Success is not measured by the position one has reached in life, rather by the obstacles one overcomes while trying to succeed.-Booker T. Washington
Happy August 25! I remember the day as if it were yesterday. On February 25, 2013, my dreams and vision of owning a private practice became reality with the opening of Destination Greatness in Durham, NC. Today, I celebrate 4.5 years as a business owner. Destination Greatness now provides psychotherapy, clinical supervision, psychoeducation, and workshops in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia.
I give the Most High praise for the storms that have elevated me to greater.
This journey has been filled with many adversities and challenges. From the 6-10 hour day trips for meetings with clients to past business dealings with others not committed to my mission, vision, and principles, I am still standing. I give the Most High praise for the storms that have elevated me to greater.
The sacrifices of time, energy, money, and relationships can add up. However, I remind myself that obedience is greater than sacrifice. I will forever remain committed, obedient, and faithful to the revelations of the Most High.
To all whom have taken this journey with me, Thank You! As I approach the 5th year Anniversary on February 25, I am more focused than ever on the next level of Greatness.
Please save the date of February 25 to join me in Atlanta, GA for a celebration of greatness. Details for sponsors, speakers, and guests will be released in the coming months.
