I Failed for 7 Straight Years: How I Turned Despair into My Biggest Win

Today, I want to get real with you about the journey to success.

It’s not a sprint; it’s a marathon, filled with highs and lows that test your spirit.

Back when I was just 22, I told myself: “Give it 10 years.”

Now, at 29, I’m only starting to see the good stuff happen.

But let me tell you, it wasn’t easy getting here.

The Real Struggle

For 7 long years, it felt like I was getting nowhere.

Imagine trying so hard and failing every single time.

I started 4 businesses, and all of them failed.

It was tough. Really tough.

There were days I felt so down, wondering if it was all worth it.

I got into debt, climbed out, and then fell right back in.

It was a rollercoaster of feelings – from being scared and worried to sometimes having a little hope.

The obstacle in the path becomes the path.

Those words hit home for me. Each setback wasn’t just a roadblock; it was a part of the journey, shaping me, teaching me.

And one day, something changed.

A year ago, I started a new brand Agency, and it was a success first hitting $2k/month(after 4 months of zero income), $3k, $5k, and $10k/month!

My first real win, followed quickly by more.

After years of struggle and trying, I finally broke my own rat race.

It felt nothing special. Everything was exactly as it was supposed to be. Because the 7-year path prepared me for it.

What I learned from all this is pretty simple but important: Keep going.

Even when it’s hard, even when you feel like giving up, just keep pushing.

Success doesn’t come overnight. It’s like planting a tree – you can’t put the seed in the ground today and expect to see fruit tomorrow.

It’s all about not giving up, even when things look bad.

If you’re working hard but not seeing big wins yet, don’t stop. Trust me, when the wins start coming, it’s going to be worth all the hard work.

But this journey? It’s about more than just work.

It’s about facing your fears, embracing the struggle, and finding strength you didn’t know you had.

It’s about learning from every fall and getting back up, stronger each time.

If you’re feeling stuck or like nothing’s going your way, I’ve been there. But I’m here to tell you, it gets better.

All those hard times and the work you’re putting in? They’re going to pay off.

The struggle is part of the story – your story. And it’s leading you to something great.

Keep your head up and keep moving forward.

Don’t stop. One day you will be amazed how exponential the growth will be.

Keep planting your seeds, tending to them, even when they seem not to grow. Because they will.

And when they do, the harvest will be more bountiful than you could have imagined.

We’re all in this together, walking our paths, facing our challenges.

But remember, it’s the journey that shapes us, and it’s the journey that makes the destination so sweet.

Hang strong in there,


Let’s keep moving forward, armed with the knowledge that every step, every challenge, is leading us to where we’re meant to be. Stay strong, stay hopeful, and most importantly, stay on your path. The best is yet to come.
