19 years ago I was faced with a dilemma. My life changed dramatically. What Should’ve been a stable place called home was a place of chaos.
My marriage broke down, and I found myself alone, a single mother with two young boys aged five and 10. A house with a huge mortgage that was previously being maintained by two salaries, and lots of bills.
I could’ve given up there and then, but the fighter in me and the priding me would not allow it. I failed to give my boys a roof over their head, and the best in life that I could with what I had.
Was it easy? It sure wasn’t. There were times when I didn’t even know where the next meal was going to come from, or how I would get to work as I didn’t have enough money in my account. The term living from paycheque to pay check that’s no joke. This was my life!
The pride and stubbornness in me stopped me from asking for help where I knew I possibly could have especially from my parents.
I began to look for a way that I could replace the income that walked out of the door. This was the beginning of my network marketing journey. You see, when you are pushed tightly up against a wall you can either submit and giving, or you can fight and try and get around the wall, over the wall, or through the wall.
I stopped feeling sorry for myself and began fighting for my survival, for my sanity and for my kids. I vowed I would never be put in such a vulnerable position ever again.
My journey especially self development has been phenomenal, the support I received within this industry has made me go from strength to strength. Recognising my abilities, striving through my pain and sharing my struggles have not only helped me, but also helped others who were also going through difficult times in their lives.
Your past does not define you, your history does not define you, only you can make a change. But that change has to come from within you.
What is your reason to succeed, think about it because this will always drive you and push you and focus you to achieve.
