Can Your Heart-Set Help You to Overcome Obstacles to Success?
Colli Butler grew up with alcoholic parents. Her mother was married 5 different times.
Her father, who had more marriages than her mom did, left when she was a 2 or 3 years old, and she never saw him again.
As a teenager, she had such a volatile relationship with her mother that she moved out of her home more than 20 times in just 4 years. Colli moved from place to place, constantly seeking a more stable and happy environment.
Her life was hard, to say the least.
However, she was able to overcome these seemingly insurmountable odds and emotionally unstable background. In fact, she eventually grew up to be a highly successful network marketer!
She has also maintained a very happy and healthy marriage.
By the time Colli was ten, she had seen many women whose lives were full of suffering, oftentimes brought upon themselves because of making the wrong choices.
Colli learned from those negative examples, and she vowed never to make the same mistakes.
She built up the spiritual area of her life, which in turn had a positive effect on the rest of her life. She had her heart set on success, and because of this heart-set she was able to overcome all obstacles and achieve greatness in her life.
Everyone has the innate ability to achieve what they most desire, no matter what barriers exist.
When my son was twenty-two years old, he wanted to buy a truck so he could start his own lawn care business.
His Core Desire was to be more independent and self-sufficient, but he needed to buy a truck to be able to do that. His former boss had a great truck, and my son knew that he needed one just like it.
He went to almost every dealership in the Denver area, but to no avail.
Although my son had excellent credit, he did not have enough of a credit history. No dealership would give him financing without a co-signer.
When he asked me to co-sign for the loan, I turned him down. I told him I didn’t believe in making things so easy for children that they were robbed of the chance to stretch and succeed on their own.
I did offer to loan him the money for a down payment if he needed it to be able to secure financing.
So, he made the rounds of the dealerships again, and for the next two weeks every door was slammed in his face.
He was discouraged, but he refused to give up.
Finally, he decided to call his old boss to ask if he knew of any way he could get a truck like his. His boss told him that he had recently purchased a new truck and that the old one was just sitting in his driveway.
He then offered to sell it to my son! Within hours, my son closed the deal and ended up getting the very truck that had inspired him in the first place.
Such is the strength of a heart-set. When your heart is set on something, you don’t give up. You fight, dig, and scratch until you get it.
Sometimes these things require blood, sweat, and tears. But when it is your heart-set, you will always find a way to make it happen and be able to overcome any obstacle that is in your way.
