Fulfilled Dream

Things may occur out of your expectations either positively or negatively.It wasn't too long when i become a successful lady in the community.These was due to my hard-working & psychologically creative.I was a business woman, therefore i turned into musician remember i never seek any kind of support from anybody else interms of financial or materialism, this was where i came to realize," I tried to spread out this kind of mentality to my fellow community members but they wre such hard- nut to be cracked.the only way made me to win their laziness, was through holding a meeting every two days of the week, accompanied by guidance or telling them some of the outcomers of rich people due to hard-working.This sound like supposition to some people & not to others,I came identify that supposition is a misleading phenomena.Those who smelled the cough & woke up succeeded.From there my community changed positively and became a global place, where by others admired to join us, thats how my community became successful.
