Do you have a curious nature? Have you ever dreamed about an old flame, a child, a sibling, a parent, a friend or a neighbor and wondered where they are today, or if they’re even still alive? In your mind, what would ensure a successful reunion with that person?
Success is the result of a competitive drive in the pursuit of a dream. Highly successful people in every profession exhibit many of the same personal attributes and character traits that produce winning results. Successful people have willpower and the desire to get something accomplished. They have vision and purpose and aren’t afraid to take risks. They maintain a positive attitude and trust their intuition to overcome the impossible through dogged perseverance. They have a burning desire to succeed, self-discipline, the strength to begin and the courage to continue and they aren’t afraid to work outside their comfort zones. They are doers and not talkers who look ahead and remain focused and passionate about achieving their goals. They’re not anchored to the past and don’t wait for conditions to be perfect before taking action. Extraordinary people are life long learners who make reading part of their daily life. A sure sign of someone extraordinary is the enthusiasm and passion they have for living life and accomplishing their dreams. They are good communicators that aren’t easily influenced by the thoughts and opinions of others because they know what it is they want. They have self-esteem and confidence. They never blame others and make excuses. They live healthy lives, nurture positive relationships and display enthusiasm for accomplishing their goals. Successful people have ambition and a desire to accomplish something.
The recovery of a true self-identity for adoptees and their parents has the potential to increase self-confidence, feelings of being healed, and an enhanced sense of inner peace. The process of searching can be difficult and emotionally heartbreaking when events don’t pan out as expected. There are no guarantees in life—some reunions result in candid discussions, forgiveness, openness, joy, and nurturing friendships, while others don’t. To improve the chance of a successful reunion, individuals hoping to reconnect with the lost should emulate the characteristics of successful people to help them stay centered, flexible and more in control, as well as tolerate conflict, stay focused and achieve their dreams. I admire successful people worldwide who provide value to others and sympathize with those seeking friendships and authenticity through reunions.
