    Preface

    i believe that every single person, regardless of their back-ground, has the ability to live a life that makes a difference and impacts generations to come. As a matter of fact, none of us should leave this planet until we do just that!

    From the beginning of time there have always been certain individuals who seem to stand out above the rest. not all of them were famousprobably most of them unknown to you and mebut if you lived in their little village, town, or city whenever they were alive, you too would have undoubtedly rec-ognized that there was something special about them.

    in every culture, in every century, and in every country, from the little islands to the bustling metropolis there have always been people who at first glance might be mislabeled as favored, gifted, or even lucky because of their uncanny abil-ity to always have more than enough. some may say, They have the Midas touch, because everything they touch turns to gold.1
