    Are you a curious person?


    I don’t think I’ve ever met a more multifaceted person as my mom was. She was born in a time (and a place) when young girls were expected to learn how to sew, knit, cook, clean and all the “womanly” chores you can think of. I myself remember helping her when I was very young and never questioned it… It was simply expected. I don’t know many 7 year old girls with big responsibilities at the time…unless they come from a “dysfunctional” home where mom (or dad) are single and everyone needs to help out, no matter how old or young they are…

    When my mom moved from her little town, where she was raised, to the city of Durango in Mexico, her life changed completely and had to hustle and become mom and dad for us. Not only did she have to continue to do all the things she needed to do as a mother, but she now had to provide for us as well. I remember a time she was hired at a grocery store for a while and this helped her sharpened her sales and customer service skills. There wasn’t anything she couldn’t do. She was my hero and role model. I learned to admire my mother for her tenacity and willingness to try anything to provide for us.

    When I first read about the Law of Curiosity from The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth by my mentor John Maxwell, I almost thought to ask him if he was inspired by my mom when he wrote the book! She lived many of these wise principles and universal values that made her a better person and in turned impacted people positively.

    So, today I decided (out of curiosity) to find out if I’m talented enough to sew like my mom did. I visited my friend Selva Lopez, owner of a haute couture store in Chicago. She claims she will know in a matter of weeks how good I’ll be. So, I’ll make sure to keep you posted on my progress.
    I hope to create a clothing line to fund The Elisa Foundation and provide personal development and leadership resources to young girls unable to attend these type of trainings.

    The Law of Curiosity has helped me to uncover my purpose in life. I encourage you to apply it to your life as well and remember, live a life of significance.
