Businesswoman Natasha Morgan has faced daunting challenges in her life – but she has overcome them all and decided to share her inspiring experience in a new book titled An Unbreakable Woman.
Born into poverty, Natasha was the second eldest child of a teenage mother and faced physical and sexual abuse from a young age. At just 17 years old, she was already a single mother begging for milk for her child and later became a single mother of three after her divorce.
As if this wasn’t enough, Natasha has also had to fight her health after being diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome later in life, diseases that are incurable and lifelong. She nearly lost her life at one point when a virus sent her into organ failure and septic shock. Doctors labelled her recovery a miracle.
All these struggles pushed Natasha into deep depression and she even contemplated taking her own life as a way to escape everything life had thrown at her. However, her perseverance and her faith in God gave her the strength to get up yet again and focus on finding and fulfilling her purpose.
For many years Natasha lived with the shame and guilt of her abuse, feeling worthless and like she was damaged goods. With time, however, she realised that the abuse and hardships she had endured was not her fault and was not an indication of her worth.
Natasha Morgan’s ‘An Unbreakable Woman’ motto
This understanding has led to the motto of her book: “Your condition is not your conclusion.” Natasha uses this as a way to remind herself of how far she has come, and that all the hardships she has faced will shape her but never defeat her.
Natasha also turned to religion as a way to deal with her life’s challenges. This was easier because she had grown up in a religious household and attended Sunday school from age four. With time, her relationship with God has grown stronger.
“I learned that prayer is a conversation between myself and God, and that I can speak to Him about anything that is on my heart,” Natasha explains.
Today, thanks to her amazing willpower and strength, Natasha is considered a fearless and passionate woman in the business world. She is a successful entrepreneur who started an extraordinarily successful air conditioning company, making her mark in a male dominated industry. She is also married to her best friend and has four children and three grandchildren. She is also the owner of http://www.potentair.co.za/.
From poverty to business success
In her book An Unbreakable Woman, Natasha Morgan details her journey from living in poverty in a two bedroomed house with nine people to the successful businesswoman she is today. She describes her journey as one of hope and reflection, leaving you believing that there are better days ahead despite the challenges thrown your way.
The inspirational and strong woman wants people reading her book to know that they must never accept defeat and never accept less than what they deserve. She also wants people to seek their purpose in life and how they can fulfil it as she has done.
In a country where one in five girls experience sexual abuse, one in three children experience physical abuse, and one in six witness abuse, Natasha could have become one of the unfortunate statistics in South Africa.
Instead, her strength, perseverance, tenacity, and belief in God helped her get up after every hurdle thrown at her and ended up with her becoming a pillar of strength and a beacon of hope to many.
Her book has received rave reviews from readers from all walks of life, being described as an “inspirational masterpiece” by one reader. Another reader would recommend the book to all men so that they can understand the pain and consequences women suffer as a result of their actions.
Looking to the future
Natasha is continuing to add to her amazing story and is passionate about empowering others. She is currently pursuing her certification as a Life Coach, and despite living with physical challenges due to a medical condition remains steadfast and fully dependent on God to get her through every day.
She continues to pursue a life of impact and purpose and has recently transitioned into a new career as an Inspirational Speaker, as she is committed to living out her personal mantra – “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe – it can achieve!”
