I decided to write this blog to not only inspire you, but to make you realise that anything is possible. If you want to be something in life, with dedication and determination, you can get there… but it can take time. The story I am going to tell you about is of a successful roofer from Plymouth who created a successful business (Plymouth Roofers).
Starting from the beginning, there was a student here at Sussex university who never believed in himself. When asked to do assignments or work, he would never give his best as he never thought his best would be good enough anyway. As a teacher, I tried to make him realise that giving his best would be more than good enough, but he didn’t listen.
As the months went by, it became that time of year where he had to make a choice. He either had to carry on how he was, or really dedicate his life to his work and pass his exams. After a few words of wisdom, I seemed to break him and he promised me he would really knuckle down on his work for the coming months.
The moral of this story is, just because you haven’t done enough already, doesn’t mean you can’t change it and make everything better. My student worked so hard for the next few months and he passed his exams. He is now a successful roofer and has all the experience he needs. Whatever it is you want in life, just do it! He didn’t believe in himself but as soon as he changed his thoughts, his world changed too.
