How Hitting Rock-Bottom Took Away The Fear

How Hitting Rock-Bottom Took Away The Fear

“Something very beautiful happens to people when their world has fallen apart: a humility, a nobility, a higher intelligence emerges at just the point when our knees hit the floor”
—Marianne Williamson

I have a friend who was homeless and was living on the streets with no perspective for months.

He told me that this experience did something to him that changed his life:

It took away his fear.

Because he realized that this was it: the worse thing that could have happened to him and he survived it. Should it ever happen again he would know what to do.

He’s a social worker today, and he goes out on the streets daily to help those who need help desperately.

His rock-bottom experience led him to his purpose.

They say when you hit rock-bottom you cannot go lower. That the only way is up.

It’s when you feel that you’ve reached a point where you can’t go on anymore.

  • You can’t take the cold and indifferent voice of your Ex on the phone anymore.
  • You can’t take the abuse anymore.
  • You can’t take the fact that you’ve become someone else.
  • You can’t take the fact that you are not living the life you’re destined to live.

That’s when rock-bottom becomes a blessing.

A humility, a nobility, a higher intelligence emerges, and you realize that you have to do something to change the status quo.

You know my story.

The night I hit rock-bottom was the start of my new life.

A start that led to a life full of purpose, fulfillment, a perfect match wife, my twin girls and doing what I love to do on a daily basis.

How were the odds of something like that happening before the breakup? Not very high I can tell you …

But it happened AFTER the breakup.

And it also happened to thousands of others just like you over the years as well.

Are YOU ready to make the first step?

If yes, you know where to find me.

Your friend and coach,
Eddie Corbano
