Persist, Persevere, Perform!
Work Towards Your Goals With Conviction
As human being, we tend to give up so easily. We give up on our dreams, jobs, relationships, health, etc. because someone says NO to us, or because we have failed once and take it as a sign that it’s not meant to be.
As a young girl in a refugee camp, Clementine had no access to clean water, adequate food, education, etc. The odds of her getting out were very slim. The older she got, the harder things were but she was determined to not only survive what almost a million people didn’t survive but also make an impact.
Clementine made the choice to be persistent, to persevere and to perform with conviction. Not only did she reach her educational goals of getting a masters degree within 1 year with a 3.9 GPA.
“I started facing rejection at a very young age as a refugee. When I was 8 years old and had to fend for myself when my parents disappeared for a period of 2 weeks. We lived in refugee camps where we faced death right in the eyes every day. When I used a “log” as an anchor to swim towards a shirt in Lake Kivu and finally realize it was actually a dead body of a fellow Rwandan, I felt like life was not worth living. When I got to the USA and was bullied every day in high school for being “different” I would want to quit going to school. In my adult life, I lost a daughter when I was 27 weeks pregnant. This was my breaking point but giving up was not a choice for me.”
This talk will give the audience strategies to overcome obstacles and leave them feeling resilient, renewed and ready to fight to WIN in their businesses, relationships, health, etc.
