Forgiveness- My Key to Success
Today I want to talk to you about Uncommon Keys to having a great life. Uncommon Keys to having a great life. I want to talk to you today about Forgiveness. Oh, a word that’s kind of just throws you off a little bit. Forgiveness. You are like, no that is really a soft type of word, talking about having a great life but it’s an uncommon key. Why is it uncommon? Because there are so many of us, people or human beings walk around living a life un-maximized because we haven’t found forgiveness for certain situations, certain people, mostly. Now imagine this, living a great life and having your life maximized by truly implementing forgiveness.
No one talks to you about why forgiveness is so important but I am going to share a really personal story of me. When I was seven years old, I was molested by a neighbor child, a teenager boy more than one time. This went on for about a year and this is an opportunity where it just didn’t feel right. When you are seven years old, you are so young, you are so impressionable and really the trust was broken. There was distrust developed and it was abused. And that abuse, that happen really put me in the life spin where I was trying to figure out why, for what reason, what did I do? And a lot of times people that run through abuse to somebody that’s dealt with some challenging times of their life and really internalize it to make it be something bigger than it is. Is it big? Yes it is a big deal. But sometimes we internalize things, we blow it out of proportion. Even we had no reason for it happening, we did nothing to even want it or to even bring it on to ourselves. But in that situation for me, and I hope to share that story a little more in detail, you know in podcast or video like this.
But I want to share it with you, that opportunity when I was young – as I was raised and grew up, that came up with me. And I am just trying to understand it, trying to wrap my head around it and figure it out, you know what’s going on here? And that ended up putting me into emotional spin where I was feeling angry. I didn’t trust a lot of people. I felt a lack of confidence in myself. You know I was co-dependent because I didn’t really know how to really make it in life. And it grew up with me. And that anger, that bitterness took a root in my heart and it robbed me . You know I had some great life growing up - but it robbed me of a lot of things that I could have experienced a lot differently in life. And that’s what I want to do for you, I want to challenge you to break free. Find forgiveness. Use this key to have a great life.
You know forgiveness is - it’s for you. It’s not for the other person - it’s for you. When I’ve came to the point where I was able to forgive, that gentlemen, that young man at that time in his life – that was when my life took off and exploded. Things started happening to me. I started to create new relationships, find new opportunities and increase my income. My marriage got a whole lot better. There was a lot of things that I had to deal with when it all came down to forgiveness – forgiveness was the answer for me. It was something that released me to having a great life and living my purpose. So forgiveness, it’s for you!
