Nobody believed in me. Nobody thought I was smart.
I bombed the SAT. I went to community college.
Nobody wanted to invest in my business. Nobody predicted I would be successful.
It brings me joy to prove people wrong. If people thought I was smart/capable/etc from the beginning, I’m not sure I would have worked so hard.
Still today, most people don’t believe in me. I love that. I get to keep proving people wrong and punching above my weight, probably for the rest of my life.
