The Challenge That Equipped Me…

I procrastinated. Year after year I’d say …I’ll do it next year. But then in my early 20s, during a heated conversation about salary increase my boss shouted “you don’t even have a degree!” That hit me like a ton of bricks. I promised myself that I’d never ever let anyone say that to me again. I was not only gonna get a first degree but also a second.

That’s How You Do It

Today, I have two Masters and a Doctorate.

That’s how you do it. I’m one for a challenge to not only achieve but also exceed. So even though at the time I had several diplomas, certifications and had never stopped studying, I fell short of that industry’s ultimate standard. I limited myself and did not go after the best.

My parents never thought of …nor encouraged me to get a degree. They never had it themselves. What’s more, while I studied those years, my dad kept saying “that godamn girl won’t stop studying”. He never understood my drive.

Do Not Let Anything Stop You

Today I encourage you to go after your dreams. Don’t let anything stop you from achieving.

  • Not financial.
  • Not the negatives from those who hate.
  • Not fear.

Do not let anything stop you from going after your dreams.

Remember where there’s a will, there’s a way.

Cheers!
