Looking back I can say that I was afraid, afraid of wanting anything.
I figured wanting would lead to trying and trying would lead to failure, and failure is not an option.
Ever since I was a child I dreamed of becoming a successful woman. I believe knowledge is the utmost valuable tool for life, therefore going to college and getting an education, a master’s degree, will give me great knowledge.
Success to me is when I have a master’s degree in Business management, a career, and a family. The knowledge I gather will help my path to success.
A friend once told me I was much better than I thought I was, and he would help me do more in a positive sense, he was the one that helped me realize failure was something I shouldn’t be afraid of.
Since that moment I find that I can’t stop wanting.
Someone once asked me what I believed in, what I wanted to get out of life and where I saw myself a couple of years from now…I was speechless, just standing there with a blank look upon my face, guess I looked like a deer in the headlights.
At first I was outraged for not knowing what to say, and then I became concerned.
It is not easy working a full time job and going to college at the same time.
But nothing good comes easy and I’m determined to work hard for it.
