I will

October 4, 2010 at 2:27 am 3 comments

I was once told … ‘You will barely graduate high school.’
So I graduated with honours.

I was once told … ‘You aren’t the university type.’
I got accepted to the top engineering school in Canada with scholarship, though didn’t go.

I was once told…’ I can’t believe you made it to your final year with such poor writing skills’
My fourth year in-depth research paper was the top in the class.

I was once told …’You will never live abroad’
I went to Australia, for one year.

I was once told … ‘You will fail’
I did.   And it was awesome.

Recently, I was told …. ‘Your business idea is good, but YOU can’t possibly do it’
I will.

    This is an attitude that we share.

    I was told by teachers and even “friends” what I couldn’t become.

    I thank them – Because it still inspires me till this day.

    Keep rocking and doing your thing. Prove the haters wrong…
