“Each level of glory, requires a new story.”
You may be asking, what do you mean a new story Evan? Well, the simple truth is, every limitation on your life is just a story that you are telling yourself. I know that hurts but deep down you know it’s true.
The proof is all around you if you’re still in denial, there are massively successful people that have gone through the same thing you have and worse. Helen Keller, Victor Frankl, Maya Angelou, Oprah Winfrey and one of my favorites Madame CJ Walker, the first female millionaire in the United States. Born into a family of salves in the south in the mid 1800’s. She was married at 14 and widowed with child by 20. She lived in the most toxic culture in some of the most toxic times in history. The south had lost the war, their confederate money is worthless and do you really think former slave masters changed their view of their now “free” slaves.
Yet it was in this time as a widowed single mother that Madame CJ Walker built her cosmetic empire. How did she do it? The only way she could, there was no welfare, their were no jobs with child care. She to took her kids in tow and went door to door selling her homemade beauty products.
Bottom line, she made it happen. She didn’t tell herself the story of “I don’t have money” “There are no opportunities for people of my skin color” There are no opportunities for females” etc… She told herself a different story.
She told herself a story of a successful business woman who could empower other women. Today is a new day for you to tell yourself a new story. Shred the victim story and create a victorious story about yourself! Create a victorious story about your marriage. It’s your choice, choose wisely.
