How Difficult Situations Can Lead To Success

Posted on April 2nd, 2013 by Kimanzi

Today I have the honor of interviewing author and speaker Dixie Gillaspie. She wasn’t always a successful coach, author and speaker, in this interview she actually talks about attempting suicide twice.

She has since come back from that dark place and really helped inspired people to take action. In this interview we hear her story, her dreams and the journey to them. We also hear about her book that releases today and the over $400 and $5000 in prizes/bonuses she is giving away.

She gives some great practical advice that will definitely help you chase your dreams and change your life. Enjoy the video:


Again, check out Dixie’s book and all the free stuff here.

You can get through them

If you have been reading this blog for a while, then you’ve seen that I’ve shared with you many of my own difficult situations and how I overcame them.

Let’s face it, we all go through difficult situations, life is full of them. The difference between the amazing and successful people like Dixie and the one’s who haven’t made it is their response.

How will you respond to a difficult situation? Will you give up or fight? Fight for your dream, fight for what’s important to your life.

When you read books like Dixie’s or so many other good books and great content, you have to learn the lesson but more importantly, you have to apply it.

Whatever it is you’re going through, know that you can get through it and if you do, you can accomplish amazing and inspiring things. If you do maybe one day I’ll be interviewing you 🙂

Have you ever had a difficult situation that lead to success? 



  • Glad you were able to interview Dixie also, it was one of the most popular iTunes podcasts we have had yet. looking forward to her book!

  • Looking forward to hearing this one! Thanks for providing awesome content as always!

  • Great Interview Kimanzi. She said, you gotta have the energy and the desire. That is so true and it speaks volumes to what you both have accomplished. So many people will start off on fire and then die out because its just not a passion or because of fear.

  • Great interview! Gained a lot of great insights from it.

  • Wow, that’s a wild story.
    Difficult situations can transform us into who we need to be to have success – adversity is one of God’s training grounds.

  • We all go through these trying times and situations, one thing I learned is that we have to have blinders on and stay focused on what we want.
