Todays guest has a mantra in life, and one that has been tested time and time again.
“You can’t always control what happens to you, but you can always control how you respond to what happens to you.”
But that's ok, if you have mental strength, but what if you are quote on quote a normal person who gets hit by things in life and allow them to rock them on your heels.
You savour the victim mentality and share the story of hardship and mental strife with friends and colleagues.
You go back to your home and play sad music, until you pull yourself together and go again.
But how do you learn the lessons in life, that can help you realise that like our guests mantra you can really control your life and get the better life that you deserve.
Well over the last ten years, our guest has battled two bouts of chronic illness, a terrible injury that occurred to her daughter, black mold poisoning, financial devastation including the loss of a business and home, and if that isn't bad enough then she also had to deal with post traumatic stress disorder too.
That is at least one whammy every two years.
But instead of letting it stop her progression forward our guest learnt from these life lessons, and developed the "Choose A Better Life" platform and the Amazon best seller "Choose A Better Life: Common sense For Uncommon Living.
So did she always have the mental strength, or did she go through the classic draw the curtains and hide from the world phase?
Or was it an epiphany that made her scream "I can control what happens to me"
Well lets find out, as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the one and only Stephanie Hester.
