One thing I’ve learnt in my lifetime very early on is that is there is no such thing as a secret. If you really want something to be a secret, then just don’t tell anyone. And I mean ANYONE. I’ve tried and tested this so many times since I was a teenager up to when I was in my twenties when I told only 1 person in the entire world, sometimes a real secret, sometimes something I just made up (for the sake of the exercise), and almost always, I’d hear back that same secret through another source; which really confirmed to me that that particular person was not capable of keeping a secret. Many people just can’t resist spreading a secret!
However, as much as I don’t trust anyone in keeping a secret, I say with great pride that when I tell you I’d keep a secret from anyone in the whole wide world, I really do. I won’t even tell my husband. Speaking of which, if I could trust one person in this world about keeping a secret, it would be my husband. I trust him implicitly.
Sometimes I tell someone to not tell anyone about something but eventually the person forgets or thinks it so insignificant that they mean no harm. And then my secret spreads……slowly but surely. This pisses me off!
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t have such a treasure chest of secrets that everyone would love to dig into. I am pretty much an open book. It just irks me that people cannot keep secrets. Sometimes I’d just make things up and people will spread it. Why can’t they just LISTEN and RESPECT my wishes that this should be kept between us, and only us?
This is one of two things in my life that I have problems grasping – keeping secrets and jealousy. I don’t understand the concept of jealousy either i.e. I don’t know how to feel jealousy and I don’t understand why people can’t keep secrets, because I can.
Who is Mamapumpkin?
Mamapumpkin spent 7 years in London committing crimes to gain her Bartlett BSc in Architecture. She spent 7 years as a Stay At Home Mom raising her children as documented in this Mamapumpkin blog since over 10 years ago and thereafter returned to the Corporate World stronger than ever. Her last job as Country Director of a British Railway Signalling organisation saw her getting ill with an aortal and mitral heart valve regurgitation and early stage cancer. Through her journey from working to not working to working again, she sets out to prove to all women that they can do anything and everything that they set out to do; as long as they have that fire of desire burning within and the drive to work hard. Even better with oodles of love, passion and integrity.
Despite being ill, she has grown a network marketing business from very little knowledge and experience in the otherwise infamously known MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) industry, racing from an income of ZERO to RM 100,000 monthly in merely 2 years. She is a firm believer of the MLM business model but realises the pitfalls too and understands how and why the majority of people would shy away (or zoom far away) from any MLM business.
She is now pondering the title of her new book, From Zero to 100,000 RM monthly in 2 years and has a sequel in the pipeline with the aim of helping real professionals succeed in the World of MLM. Always the giver, Mamapumpkin has supported orphans for over 30 years and has now extended her care to the sick, single mothers, and even struggling families. She believes that with the MLM business model, we can all have a life of our own desires to enable real contribution into the world.
A beautiful life without limits.
Mamapumpkin currently manages the Homeschooling Hub Malaysia on Facebook. She also runs Working Women Malaysia (not THAT kind of Working Women!), Mamapumpkin - Creating A Life of Abundance, and Funky Moms on Facebook to offer REAL support to all women who want career and life success. She is a living testimony that women really can have a lot. Being financially free has enabled her to travel the world anytime anywhere doing anything, and she spends most of her day to day with her children, reading and supporting other women.
