We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting. Joseph Campbell
When a crisis hits you like loss of some kind, an accident or illness, you can either rise above or sink into the abyss. The choice is yours. There have been a few times in my life where I was at the edge of despair. We all go through times that can rattle us to the core of our being. We plan our life, set goals and work hard to accomplish them and boom, something happens that takes you in a completely different direction.
For awhile we feel sorry for ourselves and wonder why this is happening. However if you have a strong inner drive with purpose and passion, you will soon see the silver lining in that seemingly misfortune. ” Every adversity, every failure, every heartbreak, carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.” Napoleon Hill
With guidance, perseverance, and faith you will rise above. Stay true to being YOU!
You must jump into the unknown, for it is there that the answers to your search will reveal themselves.
To find out how you can discover your best life, call for a free consultation and begin living with passion and purpose!

I have failed at so many things that you would think I would be stuck, sad and resentful! However, I am just the opposite. I look at the bigger picture. I look at it as failing forward. I keep moving forward until I reach a breakthrough.
You see, if your not failing, you’re probably not really moving forward. You must use adversity to improve yourself and climb higher. If your mind is fixed and inflexible you won’t even try, but if your open to growing, you will try something even if it doesn’t work out.
Sara Blakely became the youngest self made billionaire by her drive and determination to fail forward. She was encouraged as a young girl to try new things, and if she failed
( which was often) was congratulated for putting in the effort. If we can learn by her example we would all develop the growth mindset instead of the fixed one.
You only fail when you give up, so keep going!

I just love being around people who inspire me. People who are upbeat, positive, and responsible. People who have been through adversity, however choose to overcome their challenges. Last night, I attended my toastmasters meeting and the members are people who inspire. One woman, gave her icebreaker speech that was so touching, personal, and inspirational, that you felt like you were right there, in her story. Wow. it was so good. That’s how we connect through the heart with compassion.
Another gentleman, gave an advance speech about, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. He gave us all hand-outs on “20 Things Boys Can Do to Become Men”, by Kareem Abdul Jabbar. I learned so much about this great sports figure and man that it inspired me to want to be a better person. That’s what people who inspire, do. So, who are you associating with? Do you feel good around them or are they draining you of your vital life giving energy. See, you become who you associate with. I want to be a better person. When I am around people who are uplifting, positive, and responsible, I’m uplifted. Being around people who are being reactive, and playing the victim, is not healthy. The great thing is you can choose who you want to be around. I choose to inspire others so I hang with those same people. Choose wisely!

“In order, for faith to grow, adversity must be faced. Through trials and tribulations, strength is found.” Faith Tiley Johnson”
Recently, I have been faced with a trial. One that required making a decision that wasn’t easy to make. It caused someone to be very disappointed, however I knew that it was for my highest good. It was a trial for me. I have been faced with many trials and tribulations in my life, and they have shaped me into the person I am today. A strong, confident, and faithful woman. How about you? Is your life smooth sailing or are you faced with trials and tribulations? In order to grow and become strong you must withstand the storms of life. So turn your mess into a message, a test into a testimony, a trial into a triumph and a victim into a victory!
