Only You Have The Power
Posted in: Process & Statistics
I'm still reeling a bit from the last thread, I must admit.
Let me say it simply guys... only YOU have the power to decide your own worth. Don't ever, ever, ever give that power to someone else. Don't give it to your parents, don't give it to your siblings, don't give it to your teachers, and don't give it to MIT. Those people can all make decisions that affect your life, affect your options, affect your path. But only you have the power to decide your own worth.
Part of resiliency is playing the hand that is dealt to you, no matter what that hand is. Folding is NEVER a good option. Because in life, every hand can be a winner if you play it right. YOU just have to believe. It really doesn't matter who else believes.
Keep moving forward no matter what happens. And (to intentionally sound like a broken record) NEVER GIVE AWAY YOUR POWER.
