He said to me, ” If you were in an elevator full of people and only had 1 minute from the 43rd floor to the ground floor to sell yourself, how would you? Think about It Ms.Pretto. This is just the beginning of your career. You will get you where you need and want to be.”
– Beneficial food for thought.
Place yourself in a room full of thousands of people competing for the same thing and it can only be given to one person. How do you manage? How do you set yourself apart from the others so significantly? Can you? How Much are you willing to? Who do you share this moment with? Do you share this moment?
I know who I am and where I want to be. How well do I know? Sometimes I question it. Not to say I am not happy, but I know there’s more out there. There’s more I can do, more I can achieve. I am just one person and that’s all I want to be. What kind of person? I am raunchy and conservative, stylish and casually laid back, loud and soft spoken, broken and whole, temperamental and empathetic. I am a writer, a mother, a sister, a daughter, a friend, a learner and a teacher. This woman I am, 100% me. If I can’t be that woman, then who will I be? Nobody but me. I always encounter people who completely understand me and people who completely don’t. Either way, nothing can change who I am, where I’m going and where I want to be. I cannot please everybody and don’t desire to do such a thing. Not because I do not care but because I do not have time to waste. There is no rule to conform to the liking of others. Who does stand still for? Exactly. Forward is the only direction I am going. Carefully laying each brick for the long road that lies ahead of me.
