She came to see me and she said "I am not happy.'
I asked her 'what do you need to be happy?'
She said "I need to win the Lottery!'
'What would you do with the money if you won the Lottery?' I wondered aloud.
'I would go on a cruise.' she said.
'Ok' I said 'I have never been on a cruise. What does it cost?'
'I don't know' she said 'Probably, well more than I can afford.'
'Your homework for next week is to go and find out how much a cruise would cost. Will you do that?'
Fast forward to the following week, one very excited woman arrived early and said 'I've done it! I've done it! I have booked a cruise for 8 months time. I can pay it off at 30 euros a week.
I never knew that someone like me could afford to go on a cruise.
I thought only really wealthy people could do that!
I can have my dream!
I can sip cocktails on a cruise on the Nile.'
Dear reader, I wonder are you carrying beliefs like this, beliefs that 'an ordinary person like me can't...........'
