A woman shares how her father raised her spirits with his words 15 years ago when she had lost all hope in life.
Words have a lot of power; they can make or break someone's mindset. Positive affirmations can make someone so inspired that they get the strength to pick up their lives even when the odds are stacked against them. This is exactly what happened with transformation coach Tanya, whose one conversation with her father 15 years ago changed her entire life.
Tanya felt she was down and out and there was nothing she could do to get out of the dark hole she had found herself in. Then, her father came and changed her entire perspective by just making her look at the other side of the coin. Seeing how the right guidance changed her life, Tanya is now looking forward to doing the same for others with her services. Recently, she made a TikTok video explaining the impact of her father's positive words and guidance.
Tanya, who goes by @tanyabeautycoach, started off the video by mentioning how much she owed her father for whatever she achieved in her life. In a moment of retrospection, she felt a lot of gratitude for him that he did not allow her to break down when she was feeling vulnerable. As a coach, she wanted to share the words that helped her pick herself up with everyone else. She was feeling down because of the circumstances in her life. In her opinion, she had not been dealt with good cards in her life and she did not have the privilege of having everything she desired flow to her. She understood that the trajectory of her life needed a lot of work from her side.
Tanya's father encouraged her to work on herself by saying, "Tanya, you were dealt really, really, really sh**ty cards and it sucks. But just because you were dealt bad cards, it doesn't mean that you can't win." This made Tanya understand that just because you are dealt certain cards does not mean that your life will be decided solely on the basis of those cards and their implications. People can bluff and exchange cards so that they can get the outcome they need in the game. Luck and circumstances matter, but so do hard work and passion.
This motivated Tanya to push herself more and not give up. "And ever since then, I was like, all right, I may be unlucky. I may not have it as easy as some people, but I can still win this game," she shared. The coach wanted people to be as impacted by the words as she was during her younger years. Her message is to not give up even if the circumstances around you are screaming that you will not make it. Things can be changed and situations can be transformed if one has belief. She ended on a hopeful note: "To whoever needs to hear this, I hope you felt those words like I did."
The comment section found her message to be beautiful. @wiena_3 appreciated Tanya for relaying her dad's message, writing: "I needed to hear that." @dbe888000 believed in the father's message of not giving up, commenting: "Thank you… I’m still in the game! I came close to folding permanently, but no way I’m letting humans beat me."
