LIFE IN PROGRESS: Winning Where it Matters
Our decisions are informed by what we believe, I have learned. What we believe about ourselves and about the world around us determine many of the outcomes we experience in life. My journey through life, which started out in West Africa and continues in North America, is a Hero’s Journey of sorts. From my bright-eyed teenage days, through my ambitious young adult phase, and into my perceptive adult years, I’ve often had a different perspective on many things.
I’ve asked questions, learned lessons, tested opinions, and sought facts. In the process, I discovered the critical role that decisions play in realizing my purpose, facing my fears, nurturing thriving relationships, wrestling with matters of faith, and pursuing happiness. Winning where it matters is not easy, but it is possible. A life on your own terms is possible. Here, I offer some ideas for your consideration.
