Everyone experiences problems. Life sometimes seems to consist of little else. But the experience of overcoming serious challenges can be immensely helpful when you meet others who are undergoing similar difficulties. When you emerge from a difficult situation and feel the relief of overcoming serious obstacles, you will be uniquely equipped to share your experience with others. You will truly understand the pain, the fear and the effort required to rise above real problems and your example can inspire and encourage others to rise above their difficulties too. So turn your painful experiences into something positive. Share your triumphs with those who are looking for hope. Set yourself free from the bonds that bind you and use that power to help others set themselves free. Translate your experience into a message of hope and inspiration that can encourage others to be free as well. Then your success will acquire a depth that touches far more than your own life.
