Through Challenge Comes Success
Why Intentionality is Crucial for an Amicable Divorce
Written by Tami Wollensak, CDLP™
I recently heard someone say that we, as humans, are only willing to endure small amounts of discomfort, but we all want to obtain huge amounts of success. I wish life worked that way. In my own journey, I’ve become more aware of the fact that if I’m being challenged in a big way, I can count on a windfall of positive energy coming soon. I can’t predict exactly when—or how—but I know it’s coming. My divorce was a very dark and trying time in my life, but through all the pain and darkness, I came out better on the other side. I learned so much about myself in a very short span of time.
I took that experience and the lessons I learned to create an impactful and important niche of my mortgage business that helps others who are going through the life transition of divorce. I was able to connect with industry professionals who I may not have sought out or met otherwise. I have also gained some incredible friendships through this leap of faith I took during these last two years as a mortgage professional.
I always say to my divorcing clients how sorry I am that we are meeting under these circumstances, but I advise that they surround themselves with resourceful people who will provide the tools and information they will need to make empowered, informed decisions. Just like I didn’t know at the beginning of my story, they have no idea what might be on the other side. They are likely to learn something about themselves that they didn’t even know was possible. I have found that life is a never-ending process of growing and learning about ourselves in profound ways. Through the darkness, there is light. Through the downswings, there are upswings. Our lives are not linear—which is good, because how boring would that be?
