I had the distinct honor of meeting Trinidad Hermisa at a professional conference in Rochester, NY. She tells the story of her journey and made it a reality. Inspiring words and personal story that now helps touch millions of people through Niatic’s Pokémon Go game.

I was at my local drugstore returning bottles when I met Samuel. He was with his Godson and had a motorized bike. We got to talking since I recently had my 3-speed bike stolen and Samuel sold second-hand bikes. Here is what he told me about his journey in life.
That is the best description of money I have heard, “Money is the color of blood.” So much pain, sweat, tears and yes, death, has been exchanged for the “the root of all evil.” God bless you Samuel for seeing money for what it is.
When I first met John Paul many months ago, I knew he was homeless and I offered him some money. We talked a short while and he told me he was making efforts to improve his situation, including finding a job.
Then after several months, I asked him why he still hadn’t found a job. His answer made me see him in a brand new light, and maybe it will for you as well.
It is easy to look at any person, and make a snap judgement. Our brains are wired to do so, otherwise we couldn’t survive for very long.
Other times, we need to take a breath to look beyond the surface to see the deeper truth. It’s about giving space and respect to all, so we avoid misjudgments.
Everyday we see challenges, feel pain and isolation at times. And we are no different than anyone else. And when we look around, many times we have more than our feelings lead us to believe. And when we stop for a moment and look at our current situation, we find are not as unfortunate as we think. Remember the old saying: “Count your Blessings.”
It’s the simple things that can give us the most pleasure and lift us up when we feel down. “Just look around.”
