On April 30, 2013, our office was honored to have Rachel Oliver share her challenges and struggles with being overweight. With such honesty, passion and emotion, she shared her amazing heartfelt story. It was her strong determination, faith and trust in God that led her to be chosen for the show Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition and to be a public testimony and a positive example and inspiration to millions!
What did we, the audience, get out of her story? Whether we are trying to lose weight or dealing with other health challenges, we are not alone. Also, we all have an amazing story to share and each one of us can encourage and inspire others with our story.
The change starts with us and our “Why” and the stronger the Why, the easier the How. It is our Why that will break us through those barriers that are keeping us from the success we deserve. It is our Why that will pick us up when we feel down. It is our Why that can turn any negative action into a positive reaction.
What is your Why? What are you trying to overcome? What story can you share that will inspire and encourage others?
