Shocking, but I actually did not wake up one day successful. It actually took some years and tears and you know what? It is still in process! I still have more goals set and so success does not stop once I achieve something I move on to the next goal and I keep climbing. While in pursuit I am either pushing myself to grow one day at a time, one task at a time or I am sharing my knowledge to support someone else to get there, to achieve their goal and to be successful too.
When did it all begin? Where did I come from? I am one of three children, all girls. I am the middle sister. My older sister has been a role model to me in many ways. Then when my little sister came along I felt the same kind of “older sibling responsibility” to be a model of good behavior and things. I grew up under the care of my grandmother who believed that I could do anything. Then after my grandmother passed my mother supported me in the same manner and would never take my bad days as an excuse. She has always pushed me and is very protective. Then I have my friends and family, without their love and support I would not have made it this far.
Life handed me some tough stuff along the way, but with the love and support of family and friends I grew some tough skin. There is one main ingredient though that I have not let loose and that is the unconditional love from God. With life’s lessons or as I describe in my book Defining Moments: Finding God in the Midst of it All (available April 23rd, 2016) are the God given moments that shape us into who we are and are to become for the glory of His kingdom. These moments can be some down and dirty tough times, but God will raise you up to be a person of strength in your struggle. Let that be your battlefield for the victory is yours!
I have “lost” on many accounts but I share my testimony with you in Defining Moments: Finding God in the Midst of it All because I gained so much insight for how to deal with the problems of today and yesterday by using the word of God to pull up and stand because hard work does pay off! Prayer does work! Standing firm in God’s word gives you unspeakable favor! I am successful at being victorious because my family and friends believe in me, God believes in me, but most importantly I BELIEVE IN MYSELF!
