Have you ever faced hardship in your life? Though hardship comes in many forms, the feelings of suffering, despair, sadness, or oppression are omnipresent. From job loss to illnesses, to divorce or death in the family, when hardship hits, all you want is for the world to stop spinning for a moment while you catch your breath.
But as we all know, the world around you does not stop. And, sometimes, life’s continued movement adds to your anguish:
- Bills keep coming in even when your resources are limited
- Medical bills pile up as you’re struggling to survive
- Legal documents and late fees add to your pain and frustration
For many who are experiencing hardship, taking a helping hand that offers to help pull us through our darkest nights is both a refuge and pivotal moment in our lives.
Hardship Makes You More Empathetic
Research shows that those who have experienced hardship, especially financial hardship, report feelings of elevated compassion and also have elevated biological responses to the suffering of others.
In other words, those who have experienced pain exhibit higher indicators of empathy.
After rebounding from deep pain and suffering, it’s natural to bounce back with a new lease on life. This new perspective compels people to feel profound compassion for others who may be enduring a similar situation.
Maybe that’s why many credit repair specialists who find success in the industry have embraced their own life difficulties and channeled it as leverage to help others overcome their own dark nights. Consider the following stories:
Serge celebrates his Millionaires Club award with his team at LSI Credit Solutions.
2008 was a year that should’ve been most joyous for Serge. He and his wife had just purchased a new home and welcomed a son into the world. But then, Serge’s job in the mortgage industry suffered from the economic crisis, and around the same time, Serge began his battle with third-stage brain cancer.
With determination and strength, Serge survived third-stage brain cancer and went on to build a credit repair business so he could have more control over his professional destiny and help others overcome their own hardships. Every day Serge is grateful for his life and his ability to help others.
Aaron spoke to the 2019 Credit Repair Expo attendees about his journey to becoming a millionaire credit repair business owner.
Aaron Clarke, a recent inductee to the Millionaires Club, is another incredible example of overcoming impossible odds to reach success. After suffering from a 474 credit score, enormous debt, and homelessness, Aaron decided to retake control of his life. Aaron began studying credit law, loopholes within the credit reporting industries, and the ins and outs of credit reporting. Not only did Aaron learn how to improve his own credit, but now he operates a credit repair business dedicated to enhancing the financial lives of those inside his community.
Founder and CEO Daniel Rosen shared his inspiring story of overcoming hardship on stage this year at the Credit Repair Expo.
Even Credit Repair Cloud’s CEO, Daniel Rosen, has had his bout with hardship. At just thirteen years old, Daniel quit school and left home, resulting in years of homelessness. His sole source of income was the change given to him from juggling on street corners. Flash forward to today, and Daniel dedicates his life to helping prospective entrepreneurs start credit repair businesses so more people can impact their communities.
Life-changing experiences happen to many of us. We emerge with a greater understanding of suffering — and gratefulness for overcoming hardship — and we’re more inclined to help others in their times of need. Fueled by our passion for giving back to our surrounding communities, this selfless work can turn into profitable work.
Giving is Good for Your Soul
Folks who understand empathy have unlocked the key to both financial and personal success. In fact, some of the greatest thinkers of all time have attributed life’s happiness to helpfulness.
- “For it is in giving that we receive,” Saint Francis of Assisi
- “The sole meaning of life is to serve humanity,” Leo Tolstoy
- “We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give,” Winston Churchill
- “When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed,” Maya Angelou
Whether you’ve experienced hardship or not, you have a chance to help others achieve comfortable lives. By starting a credit repair business, you are making moves to become someone’s hero during that person’s greatest time of need. By infusing the lives of your credit repair clients with positivity and hope, you provide opportunities for your clients, who have faced hardship, to be an example for others. Your clients become living proof that it’s possible to get control over their lives again, and that’s work you can be proud of.
