Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Society in general:

    don't think anyone really believed that I would be in a demanding career or thought that it was good for me, either. Some thought that being a good wife and mother or just staying at home might have been better.

  • How I responded:

    Encountering negative people is a part of life. Every time I would face roadblocks in my career, the noise of the naysayers got louder—prompting me to feel like quitting. However, nothing worth fighting for ever comes easy. When you feel discouraged or tired, rest. One has to learn to set, prioritize and reach their goal, and I knew I would be miserable if I did not fulfill my vision. Just keep on swimming and ignore the naysayers to pave your own pathway to success.
