A life changing encounter with a remarkable person occurs not just to special people, but to anyone. Yes, you can have a chance to meet someone who will have much influence in your life and inspire you to fulfil your dreams.  

It is especially true when you dedicate yourself to achieving your dreams.  Often you would have an unexpected encounter, which will lead you to a new world where your hidden potentials will be revealed and blossom.

In my case, it was my high school English teacher who helped me to start my life path.  In class, she praised my language talent.  Being encouraged by her compliments, I started putting more efforts into studying English though it was never my strongest subject.  As a result, my English grades went up significantly.

I then began having a dream of studying abroad though I knew it was unrealistic due to the high cost.  However, one day, my grandfather, who was not supposed to know anything about my dreams, offered support for my English studies in America!   It was unbelievable! Thanks to his help, I was able to gain many valuable experiences during my stay in America.

 From that time till now, I have ended up learning three foreign languages, including English.  My dream in high school became true and has grown much clearer in a vision to use these skills to help people in the world for their spiritual growth.

The second life changing encounter was with my spiritual mentor, who had guided me with much love in my life as a Divine Light minister. She always gave me encouragement and advice in challenging times during my missionary work in foreign countries.

At every turning point in my life, there was always such special person, who guided me to open the door to a new world.

Through such wonderful encounters, I have realized the importance of people with unconditional love close to me at the right time in my life.

If you hang around good people, you will become like them.  On the other hand, if you hang around with bad people, you will also become like them. It is so critical who you hang out with in your life. 

If you want to improve yourself, it is desirable for you to be in company with respectable people of high character. 

Although at first you might feel uncomfortable being around such people, you will gradually blend in with their world and ideas and eventually elevate yourself to their level. 

As the saying goes, “birds of a feather flock together” you are attracting people who are at the same level as you are. So the people around you at this moment are not there by accident but because you attracted them.

If you continue making efforts to polish and push yourself toward your goal, you will find yourself meeting people who will turn your life to a better way.
