I couldn’t handle it.

The pressure of closing the business, being hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt and in the middle of a divorce was overwhelming.

I felt like crawling into a cave.

Hiding.

I was in an ocean of pain.

Then I turned to someone I trusted.

Known all my life.

My brother.

I asked.

What should I do?

It was an answer I didn’t want to hear.

Keep going.

Your kids need you. You need to be strong.

But how do you do that?

I resorted to the 3 things that had worked for me in the past.

Read books that inspired me.

Exercised till I dropped.

Distracted myself by hanging out with fun and successful people.

It worked.

Still does.

So keep going when all seems lost.

Persist.

Pain doesn’t define you.

Your attitude to it does.
