#ProudSciMathUSAlumna: Olga Cattell holds an MBA degree from Stellenbosch University. She says: “I’ve learned that in order to achieve your goals you should have a never-give-up attitude. I believe by surrounding yourself with supportive and inspiring people you can achieve anything no matter your background.
Failure is inevitable, but you can choose whether that will motivate you or deter you from reaching your goals. Always treat failure as a learning experience and use that to spur you on.
I found that setting short-term, medium-term and long-term goals is important for success, but do not be afraid to set high goals that are difficult to achieve. These goals will motivate you to grow as an individual.
Good luck on your journey!
