I had been working close to 16 years by the time I had the alien eruption and the realization that I was poor! And at the current rate I was going, I’d remain poor all my life. Mind you, I had the outward appearance of a successful, young professional. I had the car, lived in a fairly huge apartment and had been travelling to distant and exciting places all these years. My net worth though, was way deep in the red negative. I was poorer (sic) than the church beggars who were closer to the black than I was. My future prospects were the same. I
had more debt than assets and I was living beyond my means every single paycheck.
I had no savings, and no sizeable investments either. I had dabbled in a couple of businesses that sank in a year (one of which was about cars, that I realized I was very much disinterested in). The alien that was poverty, scared me shitless. I saw the future and it was bleak. I was looking at having to work until I died….
I then resolved confront the alien in 2010 and annihilate it from my life. This is my confession and my journal.
PS. If you have the same alien lingering inside of you, you might want to spot check your net worth, my friends. Here is what I had back in 2010.
