“If you wish to achieve worthwhile things in your personal and career life, you must become a worthwhile person in your own self-development.” Brian Tracy
In my self-development I have had the honor of three hero/mentors in my life:
- Dr. Roger J. Williams a professor from the University of Texas who coined the phrase “Biochemical Individualism” and inspired my Biochemical Typing and nutrition. He worked until the age of 92 and made the study of biochemistry live for me. Dr. Williams passed away from pneumonia at 94 years old while working on his last book.
- Dr. Edward Howell the pioneer of digestive enzymes here in the United States. I was fortunate to have taught enzyme therapy for the enzyme company he founded before his death in 1988 while in his nineties. He inspired me to further the work of Enzyme Therapy.
- Dr. Rita Levi Montalcini who died December 31, 2012 at he age of 103 while serving as president of the European Brain Research Institute she founded in 2002. Rita died just a matter of weeks before her 104th birthday. She earned the Nobel Prize in1986 and the National Medal of Science in 1987 for her work in Nerve Growth Factor (NGF). She has inspired my work on embryo, digestive enzymes and brain connection.
I am so grateful for their personal and career lives, which has continued to inspire mine. Obviously, they taught me that age has nothing to do with life rather it is love and passion. I wish for each of you worthwhile inspirations for your personal self-development.
