"I accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I cannot accept not trying." - Michael Jordan, the greatest basketball player to ever play.
Since my basketball days, this has been the sole thought in each and every practice, game and many tough moments...even when the decision was made to ultimately stop trying to reach for the stars. I tried, I did my best, I failed, so what.
And it even resonates from me now, while studying medicine, my dream, since the spark caused the fire in the summer of 2016.
Next thing you know it's July 7th, 2018 and I'm in Vienna sitting the medical admission exams in German (MedAT) to study there. The same day, IB exam results came in. Got a 41 out of 45, which meant I would be accepted to the Medical Faculty in Ljubljana, Slovenia, my home country.
I finished in the top 20% in Vienna, missing my spot by about 7%. All there is to know is I now study in Ljubljana and I enjoy it, which is the only thing that really matters in the end.
There are other things to do along school of course. No education ends there. That's why I want to explore and learn new things. I'm interested in medicine (obviously), psychology, thinking, learning and performing. I try to mediate what I read and learn through this website by writing every week.
I specifically write about improvement, as I think it's one of the key processes to becoming happier, more satisfied and more successful. That's what all of us want in the end.
