I was working on my first book when I learned why some people succeed and others fail.
I was 28 years old, newly divorced and the words were flowing out of me. My story of love, heartbreak, and how every young woman could heal from young divorce. I was sure I had a best seller.
And then I met a top agent from a top agency in LA and I was sure this was IT!!
But after reading my manuscript, he rejected my book.
Let's face it, at 28, I felt like he had rejected ME.
Having grown up thinking I had to be perfect at everything, I had no idea how to deal with this rejection. I felt like a loser and failure and the shame was more than I could bear.
So I gave up. For years.
I hear this story all the time. You were doing great with your exercise and eating plan until someone sent you candy for Valentines Day and months later, you're still beating yourself up and far away from the gym. You were almost done with your business plan when a family member got sick and you had to take time off and then you were too tired to start again.
You fall off the wagon and figure, “What's the point? I knew I couldn't do it.”
There's only ONE difference between people who succeed and people who fail. The #1 difference between people who realize their dreams and those who don't. In this week's Happy Monday motivational video, I share what that #1 difference is so that you can fulfill your purpose and succeed at all of your dreams. Watch it below:
Here's to YOUR purpose and success!
