Life isn’t always easy, and personal tragedy is something most of us face on some level. Each day we have a choice–to live in fear or live beyond it. No one knows this better than Jennifer Gilbert, founder of the event management company Save the Date and author of the book I Never Promised You a Goodie Bag. After a vicious attack that left her for dead, Gilbert had a choice: She could wallow in self-pity or go on living her life. She chose the latter, and has turned her painful story into one of success.

This interview appears on the SUCCESS Talks Collection, available in the March 2014 edition of SUCCESS magazine.

Favorite quote:

Sometimes your body’s telling you something that you need to listen to—but listen and then act. Because a lot of it is self-created. A lot of it is just your mind telling you what you cannot do.
