Making your dreams come true is all about surviving life and what it throws in your way to keep you from hitting the big time.
That’s one way of looking at it.
That’s how it usually feels as the crap hits the fan when you least expect it.
In reality, these “problems” are just hurdles.
And by jumping over each successive obstacle and plowing forward, you become a stronger individual, hence, a stronger creator of your own dream.
These events are also class time
Every problem you survive and solve leaves you stronger and smarter than you were prior to reaching the solution.
This process is also called “building character”, a term we’ve come to associate with pain, suffering, and the experiencing of distasteful or necessary evils.
However you choose to look at these times when fans are blowing “stuff”, they need to be survived. This is so you can not only prosper but also have the chance to hopefully reminisce about the days that made you into the great entity you are today.
Life hammered you and you hammered back. You stopped beating your head against the wall. The light bulb went off. You found another way. You finally spoke up. You stopped trying so hard and when you did, the problem vanished.
You changed. You escaped. You got help. You overcame something you thought impossible to beat. Whatever the key moment or moments, the things you survive are what make you who you are to a large degree.
I spent the bulk of my time surviving life rather than living it
I’ve even been clinically dead twice and in comas twice. Survived missile attacks and ocean hurricanes, not to mention every bit of my twenties. I’m hard to keep down.
These experiences and about a few thousand more taught me what I needed to know to be here with you today, prospering as I build my legacy right along with you.
The short list is as follows:
I’m looking for the other survivors out there too. Some of you have never come close to the amount of trauma I’ve endured and learned from. Others have endured so much that it makes my story look like a walk in the park in comparison.
Either way, I want to be connected to you all. Every one of you has something important to share about what you’ve survived. The intensity of the struggle doesn’t matter but the intensity of the lesson, its meaning to you, and your burning need to share it matters greatly.
If that last sentence resonates with you, then we need to know each other better and that’s what my site and mission are all about.
