It is a wonderful quality to be strong willed and have a great deal of confidence in oneself, but it is wise to be open minded and welcome criticism. Always know your place and be respectful of your elders, whether it be in your personal life, your family life or your professional life.

Thanks for the terrific comment social worker...maybe you should move. This is not the place for a comment like that. Anyway, The best advice is to make sure wherever your path takes you, make sure you always do what makes you happy, even if it means going off course and doing something that wasn't in your plan.
