What is your greatest challenges experience and how did you overcome it?

Well challenges for me I really things to overcome they are experiences to learn from so I don’t really look at challenges as something that’s difficult it’s more a mental battle of where I’m going and making the next right move the next right step that I am always battling with however learning to trust myself and being OK with setbacks is something that I am still learning to deal with because I have huge responsibilities not only to myself but others and I take that very seriously.
