THE DIFFERENCE ONE LIFE CAN MAKE
DR. FARRAH GRAY
FROM PUBLIC ASSISTANCE TO A MILLIONAIRE BY THE AGE OF 14 AND TRANSITIONING TO A REALLIONAIRE – BECOMING RICH FROM THE INSIDE-OUT.
“I know Farrah Gray and we have discussed his future. His motivation determines what he will do. His attitude determines how well he will succeed at making a difference”
Former President Bill Clinton.
Life could be likened to a movie in which we get on the world stage to play our part within a specific time-frame on the timeline of life.
The more inspiring, captivating, exciting and thrilling the story-lines, the more highly rated and valuable the movie becomes. As it is with all movies; it can be inspiring or it can demeaning; it can be an example or it can be a warning; it can be a tragedy or it can be a comedy.
Whatever the story-line your life movie is, one thing is certain, you are the director of the movie which implies you are absolutely responsible for the direction and the quality of your life.
I introduce to you a real life storyline that eclipses a life from an ordinary birth to an extraordinary accomplishment; from a deprived background to an inspiring frontline; from abject poverty to abundance; from a crime-infested neighborhood to someone who is changing the world, one day at a time and in one lifetime.
At the age of six, the youngster formed the habit of daydreaming; he would imagine what he desired for his family; he would dream of igniting audiences of millions of people with great speeches; he was all about possibilities with no iota of lack or negativity in his mind. The dream dominated his thoughts. The youngster made his imagination to serve him.
If we could only take up the childlike beliefs of one who knows no limits and believes anything – and everything is possible, we would radically elevate our lives and daily maximize our destinies.
Never let the suppressing influence of the environment and the hurt of past experiences erect a stronghold of doubt, fear and unbelief in your mind which only leads to the dungeon of mediocrity and failure.
Break free and stir up the kid in you in regards to the propensity to believe so that the king in you can rise and take the place in the domain of life.
Remember, you are not limited by your background or circumstances; you are only limited by the size of your imagination.
Farrah Gray was raised in the innercity where youngsters do drugs and became gangsters; shooting and killing was the norm.
The place where you live does not have to determine the way you live. Mentally rise above your environment and you will live above and beyond your environment.
Raised by a single mother but with lots of love, discipline and motivation in a poverty-stricken environment; having a mind filled with unlimited possibilities.
“I realize the tremendous power parent’s and guardians have over their children’s legacies simply by the words they choose to speak. Had my family showered me with negative and unaffirming sentiments my life would be drastically different today”.
- Farrah Gray.
How you raise your children determines the emotions that rouses within them. The words you speak on your children frames their inner world which creates their outer world.
What your children observe you do, subconsciously imprints on their minds and inform them how they should act in varied situations. Invariably, your children mirrors your attitude.
