Rejection most times is the REDIRECTION we need to unlock our truest potential. Life puts us in some uncomfortable and unexpected situations despite our efforts and plans. So, how do we look at failures as opportunities? You'll hear from guests about how navigated the unknown and turned disappointments into dreams? Let's brace, take cues, apply the right mindset and attitude then embrace all that comes.
002 Toni-Ann Lalor
If go-getter was a person it would be Toni-Ann Lalor! From being uprooted from Portmore and moving to Manchester, she learns to farm to fuel her dream of becoming an actress. Her dreams are crushed but life takes her to Japan and the 2019 Miss Universe Jamaica pageant. She even became a recipient of the Prime Minister's Youth Award for Excellence in Youth Development. Toni-Ann embraced all new opportunities but ultimately returned to farming where she now operates her own farm.
001 Dr. Stevens Bonhomme
From Haiti to the USA, from speaking Haitian Creole and French exclusively to being a self-taught English speaker, from packing boxes in a warehouse to becoming a Client Success Manager at Microsoft, Dr. Stevens Bonhomme shows us how it pays to believe in oneself, stay the course, set goals and timelines and aim higher even when you are already at the top!
INTRO Redirection with Terri-Karelle
Welcome to my podcast.It was inspired by my own story of having graduated as a Dr in Veterinary Med (from Cuba), dealing with accreditation issues at home, changing course, navigating unfamiliar territory and charting a new path. It came with disappointments and rejection but they led to places I never imagined or dreamt of. Essentially, the redirection is what I needed to truly unlock who I am today. Presently, lots of people struggle with dealing with life’s uncertainties, identifying some losses as wins all while not labelling themselves as total losers or failures.My guests will be from a wide cross- section- young, old and in between; male and female; students and professionals; those between jobs, careers and traversing other unexpected experiences.
