When I was in high school my school counselor told me that I would never make it through college (because I didn’t score well on the SAT tests). And those were her exact words!
Being who I am, I stood up and said ‘You want to bet?’ and walked out. Forty plus years ago I got my college degree and still take pleasure in knowing I did something someone said I couldn’t do!
I don’t hold a grudge against this woman who said this to me; in fact if she were still alive I would thank her because by saying what she did it made me even more determined to be successful. A hidden gift one might say.
Have you had any ‘hidden’ gifts?
