I chose the word 'ruthless' for the title of this post, even though I'm not sure that is fair. I don't think I am ruthless; I think I can be sometimes, but not in a bad way. I'm only ever ruthless with myself.

Why am I chatting on about this? Because I realised something about myself yesterday:

 I always get what I want. Always.

I realised this because I read back over a few of my blog posts from, not only this blog, but my old, private one and I read so many things I said I wanted, things I said I wanted to do, mistakes I wanted to fix. I may have had to wait for it because it may not have happened as quickly as I would have liked, but as soon as I've identified something I want or something I want to do, I will always do it. I will find a way around any obstacles and work my butt off until I finally get there.

I hope that is a sign of my positivity and determination and not plain ruthlessness on my part. I don't think I've ever hurt anyone to get what I wanted? I wouldn't, either, because if something I wanted meant hurting someone then it wouldn't be what I wanted... if that makes sense. I have, in fact, walked away from things in the past because I knew that whilst I wanted it, for whatever reason it meant more to keep someone else happy rather than go for it.

So I don't think I am ruthless, just determined.

And right now, I know what I want next...

How often do you achieve the things you set out to do?

I don't really have much to say other than I really like the look and feel of your blog and I'm looking forward to following you.

I found you on 20SB by the way.

I feel as if I could have written this. I'm exactly the same. If something matters that much to me, I make sure I get it. I don't know if that's my only child syndrome, or if my determination is just extreme! Sometimes I feel as if I'm a bit ruthless ... I've almost certainly hurt some people along the way. But like you, I choose to believe it's determination more than ruthlessness ;)

I deliberate for a really long time to make sure what I want to accomplish is REALLY what I want to accomplish. And if it is, I go for it. I'm not cutthroat, but I make it happen.
