A Grandson Creates Spectacular Success For His Grandmother

Originally published July 11, 2013.

Revised and republished October 31, 2015 after a web host transfer.

Spectacular Success
The unforeseen success other people intentionally create for you
because you intentionally create success for them.

Janice Sparhawk of Stevens Point, Wisconsin doted on her only biological grandchild, Noah Lamaide, and foster parented close to 100 children. After putting a new roof on her house and enduring health problems, Janice fell behind on her mortgage payments. Her house went into foreclosure and the bank scheduled an auction. Noah learned about the foreclosure when he overheard a conversation between his mother and grandmother.

Noah had already collected food for a food bank. He had already raised money on Noah’s Dream Catcher Network for a picnic at a veteran’s nursing home. He had already raised money to send a friend of his to Disney World with her terminally ill mother.

Noah’s success with Noah’s Dream Catcher Network helped him create spectacular success for Janice. Noah knew how to raise money for good causes and immediately used his already established network presence to raise money for his grandmother. Noah sent out a plea for the $10,000 his grandmother needed to keep her home. Days before the scheduled auction, Noah had raised $10,500.

As a doting grandmother, Janice intentionally created success for Noah. In return, Noah intentionally created success for Janice by raising the money the bank needed to cancel the foreclosure.

Any foster child who stays with Janice Sparhawk since her spectacular success also enjoys serendipitous success. Without Noah, they might not have had a foster mother to take them in.

Serendipitous Success
Being in the right place at the right time to just by chance
benefit from someone else’s success

A web host transfer made some posts disappear. Luckily, I copied each post and emailed it to myself. Since I alternated success and failure posts, I will have to remove posts and republish them in success and failure order. I will do this as I have time. Apologies.
