One Person Can Connect You and Your Destiny

The major turning point in my life was when I started being mentored by a business executive.  Have you ever been to the place where you thought life was not worth living and you found it hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel?  I’ve been there.  Sometimes life knocks us down repeatedly and we don’t know what to do about it.  My mentorship was the single most important factor in my transformation.  My mentor saw my potential. Not only did he see my potential; he worked diligently along with me to reframe my thoughts and to develop my talent and skills.  The truth is had it not been for this mentorship, I have no idea of where I would be today.

A lot of times in life we are embarrassed or ashamed of our circumstances.  We don’t want people to know that we are having hard times and/or have hit rock bottom.  There are other times when we are so comfortable and content to live a life with no purpose because we don’t want the responsibility that comes with living our purpose. It is often said to whom much is given much is required and so there is a huge responsibility involved with living your purpose. Sometimes, we hide our deficiencies and we are defensive of our “mess” because we are afraid that we can’t do any better.  Sometimes we isolate ourselves from others because we don’t want to be pushed into achieving our highest level of performance.

In my recently released book “Bruised But NOT Broken”, I share the experiences that led me to consider giving up on life and how my mentor helped me to move from the state of being filled with black and blue bruises to today where my scabs and scars are gone and all that remains is a stronger, much more passionate person who is relentlessly chasing her dreams.  The journey to get to the place where accomplishing my goals and chasing my dreams is my major focus and overcoming setbacks and disappointments are not as difficult as they used to be was not an easy one.  Despite the difficulty of working through my issues, I believed that the light at the end of the tunnel would be worth it and it definitely is.

My mentor saw me clearly.  I didn’t see myself.  Actually I didn’t believe my mentor when he first told me about my talent and potential.  I couldn’t believe that he was talking about me -a woman with so much baggage and trauma.  One of the lessons I took away from this mentorship is that one person can make a huge difference in your life BUT you must be open to growing, learning, pushing and working through the barriers that prevent you from embracing life to its fullest.

Are you full of potential?  Do you have dreams you want to accomplish?  Do you want a better life for you, for your children and for your children’s children?  What dreams are you sitting on?  What skills have you been blessed with?  Are you making returns on your talents or are you hiding them to keep them safe?

 

Today, I would like to encourage you to align yourself with a mentor or a coach and let them help you become the best and highest version of you.  Trust me – it is absolutely worth it.
