The Ancient Greek Roman Emperor and famed orator, Marcus Arelis, once said, “A man’s greatest tragedies usually leads to a man’s greatest successes!”

Have you ever failed miserably at something and thought all was lost? I know I have, and it really hurt…

Have you ever seen your dreams shattered to a million pieces right in front of your eyes and felt helpless to do anything about it? I know I have, and it really, really hurt…

During these painful times in my life I know I felt like a real failure and loser. However, in contrast, as I grow older and grow a bit wiser, I sometimes now think that broken dreams may not be broken dreams at all… Maybe broken dreams are really just dreams deferred. Or maybe they’re just a powerful push toward new dreams and what you’re really supposed to be doing with your life.

Pay attention! This is really POWERFUL! Sometimes not getting your DREAMS gives you your DESTINY!

Are you really supposed to be doing this thing that’s causing you all this misery, or should you be doing something else? Would something else make you happy? Would something else empower you to greatness? Maybe it will!

So whatever is kicking your butt at this moment, go ahead and wipe your tears. I’ll give you a minute; but that’s all. I know this world probably hasn’t been fair to you either. Now… What else could this terrible setback or horrible circumstances in your life mean? What else are you supposed to be doing? And why aren’t you doing it?


Please share how you plan to use this secret of Benefiting From Your Tragedies.


Thanks for your time,
