I got a heartbreaking message from a Flipped Lifestyle listener recently.
I asked this question: What do you want to change about your life in the next 12 months, so you can double your happiness?
He replied with this:
“I want to restore my marriage by being 100% present and honest when I’m around my wife and kids. Sell our 120k house and downsize to 40-45k house so I can afford 61k in student loan repayments (combined) that have to be paid no matter what after grace period expires in late summer for my wife and I. Not working my stressful job anymore and working from my home office full time in my own coaching/consulting/freelancing business. Have freedom to take my kids to school, etc and share more of my time with them. I can’t stand working for the man anymore. I die a little more every day. I am in the Pit and can hardly see the light above. Most days I go to bed angry and most mornings I wake up sad.”
This message left me in tears, because I’ve been there.
I remember being stuck in the pit.
You know what I mean.
That place where you are paralyzed.
That place you lay in bed looking up at the ceiling.
That place you get when you feel hopeless and alone.
I remember being at work and hating my job.
I remember despising my boss and dealing with negative people all day at work.
I remember going to bed tired and angry because life had not turned out like I wanted; stressed from parenting, and worrying about money.
And I remember waking up sad because I had to do the same dang thing all over again.
It’s an awful feeling being stuck in the pit, right?
But realize this fact: there is ALWAYS a way out of the pit.
For us, the way out of the pit was online business.
That was the ladder that helped us climb out of our pit.
We had to build that ladder rung by rung, but eventually we climbed out!
Now we love our work.
We get to help people change their lives every day, and are our own bosses.
Most nights we go to bed stress free and happy, not tired and angry.
We have time to work on our marriage, and be present with our kids.
And most mornings we wake up happy, with purpose for our family, for our mission, and our Flip Your Life Community.
Nobody’s life is perfect, but you CAN live most days happy and content.
We climbed out, and we have seen hundreds of other people climb out too.
If we can…and they can…YOU can.
I don’t know what your solution is going to be, or what struggles you are dealing with.
But I do know if you spend most days going to bed angry, and waking up sad, then you must find your ladder out of your pit!
We would love to help you climb out, and believe online business is the best solution to change your life.
But mostly we just want you TO change your life.
Even if it’s not with us.
Find someone, anyone, that has been to where you want to go, figure out how they got there, and do that!
Find SOMEONE that can teach the one thing that you need to do to change the trajectory you are on in life.
Do SOMETHING different. Anything.
Believe, and then start climbing.
Because Life is too short to end most of your days angry, and wake up sad.
And it 100% does NOT have to be that way.
