  • The isoBlogs you've done up to this point should have shown you that you can use your past experiences to achieve something greater in life.

    Your life up to now has helped you develop a great deal of strength and compassion.

    Like most of us, you may wonder at times how much strength you have.

    On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 as the highest, how much strength do you believe you have gained as a result of your life's experience?
  • If your answer was lower than 6, then ask yourself what's been in the way?

    If it was above 6, then describe why you chose that answer.
  • You have two options concerning the things in your past that feel overwhelming.

    a) You can choose to feel bad for yourself and admit defeat.

    b) You can choose to wrestle until you discover the answer that leads to something far better.

    Which one do you choose?
  • Remember the opposite strategy? We're talking about Day 3 when we flipped the negative labels, turning them into the opposite, positive descriptions. The exercise should have unveiled qualities about the real you.

    How much do you worry that you aren't really that person with the positive attributes that you wrote about in Day 3?
  • If you're a little worried, it's okay. On any given day, most of us wrestle with this.

    The point is we're wrestling with it until we can accept the truth that those great qualities really define who we are.

    Try this: get a mental image of you living out your best attributes.

    That's the first step in wrestling to overcome the doubt and fear that may mess you up on occasion. It starts with your thoughts.

    Now, with those positives in mind, describe your best day ever in the space provided.
  • a) What jumped out at you about the day?

    b) Who was with you?

    c) How did you feel?

    d) How did your positive qualities make that day special?
  • Let's continue wrestling our thoughts until we defeat our doubts.

    We're going to wrestle for the facts.

    You are not the sum total of those negative qualities or false assumptions that others assigned you or that you started believing.

    Your positive qualities lay the groundwork for the dreams that inspire you and bring you the most joy, freedom and passion in life.

    We're going to wrestle with the facts and what we want out of life until we really feel the difference between the two.

    For a visual, go to the 'demo' tab and watch the scene from "Pursuit of Happyness." Tell us how helpful the clip was when you've finished.
  • Can you relate to what was said initially to the 5-year-old son of Chris Gardner in the clip from "Pursuit of Happyness"? It sucked the joy right out of him.

    Fortunately, his father realized what he'd done and told his son to protect his dreams and fight for what he wanted.

    What's the quality you're fighting to hang onto, the one that fuels your dreams?
  • What are the circumstances that you're dealing with now that make you think you're really the negative label and you're never going to make it?
  • Take a good hard look at those circumstances.

    They're circumstances. They're not you. They're not a person. They're something you're going through and will get through like you always have. They are not you.

    Maybe you made a mistake. That happens.

    Maybe something didn't turn out the way you thought it was going to. We feel you. Been there. Yet this is the part that makes you stronger, smarter, wiser and more creative. This is the part that makes you compassionate.

    Consider that those challenges are going to redeem every bad thing you or anyone else ever thought about you. Why? Because the way you fight for yourself will make you the person we described above.

    You have been entrusted with difficult situations because of your strength and because you have what it takes to overcome adversity and to help others overcome their painful experiences. Nobody can touch that.

    How much are you willing to fight for it?
  • Keep thinking about what motivates you to get through the tough stuff.

    Is it because you know down deep your life embodies the positives you discussed earlier?

    Is it because you know down deep that others will benefit from your experiences?

    No one can take that away from you. It's who you are and always will be. You're only getting stronger, smarter, more creative and more noble.

    Write what you think about that in the space provided.
  • If your confidence is lagging, it is all the more reason to share with us by posting your questions or concerns in the last open box at the bottom of the page. We can show you how to wrestle more effectively given your situation.

    Living in a constant state of fear or feeling overwhelmed is living far below the standard you should have for yourself. You owe yourself love, respect, joy and a sense of stability.

    We can help you find the balance you need to accomplish what you desire.

    Will you trust that we can show you some things you didn't know or understand? That's all we're asking. You don't have to trust us completely. Just trust that we have some answers you may not have thought of yet.

    Will you give us that much? Select your response.
