Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Peers:

    You should be an accountant because they make lots of money.

  • How I responded:

    Take some time to really think about what MONEY means to you. How much money do we really need? Does money make everyone happy? What will you do with your money? Do you regard "money" as an interchangeable currency? What else do you consider "currency?" I learned to regard other things in my life as currency and redefined my understanding of success. Family. Joy. Time. Helping others. Simplicity. Know what is important to you and let that be your measure of success.

Experiences and challenges that shaped me

Click to expand

  • I couldn't afford to go to college, so I had to live with my parents until I was in my late 20s, even though I was married and had a daughter. I was pretty embarrassed during those years, but I learned to put my pride aside and be grateful.

  • My dad died right at the onset of my college experience, while I was living at home. I had a young daughter and a widowed mother to care for while pursuing my education. It was so difficult, but I learned what grit is, and it has served me well.
