Should this stop you from releasing your greatness? Should other' decisions make you shrink from becoming the best you can be? Should other' decisions withhold your talents and value from the world?
Whatever has happened to you, please don't let it hold you back. While I do not condone their actions, you can take responsibility starting today by simply making a choice. Use what has happened to you as a strength!
When I tell my story to others and I share with them what I've been able to accomplish, it inspires them. The way I see it is that the worst your story is the greater your triumph and the more people you have the ability to inspire.
Growing up, I've had to deal with alcoholic parents, a mother who has suffered from severe depression, an abusive father, divorced parents, personal drug and alcohol addictions, gang related challenges, 3 attempted suicides, friends and family trying to convince my mother to give me up, and many of the other day-to-day struggles that had me feeling paralyzed.
After all of this and regardless of it, I've been able to completely transform myself and I now share what I've learned with the world
Regardless of what has happened to you in the past, make a decision today to be better, to reach out to others who have been where you were and inspire them by having a victorious mindset. Show them what's possible for them. Show them that regardless of what they've been through, they can reach greatness. Teach them that it's because of what they've been through that they are so great, because they're still here and still pushing on.
You have all of what you need right now to start your journey to greatness. Empower yourself through positive books, cd's and by surrounding yourself with people who will support you in your greatness.
