“I’ve met many people both in person and in online forums that think they will always be stuck where they are. Why do these things always happen to me? Why can’t I get ahead with my finances? I can’t be happy because…., they lament.
I feel for them, or rather, I understand their plight, but I believe that the defeatism is the only thing that actually makes their statement true. They believe that they cannot change, and that life will always be the same and therefore they never make the choices necessary that would actually change their lives.
But life does change, sometimes we bring on the change ourselves, sometimes they happen around us.”
