PARTICIPATE: Share YOUR Career 'Breakthrough' Story (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Have you been laid off only to find something better waiting for you on the other side? Or made a career change that transformed your life? Or changed an aspect of your work environment that made you love your job again?

We've all experienced crises in our lives. But crisis doesn't have to mean failure, loss and powerlessness. According to inspirational speaker and bestselling author Tony Robbins, it is precisely these moments of crisis that propel us to lead richer, fuller lives.

Now we're asking YOU to share your story, through video or text, of a career crisis you were able to break through.

Tony Robbins designed five questions that are very simple, but very useful and for some of you extremely powerful. He hopes answering them will trigger you to remember the path you took to solve your own crisis, and will also allow you to share it with this community.

Post your answers in either written form with a photo, or in a short (1-3 minute) video.

Answer these five questions (write your answer in the caption field):

1) What was your life right before the challenge or crisis hit?

2. What was the crisis you faced? What happened, and when it did, what did you feel and experience?

3. What pulled you through this difficult, unjust or impossible time? What was the trigger or catalyst for change? What is a belief, a strategy, a faith, a person, a tool? What made the change possible?

4. Once you turned the corner mentally or emotionally, what did you do to turn your life around?

5. How is your life better today because you lived through the crisis? How have you transformed? How are you stronger emotionally, physically, spiritually? What gifts do you have to give because of this?
