I like starting from nothing.

I love to start from very little.

Rock bottom is a starting place.

I have nothing to lose when I am there.

I can make my own rules.

I can look insane from the outside and not care about what others think of me.

It is one of the most life changing places I have ever been to.

Rock bottom is the real playground of life after loss.

Rock bottom is the arena for change.

Where a lot of giants, leaders, change makers were born.

It is the place in history that battles were fought.

Use your rock bottom to talk to yourself for the first time.

Whisper the truth as you are kneeling there.

Truth is also very clear at rock bottom central.

There is a feeling that I always found hard to articulate, but the word liberation comes to mind when I try to describe how it feels to be there.

In this message I want to help you not be afraid of your rock bottom state – you are actually in a place of power to change your life.

How so?

When you have nothing to lose, when you have nothing to prove, and when you let go you detach from it all.

You start to live from a new vantage point.

This new vantage point has the power to change your life.

Know that rock bottom is not a place where you can stay or want to stay.

It is the final ground, the final frontier before your life starts to change.

A place of recovery from the fall.

A place where the noise of the world is lessened, and you finally get to hear your own truth.

You start to listen to yourself at the rock bottom.

You start to tune out all the other voices from the world above, and slowly tune in to your own sound. This person within knows you the best.

The truth lies there.

Grab onto it, and never let it go.

As you will look back one day rock bottom is becoming the place where your life changed. It is becoming a place where you found your truth.

Never underestimate your powers when you have nothing to lose. (click to tweet)

It is in these moments that you are able to start again.

With love,
