From Vision to Victory!
The journey begins with knowing what you want, your vision, and then confidently taking steps toward achieving it. It can be exciting or worrisome whether it’s a business or your personal life. Focusing on creating a vision is challenging, there are so many interesting distractions available. But “biting the bullet,” and “hunkering down,” you can get it done.
Jo Condrill Stacked the Deck with Immigration Lawyers, an International Affairs Consultant, and 12 Immigrants for her new book Immigrants Coming to America
Just released in eBook format on Amazon.com in the Kindle bookstore, Immigrants Coming to America is also available in print from IngramSpark.com and Amazon.com.
There is a “mini-course” on immigration law and many reference links to official sites, nonprofit organizations, and special interest groups to shore up your knowledge. Jo interviewed two immigration law professors and included frequently asked questions.
Twelve immigrants tell exciting, real-life stories about coming to America and making a new life for themselves. Immigrants from Pakistan, Syria, Germany, Sri Lanka, Norway, Georgia, Vietnam, and Mexico share their challenges and triumphs. One immigrant who spoke no English became able to speak, read, and write English in 6 months by teaching herself! She shares her secret in this book. Beatrice Davis is a very successful businesswoman in Chicago today.
Here are some immigration issues we hear about almost daily. Our two professors responded to questions like, “Is a lawful permanent resident, a “Green Card” holder, permitted to vote?” Answer: “No, and there are other limitations on that status regarding certain jobs.” References in the back of the book lead you to sources where you can find out all you want to know about immigration. It is a large and complex topic.
Paul E. White, an International Affairs Consultant, who served in the U.S. Agency for International Development and Embassy of the United States positions in Asia and Mexico wrote the Foreword to this new book. Paul is also a Distinguished Toastmaster and a Magician.

Self-confidence takes courage. Courage comes with stretching. Failure is a fact of life. Trying to avoid failure leads us to thoughts like “I’m just not good enough.” So we stop trying. We forget about self-growth, personal development. We accept the way things are, the amount of money we make, or the educational level we accomplish.
Whether your current focus is personal development or professional development you can take charge of your life—reinvent yourself if necessary—and achieve whatever you want. I know this is true because it is the story of my life.
Any time is a great time to stop and think of where we have been in life and where we want to go. You will find an excellent tool for doing just that with a lifeline exercise. A discussion of the usefulness of the exercise and guidance in using it are on the lifeline page. This tool will help you look at “the gap” as author Dan Sullivan refers to your past. It is an excellent aid in forming the vision of your future and from there you can begin to set those long term and short term goals.
At the end of the exercise, you will be encouraged to consider what will be your legacy as you leave this world. This point has caused serious consideration by past seminar participants and users of the lifeline.
It’s easy to take the first step in building self-confidence and living a happier life than you may think. Begin with your communication skills. Once you have a starting point, the idea of self-improvement is easier to accept. Almost everyone can improve their verbal communication skills.
