Show Notes

One of the most important aspects to overcoming any adversity is making a concerted effort….taking some kind of action to work your way out of it.

When you have a damaged kid, the most important thing in trying to effect change in their life is to gain their trust.

Holding Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die. Forgiveness is in incredibly effective antidote to moving on from someone hurting you. 

When you are down on yourself, find an area in your life that you are really good at, find your strength….everyone has one (maybe somewhere where you are able to contribute, something that you provide great value to the world) and focus on that.  If you play on that strength well enough, it will lead you out to better things. 

You are not the sum of what happens to you, you are the sum of your choices.

Most people who fail, whether it’s in relationships or business, believe that they deserve it.  Stop believing the bad things that people think about your or you think about yourself. There isn’t anything you can’t overcome...but it starts with belief.

Whatever you are going through right now, it will pass.  You will find people who are willing to help you if you are willing to help yourself.  Don’t feel sorry for yourself.
