I remember being in the AT&T store last summer trying to get a new phone. The reason I could not get a new phone is because "I was not eligible for an upgrade". That didn't settle right with me. I usually don't take things personally but it was just that phrase that rubbed me the wrong way. And I get the circumstance, with the contract and all, but still I just didn't appreciate the fact that someone was telling me I couldn't have what I wanted even when I was going to give them money.
Having said that, sometimes circumstances or people try to tell us we are not eligible for an upgrade. It's too easy to take on that inferiority feeling, or to feel that you are just not good enough and you don't really have what it takes to get it done. Here is what we are to do, speak to that negative emotion and go ahead and give yourself that upgrade. Self esteem comes from self. You are authorized to go for it, to do it, to get it done, to call up will power from within, to establish concrete in your mind, to be steady in heart, and to treat people fairly in the process.
