Drawing strength from your struggles!
I believe that we are all warriors, built with amazing greatness and power within us, we have what it takes to live incredible lives! But we will face struggles; that is a fact.
In 2009, I went up against a major obstacle, embezzlement. Over the course of a 3 year period my controller, someone I was trusting with our money, had been stealing. Over $500,000! My CFO was supposed to be on top of it, but he wasn't. It was a huge blow. Coming off some amazingly successful years, I brushed it aside because I knew I could make more money. But then in January of 2010 I lost the top agent with my company, and then preceded to lose over half of my 70 agents. I kept going, but then came blow #3, divorce. I sank into a deep depression believing my life was over. I barely had the will to live.
In your life and in your business, you will come up against great obstacles, great difficulties and great tragedies. You cannot give up though. Many people stop going after their dream when they face adversity. They believe that their vision is just not to be. They become stagnant and lose their drive and passion. This is a normal feeling. I wanted to give u - as a matter of fact, there were many days I contemplated not moving forward at all, dark days.
If you are facing major struggles, do not give up. There is a plan for you. There is hope, all is not lost when something is lost, just that something is gone. There is more for you, better times lie ahead if you just keep pushing and drawing strength from your struggles.
I am thriving again. It took 3 long years, but my life now is better than I could have ever imagined. My vision is back. I have a beautiful fiancé who I am deeply in love with, my company is thriving, I am healthy, happy and whole. I wanted to give up, but I never did. You cannot give up either, you have a bigger, brighter future, there is a more amazing plan for you!
Have a kickass day! cg
