When you lose everything it really feels like you hit rock bottom.
What do you have to live for?
Where is my place in this world?
And yes you may not get it on the first try. Trial n error happens until you eventually find what works best for you.
This is the point where you can start working on yourself.
Recognizing your talents.
Shooting for the stars.
Doing what you feel is necessary to get there.
Over the past year or so I have met a lot of great people on LinkedIn. For some of them I found out parts of their story but I really only knew the tip of it.
The few I know of have stepped out to others through help with coaching, resumes, etc.
I looked past the differences on the surface and inside because I know everyone is unique. We all come from different backgrounds. We were all raised differently. We may have different religions. Different sexual orientations. Different families. Different careers. Different education levels. And so on.
This is what makes each of us unique.
I found out today deeper in the background of one of my connections. It was shocking ro learn this but I am thankful that he is where he is today.
And the guy who is living out a dream to see the world and be from the stuff.
Or the guy who risks his life for others in order to see others live and sacrifices time with his wife and daughter to help others out.
I am not putting names here but I’m sure some of my LinkedIn connections will be able to.
When you loose everything and quite possibly give up on yourself you are only creeping towards rock bottom. From there, you need to ask yourself these 3 questions:
- What am I good at?
- How did I get here and what can I learn from it?
- Where do I want to be?
Happy Sunday all!
