- Overcome your Doubts
My first summer, I drove from Salt Lake City, UT to Cincinnati, OH with the dream of making $20,000 that summer. My dad was nice enough to accompany me on the 30 hour drive. We talked lots, listened to music, and listened to “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki. This whole time I was pumping myself up for what I was sure going to be an amazing experience. By the time we arrived, I was ready to start pounding doors… Or so I thought. Once I dropped my dad off at the airport and started driving back to my lonely apartment, I remember getting the biggest pit in my stomach. “What in the world was I doing here?”, I frantically thought to myself. I started seriously doubting myself and my decision. Flying back to Utah sounded so nice and I immediately was envious of my dad. I got back to my apartment and in silence thought to myself, “Do I really think I can do this?”
