Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Why are you doing that or your never gonna be able to do that.

  • How I responded:

    I had to believe in myself and overcome the self-doubt. It's hard and it'll always be present but you have to remember if your shy, scared, or embarrassed you will never achieve your goals. You have to want to do what is right and always be open minded. Ask for help when needed and help those around you the more they grow the more you grow as a person.
