      Why do bad things happen to good people? Where is
      your FOCUS?
      by Leon & Tammy (Think Only Success) Gregory | on December 13, 2012


      My focus yesterday was with our son.  I was talking to him about his bank account.  He 
      realized that the night before he used his debit card for groceries and forgot to call me to
      transfer money into his account.  He ended up being overdrawn and being charged over 
      $50.00 because of it.  It was about a $20 charge but two other charges that were less than 
      ten dollars also went thru so he received three overdraft fees.  As anyone would be, he was 
      quite upset.  He’s living on such a tight budget to begin with and he just threw away a lot of
      money.  The overdraft fees were more than a week’s worth of food.  In his exasperation he 
      asked me if he was a bad person.  Did he do something to deserve this?  He works hard and 
      tries to do the right thing, why did this have to happen to him?  Clearly, he had made a choice 
      to buy something he didn’t have the money for.  Instead of transferring money into his 
      account before the purchase he waited and then it was too late to call me.  Bottom line:  he 
      made a choice.  We all make choices that don’t work out and have to live with them.

      What about when things happen that you have no choice in?  What about natural disasters 
      like hurricanes and floods?  We’ve all seen what Hurricane Sandy did to the east coast.  
      Many people’s homes and businesses were destroyed.  Certainly, they didn’t have a choice
      in the matter other than to choose to live in that area.  Someone once said to me that maybe 
      these types of things occur to give the rest of humanity a chance to respond and care for
      others.  Just think about it, if there were no bad things happening no one would have the 
      opportunity to help another person.  I’m not so sure about that one but it is something to think
      about.

      Most times, I think it’s a matter of our focus.  Years ago, Leon and I watched the movie “The          Get Started Now!
      Secret”.  We sat down, like most people, and started dreaming about all the things we wanted                       *Email
      in our life.  One thing I remember Leon wanting was a new car.  We went so far as to go to a 
      dealer and pick out the exact car he wanted.  Soon after, he began to see this car all over the 
                                                                                                             start now
      place.  Now, I ask you, did he start creating these cars?  I don’t think so, I think what changed
      is he started noticing these cars.   His focus was on this car.

      Where is your focus today?  Is it on all the little crap that happens in our lives or is it on what 
      you want to achieve in your life?  I’m not talking about an attitude like glass half empty/full sort
                                                                                                             Daily Blogs
      of thing.  My focus today is on my intent to grow this business and put my family in a better 
      financial position.  I don’t want to stress over fifty bucks wasted, instead I want my son to           CAN YOU REALLY FORGIVE SOMEONE?
      always have more than enough money in his pocket to cover anything he needs.  If you want
