The Doubt

Am I doing the right thing? Is it worth the sleepless nights? Will all my hard work pay off? These are some questions I ask myself when I feel like I am less than or not good enough. Being a college student is not easy and if it was, we would have more college graduates. School is a challenge. I know that a lot of students share my struggle because when I see other students in the USG library at 2 a.m. studying, I know the struggle is real! I then start thinking that maybe I could have done something different and easier but then I realize that is not who I am. All the student I see on the USG campus could have chosen an easier path as well but that is not who they are as well. Before I continue let me cover the definition investment, which is the purchase of goods and (intangible or tangible) services that are not consumed today but are used in the future to create wealth (Thank You Finance/ Econ).  When we are invested in our goals, do we always know the outcome of our investment? My doubt stems from the fear of the unknown. I know the risk and I know the cost but I am dedicated and committed to my goal because my hard will eventually pay off. When I start doubting myself, I take a step back and I recharge my motivation batteries.  Here are some things I listen, watch or read when doubt kicks in. Rocky Balboa I, II, III, IV, V, VI, Eric Thomas, Dana Bailey and CT fletcher (just check them out if you need some #recharge). Don’t give up because you are not alone. If you fall, have doubts or want to give up, just take a step back and recharge your motivation batteries. In the Marines, they say pain is weakness leaving the body. The weakness is the doubt, all the other bad thoughts you have and the physical/mentalfatigue before you want to throw in the towel. You can’t give up because it will be worth it. You have to know that your investment will be worth everything you want it to be. #trustinyou

About ernieg

Aloha! My name is Ernie Gomez, I am a junior in the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD) attending The Universities at Shady Grove (USG) campus. I was born and in Los Angeles CA, and moved to Hawaii when I was 2O years old. I moved to Maryland in order to attend the prestigious Robert H. Smith School of Business at UMD. After graduating high school, I joined the Marine Corp but after eight years of service, I enrolled in college. My decision enabled me to obtain my Associates Degree in Business and Mathematics, at Palomar College in San Diego, California. After my move from California to Maryland, I looked for a top ranked business school that could help me further my education. The Robert H. Smith school easily became my top choice. When I was applying for college at Maryland, I learned of USG and the great resources available to students. After acquiring more information about USG, I just couldn’t resist. If you don’t know me! My hobby? Working on cars. Who inspires me? Anyone and everyone inspires me, because I know I can learn from every person I meet. However, I admire Eric Thomas who famously quoted, “When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.” Words that describe me: Humble, Compassionate, Powerful, Honorable My goal: My goal is to move back to California, next to the beach and buy a home also in HAWAII. I am a humble, compassionate and honorable individual who strives to accomplish my life goals. If you see me around school, feel free to say “Hi” and start a conversation. USG is my #1 pick and I am happy to be a part of the USG community. I hope you enjoy my blogs and if you have any suggestions please feel free to reply to my post.
