I know I've written this a ton of times, but I'm super-type A and OCD. I'm an overachiever, and nothing makes me feel worse than letting people down. I have the hardest time taking constructive criticism, because to me, that means I didn't do the task perfectly, which is of course what I always strive for. Despite all of this, absolutely nothing makes me angrier than when people tell me that I can't do something.
I was recently telling a friend about my potential plans after graduation, and she told me that the plan I was thinking about taking "might be too challenging for me." Little does she know, nothing motivates me more than when someone doubts my abilities.
It might be a bit naive of me, but I honestly believe that I can do whatever I set my mind to. I'm not saying I could become a nuclear engineer, but if I want a certain grade, I will make it happen. If I choose a certain career path, I know I will succeed, because I will be so determined to do so.
I love this quote from Virginia Williams, because it's SO true. If there's something I want, I won't take no for an answer. I will find a way to make it happen. Are you the same way?
Have a fabulous day!
