Story Friday – Turning Trouble into Triumph
I love Success Magazine. I first started reading it almost three years ago and have barely missed an issue since. One of the regular writers for the magazine is Mel Robbins. She got started as a life coach and is now doing radio and even hosts A&E’s show Monster-in-Laws. In this month’s issue of the magazine, Mel shares a story of how she was able to turn trouble into triumph.
The story is about how she lost her phone in JFK Airport and had to recover it within a 40 min time frame. Does she do it? Well, of course she does. But go read HOW she did it. It’s a great story. Turning Trouble into Triumph.
Here are some of the incredible lessons I learned from this story.
- Ask for help.
- Know that, when you ask for help, you will receive that which you ask for.
- Empower those you ask for help so they are more willing to help you.
- You never know where the help you need will come from. Don’t assume anything won’t work.
- When you accomplish your goal, show your appreciation.
- Be grateful.
- NEVER GIVE UP!
Are you the kind of person that would have said, “Oh well, nothing I can do now”, or are you more like Mel and willing to give it your all in the time you have to accomplish the task?
Do you have a great story that offers some wonderful opportunitites to learn and grow? I’d love to hear it and possibly feature it on Story Friday. Please submit via my contact form or email.
