blog overcoming mediocrity available now hard copyWe all want to live a fulfilling life, but the first step is finding out what drives you! Once we know what makes us come alive, we can truly start pursuing our dreams. 

I am honored to share the story of discovering my passion in Overcoming Mediocrity, a book that came out earlier this year. Overcoming Mediocrity is a collection of stories from influential women who have overcome great odds to create their own lives of significance. 

The book is designed to inspire you to find what brings you life and help you step into a life driven by your passion. Sometimes the road to living a fulfilling life is straightforward, but more often than not it is filled with bumps and turns along the way.

My story begins as a child when my family struggled with insulin issues. The series of events that followed eventually led me to find my passion in life. 

Here is a little excerpt from my story…

“Growing up my grandpa was one of my favorite people. He was quite the jokester and was always trying to pull a fast one on me. My family went to his house on weekends, and he always made me feel like the most special girl in the world (other than my sister who I’d like to think was a close second). 

One evening, as we were preparing dinner my grandfather started acting funny. He was pale and seemed shaky. His words were slurred and didn’t seem to make sense. I didn’t know why my grandpa, who was always so strong, was acting so strange. It was scary!

My grandma ran over to the refrigerator, grabbed the orange juice, and poured him a cup. A few minutes later, grandpa was back to his normal self. 

“What happened?” I asked. I knew my grandpa was a type one diabetic, but I had never known what that meant.”

From here the universe led me to discover my passion. I hope you’ll enjoy reading the rest of my story, but even more than that, I hope you’ll let our stories inspire you to find your passion and live your best life!
