We all experience life challenges that looking back we can see were the catalyst for living a deeper, more authentic life. What has been your greatest personal challenge that you’ve overcome that served as your pivot point to transformation?
My greatest challenge – Not allowing my Happiness to be based or influenced from another persons’ Mind and/or Opinion. What do I mean by this?
As a person who has overcome trauma – it is a natural tendency to automatically suffer low self-esteem. This low self-esteem always manifests symptoms of demanding outward validation from the approval of others.
The futile nature of this irrational solution is of course there is never enough outward validation from others, and always an over-abundant amount of rejection and negative feedback from others – hence – self-esteem gained in this way from other people is never possible.
The pivot point for me has been to focus on pleasing one person – and my standard for this one person is God.
If I am in good conscience and peace to do my best on the basis of this one standard, I am free to have secure self-esteem regardless of outside opinion.
Describe the transformational moment or wake-up call when you realized that life change was necessary? For many, it’s a spiritual awakening, an emotional downfall, or a life-altering experience that shakes us awake.
For me, it was an accumulation of events which perhaps first became obvious with my fathers near death experience, which woke me up to the illusion that I didn’t have any control over anything in my life, that God may actually exist, that I am not going to live forever, the people I love won’t live forever, nothing truly lasts, and the humbling shocking awareness that life is not fair, and perhaps my priorities of what I had invested the most of myself into – were not going to repay what I truly needed most.
After experiencing your personal wake-up call what were the most powerful steps you took to change your life?
Educating myself, reading, prayer, pilgrimage, finding new mentors who had what I wanted and needed.
