An opportunity does not always appear as we would like it to, in fact, very often, it is disguised and difficult to conceive as a possibility for improvement, as the response to our prayer, as the way to reach new horizons or as the beginning of a new exciting chapter. Opportunities may be scary, annoying and therefore easy to let slip. And yet, every single one of us is looking for opportunities to grow. Should we just Jump at the opportunity? This is a motivational article aiming at encouraging you to be on the lookout for opportunities that come your way.

From Nothing to Becoming a Successful Entrepreneur
When I look back, I sometimes have to pinch myself. My current life seems so unreal and yet, everything that is happening now is real. I went From Nothing to Becoming a Successful Entrepreneur. I went from being a teenage mum with nothing to fall back on but my education and my strong faith in a better future for myself and my child. It has been a roller coaster ride. Today, God raised me up and blessed me with a family, a wonderful husband, two other children, my first born is now doing her second year in one of the best universities of South Africa and He gave me the strength to resign from my full-time job and start my own company. It has not been an easy road. From Gabon, my country of origin, where French is the official language, to South Africa where English is one of the official languages, from the bottom to the top, here I am, against all odds. From Nothing to Becoming a Successful Entrepreneur, here I am with a thirst for more, with a thirst to inspire, with a thirst to empower, with a thirst to live a fulfilling life and to encourage others to do the same. This post aims at encouraging people who are going through a rough path. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
Embrace Your Greatness. Affirm Yourself. Live your life to the fullest. Face every challenge head-on. Mireille Toulekima, our inspirational person of the month, a successful engineer, published author, mentor and so much more, embodies all those aspects and shares with us her exciting, inspiring and motivating journey. I met this incredible woman at a Les Brown event my husband and I attended a few years ago. What a refreshing and striking encounter! We immediately clicked! What made this encounter even more special was the fact that we were from the same country.. Gabon. It is a small country with a very small population. We really thought that we would be the only Gabonese citizens in the audience, until she introduced herself : ” My name is Mireille Toulekima, I am from Gabon and I am very excited to attend this event”. Despite the distance, our relationship is growing stronger. Mireille is an extraordinary woman, wife, mother, mentor, …you name it… she bubbles with energy and definitely knows her purpose in life. She agreed to be interviewed and I really hope you get inspired to unleash your true potential. Mireille Toulekima invites you to Embrace Your Greatness.
