  • Is it too late for success in my supposedly ‘golden years’? I’ve fallen 7 times and gotten up 8 times. The action has been repeated over and over. I’m a confident woman, surrounded by those who hate my confidence, and have the control to block my successes. How do I move past those challenges. I guess I’m holding my happiness hostage! Work, Finances, Family.

    Texas struggle.

    • Dorothy,

      It’s definitely not too late. Begin to look at what steps you need to take to in spite of what others are doing. We can’t control them, but we can ourselves. It may require bold and courageous actions. Focus on the first step.

    I recently left my company as an Engineer, I was working in a hostile and very negative office. Leaving also gave me a chance to relocate from NC to Texas to raise my 3 year old son. I am a veteran, ant want to create my a company to past on fro generations.
    I do not have much support from my family nor spouse, so how do I surround myself with positive people and move toward the vision God have placed within my spirit?

    Thanks!
