It All Begins With A Positive Attitude

Don't think a negative thought that will make you feel bad about yourself.Think positive and be focused on a singular goal, finding employment and preparing yourself for employment.Not your past,not the bill you cannot pay or the lack of help you are currently unable to give yourself or your family or both right now.Remember the old saying," time will take care of things" and tell it to yourself repeatedly when the negative thoughts creep up on you and try to take over your mind, and make you neglect your body.Listen to motivational speakers on books and videos.Hang in there even when the going get's tough,because it will.You survived life behind bars because you are made of strong stuff,so do not give up now or never.
