I remember telling my mom it was her fault I would never be a model! My mom is only 5'1 and with those genes I wasn't going to surpass 5'5 so there went my modeling career!
You were born with attributes and qualities you can't change!
* Where you came from
While you can't change any of these; there are for more that you can change with practice, training and education.
Your mom and dad gave you talents and gifts as well as your height, IQ and hometown.
What are those talents and gifts?
I wasn't given the gift of height - supermodel was not in the cards for me. But I was given plenty of other gifts.
Focusing on cultivating the talents and gifts that are already within you.
What can you do to increase them?
Do you need to educate yourself more?
Put in more training hours?
Practice your craft?
The only way to truly get your gifts and talents to shine is to work on them.
