What inspired you to write this book?
writing The Wynning Way: A Guide to Creating Success Your Way came
after overcoming two major life events: First, I lost my beloved mother to a
myriad of health issues (from stomach cancer to diabetes) much too soon.
Second, I received “my freedom papers” from a six-figure career in advertising
sales. Even though I generated millions of dollars in sales for my company, I
too was a casualty of the great recession. In the midst of my personal storm, I
made a conscious decision to share my journey of tragedy to triumph to inspire
others to continue to live up to their God-given potential no matter what they
might be going through. There is truly light at end of the tunnel. I’m a living
witness of the light!
Excerpt from The Wynning Way: A
Guide to Creating Success Your Way:
5: Visualize Your Victory
of the greatest methods to achieving the life you were designed to live can be
found between your ears! Yes, your ears. Your two beautiful, bright pupils hold
the power to help you accomplish whatever you desire in life. What you see in
your mind is not only manifested in your actions, but also in your thinking and
you desire to be a business owner, it begins with your sight. If you desire to
be a senior vice president at your corporation, it begins with your sight. If
you desire to be a great journalist, it begins with your sight. If you desire
to be a world-renowned opera singer, it begins with your sight. If you desire
to be wealthy, it begins with your sight. You are literally just a glance away
from the life you dream about morning, noon and night.
I know it sounds simple, but what you achieve daily has a positive connection
on what you spend your time and energy focusing on.
