Nelson Mandela – An Example for the World

Nelson Mandela Smiling

“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” — Nelson Mandela

Been trying to figure out what to say about one of the greatest people to ever walk the earth.  Few lives have accomplished anything as significant within the last 100 years.  His life is comparable to Gandhi.  To have 30 years of your life spent in prison and handle it with the dignity and class with which he did is virtually unheard of.  To take that experience and use it to change a nation, and by virtue the world is a nearly impossible feat to duplicate.  Countless people’s lives have been changed for the better due to this man’s great example of how to handle adversity.  His was a life well lived, a human being that lifted all of us up by the way he chose to live his life.  To learn more about this great man we encourage you to check out the following website:

About the Author

W.J. Vincent II has spent the last 20 years of his life building businesses from start-up to success in fields as varied as Real Estate, Technology, and Environmental Health. In January 2012, Natalia, his wife of 13 years, tragically passed away, her body having given in to her short but dramatic three-month battle with a brain tumor. Her sudden passing left W.J. a widowed father of a 1-year old baby girl and 4-year old boy of his own, along with a 12-year old boy and 15-year old girl he had been helping his mother-in-law to raise due to her battle with multiple sclerosis. Faced with a challenge greater than any he had known, W.J. was able to find strength and inspiration from the Bible. There were many miracles and messages that saw him through the darkest moments of his life.
