A dyslexic woman and successful tech entrepreneur was interviewed and asked what helped her overcome the odds. Here’s what she said:
“Affirmations. I literally told myself the naysayers were wrong about me. I told myself exactly what I needed to hear every single day to move my life forward.”
- My next step in the right direction does not have to be a big one.
- I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions. It’s about not letting my fear decide my future.
- The biggest and most complex obstacle I will ever have to overcome is my mind. If I can overcome that, I can overcome anything.
