I have decided to take on a new challenge in my life….I am doing my MBA at the Ivey school of business in London, Ontario. A challenge it has been, as two weeks before starting this program, I came down with the second worse MS relapse in my life.
I did not want this being an issue, but it has been and, well, now I am almost fully recovered. I really do want to do this challenge for all of you out there….do not stop, and achieve more—be something great, which I already think that most of you are.
This relapse was a setback; however, the main issue has been what many of you are facing in your own lives is that people do not understand. I cannot do the same things that I used to and do not want to put my health in jeopardy, just so I can conform to someone that I am not. Even at my age, I still get weird looks from those individuals who will never understand.
Some things do not change in life, even as you get older. Even though some things do not change, hopefully you are changing. Trust your instincts, believe in yourself, and do what is right for you…but most of all; be a leader.
