44 Year Old Man Digs Out of Despair and Creates His Ideal Life:
Success Story #726
The author shared his remarkable story so you would hear it directly from him.
A few years ago, while in my mid-forties, I found myself facing new and very difficult challenges. I had been a very successful entrepreneur having started a business at the age of 16 and growing it for 30 years.
After a long and traumatic marriage to an abusive spouse, I had finally accepted the need to get a divorce and to get myself and my 2 young children separated from their mother. After an exhaustive five-year battle, and a generous settlement I was granted sole custody.
I was emotionally spent and near financial ruin. My business suffered. I owed almost $2 million in personal and business debt and I was on the verge of having my house foreclosed upon going into bankruptcy. As a single parent I needed to provide a stable, safe and nurturing home for my children.
Running the business usually took 60 hours per week. The responsibilities of being a full-time parent took away from the business and I slowly became overwhelmed with the challenges of running the business and caring for my children as a single parent.
I became over-stressed and experienced severe depression and anxiety. I developed insomnia and for over a year I regularly got only 2-3 hours of sleep per night. My body trembled and I experienced unrelenting rushes of adrenalin in my legs and arms. I had extreme difficulty functioning, let alone running the business.
I realized that I needed to make some changes but didn’t know how to get out of the predicament I was in. I couldn’t quit because I had 2 children depending on me. I couldn’t stand the thought of us being homeless.
I called The Coach Connection and talked to Bill, who redirected me towards where I wanted to go versus where I had been. Our call opened my perspectives to my real possibilities, and how I could achieve them, just by engaging the right coach.
I set goals in various areas of life such as family, business, financial, health, spiritual and relationship goals. My coach urged me to keep making my goals bigger that I was able to imagine by myself. It was remarkably difficult for me to visualize a better, let alone a “great” life for myself. I was so limited in my vision and imagination by the depression; anxiety and effects of long term sleep deprivation.
After establishing my goals, my coach worked with me to realize some of them. It felt so good to have an understanding and knowledgeable person guiding me through a phase in my life that I had not experienced before….and didn’t know how to handle. Every month, I made progress and I started to feel better. I know that I would have not taken many of those small steps toward “reinventing” myself and my life if I had tried to do it by myself without a guide and someone that I was accountable to.
I made dramatic progress and slowly turned myself and my world around. Every week I looked forward to the call from my coach. It felt good to receive the support and guidance. It felt even better to see the progress I was making each week and each month. After a little more than a year of coaching, my coach told me that she that she thought her mission had been completed because I had accomplished ALL of the goals I had established for myself. I knew she was right. It was hard to believe that I had accomplished all of those goals that a year earlier, I felt were “pie-in-the-sky” unattainable.
Thanks to my life coach, I was able to find the courage to break through my personal barriers and accomplish more than I could have ever dreamed possible. I truly was able to “reinvent” myself and my life. I sold my business of 32 years and became a real estate investor. Now, my work hours are much more flexible. My earnings are many times what they used to be. I expect to be able to retire in a few years. Four weeks ago I married my “soul mate” whom I’ve known for over 25 years and rediscovered a few years ago. Life is so much better now for me, my children and everyone I contact.
The reason that I am writing this is that I hope to inspire others to transform themselves and their lives into all they want them to be. My life is so much better, thanks to my coaching. Bill was right when he told me that “there is no need to suffer.”
