I’ve lost everything, how do you keep on going when you have nothing left?

You may have found yourself here reading this because maybe you are going through a really challenging time in your life! Maybe you found my blog because you’ve searched on one of the many search engines these exact words ” I have lost everything “.

Well, It really doesn’t matter how you found this blog but I would like to give you my perspective on this:
First, be thankful for what you do have. You may think you have nothing left, but you’re still breathing and alive correct? I’m sure you have family or love ones that care about you, So be thankful of that.

I’m qualified to write about this because I have been there, I’ve experienced losing everything. Was just a
few short years ago that I lost a great paying career then shortly following lost the house, the car, savings. I was so miserable at the time that I simply just walked away and left many household furnishings behind like furniture , appliances etc. I simply was not in a state of mind to deal with it or care, so I just walked away.

I remember a good friend of mine at the time who helped gather a few of my belongings in a small u-haul.
We packed whatever we could and left the rest, anyways he said something to me that resonated really well
with me about my situation. He said while smacking his hand on my lost house :-)!

Shane, This is just brick and wood man, everything else inside is just material things. You can get it all back! Afterall it is just things and really doesn’t matter because it all can be replaced.”

He was absolutely right everyone, Sometimes in life we have to lose ourselves in order to see what is really important in life. If you are currently going through a similar situation I’m sorry as I know it can be difficult. You will continue to wake up each and everyday still breathing which is most important than anything.

Some of the things that I’ve learned after losing everything were as follows:

1. I appreciate life more and respect the now ” Today, living in the present “. I don’t think about the past or future as much anymore. I focus on each day and more greatfull that I am here to enjoy today the here and now!

 

2. Although I still currently work, I am now the boss!. Actually I work a part time job than focus the rest of my work week on my own business. I stopped being a slave to corporations and see a very good well balanced life ahead of me by working for myself first.

 

3. I downsized my life in general. Now, to me small is good. Bigger and more things in my life just cause me to be more of a slave just maintaining those things.

4. I allocate more time for myself, there is nothing more precious to life then time to enjoy it. I no longer work 55 to 65 hour work weeks, I don’t have the large lawn and big house to take care of. I simply downsized my life and love it!

 

5. I will never depend on working for someone else again, I will create my own destiny! I will continue to
grow in my business and current trade and live life on my terms. Simply Feel FREE now than ever before!

 

Just remember if you are currently about to lose everything , it is going to be okay. You will end up becoming more wiser and see life at a whole different level than you ever had before.

Success is found only outside of your comfort zone!

Are you stuck? Do you feel like you’re just spinning your wheels and not really making any significant changes in your life?

What if I told you that Success is there for each and everyone of us but only a small percent will ever have the courage to go get it. Why is that?

Well, I have been on my journey now for over 4 years and at first I just did not get it. I did not realize how important mindset was to achieve what I was after. Mindset is everything because you’ll need a very strong and positive mindset to break out of your comfort zone!

Once you get this it really just makes so much sense. Think about it? will you experience much change in your life if you keep doing the same things?

Reason why failure rate is so big in the network marketing or online marketing niche is because people are set in their ways. They fear change which may require calling leads, hearing rejection, Standing up on stage or leading a conference call in front of others.

Success is ONLY found outside of your comfort zone! When that clicks and you get it then maybe you’ll be more willing to step outside of your comfort zone.

If you are stuck or have road barriers holding you back from success I would like to recommend this free community below that may help you unleash that power within.

Are you Afraid of Success?

Hello and welcome to my very first post in this blog, I hope that you’ll enjoy my post.

Are you afraid of success? To tell you frankly, I used to be afraid of SUCCESS!, and it almost kept me from taking action and achieving my goals. I used to think that I did not deserve success, and only those that were smarter and more talented than I deserved success. I used to think that I was destined to just live a normal life with a job I hated for the next 40 years in exchange for security and comfort. Let me tell you something, I was so WRONG, its hogwash because we all deserve success and happiness.

But… Why are so many people settling? Why have people stopped dreaming? I often ask myself this question while shopping at the grocery store, mall, hardware store and observing employees. Have you noticed that most of them do not seem cheerful and happy? I mean everyone has had a dream right? everyone has a ton of potential correct?

I like to surround myself with other like minded individuals. We all have one thing in common, we have entrepreneur spirits and most of us do not want to settle for the norm.

Many of you including myself,  join sites like this because we have a business or perhaps starting a business for the first time and wish to network then get ideas that may help us. But the unfortunate reality is that out of the 70,000 plus members on this site many will quit and give up on that dream or goal of a thriving online or offline business. Why is that? is it because its not failure that you are more afraid of but perhaps its success that scares you ?

Here is a small list of indications that may mean you are afraid of success…

  •  You settle for less than you feel you deserve or are capable of achieving
  •  You start new project or join a new opportunity full of enthusiasm only for the excitement to wear down then you are off looking back at a uncompleted project and excited about the next. ” This happens all the time in network marketing , we call them program hoppers.”
  •  Spending a fortune on self improvement cd’s , courses, books , seminars etc but never using the information to improve your life. Many cases your life gets worse then before you took the course.
  • You expect things to go wrong no matter how well the situation appears to be at the moment.
  • Constantly over analyzing everything until you find somehing negative. Then once you find something negative, you lose interest and you start thinking of quitting.
  • Procrastination, putting off marketing or advertising which you know is essential to the sucess of your business.

If this resonates with any of you, I just want to let you know it’s completely okay. I mean who hasn’t had some of the thoughts above. But my question to you is what are you doing about it?

I’m writing about this because I am passionate about what I’m saying. you see I used to be one of those persons that had a ton of roadblocks up that held me back from reaching and continuing to reach my full potential.

I was once one of those guys that would blame my opportunity, products , or compensation plan on reasons why I was not successful. It wasn’t until I realized and understood that it was not the opportunity I was promoting it was ME that was the problem. I had to do a complete mental mindshift because I am good enough, and I’m worthy of success just like each and everyone of you.

All those thoughts and self doubts that I heard in my head were a big fat LIE.

For example, in my industry there are thousands of companies to become a distributor for. Each company has hundreds of people earning a very healthy six figure yearly income. So its not the opportunity , its YOU.

If you’re already successful and exactly where you want to be right now then kudo’s to you. You don’t need to hear this. For those of you that have been in a industry for years with little to no success then my  question would be Are you afraid of Success?  It wasn’t until I took a good look at myself and started to ignore those doubts in my mind and pushing forward until I started realizing and seeing results in my business.

I want to leave you with this quote…

“If you believe you can then you are right, if you believe you can’t then you are also right.”
