So, how do you handle tough situations?


Faith and action was the bottom line answer from Donna Krech who was known as the “belief builder”. She said, it was her belief system that carried her through tough times, as she was being interviewed by Chris Widener, in the “Made For Success” series. As the youngest of seven kids, her mother was a working, stay a home mom while her dad was an alcoholic, who died when she was only 15. A lot of who we are is shaped by our early years. And some of it, follows us into adulthood.

Donna married an abusive alcoholic, and when she finally broke free she married a man who fought and beat cancer, four times in three years. Through it all, she kept her faith and never gave up. She said she learned to stop, take a deep breath, and to listen to the small voice within. She believed that as long as she kept her priorities straight, things would always work out; God, family, then everything else.

When asked how she survived, going from a negative situation of spending years with an abusive alcoholic husband, to one in which she became the wife of a cancer survivor. She said she never gave up, and focused on the things she felt she was called to do. We are all created for a particular purpose, and when we fulfill that purpose, we become stronger, and should be able to share, and then help others.

When you take the time to write down the things that you go through, in a journal, you leave a written record of your life. Just the fact that you sit down and get your thoughts down, helps you to see your day clearer. Same thing can be said of blogging. The biggest difference is your message, reaches more people. Whatever problems you may be going through, there is someone, somewhere with the same problem.

We are a product of our beliefs. What we think about all the time, is what happens. If you think positive that’s what you get, if you think negative, that’s also what you get. If we can change our focus we can change our belief. It’s the sowing and reaping process.

If you set a goal to make an additional $3,000 to $5,000 a month in a part time online business and you stay focused on it, and you work towards it, you will make it, if you don’t quit. If you are actively working on your personal development you will get better over time.

The empower network training programs were designed to help your personal development, from the Inner Circle audios to the Top Producer Formula and the Team Building Formula, and it all comes together when you attended the events and talked face to face with other people.

Another simple solution is to go to the “Success Store” and read and listen to people, who have had reached a certain level of success. You can re-program your brain, but it takes work. What you want and desire should have 100 % of your focused energy. If you want more, then you must become more than you were before.

If your job is not satisfying, then look at supplementing it with a part time business. If all you do is “push to survive” the daily grind, and “live for the weekend”, be careful, because life will creep up on you, and before you know it, time will slip away. Find your passion while you have the energy and then work your passion. Find something that will empower you to become better.

I chose the Empower Network because I’ve always liked to write as you can see. I still got the drive, and I feel that I still got time, before I arrive. Maybe it’s because, I’m what they call a “Baby Boomer” and we felt that we could change the world. We got some Boomers who left a mark that will not be forgotten, like Malcolm, Martin, and Mandela. Who are your heroes? Sign up and get started. This has been straight talk, beast mode.

Thanks for your comments. It’s been said that tough times don’t last, but tough people do. Life happens to us all. What we do, depends on how we look at things. As I write this, the following song, plays in the background:

Lord, You woke me up early this morning. And I thank you. You didn’t have to wake this morning, but you did. And I thank you. You woke me early this morning and you were right on time, and I thank you. I had my “health” and my “strength” and I was “clothed in my right mind”. You didn’t have to do it but you did. And I thank you.

I'm a two time military veteran (Air Force & US Army). I started blogging to keep my mind active after 40+ years of work. I joined the Air Force to escape the auto assembly line in Detroit. I went to Libya North Africa where Col. Muammar Graddafi was forcing the closure of the base there. The base commander, Col. Daniel "Chappie" James kept a lid on the situation. I was later commissioned in the Army, and "Chappie" became the first African American Four Star General for the Air Force. Blogging just opened up the flood gates. Standing in the Shadows, Listening to the Greats!!! will be my blog novel. If you don't write your story who will?
