What’s the point in beating yourself up over something that has already happened? If you’ve already contacted Wesley Financial, (Chuck McDowell and our team), then what else is there to be done? Nothing. Once you’ve contacted Wesley Financial, we’ll be able to take over the hard work. That being said, you still may be unable to shake off the guilt.

Shake Off the Guilt

Wesley Financial Group - Hand PaintsOnce you’ve contacted our offices at Wesley Financial, Chuck McDowell and our team will be doing everything in our power to fix your timeshare problem. The only thing we can’t fix is how you feel. You have to do that yourself. Unfortunately, many of our clients beat themselves up over for falling for a timeshare scam. You shouldn’t feel that way at all. If you’re having some problems shaking off the guilt, consider the following article written by Minda Zetlin titled “5 Ways to Help Yourself Get Over a Big Mistake”. We think a few of the ideas Zetlin suggests are great. Zeltin begins, “Do you hate screwing up? Of course–we all do. There’s nothing worse than that sinking feeling that you’ve made a miscalculation, offended someone when you didn’t mean to or poured a lot of money into a useless endeavor. The very worst part is how you feel afterward–ashamed, guilty, and most of all, angry at yourself. If you’re anything like me, it may feel like every mistake you’ve ever made is preserved in your memory for all time. But that isn’t healthy. You have to let go, and you have to do something that’s very difficult for many of us: You have to forgive yourself. Forgiving yourself after a screwup, especially one that has negative consequences, can be a huge emotional challenge. It probably won’t happen overnight. But through the years, I’ve found a few things to say to myself that actually help me get past the worst of the guilt and shame.” (Zetlin, 2015).

Getting Over the Emotional Turmoil

Zetlin deftly hits the nail on the head with the above description. A lot of us beat ourselves up over things that we have no control over, and there is no point in doing that. Zetlin is right when she says that it is very unhealthy. Wesley Financial, Chuck McDowell, and our team want you to shake off any guilt you may be harboring if you fell for timeshare fraudsters. Zetlin gives some great advice that you may want to consider after you’ve contacted Wesley Financial. At Wesley Financial, Chuck McDowell and our entire team understand that you may be beating yourself up over being duped in a timeshare. We all know that isn’t helpful. Let’s take a look at 4 out of Zetlin’s 5 ways that are a great reminder to those who suffer as victims of timeshare fraud.

Zetlin states, “Next time you’re beating yourself up because of a miscalculation or gaffe, try reminding yourself of the following…”

“It wasn’t on purpose.”

If you are the victim of timeshare fraud, you probably didn’t see it coming. Zetlin writes, “What was the thought process that led to your big mistake? Chances are, you misunderstood the circumstances, miscommunicated with someone, or dropped the ball out of inattentiveness or competing priorities…You didn’t set out to create a calamity, you did it by accident. And you have to forgive yourself for that accident because it doesn’t mean you’re a bad person, just a mistaken one.” (Zetlin, 2015). Timeshare fraudsters use several tricks to deceive people. If you fell for one of them, it isn’t your fault. Stop beating yourself up over it.

“I’ve done everything I reasonably can to fix things.”

Wesley Financial Group - Mechanic ShopZetlin’s above suggestion makes a valid point. She continues, “If that isn’t true, then stop reading this column immediately and go finish doing what you can to mitigate your mistake without putting yourself, your company, or anyone else at unnecessary risk. Doing whatever you can to repair the harm you’ve done as quickly as you can is an important step in getting past a mistake. Once you’ve done what you can, whatever that is, then it’s time to declare the mistake officially over, even if you’ll have to continue dealing with the consequences for a while. Time to look to the next thing.” (Minda, 2015). By contacting Wesley Financial, Chuck McDowell and our team can begin fighting for you. Once you’ve contacted us, there is nothing else hard for you to do. We’ll do the heavy lifting.

“If this is the worst mistake I ever make, I’ll be in pretty good shape.”

Zetlin makes another crafty observation. Once you’ve contacted our office, we can do the hard stuff. Zetlin continues, “This is the first thing I say to myself when I realize that I’ve screwed up, and it always makes me feel better. Why? Because–of course–whatever I did wrong won’t be the worst mistake I ever make. Probably not even in the top ten. I’m human. I’m going to goof things up a lot, that’s a given. Expecting ourselves to be infallible can only get us in trouble, but so many of us, myself included, do exactly that.” (Zetlin, 2015). Zetlin makes a great point, if you’ve already contacted Wesley Financial, then the hard work is being taken care of. You just must focus on staying positive.

“I’ll be smarter next time.”

Of course, once you’ve been through the ordeal of timeshare fraud, you won’t fall for it again. Zetlin states, “What I actually say to myself is: “Some days you eat the bear and some days the bear eats you.” That saying, in slightly different forms, has been ascribed to race car drivers and a major league pitcher and equated to “You win some, you lose some.” But here’s what it means to me: There’s always the next time. Next time I’ll see that mistake coming and do something to avoid it. I’ll plan ahead better, or I’ll pay more attention at the moment, or I’ll spend more time thinking things through. I’ll stop and question my own assumptions. I’ll take the time to gather more information. No matter how badly you screw things up, there’s almost always a next time and a new chance to get things right. And if the big mistake you made today helps you do better tomorrow, well then maybe it isn’t so terrible after all.” (Zetlin, 2015). With the help of Wesley Financial, (Chuck McDowell and our entire team), you know that you can rest easy. We’ll prepare you so that you won’t be taken advantage of in the future. We’ll help you take care of any mess that is a result of timeshare fraudsters.
