BlankPaperz Short Piece contest longlist
I’ve always admired people who have all the confidence in the world. People who are not afraid of a crowd or not afraid to say what’s on their minds without any hesitation. I’ve fought every single day to become that person. As a young child, my mother made it clear to me that in a selfish world, the smart ones succeed. As humans, the idea of being competitive and wanting a better life, runs through our veins. How we achieve this relies solely on us. My dream is to become a legitimate business entrepreneur, but getting there is no easy task. I wish to take advice from people who have been there and are thriving and hopefully, this will work out for me. On the other hand, if it does not, this does not mean my dream is over. It simply means I need to find a new one. There’s a thing about humans, it’s called versatility. We underestimate our ability to wake up the morning after a horrible day before and do the unexpected. This is not me. I can adapt to any situation I find myself in. How I choose to do it is what makes a difference.
