Step 1

Let us know what you thought when you've finished.

Step 3

Did their failures and eventual success resonate with your own life experience?

In what way can you relate to their determination to keep going?

Think about the following questions, then answer them in the space provided.

a) Who will determine the path you follow when things aren't going so well?

b) How much will you allow your difficulties or what people think of you to influence your options?
