How does a young girl emerge from humble beginnings in a rural, four-room house and an adolescence characterized by abuse and homelessness to become a Major General in the United States Army and an Executive with a leading global professional services company? For Major General Linda L. Singh, it was a series of moments. From choosing forgiveness over resentment, love over fear, discipline over recklessness, and hard work over dependency, Singh takes readers on an inspiring journey of self-discovery, love, and acceptance. With courage, honesty, and passion, she divulges how she learned to understand the value in every choice and experience, armed with unwavering faith and determination. Along the way, Major General Singh acknowledges the multitude of mentors and role-models who assisted her in her transformation from homeless teenager to self-assured leader, wife, and mother – a path that eventually led to her installation as the Commander of the Maryland National Guard. Want to follow her example and rise above your current circumstances? Read Moments of Choice: My Path to Leadership by Major General Linda L. Singh.
Moments of Choice: My Path to Leadership was an interesting well written and inspiring book about a young woman who rose from her troubled beginnings to become a Major General in the US Army. It took me a bit to really get into the book as I don't normally read military focused books, but as I began to realize the book was not really about the army, but about a young girl who rose from homelessness to greatness. I found it inspiring how she truly made something of herself and her story has truly inspired me. I feel like if she can rise so far then what it stopping others from doing the same?
