Daily Inspiration: Meet Ballarie Smith

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ballarie Smith.

Hi Ballarie, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
Hey my name is Ballarie, (Bal) for short. Most of my childhood wasn’t the best growing up. It wasn’t the worse either, but just like many other children I’ve had my share of trauma. My whole life I knew I was supposed to be a speaker or something. People used to always tell me how I talked too much, how I needed to be a therapist or counselor, jokingly. But aslife went on and things happened the dreams I once was certain would happen started to fade away. At 15, I became a single teen mom. I struggled with parenting and providing. I didn’t know what I was doing still. Highschool was a struggle at first. That is where I learned the meaning of ,If you want something bad you have to work for it. And I wanted to be the first in my immediate family to graduate High School despite being a teen mom. I had already missed majority of sophomore year. So when I enrolled back into school,I was put on probation. That is where my discipline set in.I went to school everyday & even taken upnight classes to make up credits. I graduated Highschool on the principals list, with a schlorship, and I also was first to speak at the Graduation. I was the first person in my family to graduate highschool & boy was I super proud of myself. After highschool I attended some college classes and obtained my Pharmacy Technician Diploma. Had another kid & his dad died shorly after I birthed my son. I’m a single mother of 2 children now. I’m broke, depressed, & in a unhealthy relationshp. I’m at my lowest. At one point I even thought about suicide. I needed a way out & fast. In September 2019 I was introduced to Laws Of Attraction by a friend. & who would of thought this was going to be the gateway to my future. I started learning more about the power of the mind & how ones thoughts is ones reality. So I put it to test. I reshifted my thinking by doing a 45 day mind reprogram that led to me unlocking different layers to myself. I had learned The Secret to a better life. And after witnessing my own big transformation it inspired me to write. I wrote Manifest That Shhh 10 Tools To Becoming Unstuck book. A short book to help you regain focus and motivation to strive for better. I had been saying for years how I was going to write a book. It all happened so fast. Once I made my mind up to win, my life started to change. This book has helped many many people transform they way of thinkng. It’s relatable, empowering, informational & authentic. My intentions are to simplify the information I’m learning and share it with the community. To teach people how to go within and seek their own power and become a beast at the new them. Just like Steve Harvey say “if you can hold it in your mind, you can hold it in your hand!”

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
This journey has been every bit of bumpy. I wanted to quit so many times. Give up & go on about my day as if I didn’t have lives to save. As if I wasn’t counting on me. I struggled with self-esteem & low onfidence. I didn’t trust myself. I had to go within and heal myself. I had to incorporate some real discipline. It’s making the decision that you are going to do better than what you did yesterday. Keeping your committment to your committment. There is no such thing as something for nothing. All work gets rewarded no matter how long it takes.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
