Thank you all for your contributions here. I just received my official acceptance and so I'm going to tell my story, and I'll be quasi-brief.
Up until 7 years ago, I was a monster salesman. I owned three businesses and made a ton of money. With 75 employess, I was a "somebody." Then the market crashed and so did my confidence. I became a nobody.There's nothing worse.
I sit at my desk and do nothing and justify it in my head. The excuses are legendary. I've been on drugs for ADD, spent many thousands of dollars on therapy, and posted everything around my office from the Nike swoosh, to pics of things I want, to my kids' photos. Yet, here I sit. Perhaps this is my past resort?

Tim - so glad that you found this resource. I can't help but believe that if you experienced so much success in the past that you will find your way to a positive place again in the future. It may just not look like what you think it should look like. Keep coming back and working toward a positive outcome.

"So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we
have to fear is fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror
which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance." - FDR
Welcome Tim, now that you have received your official acceptance , you can celebrate being a "somebody" again. There are no "nobodies" here! Vic
