FEAR OF FAILING
our fortune emerges.
I've helped many business owners over the years. I've done everything from mentoring new entrepreneurs to consulting with major corporations. What I've learned over the years is that when we focus on relationship building, a balanced life, and helping others... we succeed.
My passion to help others overcome fear, prevent failure, and achieve success started when I was 18 years old.
It all comes from a very personal place. My wonderful "Mama" opened her own furniture business when I was in high school. Just like every entrepreneur out there, she poured her heart and soul into her business. The long-hours and physical labor never wore her down because the adrenaline rush from doing something she loved empowered her to keep going every. single. day.
Eventually... after a few bad decisions and a crashing economy... my mother closed her furniture store. It wasn't long after that when the bank put a foreclosure sign in the lawn of our home. A few days after that... the bank repossessed my mother's car.
I was 18 years old when I watched my mother experience the biggest heartbreak of her life. She lost everything that she had worked so very hard for. Believe it or not... I look back on that time and realize what a blessing it was to loose everything at such a young age. I learned more in those years of traumatic loss and heartbreak than I could ever write on this page.
You see... that traumatic experience changed my life trajectory. It gave me a new dream and meaning for life. So, I became the first person in my family to graduate college. My parents couldn't lavish me with a nice dorm room or even help pay for my tuition, but I refused to give up on my new dream... so I worked a full-time job while being a full-time college student. I became determined to succeed at life.
Not long after graduating college, I realized that "success" in life didn't mean having a lot of money. It meant having a healthy life with meaningful relationships. Money is necessary, but how much money we have doesn't determine our success. In fact... success is really about the impact you make on the world.
I'm not sure what your story holds, but here is something that I am 100% confident about: It is time that we take all of the negative experiences and fear that is holding us back and turn them into tools to fulfill our purpose. That, my friend, is how we will go from "failing" to "fortune."

I'll admit that I'm a personality test junkie.
