Sometimes life’s greatest achievements occur, with a breakthrough moments before giving up.

One example of a breakthrough moment takes place when parents construct toys the night before Christmas only to complete them just before the children wake up.

Another incident was the mother who baked a birthday cake from scratch but forgot the candles. Her breakthrough moment came when she was frantically searching and passed the dinner table to see the dinner candles, and she quickly thought of halving one candle to celebrate her child’s second birthday.

These examples are based on family and friends who I have learned from or witnessed their breakthroughs.

I established my breakthrough moment when I became a Boy Scout and learned to live by the motto “Always be Prepared,” and also read the instructions.
