OK...I know this is another weird one to be thankful for.
But parts of my life have been hard. I think most of you can say that too! Perhaps, I shouldn't just call it "work ethic", but a combination of that, determination, and stubbornness! It appalls me to see people think they don't need to put in a full day's work, and instead sail by on the hard work of others.
Tell me I can't do something? I'll find a way to get it done!
Treat me like an idiot? Don't worry - I'll find a way to outsmart you.
Act entitled? I'll work circles around you without you realizing it.
