Few feelings are more satisfying than proving someone who doubted you wrong. Success-against-the-odds is truly a delicious dish of revenge that should be bragged upon to all of the haters and people who tried to tear you down.
Of course, in a perfect world no one would have to deal with people doubting them in the first place. But alas, human beings are insecure flesh bags who often feel the need to kick others down in order to feel good about themselves. Luckily, we all have the ability to funnel those negative comments back into motivation if we so chose.
1. OnlyMe369 won the bet.
I went to high school in a really small town, in this small town I worked as a farm hand. After I got my associate's degree at the local community college I followed my boyfriend to a larger city where he got a job and would work part-time and continue my education. When I told my boss about my plans he said, "50 bucks says you'll be pregnant in 6 months".
