  1. Reminds me of the story of Joseph from the bible! Thank God for your tenacity and your mother's undying love! Without either, the world would have missed out on another soul with great potential!

  2. Mother mother Mother O my God. who can pay back mothers and all they do for their children. I love my mother or my Hero so much that i have 100% respect for other mothers and 100% for all Women and Girls. Thanks for your story Joseph and take good care of your Hero.

  3. I love so much about this talk, so much wisdom put so humbly, so simply, with plain humanity (I dont know how to put it better). I dont have much to say but thank you. We all have our problems, I'm sure it'll put many of our problems into perspective. I have a strange problem that I keep trying to help people, improve things and get lots of trouble for doing it. There's a good chance I'll loose yet another job at another school trying to help my students learn while their parents sabotage their education (sounds strange, we humans are). Mmm… thanks again.

  4. It takes great strength to do what u did. It made me think the definition of success is not concrete and resources in hand cannot be taken for granted. wow. u sir are awesome 🙂

  5. I'm proud of you sir! and your mother! and thank you for sharing about your mother and the wonderful things she did, to all of us. This story is an epic.

  6. @dponecrack: I hope your life gets better and you find happines. It cant be easy living with all that resentment.

  7. You are looser or winner no matter where you are. He was a winner in previous life and stayed that way. Quite a few of winning thought pattern he mentions: if it's to be – it's up to me, 3rd Newton law of motion as applied to human relationships, serving others to deal with his own distress, working in his circle of influence, express gratitude for everything you have, and many more.
    Person of such mindset does not stay in prison because we need them outside doing even more good.
    cheers reader!

  8. "Be the leader of your own life!" Thank you, Joseph, for your powerful message. It is impressive what you did when you experienced this nightmare. Not giving up but inspiring others was such a wonderful gift to yourself and to those around you. "Let life come to you like waves running the shore"….ahhhh! I am happy for you that you had such a courageous and strong mother! I am glad you are back – stronger than before. Thanks for being you!

  9. "Experience your life as a strong man, I will do the same as a strong woman" … beautiful talk !

  10. Hey Sef,
