Hard worker are words quite often use to describe me. I don’t know where the work ethic came from (but I’m sure in part from my parents, growing up in the military, and being the oldest child) played a big part in it.
From as far back as I can remember I’ve worked for what I wanted. I’ve been unafraid to work long and hard for it…sometimes at the expense of other things in life. I’ve wanted many things in life. When I look back what I realize is all the things I REALLY wanted I’ve worked for and gotten. I set goals (still do to this day) and I reach them. Sometimes it takes time, but I’ve always been willing to work for what I want and have the patience to wait for the work to pay off.
I guess this quote spoke to me because when I stopped and thought about things I’ve worked for in life that I’ve wanted they’ve all involved working (hard) for it. It makes me proud though and I get a sense of accomplishment that makes it all the much sweeter when I achieve my goal.
