What is something that you are proud of about yourself?
It took me a while to think about an answer to this.
I suppose my answer to this must be my creativity, it has gotten me very far in life.
I personally don't consider myself that much more creative than others, but, for some reason, others seem to, and this has helped me in many ways such as getting promoted to a director position of a company after starting from the lowest position, in just a few years.
Besides work and career, it helped me understand things better, to find the creative way to learning new things (rather than learning in school or taking courses, which doesn't work for me, I found what does), and it helped solve puzzles in life that were difficult for me to understand.
I never did well in school, not because I caused trouble or did anything wrong, I just didn't really study very well. I didn't study at all really.
I do love studying and learning, the subjects are fascinating to me, it's just the way things were done, the way the education system teaches kids, it's just not for me, it doesn't match the way I am able to learn.
But what I am proud of is that I managed to find my own way of learning. I didn't finish school with the best grades, they were all mainly failed scores, but in the end, I managed to teach myself how to learn, I personalized teaching and learning to be exactly the way I need it to be, for myself.
I managed to learn things I would normally fail in, subjects that would usually require you to go to university to get a degree in, and even found jobs in those fields.
