In addition to the book, I’ve had so many things fall into place for me in the past year or so.
I’ve had the opportunity to travel to all sorts of different countries
- and so on and so forth
I recently became an Ambassador with the Global Orphan Project.
And there are several new opportunities cropping up for me these days.
So when my friend, Tara, asked how on earth I’m getting all these opportunities, I should’ve had a good answer
but I didn’t.
Instead, I mumbled something about how I don’t make decisions based on fear and that’s what is helping me.
Now, while that’s true, it is far from the whole truth.
After a lot of thought, the truth finally dawned on me that my unfair advantage is actually my mom.
I’ve talked about her before on this blog
And when you buy my book, you’ll find a place where I mention her in one of the stories.
Yet, I can’t even begin to explain the type of mother that I have
I’ve watched my mom from when I was a kid.
I worked in her company as a Manager from when I was a teenager.
And i can tell you that I have never seen my mom not take action on something she wanted because of fear
I have never seen my mom disqualify herself from doing something because other people were more qualified.
I have never seen my mom talk down on herself or feel inadequate because somebody else was skinnier, or prettier, or richer than she was.
I’ve never seen my mom want something and not go after it because she’s not sure how it’s going to work out
I’ve never seen my mom back down or cave in to fear.
And I’ve never seen her stop trying.
And here’s the thing about all of that.
