This afternoon on our med school blog site a fellow student posted, I will quote her, ".....Either you know the material or you don't. Meant to be a physician or not meant to be. You have to accept it. I dont believe in forcing something that is not suppose to happen..." I could not believe what I was reading. There's more to the rant she posted..But, I wanted to address...it's not meant to be, so just accept it."
This made my head start swimming. Does she not realize that many people have overcome obstacles through forcing the issue? That's why slavery ended in America. That's why minorities are allowed an education. That's why women are allowed to vote. That's why I can live anywhere I please. Because someone forced the issue.
We as Americans have a right to force the issues of injustice, unfair practices, and/or a plea for a second chance. This is the land of second chances (maybe even 3rd or 4th chances if your willing to go after it). That's why many groups of people have left their homeland to come to the US to live the American dream of obtaining what they are told they could not have or do elsewhere. Many of my fellow classmates are from other countries and they have shared with me that when you finish high school you are told what field you can go into. No choices or second chances given. Well, this is the United States of America..the land of second chances...
THe only limits in this life are those that you impose on yourself. Push the limits. Dream big. Go where ever you need to go to get what you want out of life. Take a risk. Don't ever let fear or intimidation stop you from forcing the issue. Push with all you have..rest up and then push some more..
I disagree with her statement. Many people are tricked to believing this fallacy. In life you are going to have hills and valleys, smooth roads and some bumpy roads, but never loose heart or hope that YOUR DREAM IS OBTAINABLE.
Know that whatever your heart can conceive, you can achieve. God will direct your path (prov 3); Do not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart (Gal 6:9).
So, is it meant to be? Only if you believe it is...All things are possible to him that believes (Mark 9:23)...Keep on BELIEVING...Keep on DREAMING..
