Let Me Ask You A Question – 2/6/17


Let me ask you a question:

Can you talk about a time when you achieved something which seemed impossible, but you worked hard and reached your goal?

  1. Making the decision to buy a farm, then doing so, and then actually making it work on a daily basis. It was a major departure, and is a daily learning experience. I was lost initially, and wondered if I’d bitten off more than could chew. But, after 17 years, I’m still at it, and actually know somewhat what the hell in doing now. 😃

  2. I decided to be a published author. I did terrible in English back in school, but I was determined to learn what I didn’t in school and develop a voice. I took a correspondence course through Writer’s Digest and later discovered online workshops. I found a mentor. And I kept writing. It took ten long years before my first book was published. Now I have six books and three short stories published.

    And those ten years would have passed anyway, right?

  3. I took up 2 Bachelors Degree in College. BS Psychology and AB English. It was hard during exams week especially when I was graduating because all my major subjects were scheduled almost the same days. Plus I have theses/research papers…I remember one time when I got soooo tired of studying and it felt like my brain is not functioning anymore, I just prayed telling “God, I’ve done the best I could- I lift all up to you now…” guess I was lucky I finished both courses! 😊

  4. Getting into my dream college even after the mental health/academic setbacks I encountered. I worked twice as hard in junior year to make up for my mistakes and made it a point to take better care of myself.

  5. Excelling in school! Growing up in Portugal, the teachers would call the students that were not doing well academically “stupid” and they would group the “stupid” kids together, so we would feel even more “stupid”. I guess believing in myself was a huge challenge that I had to overtake.

      • Yes it is!I am not sure if they still do that, I haven’t lived in Portugal for over 16 years but I know that education is very theoretical and the exams are beyond achievable. Most people settle for just a passing grade. A student there would never be able to study and work at the same time because of so much material you have to learn and memorize all the time.

  6. Just last year when I managed to learn play the piano all by myself. Because I’ve not complete control of my left hand due to an accident that I sustained soon after I was born I always thought that it would be very difficult for me to play it as the left hand is very important in piano, but one day having a piano at my disposal I had a go at it and eventually became quite proficient.

  7. 11 years ago i stopped being able to drive after a muscle biopsy atrophied my leg. I just assumed with the diagnosis of a muscle disease I would never drive again. But 4 months ago I decided I wanted to just see if it was possible. I drove just in the driveway. Then i drove down the block. Then around the block. Now 4 months later i drove 5 miles to a coffee shop. Something i did not ever think I would be able to do again and I did it!
