These posts are meant to lead you be your most empowered self and help you overcome those things that are holding you back from reaching your goals. Some of this might resonate with you, or not, and I’m not here to judge anyone or their actions, only to give you something to think about.
Have you ever gotten to the point where you could not physically, mentally or emotionally go any lower? That, right there, is rock bottom. It is the absolute lowest you could go. It could be due to a loss in your life, being social ostracized, or even a feeling of complete and utter hopelessness due to financial debilitation. It can be for any number of reasons, but rock bottom is not a death sentence. There is a way out and it includes taking back your power and control.
Our thoughts and doubts can be our own worst enemy in this situation, however, but determination to succeed can empower us to get out of our rock bottom situation to a place of power. It all starts with small goals, small successes and of course, as always, self-care and self-love. Additionally, you need to surround yourself with those who are cheering for your success rather than those who will push you back down.
There is nothing wrong with getting feedback from others, it might actually be helpful, but never take it personally and use it if it serves you and do not if it does not. In order to come out of rock bottom, you also need to find what motivates you. It will inspire you to do better and be better. What is your “why”?
Never lose hope, because anything is possible when you empower yourself to be your best self and do your best FOR YOU. Be kind and gentle with yourself as well. You will have good, successful days, but you will also have bad, demotivating days. Take everything as it comes and take stock of each experience and learn from it. Live your life on your own terms, enjoy it and be your best self for you – this will empower you to go from rock bottom to power.
After my first marriage ended in divorce, I literally hit rock bottom emotionally, financially and mentally. I could have just resigned myself to the failure but instead I made a conscious choice to succeed. To NOT fail, to love again and to life my best life. This determination put me on the path to success. I not only dug myself out of my financial hole, I thrived, I not only opened myself to love, I found it again and was remarried with kids – in my 40s! I took my power back with a vengeance. Did I fall? Of course, I did, multiple times, but each time I learned from it and used it as a step rather than a hole.
WHere to start:
- Set small goals for yourself and celebrate your small successes.
- Always know your “why” because it will help keep you motivated to reach your goals.
- Be kind and gentle with yourself.
Afirmation & Gratitude:
Self-care and self-love are key to keeping your head up when you feel like you are drowning. Your morning affirmations will help set the tone for the day while your evening gratitude will help you find meaning in each experience, good and bad, in your day. It is a daily cycle and it takes time but will help you roll along and reach your intended goals faster.
- Rock bottom is when you hit your lowest point. It could be a physical, mental or emotional experience.
- Rock bottom is not a death sentence; it can actually lead to empowerment, if you are determined to do better and be better.
- You can take back your power by setting small goals for yourself, celebrating your small successes and with self-care and self-love.
- Knowing your “why” will help motivate you to succeed and help you through the rough patches.
- Be kind and gentle with yourself and never lose hope, because anything is possible when you choose to empower yourself to be your best self and do your best FOR YOU.
TRY THIS: Make a plan to climb back out. Setting specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and timely goals will help you do this more effectively. Also, determine what is your “why”. Seek out the help of a professional (financial advisor, life coach, therapist, etc) if necessary.
POST IT NOTE: I will go from rock bottom to power!
