Always seek out the seed of triumph in every adversity. Og Mandino, author of The Greatest Salesman in the World
Bettie D. Gonzalez died of a rare cancer at the age of 38 leaving behind six children ages 7-16. On becoming adults, these children established The Bettie D. Gonzalez Foundation of Hope www.bdghope.org whose mission is to “Empower, Serve and Mentor Motherless Daughters”. This year they awarded twelve $1500 scholarships. In addition, they mentor motherless girls starting at age 14 in the greater Dallas and Detroit areas. Their purpose is to create a legacy that motherless girls who are mentored with wisdom, love and empowerment will one day pass on the same to future generations.
Turning their tragedy into a thriving legacy was a way to triumph over their adversity and a beautiful model for us all. Thank you Gonzalez family.
Affirmation: I can be triumphant.
Coaching question: In what way can you turn your tragedy into something positive?
