No excuses! That’s what I want to scream at the top of my lungs to any non-candidate that complains about their lack of time, energy, sleep, etc.
So many of us have children, husbands, siblings, parents to take care of all while struggling up this hill. We have full time jobs, church commitments, school functions and a million other things going on that don’t stop just because we’ve decided to go after this elusive goal.
And so often we hear the complaints of others. How are we supposed to respond to that?
I think we respond by being better than those complaints. We hold our heads up high, smile and know that we aren't complainers. We are doers. We are achievers. We are capable of achieving our dreams. We are CPA candidates!
Part of the allure of becoming a CPA is that it's not easy. If it were easy then everyone would do it and we wouldn't appreciate it nearly as much as we do now.
So no more complaining for me. I'm thankful for the Another71 Forum where I can hear from likeminded people going through the same thing. I'm thankful that I can take 1 part at a time and have 18 months to pass the other 3. I'm thankful that there are online study courses that I can “attend” instead of having to leave my home several nights a week for a live class.
I'm thankful that I can retake an exam…and retake it…and retake it until I pass. I'm thankful. And I know I can do this.
God bless you all and I pray that your studying is productive and focused. WE CAN DO THIS!
