You don't have to be female to enjoy a women motivational success story. I have been educated by many history books in schools written by men and about men and yet received an education to better myself as a woman. The word "history" says it all, doesn't it?..."his" "story". I am about to tell you "her" "story". The following is a woman's tale of success, failure and then success. This "trio" of: success, failure, success has played out several times however I will share with you with the best ones.
One last thing I need to say before I continue on this women motivational theme is that as you read this article remember that you too have a story to tell. We all have our tales of happenings that when told can inspire and bring to new life someone's existence. We are all one human race and are all entangled with webs of mediocrity. The purpose of this article and this web site is to bring you to levels of success to fulfill a purpose only you can realize and execute. Let's begin now.
Several years back I was running my own house cleaning business. I was living in a three bedroom, two bath home that I purchased and qualified for based on the income of my successful business. I was also raising two daughters as a single parent. I paid my mortgage on time, had all my other bills paid when due, and I was able to bring my daughters to the local mall to buy the finest clothes and shoes, when needed. I had money in the bank and in my pocket.
My young girls had their own spending money as well when they went out and did not want for anything. We had wonderful food in our fridge: fresh meats, organic vegetables, fruits and cereals. I made dinner each and every evening and we all sat down together to enjoy our supper and talk about the day. This certainly fits the theme of women motivational success stories I am talking about, right? Just wait...
One dark and stormy night (metaphorically, of course) that stands out in the memories of my mind is the time I stood in a church food line for over an hour with the homeless, the jobless, the destitute and the desperate. I did this in order to obtain a box of free food to feed my children and myself. A women's motivational success story it is not, yet.
This food obtained from the local churches and was normally on the expired side. The groceries obtained were the "throw away" food from the local supermarkets that were donated to these area churches. All this said, I was eternally grateful. I just had to add this bit of info in to compare with what I use to have and the following is how all of this came about.
The town that I lived in at the time had changed. Major businesses that employed thousands of people had shut down. Jobs were scarce and when available only paid the state mandated minimum wage. People were not able to pay their mortgages and therefore fill the recessional sinkhole of foreclosure and bankruptcy. This women motivational story degrades such at this time.
Families were leaving my area and even my state to find greener pastures to prosper in and some kind of full time work that would pay enough money to support a family. People were struggling to put food on the table much less hire someone like me to clean their home.
This "failure" part of women motivational stories is where I learned a great lesson. Sometimes in business as well in life, we have to change things around a little. I had to change myself, my business and evolve to even greater heights. I was propelled to leave my successful and prosperous, until then, house cleaning business to pursue an even greater dream that awaited me on the heavenly clouds of entrepreneurship.
The place where I once prospered was urging me to move on, to take a risk, to plant my seed of prosperity somewhere else. I desired a place where I could work a full time position or reestablish yet another successful business. I wanted a place where I could earn enough money to take care of myself, my children and assist others in need. I wanted to own another house and not ever worry about it being foreclosed on. I wanted to prosper once again and give back to the needy who stood in the food lines with me. I wanted to have money in the bank again. I needed to buy fresh food again and eat the wonderful meals I was use to. I did not want to worry about how old the meat was or if I have cut off all the mold that had begun to grow on the fruits and vegetables I so gratefully received.
Basically, I wanted to start my life over again so I could show my two daughters that women's motivational stories are filled with ups and downs, but the key is to NEVER give up.
I was being pushed away from the place I had raised my children back to other soils to plant my new seeds of prosperity. I went back to a place I felt happy in and prospered on higher plains where there are beautiful snow capped mountains. I changed my career to my "passion" of writing (articles and books) and have never looked back. I am doing what I love to do and am even more successful than before.
How's THAT for a women motivational story? It's all in how you handle it. However, the real important move was in my mind. I could live anywhere I want doing what I do now.
All this being said, I was propelled back to a place where my ancestors prospered, a place where I now call home. I live in a New England state with four wonderful seasons and I am happy. Sometimes we have to pull up our stakes, our seed, and go to a richer soil that will grow the kind of seed we are expecting and have a right to inherit. My old seed had expired, yet my new seed will dig deeper in the rich, black soil of this great earth and yield the fruits I ask of it.
I have moved in my Universal mind to a place where I am triumphant. Women motivational success story, I am and so can you.
I think failures are disguised as spiritual teachings to align us on our purpose driven path. Failures are not negative attributes, they are lessons that we are to learn to reach our ultimate heavenly purpose here on earth. I think that until we get to the place in our lives that we are meant to be in, we will experience failures and suffering to lead us out. I was lead out when my first business took a turn for the worse. However, once we realize where we do not belong, we will awaken to the real nature of our own unique and prosperous being.
In summary, all women's motivational stories include ups and downs. And in my experience, all the so-called "downs" make all the "ups" even more delicious than the one before. I am reaping the good life and giving back so others (that means YOU) can enjoy as well. I want to lift you up and bring you to places you know you deserve to be.
Be the superhero of your own life. Don't wait for that "prince" to come by on the proverbial white horse and carry you off to "happily ever after." Make your own happy! Be your own hero!
