I AM THE
Lessons on Perseverance
in a World That Tells You No
RELEASING MARCH 14TH!
This book is the culmination of my journey to the establishment of my surgical practice, and it’s a story of perseverance in a world that can constantly tell you no. It’s not a how-to or a humble-brag but a chronicle of how I got here. I want to share my story and my psychological tools because I hope my story and tools may inspire others to persevere.
Nothing worth having in life is easy, and the higher you reach when pursuing your goals, the more difficult the climb will be. But you need to persevere—yes, you—because you have to inspire others around you to be better. When it comes to your goals and your plans for the future, you have to take the initiative to make them a reality. If you’re scared, then do it afraid. But by all means, do it.
It’s not enough to simply overcome life’s challenges—it’s how you overcome them that will become the measure of your charac - ter and the definition of your style. Can I physically pull you up on your journey? No. The strength to do that is already inside you. I’m simply here to encourage you and help you gain the momentum to cross the finish line with your head held high.
My story is not a fairy tale, and it’s not yet finished—but my shoulders are strong and supportive, and my hands are here to give you a boost. Now ask yourself, are you ready to climb?
