i began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life...if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be" - roald dahl
Ah...yes. I have an unavoidable person like that in my life and I can't tell you how IMPORTANT it is to let the snickers and belittling words go and focus entirely on your goal(s). :) It is easy when you realize that it is totally the thing to do and you are worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!
