There is an ancient iron myth that if you follow the rainbow bridge to the end, you will get a pot of gold
I know that as a Christian, God sees the future in ways I do not know how to see it, and also, that I have sometimes seen the future in ways that those around me see as impossible.
When I first returned to university after flunking out the first time, I had a 1.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale and I got kicked out of the career centre because they thought I was delusional when I said I wanted to get a PhD.
Fast forward years later, I got straight A’s for 5 consecutive academic terms and raised my cumulative GPA above a 3.0 and broke an academic record by getting the highest grade ever recorded in one of my introductory classes. I had one semester where I averaged A+ in all 4 classes, and got 27% above the class average in one of my courses with a 100% average on a 24 page essay when the class average was a 60%.
Now, nobody laughed at me when I said I wanted to be a professor. I knew the day I returned to school with a 1.0 GPA that I could go to Harvard one day but only two of my friends believed I could do it. Now I’m trying to write books cause I got a message from God telling me to do it.
There we’re many times where I felt like it was so impossible, like how am I supposed to get rich when I don’t have an MD, a PhD or an Ivy League Degree, but I thought God had performed miracles for me in the past and somehow God could pull through for me again. Now I know I could produce a 400-500 page book in as little as 1-2 months but I think God might want me to write 13 books and not just one, so once again, not sure if I can do it.
