Relevant and inspiring!
"From Failure to Promise: An Uncommon Path to Professoriate" was an inspiring read about Dr. Cleamon Moorer's own path as an underachieving student dropout. Moorer draws on a series of his own failures and accomplishments as high school student dropout, to becoming a tenured track professor at Dominican University's Brennan School of Business (BSB). The chronology of events is easily followed. Dr. C. Moorer was able to use the unyielding inspiration of his parents and their own faith to stop his spiral as a failing student. He became in time, a dedicated student, a problem solving engineer, an effective teacher, a husband, parent and providing son. He was able to gravitate from failure to success by first believing in what he was taught about himself by his father and mother. Over time, he was able to grab hold of and hear the things that God had in store for him personally towards his scholastic, professional and personal challenges. That he was able to maneuver these challenges belies the uncommon path described in this book. Moore uses "Failure to Promise" to record the moment by moment consciousness that he operated in from one success to another, quoting scripture verses along the way. He learned that not every failure is a failure, but that failure can in fact lead to promise and opportunity. And any opportunity, with the right attitude can become a vehicle to unimaginable successes. In this journey, Dr. Moorer draws on the faith that he had to develop to find the realness of God in himself. He was carried by his father's strong faith in the beginning, but in time, Moorer became fully persuaded of his own faith in God. This coming to terms with God in one's life is important for any individual. "From Failure to Promise: An Uncommon Path to Professoriate" helps to inspire others to believe that God is very aware of every step of the way as we travel our own uncommon paths as we arrive at each new beginning.
