Your moment in history
Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.-Booker T. Washington
We are defined not only by who we are, but by what we confront, what we overcome and what we allow to pass us by.
I was raised with this as fact, blunt and true. And I still believe it.
The key to success is identifying the leverage point between your skills and your aspirations. Each generation -- each person -- has different opportunities and challenges before them.
While hardly equal or similar, everyone has the opportunity to step up, to overcome.
Everyone has opportunities. Everyone has challenges.
What will you do with yours?
