What I carried through my personality and my attitude, it’s the mindset to exceed my own expectations. To try everyday to do more and better in the field where I want to excel. No matter what, it is a deal with yourself to commit and succeed to reach your goal. I do remember a time where my grades were not good. My dad this time didn’t say a word and I think his lack of reaction made me realise that this time I really fucked up. I knew deep down that I hasn’t been particularly attentive at school, laughing and chatting with my friends more than anything else.
When I did realise the seriousness of the situation, my insouciance bubble cracks and I took the bull by the horns. I wrote down on a sheet of paper all the subjects in which I wanted to improve and put it on the wall in front of my desk. Everyday, I was seeing my notes and it reinforced my will to reach these goals everyday. Day after day, this constant reminder pushed me to do more, to do better and to persevere. I never ever stopped until my new grades were significantly better and showed that I obtained finally very good grades. Without knowing it, I used visualisation that I transformed into reality with this sheet of paper. And it did work. I also developed my grit by not giving up but getting back at it constantly and relentlessly. And I didn’t have a clue about it. I just put my mind to it and it worked.
Now, I am at crossroads where I feel that I need to start over. Build up my network and maintain the existing one, ask for help and draft my own training guide, find my mentor. All these steps need to be reached to use my full potential, being confident and shine as I should be. It won’t be easy everyday but I will fight everyday to make my dreams come true and be where I want to be. So my dear readers, if you are in this situation right now, don’t give up, persevere, believe and fight. I will be with you.
