🔱Find Your Ballast🔱
It is one thing to continually express that you are are not living up to your potential and making a decision to do something about, is on a completely different level.
As a coach it is tough to push people outside of their “excuses” to make them realize that being “mediocre” is not okay. To show up is merely check mark in the box. Hard work and sacrifice should not go unnoticed, but participation trophies will not be handed out.
We all have a story and you are the only one who can live it. You will fail many times throughout your story giving what you thought was your best and sometimes your best won’t cut it. During that time, you have a choice to make, take the easy road, or make a choice to exhaust all your efforts into digging deeper into who you want to become.
Reasons I got through medical school. Post #3:
Meet my partner in life. Getting through medical school is hard. Being an IMG and getting through medical school is harder. Being two IMGs with a baby both trying to get through medical school is near impossible. There were so many points in our journey where it would’ve been so easy to put one person’s career on hold. It would have made the fight so much more sensible, victory so much more likely. And he suggested it. He suggested that he would wait. He had wanted this career for far longer than I had, he had worked harder, studied better—but he offered. He offered to support us while I finished up and then pursue his career. He never expected nor made me feel like my dreams were worth pursuing any less than his. He saw me at my weakest moments, saw me breakdown like no one ever us, witnessed my moments of complete pessimism. And in those moments, he grabbed my hand and pulled us through.
When I was near giving up and told him to leave me behind and succeed alone; he reminded me that his success was only worth it if we both made it.
Meet my constant support, my eternal entertainer, my dose of weirdness, my partner in literally everything and a reflection of everything I have ever believed in.
Thank you, Irfan. I owe you my everyday. ❤️👩🏻⚕️👨🏻⚕️👶🏻
