Instead of letting life's obstacles bring you down and destroy you, use them. Use your adversities to make you stronger and help you succeed in business, education, or whatever you choose. Use hardship to toughen you.

Telling your story to your customers and associates will undoubtedly get you support, respect, and even success. Don't embellish your tale or beg for pity, but don't be afraid to let people know what you have been through. Being honest about your life's history will inspire trust and understanding in others who may very well have been downrepparttar same road.

Author Barbara Jeanne Fisher is author of the acclaimed love story, "Stolen Moments" and has used her illness to inspire herself and others to succeed. Her web site, found at http://www.angelfire.com/ab6/dlipton/ is a virtual library of health information and inspiration. Barbara can be contacted at mentorsfriend@cros.net.
