One of the greatest lessons I've learned while taking college algebra is that you have to be willing to adjust to the different setbacks of your dream. My friends, we are all chasing something that is bigger than ourselves. Whether your dream is to play water polo, write or paint you have to learn that there will be times that you are not in the drivers seat of your dream.
For my math class I was at the mercy of everyone around me. I had to study when my tutor could study and I had to learn how to shut up and listen. All during the class I had to learn to adjust my life schedule (eat, sleep & write.) On top of that, I had to adjust to the setbacks because while you chase your dream you will have many setbacks.
You have a talent within you that nobody else can touch. You can achieve so much and all you have to do is learn to adjust to the many demands of your dream.
