What I am most passionate about is enhancing the lives of others. From as far back as I can remember, I have been able to find joy and fulfillment at the thought of making the world a better place and springing into action by making the first move within my own small community circle. Whether it is by simply putting a smile on someone’s face with a joke, or lightening a tense moment with a hug or a few words of encouragement, motivating others has been my passion for decades. 

As a child, I remember the moment I stole the show as the center of attention; they were all about the happy responses I could draw from others. The gift of excitement about life and a personality that inspires those I encounter ultimately became my purpose. I truly believe that if the creator blessed me with a gift to shine a bright light to take away someone’s darkness, then therein lies my purpose in the world. The simple gift of putting a smile on someone’s face when they are having a challenging day warms my heart. 

Today, as an adult, clinical social worker, mentor, motivator, college success coach, goal coach, and author of several journals and booklets on Amazon (Titles: Coping Like A Boss, Get Ready-Get Set-Goal and The Chronicles of A Warrior Mom … By Camille Turner-Bragdon), I am still passionate about my mission to touch lives, change lives for the better and uplift the human spirit. My natural desire to encourage resilience and maintain hope remains the center of my passion. I truly believe that turning challenges into new chances and stumbling blocks into stepping stones is one of the best practices for positive living. I am passionate about positivity, optimism, and maintaining a growth mindset. Sharing my passion with others and searching for positive strategies for living their “best life” journey is an extra plus, and I am grateful for the skill to do so.

For this reason, I wanted to turn my passion into my business. . . “The R.I.S.E. Motivation Station, L.L.C.,” (R.I.S.E. = Road to Inspiration and Self-Empowerment). The R.I.S.E. Motivation Station is simply the “go-to” place for inspiration, motivation, encouragement, self-empowerment, and self-help. R.I.S.E. seeks to provide tools that promote personal growth and development. The purpose is to inspire people to become more intentional about experiencing their best lives and living up to their full potential by working from the inside out. People gain personal fulfillment through proper planning and taking conscious actions to pursue goals and achieve dreams. If we each obtain personal fulfillment, it becomes a group effort to enhance our lives on a personal level which spills over into the success and joy of our friends, families, and communities.

I hope that others are inspired by my passion and enjoy reading my motivational content to gain strength and encouragement to grow and pursue personal development. It is in our nature (human nature) to desire to feel good about ourselves and our lives. Having a positive sense of self and the world around us gives us hope and the strength to push through adversity and move above and beyond daily challenges and temporary setbacks. When we realize our own power and capabilities, we gain confidence in our internal strength and strive to reach our full potential in life. 

I am fueled by my passion for providing uplifting words that encourage people to flourish. I believe in the power of words and the results that can follow. Sometimes, a word of encouragement may provide the mental boost that a person needs to get through the day. I view inspirational words as blessings that have the power to manifest. Through my passion for positivity and my love for encouraging the human spirit, I will continue to speak what I seek until I see what I have said!
