Today I want to remind you that no one derails your train for long.

There are many slimy, scuzzy, low down people with no conscience and no soul in this world who are willing to prey upon victims.  We’ve all been preyed upon before, but when these people strike we cannot give them power.  No one derails your train for long!

Train track

If you become victimized in some way, have a good cry about it, shout obscenities about it.  Do whatever you need to do to process it, and get it out.  Then get back on that train and move right along, because if we give these people our power they will bring us down.  And the thing is, people who prey on other people have no power.  That’s why they are leeches trying to suck your power out of you!  When you ignore, ignore, ignore, and keep moving, no matter what anyone does to you, no matter what happens to you, you leave them in the dust, because really they are powerless.  You have the power.

No one can make this decision other than you to keep that train moving.  Keep it plugging along.  Keep going, and when something happens to you, after you recover, all you have to say is Next!  Next!  Next!  And you keep going.  Chug, chug, chug, chug right along.  Don’t let them drag you down.

They are leeches.  They are bottom feeders, and they can only take what you give them.  You might not have known, when they swindled you, what was happening, but now that you do know you don’t have to give them anything else anymore.  Energy is power and you can transform your pain into a different kind of energy, into a productive energy, into an energy that makes you strong.  Energy cannot be destroyed.  It can only be transformed.

Take that pain that you've suffered at the hands of a leech and transform it into your best self, and forget about it!  Forget about them.
