It was November 2016 and I needed a change. I asked the universe*, “Break me down and change my life, challenge me and make me new”. This was my true and pure intention at the time. Here is what happened:
Within the past year I was fired from a job for bringing up concerns of commission fraud and dividend manipulation, broke up with my girlfriend of 6 years who I was living with, destroyed my financial licenses, entered into a large lawsuit in order to protect myself, was being investigated by the SEC, was being investigated by FINRA, faced possible jail time, became homeless for 4 months, went on unemployment, lost all of my savings, destroyed my credit and finally lost my car.
In hindsight would I ask again? Fuck… Yes…
It brought me meditation, motivation, perseverance, peace, reality and purpose. And for that, I am truly grateful 🙏🙌
There is minimal growth without challenge. The challenge may not be what you had in mind but it will always be exactly what you need.

*I use universe or ‘mother’ in order to not use the ‘G’ word. Too often this word is said without any meaning and has become too common place in our society. Even the modern church misuses this word which further distorts and hides its actual meaning. If you say something so often without thinking, it tends to lose its power and significance.
