Without these opportunities, we can’t succeed personally or professionally,” said Dr. Carson. “I faced a lot of challenges throughout my journey, such as hearing deficiency for the first four years of my life, severe asthma as a child, sexual abuse as a child, losing seven members by the time I was 25, paternal abandonment, heartache, being bullied by a classmate, broken cracks in the household, lost my high school friends to suicide and a brain aneurysm, one of my male friends from childhood life spiraled after recreational drug use,  being teased by extended family, neglect from a teacher while in grammar school, personal biases from educators because I challenged their intellect, grown women gossiping about me for no apparent reason, a near fatal car accident in February 2023, and lost my dear friend and sister, Alisha “Toya” Owensford to breast cancer in August 2023. But every obstacle I faced strengthened my resilience, which helped me become the lady I am today.”

Here are her suggestions:

Don’t be afraid to change your priorities to match your opportunities.

Keep God first, let Him orchestrate the events in your life always and have F.A.I.T.H (Forwarding All Issues to Heaven).

P.R.E.S.S.U.R.E (Persistently Reshaping, Every Struggle Shapes Unstoppable Resilience and Endurance).

When you begin to understand your purpose in life, opportunities will knock at your door unexpectedly.

Embrace and accept failure. I have the perfect acronym for F.A.I.L (Fearless Attempt in Learning).

Diligence Outweighs Mediocrity (D.O.M)- Consistent Effort & Hard work = Excellence.

We are not immune to life challenges; it takes a long time to achieve success, but how you handle it determines the outcome of your life.

An inspirational vision is not a pipe dream; give it a chance to mature and reveal its true potential.
