More Than Just A Background

A story came to my attention not too long ago that sparked my interest in backgrounds. It was about two very intelligent young girls from a poor area in the Bronx. They both had great dreams of becoming successful and making it out of poverty. Although they both had the smarts to make it happen, only one of them did. This is because although they both wanted it, only one of them persevered through all of the hardships and obstacles. Now we all know, in life there will be plenty of ugly things thrown our way, especially when we’re on the path to success. It is never smooth sailing. But it’s what you do with all of those ugly things that shows how strong of a person you are. I say it’s more than just your background because if you truly have a gift, the only thing standing in between you and your victory is how hard you’re willing to work for it.
