with a purpose."
Of course to limit this quote to college or academic pursuits in general, would miss its point. In every aspect of our lives, there are challenges that test our willingness to see something through and there are times I fear such challenges will overcome me. But as reassurance I look to this quote, I am an incredibly stubborn person (ridiculously so at times) and sometimes I forget that stubbornness is one of those traits that can be beneficial or harmful depending on how we choose to utilize it. So if I choose to channel my energy towards my goals and dreams, then I have turned my stubbornness into meaningful way of growing, learning, and achieving my best.
