An old farmer wrote a letter to his innocent son in prison:
“This year I’m unable to plant potatoes because I can’t dig the ground. I know if you were here, you would’ve helped me.”
Son Replied: “You idiot dad, don’t dig the ground. I have hidden the guns there.”
The police read the letter.
The next day, the ground was dug by the police searching for the guns, but nothing was found.
Son wrote again: “Now plant your potatoes dad. It’s the best I could do from here. Love you.”
Moral: Where there’s a will, there is always a way!
One of the key ingredients to earning scholarships starts with your mindset. If you’re passionate about starting or continuing your education, you will find a way to pay for it. Remember, scholarships are just one of the many financial instruments you can use for college.
When working towards your scholarships, remember that they will take the consistency we talked about last week, mixed with determination, and slathered in hard work. YOU CAN DO IT. Just keep going! Remember, where there is a will…there is a way.
