Rock Bottom

Motivational Power Quote

 

Rock Bottom    

“Rock bottom become the solid foundation on which

I rebuilt my life.”

J. K. Rowling, author    

 

 

As I see it . . . . . . .

 

Rock bottom

 

Rock bottom is the bedrock to build your life on.

 

There are times that we may have to reach rock bottom before we can put down our foundation on bedrock.

 

When you build your life’s foundation on bedrock the strength of your foundation will support your success journey and withstand the winds of adversity that you face in your life.

 

Your bedrock can be your values to rebuild your life around or to grow your career.

 

As in San Francisco as well as many older cities, some of the structures of today were built on the ruins yesterday. Debris from the 1911 earthquake was used in part of the city as landfill in part of the city.  And in 1989 San Francisco suffered another earthquake and the buildings that were rebuilt on landfill gave way and collapsed the building built on bedrock withstood the quake.  

 

To put down deep roots and grow your career you may have to reach rock bottom and to rebuild on bedrock.

 

We can decide at any moment in time that we want to enhance our life and career and when you do build your career for the long haul and put your foundation on bedrock.  

 

From rock bottom to great thing is a matter of choice.

While we are in it, we seldom know that we are...In time, we join the ranks of those that started this way when we look back. I believe there are real solid values when one starts anywhere and then journeys onward and upward...The USA encourages all to go as far as they like too

A house being build, needs a solid footing on which to pour the foundation.

In each and every challenge that I have had in my life, I always had to figure out, once I did that, I knew I could begin fixing the problem.

Great things are always built on a solid foundation. Sometimes you have to hit bottom to get to that foundation. You can get there and give up or start the building process. Your choice! Enjoy your day!

Many people hit rock bottom, and successful people have experienced the rock bottom and bounce back.

Good luck and success.

Good luck and success.
