One of the largest motivators in my life this far has been an individual telling me “there is no way you can do that!”  “You just can’t!”  This is usually the catalyst that propels me into overdrive in order to make sure that the achievement occurs.  I should state that I always find this as a wonderfully exhilarating challenge and I look forward to proving “I can”.
