweets." Tweet 45 says, "Everyone is afraid sometime. Self confident people face their fears and act. Look your fears in the eye and do something."
You can get a free copy of Success Tweets at www.SuccessTweets.com.
All the best,
