I am definitely all about sharing experiences. It’s a way of helping others who are in a similar position to you. We don’t know what is going on in each others lives, but by talking, it opens gateways.
Today I want to share how a shy mother of two young boys, found herself in the most daunting position in her life. What was that you may ask? We all have ups and downs in life. Each of us think we are all going through a unique situation, and are the only ones experiencing it.
You are not the only one going through changes in circumstance in your life! There are tons of self help books on every imaginable circumstance you can google……
I went from happily married mother with a lovely family to becoming a single parent with two young boys. By the government standards my kids were in a family unit that did not stand a chance to progress in life, and even more so they were boys!!
My marriage broke down due to infidelity, and with that came mistrust. Nothing new here. But to me it was my world crashing around me.
So, being my proud independent self, I didn’t want to be seen as a failure, even though I really felt like one, with a failed marriage behind me. I won’t tell you here about what it did for my self esteem, that is another blog post! My logical head kicked in, and I had to find a way to replace the salary that just walked out of the door.
So I had to find something that I could do while still doing a full time job…. I wanted to be around my kids, they needed me more now than ever being a single parent.
So I researched companies and things I could do online to work from home in the evenings when the kids were in bed. That was the start of my Network Marketing Journey!!!
That was over 12 years ago now. Working in the Network Marketing Industry has helped me to develop myself personally, I have had so many great mentors and teachers along the way such as the late great Jim Rohn, John C Maxwell (met them both in person), Tony Robbins, Eric Worre, Diane Hochman, Ray Higdon, Jordan Schultz, Abdul Waheed and many more. This is a world I would never have entered if it were not for my circumstances of a failed marriage back then. So I guess I should thank my lucky stars that things happened they way they did.
Often we do not realise that we are being held back from our path of greatness, life gets in the way and distracts us as to the reason that we are here. Circumstance or fate whatever you wish to call it, brings you towards your path of greatness sometimes through tragedy, sometimes through ways which do not seem favourable at the time.
I truly believe this. Karma, the Universe, Law of Attraction, God, The Higher Being, what ever you refer to, you will be guided towards your greatness, but you have to learn how to listen, learn how to be guided, it is called your intuition. Some of us are more intuned to this than others. I will go through how you can improve your intuition through meditation in another blog post.
So, in closing my experience of developing one’s self, through reading recommended books such as
Jim Rohn – The Twelve Pillars
George Classon – The Richest Man in Babylon
Lynn Grabhorn – Excuse me Your Life is Waiting
Oprah Winfrey – What I know For Sure
More suggestions will be coming through in further blog posts, but these are the ones that helped improve my confidence, and set me on the path to where I am now!
