I’m Down But Don’t Count Me Out Yet!

I’m Down But Don’t Count Me Out Yet!

I’ve really been hard on myself as far as my life’s accomplishments are concerned. I’ve beat myself up for not reaching the rank of general, for not becoming the top logistics manager in the field, the physical educator that I could have been, and so on. I’ve gone through somewhat of a slump in my life and from the outside things look great but, only if you knew the challenges.

When I review my life, all of those things were what people saw in me. They thought I was going to be a great general, top logistician, or a leader in the physical education field.  Frankly, I’ve enjoyed my passion leading, teaching, and coaching and watching my students flourish all over the country. Now I get to hear the stories of their journey and how I was instrumental in their lives.

My Review

In review of my life, I’ve determined that my failures and shortcomings are all part of my successes.

Today, I continue to do what I enjoy doing. To pass on the blessing of leadership to others in my life. I still have a passion for leading, motivating, and coaching people through what is seen as weaknesses and impossibilities. I’m in the leadership business.

I’ve helped train, develop, and coached many of my peers to become great leaders in the military. Let’s see there’s a general, colonels, FBI agents, senior vice presidents of major distribution corporations in well known global companies and so onVonnie D Wright MBA

Now I’m at the age of retirement and what do I have? I have relationships, friends, lots of stories of successes about others, children, grandchildren, and recently buried my 93-year-old mom, a great brother, and lastly a great wife who is my greatest cheerleader.

I’ve lost several things along the way and frankly, I’m not ready for retirement. I only have a few years before retirement and my wife and I gave up our lives to become primary caretakers for my mother before she passed. My health has failed me because of the third acute asthma attack, and my retirement savings are damaged as a result of all of these situations.

The Bright Side

The bright side of this coin is that I haven’t lost my passion to lead, train, coach, build relationships and develop people and when I finally drew my mark in the sand, I began “doing something for me” which has been and is a great platform to rebuild and continue my purpose in life.

If you are experiencing some of life’s shortcomings, stress, divorced, low self-esteem, and you’ve lost your confidence due to the setbacks, I’d love an opportunity to get to know you and guide you back to peace and happiness. So when I look back at my life, recall and think of the many stories, and have an opportunity to tell people my story I can only say let’s go to work! Join me at “Doing Something For Me” and take the first step in getting to know you.
