-The Little Mermaid, MMXVII

  1. Absolutely and undoubtedly. The individual is highly motivated and confident. He/she knows themselves well enough and the process they have been through to reach there.❀

    1. I would agree. Someone who laboriously climbs the ladder of economic success by dint of sheer hard work and talent rather than because of inherited riches, family connections or other prerogatives develops the remarkable qualities of courage, resilience and equanimity. I look up to such people.

  2. Lil’ Mermaid – so sorry about all that silliness on your blog yesterday. I hope you were not offended by that mad conversation and can see your way to putting it down to a bad attack of silliness – once again, sincere apologies!
