Dear steemians receive warm greetings from @breeze.com. It is with much joy and optimistic mindset that I present to you my entry for this wonderful context. I thank @thegreens for such a wonderful initiative.

To start with, I will like us to reflect on some thoughts;

  • Do you want to start up a new business?
  • Do you want to quit a bad habit that has been bordering you for years?
  • Do you have trouble meeting up with your financial needs?
  • Do you have low self-esteem?

If you have been wondering and battling with one or some of those thoughts then I put to you, that you are not alone . They are millions of people out there wondering over the same thoughts .My beautiful people this post titled " The power of the mind” is inspired by a personal life experience. Permit me share with you.

I am am from a poor family background though happy , we could hardly meet our financial needs. I kept wondering what I could do to raise my standards of living and that of my family .But that seem impossible because I had nothing as financial capital to start up with. However I remained optimistic and always kept a positive mind set. One day while passing at th university gate in bambili around august 2007 I realize a lot of people had files in their hands and the place was looking so busy and congested.By the then it was called the higher teachers training college (HTTC )Bambili uder the university of Yaounde 1. And I was a Lower Sixth student in the Cameroon college of arts science and technology (CCAST )Bambili. I came back from school one day after been beaten very well by hunger I immediately put my mind to work. I made up my mind to be of help to those new students who just came in seeking to apply for the competitive entrance to the HTTC BAMBILI. Many of them were stranded and didn’t know which office to go to, so i volunteered to act as a guide showing them each office were they could receive the much needed services like applying for medical certificate and get their registration forms stamped and approved. Being a secondary school student by then it was not easy directing and even assisting most new comers who had already had advanced level and more knowlegeable than myself.I even assisted some fill their forms for the compilation process.

I was intend motivated with cash and verbal appraisals in most cases. We were given holidays in a few days and I took it as temporal employment .Behold I was able to save money which I used it to buy a clipper and stamped envelopes. I filled documents, clip pictures on them and sold stamped envelopes.This was my startup capital and from there I was able to purchase a a small digital camera and past questions.I used the small digital camera to take instant passport photos while selling past questions to candidates who wished to go in for the entance examination. I was able to take care of myself and my sister without bodering my parents. I later saved money to acquire the NIKon D5100 professional camera (350000 frs CFA by then)

Canon D5100

and a canon mini passport printer (worth 90 0000frs CFA ) which I am still using till date at breeze documentation

Mini Canon photo printer

and the story continues................

Dear steemians it all started in the mind, your mind is a startup point where every good or bad plan is conceived and grows…you want to be rich? change your mind set now and think ideas that will make you rich,you want to impact lives? Work on your mind set.No wonder Megan Blatchford peck admits “I am seven times world chapion and mind power techniques were a huge factor in my success". Also, jim man says "I raise millions of dollars with mind power and saved our company”
@yeesja puts it in his article (MY HEART BLEEDS FOR AFRICAN YOUTHS)
“LET’S SAY NO TO BAD GOVERNANCE IN AFRICA, NO TO GUNS…….) This is indeed possible if we start cultivating a positive mindset …
To sum up my fellow steemiams we can build a positive mindset by;

  • Excersing regularly
  • Praying regularly
  • Remaining socially involved (keep steeming is one of the ways you can remain socially active)
  • Eating healthy foods
  • Staying connected to positive thinking people etc.

"Remember optimistism remains the watch word"

Thanks for reading

If I had never been to Bambili before I could say you just picked up this story from somewhere. People actually feed on this.

I remember my first time of being in the university 2015. I was really stranded. One guy helped me out the whole day. From office to office. He even filled my form A for me. I was really happy. I appreciated him with cash. It was indeed a relieve to find someone I can trust to aid me. Thank you so much for this write up it really all behind from the mind.
