Graduate Spotlight: Mia Martinez
People will throw stones at you. Don’t throw them back. Collect them all and build an empire.
We face many challenges throughout our lives. It is how you learn to overcome them and use them to your advantage. Challenges are what makes life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.
We cannot become what we want by remaining what we are.
— Max Depree
Overcoming challenges and failures develop good leadership qualities. Most successful people have learned from their failures. Every obstacle should be considered as a steppingstone. Knowing that one can overcome obstacles, learn from struggles and benefit from mistakes lays a solid foundation for success in life. I chose to be determined and persistent to overcome my struggles which helped me build my inner strength and gain confidence.
The worth of any goal is measured by the obstacles you’re willing to overcome to reach it!
— James Macdonald
When I look back at how I have overcome my struggles, I feel proud of myself, and I thank God for giving me the patience, wisdom, strength, and understanding to overcome the most challenging periods in my life. I remained focused and determined not to give up. My family and friends gave me the encouragement and support that I needed and wanted. Sometimes hardships in life might make us feel that everything is over in our life, but when we encounter notable examples of determination, and we understand that when approached with the proper mindset, adversity can bring success. Our weakest moments should be considered as opportunities rather than limitations.
Understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of success.
— Arianna Huffington
Until you change your thinking, you will always recycle your experiences.
I thank God; without you this would not be possible. Thank you to my family and friends for your continuous support, encouragement, and believing in me. To my daughter Malia, you are my motivation! To the instructors and staff at Laurus College, I thank you for the all the time and dedication you have given to me to become successful. Stay positive, keep your faith, stay clear minded, and surround yourself with people who will bring out the best in you.
Work hard in silence. Let your success be the noise.
— Frank Ocean
