Success Stories

How many of you are the believe it when you see it types? Great, I am too. Because of this I know that success stories encourage and motivate people. If you are like me, you want to see someone else doing what you would like to do. For me, seeing it is believing it. If she can do it, I can too. If he can do it, I know I can.

Let me tell you some of the things that I have done to let you know what I'm talking about.

Success Story
 I got pregnant at 15, but I still graduated from high school on time. In fact, I went to junior college while in high school. I also got accepted and graduated from college on time. (four years) On top of that, I got pregnant again my senior year of undergraduate school, and I still graduated on time. Now...I'm three classes away from finishing my masters degree. Oh, I didn't mention the third child that I got pregnant with in graduate school. The moral of the story is that having children cannot stop you from finishing school. If you have the drive and determination, you can do it. I did and I know that you can too.

What others perceived as the beginning of failure was actually the beginning of my success story. When I got pregnant at 15 people said I would rely on the system the rest of my life. They said my life was ruined. I guess they were wrong. I could say so much more about other areas of my life, but I will have to save some of it for my book. What did they say about you?

What's your success story? I'm organizing my first book, Just Believe: There's More in You. I would love to share your success story if you will let me. If you would rather e-mail me your success story, my e-mail address is
