Making Mid-Life Sexy | Olga Szakal
Life has a funny way of putting obstacles in our path that seem impossible but end up being the best thing that has ever happened to us. Marcus Aurelius the great Roman Philosopher Emperor wrote, “The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.” A famous parable called “The King and the Boulder” also illustrates this point
In ancient times, a King had a boulder placed on a roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock.
Some of the king’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around it. Many loudly blamed the king for not keeping the roads clear, but none did anything about getting the stone out of the way. Then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. Upon approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road.
After much pushing and straining, he finally succeeded. After the peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note from the king indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway. The peasant learned what many of us never understand.
Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve our condition.
Our guest today Olga Szakal is a living example of this willingness to make obstacles in her way.…well…..her BITCH! Calling her a fighter is an understatement. She grew up in the 1980s Soviet Union specifically Siberia where it’s so cold and desolate in places that some of Stalin’s prison camps didn’t even have walls because no one could survive outside the camp. Siberia has a highway called “Road of Bones” because so many forced laborers from these prison camps died building it that they used their bones in the foundation of the road. How crazy is that? In the Soviet Union, anything money related like profits were prohibited and even ILLEGAL. This did not stop Olga when she was teenager. She sold blue jeans and female products on the Black Market to make money to survive. This is a much different experience than what I had in the 1980’s. Olga had to go to the black market to buy Levis and tampons. I went to the Mall and Target.
She got out of the Soviet Union with a scholarship to an American college. She built an all American life, married with four kids and like many American marriages she went through a painful divorce. Did this stop her? Hell NO! She built a real estate empire that has made her a millionaire. Now she wants to help women Make Mid-Life SEXY. She is the author of “The Mid-Life Crisis Awakening, How To Rise Up and Become The Woman You Were Always Meant To Be”. She is also the co-host of a weekly Mommy Talk Live Show on the brand new Facebook TV Channel. She is an amazing woman with so much wisdom to share!
