Live life like everyday your competing against your worst enemy. Want that job? quess what, your worst enemy just applied for it, and has an interview. Want that girl? Ha! your worst enemy just asked her out and she said yes. 

 

Think how much you hate that guy, and how you want to be better. Think about that anger building up, and how your feeling. Are you going to moan, and get nothing done? or are you going to go to take the guy to war? 

 

Get up, Get off the sofa, stop reading my posts, and get out there and capture everything you want in life, and don't come back until you have it. How bad do you want it? hahaha i think your worst enemy wants what you want, and he's going to get it because he wants it more than you..........

 

 

Prove me and him wrong, and do yourself justice. 

 

 

 

 

FYI, I wrote this for myself, I'm at  point in my life were i'm ready to go after everything, and not let a single thing slip, i may not be online as often, but i'm not stopping until i have everything. 

 

 

There's not a thing in the world that's going to stop me. (Apart from god, but he's fighting my corner) 

 

 

 

I'll lose a few battles, but i WILL win the war. And until i win the war, i won't let up.

For myself i found out fairly early in life that the biggest enemy is me and false pride.

I found a £10 note, on the floor of co op today. I handed it in to the girl at the till, and said, i found this, and i don't want to take it, it isn't mine. 

 

I'm either a really nice guy, or incredibly stupid.

Ugh I'm just like this. It really frustrates me after because I think - I could have had that; I need it and I could have had it but no I had to be nice and to the decent thing, :(

I've always been like it. I found a wallet when I was a child and Mum took me into the Police Station so I could hand it in. The guy came to collected it and he thanked me.

If I find money in a street - I'll pick it up because it's lucky...XD

 

If I see someone drop something I pick it up and chase after them shouting 'hey, excuse me, you dropped this!!!'.

 

Oh and you know at McDonald's, they have a loyalty card scheme for hot drinks. Well, when I have a full card, I get a free coffee, but sometimes we'll be ordering other stuff after the coffee and when we get to the till they forget to ask for the card. I sometimes get Chris to give it to them but if I've not noticed what's going on and Chris is like 'hehe they didn't take the card' I feel bad. Good as well though cause I get another free coffee - but I worry they'll get into trouble or something for forgetting. :(

I remember once I didn't really understand how it worked with buying something, I didn't understand there could be a mistake.. and I was ordering coffee once at Starbucks with my friends before a movie, and I thought the lady gave me too much change.. but instead of thinking.. wow maybe I should make sure it was the right change.. I just turned around and told my friends.. ahha look I got more money back than I thought I did.. and then my one friend looked at me funny.. and then I realized after that the person behind the till might of made a mistake and gave me more than she should have. :( I felt so bad after.. still do.. but now that I work behind the till and have almost done that a few times and I think have done that before.. not often.. I think it came back around at me. 

 

Also one time I was working and a lady decided to give me a dollar or two as a "tip" but I don't think we're allowed to accept tips, we're supposed to redirect them to the children's charity box.. but this lady said for me to put it in my pocket, that it was for me.. and so I did but then I felt really guilty.. and ended up putting the money back in the till... but then I remembered that I had put my own money in my pocket before work in case I wanted to buy something to eat on my break.. and then I think I tried taking part of it back out of the till but I left most of it because I wasn't sure how much it was and didn't want to look like I was stealing! :P  Now I just usually end up putting money people might give me as a "tip" into the box.. except this last time, a lady gave me a dollar because I was so nice and said specifically that it wasn't for the box but for me. :( So I ended up taking that one.  haha...

 

I also once felt bad because my friends and I were at this store once and there were these pink ribbons for breast cancer awareness and a donation box.. my friend was going to take one without putting any money in the donation box and she told me too as well and that it was okay but I still struggle to know if that was right or not.. Even though it was just a ribbon really. 

 

On another note that's related but not really related.. I really don't like when people ask for money.. I'm pretty sure it's illegal too and also it's horrible because I'd feel bad if they really needed the money but usually people who ask for money are drug addicts or something so it's not going to go towards anything good.  I just recently was walking to the bus to go to work and was stopped by this guy who asked for money for the bus.. I didn't have any cash on me thankfully.. and I remember learning the better thing to do is buy them food or something but then he wanted money for the bus apparently.. lol and he kept asking and I was like.. I don't think I have any change at all.. and then I even looked in my wallet and had nothing but a couple dimes and pennies and also some old bus tickets.. but I mean if he really wanted to use the bus he could've taken them to combine two together or gather more change or ask if the bus driver could still accept it(the fares rose in the beginning of this year).. but then when I finally got away from him, I saw two older ladies saying how they knew he was a drug addicted and got kicked out of some places for asking people for money.. I almost started getting teary eyed.  I hate it because some people really need help but then again, if people need help, there are organizations that help with that. :(  And it's not like I have loads of money either.  GRR!! lol  It makes me so frustrated, I was thinking of making a thread/topic on here about it too but then changed my mind.  :P
