Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Family:

    I heard people telling me that I was not going to be able to be a Assistant General Manager and going to school at the same time . It was very disappointing and for a moment i wanted to give up. I am glad I didn't stop and I was able to accomplish my goal

  • How I responded:

    Always have a plan for any goal you want to accomplish and be ready to pay for the price of success. Sometimes you will have to give up in things you love to do like spending time with friends , family or even being in a relationship. The most important part when you accomplish your goal is that you gain so much confidence in yourself and from there nothing will stop you. I always think once you win your first battle you can win your next war!
