Janet explains that her determination and drive to inspire others really began when she went blind. She says, “Situations didn’t change. Circumstances didn’t change. I was still a mom. I still had to get things done. I could, of course, sit back and say, ‘But I can’t see. How am I going to do this?'” But she didn’t. She used her barrier as an opportunity for greatness. She likens this to a professional setting, saying, “People who are trying to perform in a company or the workplace can say to themselves, ‘Well, I don’t have what it takes. I can’t do it.’ or ‘I have this problem or this obstacle.’ But you have the ability to look beyond the circumstance, beyond the obstacles and say, ‘Wow, I think I can use my creativity, my determination, my tenacity to be able to get it done.’ And what I do with my audience and what I teach in my book as well is to teach them — how do you face a circumstance? Overcome the fear.”
