Sooner or later, we all confront gut-wrenching challenges. You or someone you love becomes seriously ill. You unexpectedly lose your job, or your business starts hemorrhaging money. Your marriage hits the rocks. Your adult child struggles with finding his or her place in the world. A loved one suddenly dies.
A wave of fear and angst comes crashing over you. You feel shaken and off kilter. You wonder how you will make it through this terrible storm.
You will navigate the storm. Yes, it will be hard, incredibly hard, and there will be intense moments of loss, anguish, and fear. Still, you will figure out how to do what needs to be done for you and your loved ones.
You will figure it out because you have enormous resources at your disposal. This is not your first brush with adversity. You have overcome tough times before, and in those times, you have learned what you need to do to survive, and even thrive, during difficult times.
You have built a network of relationships that includes people with talents, expertise, and wisdom you can call on when needed. You have honed your talents over time, and you can now draw on those talents to help you through this difficult time.
You have spent your life preparing for this moment. You can handle whatever adversity comes your way.
