Most people think to receive a Global award, they need to have high education, connections or accomplish something that has yet to be undertaken. That might be true to a certain extent, and it is understandable why some people think that way.
Earning a global award is an achievement that requires the highest level of excellence. It is a humbling and rewarding experience; not everyone can reach it easily. However, with the right mindset and direction, anyone can achieve it.
The question is, what actions must you take to earn a global award?
In this article, I am going to share with you HOW and WHY the international arena recognized my work and WHAT steps I took that led me to receive not one but two Global Awards-The Inspirational Influencer (Global Impact) Award from the “International Association of Women” and the (Global Woman Peace Ambassador) Award from the “Women’s Federation For World Peace” International within one week.
Before I share with you the HOW, WHY and WHAT steps I took that helped me receive the two awards; please let me share some of my background and achievements so you can see the whole picture.
I was born and based in Lebanon. Growing up, I had to deal with a learning disability, today, we know as dyslexia. I was held back at school year after year. I was 12 years old when the 1975 Lebanese Civil War began; I lost my favorite brother Robert in front of my eyes to a bomb, and that was the beginning of my difficult and long journey.
We became homeless, and I was separated from my family for several months. However, we were lucky to get back together in a new community under one roof. Due to my severe dyslexia and the war, I was forced to leave school in the 4th grade and was persuaded to marry at 14. I became a mother at 15 and a single mom at 17 and lived every day fearing that I would lose my daughter. Living in the war for 13 years, I learned to see the light through darkness.
In 1988, I got the opportunity to come to the United States, where we could have a better life. With only $200 in my pocket and a 10-year-old daughter to raise, I had no skills and didn’t speak English. Everyone told me, “Go back; there is no hope for you here.” But I challenged myself and stayed to fulfill my inner destiny.
Despite the odds, I became an Author, Keynote Speaker, TV Host, Producer, Director, Life Coach. I didn’t stop there. Several years later, I created a unique online platform-EmpoweringHumanityTV.com, including the EH Magazine, to help elevate humanity’s consciousness Worldwide through education, inspiration, and transformation.
Today, I am living my true purpose, CARRYING that 12-year-old girl’s message to humanity. I’m bringing awareness to what happens to the millions of innocent children and mothers affected by the horrific tragedies of war and telling their stories through her eyes.
I am also helping by donating 100% of my net profits from the “Tears of Hope” book and anthem to children affected by war. This is my way of paying it forward with no expectations. Yet, God/universe rewarded me beyond my wildest dreams by giving me these two special awards.
SO HOW, WHY, and WHAT steps did I take to receive such honorable awards?
HOW? I DID IT BY:
- Serving others with Love, Integrity, and Compassion.
- Clearly understanding the POWER of helping others with zero expectations.
- And by learning to let go of the people who take advantage of others.
WHY? I DID IT BECAUSE?
- I understand the PAIN of living in the war with no hope or opportunities.
- I am one of the luckiest women on earth to live in the best country in the world where someone like me, who has only a fourth-grade education, has an opportunity to become the best I can be.
- And because I truly believe that God saved my life many times and brought me to the United States for a good reason.
WHAT STEPS DID I TAKE?
- I opened my heart but stayed alert and allowed God/universe to work through me.
- Anything I create, I developed it with the INTENTION of helping humanity and
I understood that hard work is essential but more is needed.
- Building a good reputation and solid relationships was essential, followed by perseverance, commitment, and dedication to excellence.
As I mentioned earlier, earning a global award is an achievement that requires the highest level of excellence, and it takes work to get it. But with the right mindset and direction, anyone can achieve it.
It is vital to remember HOW, WHY and WHAT steps you need to take to receive such an honorable global or any award. However, to receive such an accolade, it’s important to continually strive for excellence in any field you choose – academia, the workplace, or your business.
With focus, determination, and dedication, you can strive to reach your goal of earning a global award. The rewards that come with the recognition are invaluable and will open tremendous new opportunities. Stay committed to your goals, and never give up, no matter how hard it gets. Eventually, all your efforts will be rewarded and celebrated worldwide!
So, take the time to build strong relationships, hone your communication skills, maintain a good reputation, and pursue persistence and integrity. Then watch.
