Some days are great. Some days are so great, I think of the people who said I wasn’t good enough or wouldn’t achieve anything and I chuckle. A select few girls that turned me down come to mind, but I’m not naming names; if karma does exist I have no desire to mess things up. Bragging should be out of the question simply as a matter of manners.
And yet, some small part of me looks at my bank statement and earnings, the view off my balcony, the beach I just got paid to lounge on… I don’t want to brag in a “You could have had this” kind of way, because that would just be gauche. It’s more about self-satisfaction and knowing that I can achieve more than some naysayer’s estimation of my potential.
Never listen to anybody who puts limitations on your potential. Work hard, keep your chin up, and prove ’em wrong. Because some day, if you stay the course you know to be true, you’ll hear Toby Keith singing How Do You Like Me Now?! and smile.
