In my life I have suffered greatly. A long time ago I made a promise that if I was given the opportunity to live a vibrant, healthy life I would choose to serve others. This Vision is what sustains me in all I do; it flows through me and from me. I work from the end of my life backwards to serve others I may never get to meet.
My Vision many times has been perceived by those around me as a dream. This perception however is incorrect and causes confusion. There is a difference between working to fulfill a dream or being engaged in Vision. Knowing the difference is crucial and is why I do what I do; it can help you achieve incredible things too!
Problems do not deter or weaken me, they excite and inspire me. They create a strength to continue towards the Vision I've been entrusted with. When I encounter trials they create a STRENGTH in me like NOTHING I've ever known. How else can Vision be proven true except to go through the refining fire!
