when I got DIVORCED

when I got DIVORCED

Mark here with a vulnerable story about when I got divorced.

I want to share this with you for a deep reason. One of the most difficult parts of growing your conscious business is when you’re still starting out…and “life” gets in the way.

A painful situation in your life can make you feel it’s impossible to attract clients and grow your business. There’s too much pain to be able to take inspired action.

Which is exactly what happened to me.

Years ago, when I was in the midst of getting divorced – I felt the weight of the world on my shoulder. It was hard to get up early. It felt too heavy to put myself out there and speak. I felt like I had nothing to give – it was all just too much.

When you feel like that – it’s like an elephant sitting on your heart, and you can’t even breathe.

Which is exactly how I felt.

And then I discovered an amazing way to make that elephant feel like a feather:

By focusing on the IMPACT I was meant to have in this world. When you’re in such pain that it’s hard to breathe – that means that you’re also focused on the pain. The secret is to start focusing on your IMPACT. Your CONTRIBUTION. The DIFFERENCE you can make in OTHER PEOPLE’S lives.

When you envision your IMPACT, your body feels differently. Your breathing opens up, your blood rushes and you feel exciting, happy and alive.

Because it’s what you’re here on earth to do. Inspire the Tribe with your comment:

What happens to YOU when you focus on your Big Impact?

  1. This was great.. it looks like my 21 year marriage is headed for divorce…one of the greatest things about mining for gold is that it reconnected me to my impact…interviewing old clients…even though I knew all they said…had heard it before…hearing it again was just what I needed to stoke the fire of what my mission was and how much I have helped people.

    1. I’m so glad this resonated with you Jeanette, blessings to your family…Yes Mining for Gold is so powerful, deeper than we can even imagine, what a gift, keep me posted on how it’s going! Much love.

  2. Mark…thanks for sharing. I too went through a over 20 year divorce. She was tired of being a wife, a mother and added she wouldn’t take care of me if I were sick. At that time I had been a cop for over 20 years. I thought I had experienced it all but that knocked the holy hell out of me. Retired. Went overseas for about 10 years for our DOJ teaching 3rd world cops the benefits of democratic policing. Put my heart into it. Received many compliments from my peers some calling me dynamic and inspiring. Don’t know if I would go that far but I did enjoy it very much. Gave a number of talks at local Rotary clubs upon my return. Had thoughts of becoming a motivational speaker but I just didn’t know how. Now I am 73 years young and feel that my time has come and gone. The Internet is an alternative as I feel I still have a lot to offer. Helping people is what I do best. Anyway I saw an opportunity to say thank you for sharing as I had a similar story and fell victim to the big D also. What a terrible decease.

    1. Thank you for sharing your vulnerability and truth brother. I feel you. It’s never too late, your time has NOT come and gone. You have so much to offer and there are others out there waiting for your medicine. YOUR medicine. As you said yourself, “helping others is what I do best”. Thank you for your public service. I would love to connect more with you. Please stay in touch. Email my team support@bigimpactlive.com to hear how we can support your next steps or visit in person at our monthly Meetups. We’re here for you xoxo.

  3. That is great advice ! What you focus on will expand, so why not focus on what you want to expand. And who you empower you impact, so why not empower folks with true purpose and real positive meaning?

    We are positively impacting the world. Let’s join forces !

    1. Yes Parris, you got it! So glad you resonated with the message. Let’s grow this Tribe and all make a bigger impact.
