HOUSTON, May 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- "I'd like for you to think of adversity as simply stepping-stones to live the life of your dreams," asserts Coach Michael Taylor, the author of Adversity is Your Greatest Ally. "They are neither good nor bad, until you choose to label them as such."
His book is based on his life experiences of overcoming being born in the inner city projects of Corpus Christi, Texas to a single mother with six kids who were the poster children for poverty back in the Sixties. It is also based on his ability to overcome being a child-abuse victim and a high school dropout who refused to succumb to a life of mediocrity, who was able to climb the corporate ladder, and become a mid-level manager for a multi-million dollar company at the tender age of 22. But it is also based on his ability to overcome divorce, bankruptcy, foreclosure, and a deep state of depression in which he even contemplated taking his own life.
Now 56, the middle-aged Taylor feels more like a teenager. He lives with a certain vulnerability and authenticity that inspires those he comes in contact with.
"Rest assured that you have everything you need right now to overcome any adversity placed in front of you," asserts Coach Taylor, now a highly successful businessman. "The two questions you must now ask yourself are, 'What do I want?' and 'What am I willing to do to get it?' When you can sufficiently answer these two questions you are ready to begin moving towards your destiny. The problem is, very few people can answer these two simple questions."
His mantra is very empowering:
- Every human being has the capacity to overcome adversity in their lives.
- Every adversity in our lives has a lesson and a gift that can guide us to a life of joy.
- Every human being is endowed with unique gifts and talents that are to be shared with the world to make it a better place.
"Every motivational speaker or spiritual teacher has the same message," concludes Coach Taylor. "There is a part of us that is divine and connected to a power greater than ourselves. What makes my story unique are the adversities I've overcome to rebuild my life and how I share that story with others."
