It didn't happen to you

We all experience situations that leave us at our wit's end.

 If you haven't, life has a way of humbling you from time to time. Look forward to it. I'm not trying to scare you here, this is just part of the process. The process of your life's plan unfolding. The process of you becoming better. The process of you overcoming.

Thing is, troubles and circumstances you experience are part of your plan. These situations are in place to create in you a spirit of perseverance and unshakable faith. We aren't certain of what our plans contain, but we can be certain that our life's plan will be prosperous. If you carry that thought process a little farther, every situation is helping you get closer to prospering. One of my favorite authors wrote "In every adversity, there's a seed of equal or greater benefit." Every circumstance, good or bad, is there for you to benefit from. 

In adversity, it's easy to get overwhelmed with emotion and temporary defeat. It's easy to ask "why me?" instead of "why not me?" It easy to give an excuse instead of continuing to pursue your passion. It's easy to stay down if you've fallen. There is an easy way out, but you don't take the easy way out. You scratch and claw until you've accomplished what you set out for. 

It's not over until you win. 

In all things give thanks. 

It didn't happen to you, it happened for you..

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt on the brink of losing everything I had to look myself in the mirror and take inventory. After making what I considered a tremendous amount of money at the time, now I sit here and realized I exhausted my savings, investments, credit, and almost ALL resources. I was blaming everything. The economy, bad partners, bad employees, stock market, location, bad vendors...you name it...I blamed it. But again, I had to take inventory How did I get here? Was it the economy? or was it me? Was it time to close businesses? Sell businesses? Sell assets? Was I successful as I thought I was? After careful consideration... I came to the conclusion I did work hard... I did do some things right.... but here I was... because I made some bad decisions and didn't hustle hard enough. Success made me soft. I stopped doing what I did to get there and coasted a bit. I did not prepare myself. I did not insulate myself. The economy WAS bad, but I still should have had better…

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your
