Since the 2006 publication of her New York TimesÂ bestseller, Tough Choices, former Hewlett-PackardÂ CEO Carly Fiorina has faced a new round of challenges.Â She ran for the Senate as a Republican inÂ deep-blue California but was unable to unseat theÂ entrenched incumbent. She battled breast cancer,Â wondering if sheâd even survive. Worst of all, sheÂ suffered the devastating loss of a beloved daughter.Â Yet despite these setbacks and tragedies, she remainsÂ undaunted: âIâve come to see lessons and blessings inÂ these passages. I know now that life is not measuredÂ in time. Life is measured in love and positive contributionsÂ and moments of grace.â
Now, Fiorina shares the lessons sheâs learnedÂ from both her difficulties and triumphs. DrawingÂ on her experience as a pioneering business and nonprofitÂ leader, a politically active citizen, and a parent,Â she diagnoses the largest problem facing our countryÂ today: untapped potential. Too often, AmericanÂ men and women are held back by systems that preventÂ them from working and flourishing. Too manyÂ people lose hope for themselves. Too many lack theÂ opportunity to use their gifts and live lives of meaning,Â dignity, and purpose.
In 2014, Fiorina launched the Unlocking PotentialÂ Project, a new grassroots organization, to share a message with those who worry about AmericaâsÂ future: we have all the resources we need to prosper,Â but we donât tap into them. By ignoring conservativeÂ principlesâor failing to articulate those principles inÂ ways that connect with regular peopleâpoliticiansÂ have failed their constituents, abandoning them toÂ the crushing burden of our bloated government.
Fiorina believes that politics, like business, isÂ primarily about people. With warmth and compassion,Â she provides a vision that reaches across theÂ usual barriers of gender, race, income, and partyÂ affiliation to craft a message that appeals to a wideÂ range of Americans: a message of hope. As sheÂ learned facing lifeâs challenges, âHope is a curiouslyÂ strong thing.â Her storyâand her ideasâwill restoreÂ hope to those discouraged about the future.
