What is One Thing You Learned From Your Failures?
LaTisha's Answer: I learned that, no matter how bad it gets, I can rebuild my life.
In 2010, my life fell apart badly. I mean, crash and burn, "Could this get any worse? Yes it absolutely can" badly. I was depressed and my bank account had negative dollars. My career, my relationship, my finances, my housing situation -- all down the drain.
I had to come to terms with the fact that I identified WHO I was with WHAT I did for a living. That's a recipe for disaster. When I no longer worked in music, I didn't know who the hell I was. I had to deal with that head on.
If I tried to think about the future, I'd have a full-on meltdown. I had to literally take it minute by minute to not be consumed by overwhelm. I was ashamed and embarrassed. I isolated myself and could not bring myself to speak with anyone about just how bad it really was. Finally my mom got it out of me and I had to ask her for money (WHICH I NEVERRRR DO). It was terrible.
I ended up moving back to Texas and rebuilding my life. I got a job as a Career Development Coach and slowly got myself out debt. I started the painful process of forgiving myself, taking responsibility for the state of my life, and healing self-limiting beliefs about my worth.
Now I know that no matter what happens, I am resilient. I am capable. I am enough. My worth is not based on WHAT I do. It is unconditional. It was a very painful period of my life, but it set me on the path I am now and for that I am very thankful.
