Nothing feels worse than hitting rock bottom. The helplessness and hopelessness can be overwhelming. The good news is that you don’t have to stay there. There is a way out. I know because I plummeted to rock bottom myself, and this article is about how I turned it all around… 

Some of you already know my story… and some of you don’t. 

But to quickly recap, I had a severe drug addiction and all the problems that came with it by the time I was 25 years old. 

Dealers I owed money to almost beat me to death

And even when I finally entered rehab, the counselor told me I was still destined to fail at life…


At the time, all I focused on was not using drugs again and proving that counselor wrong.

So, I traded one harmful addiction for another… 

Stop Denying Your “Obsession” 

The counselor I mentioned earlier said I would always be an addict.

To a degree, he was right. I just had to put my obsessive nature into what it was meant for…


No matter what you define your rock bottom as — addiction, bankruptcy, or personal loss — the only way to rehabilitate your mentality is to set your sights on winning

In my case, I focused on sales. I started having small successes when I actually put my attention on it. Those wins pushed me and led to bigger accomplishments. 

I know it’s easier said than done, but it can be done

Putting all of yourself into something when you are struggling can seem impossible. However, it is the only way out… 

One action followed by another towards your potential will eventually lead to your success story

Whether you are at your rock bottom or just unsatisfied with your life, become obsessed with your greatness

See you at the top,
