It’s interesting how sometimes Life tells you to wake up and change by letting you hit rock bottom…
Now I’ve had lots of ups and downs over the years like I think most people have. But I got my big wake-up call about 10 years ago when I was very down on my luck.
I lost my job as part of a large corporate layoff, and unlike other times I had been laid off, this time a year went by and I was still unemployed. Fortunately, I had received a good severance package; but by then, the severance money was long gone, and my wife and I were in serious financial difficulty and had to tap our retirement investments.
As you can imagine, I was distraught. I was getting very few interviews, and those few did not result in a job offer. I was anxious, full of fear, and couldn’t sleep. I really didn’t know what to do to turn things around.
And then I received a mailer piece delivered by snail mail. And it got my attention because it was about turning your life around and finding abundance in all its multiple forms. I ordered the DVD product which had some videos and audios.
When I received the product and studied what it had to offer, I suddenly realized that it was telling me things that I had heard before but had forgotten. More than that, it gave me hope and it made me realize that I needed to change my thinking. And as I studied it more and more, I realized I needed to change my approach to life because I was not serving my true purpose very well.
In my next post, I will pick up this story where I left off…
