Being the fact my grand-mother was a Yankee, she had high standards for all her grand-children. She always believed that discipline, intelligence and respect were very important in life and she pounded them in every grandchild brains each and every day. She always said having discipline would help you thru stressful events in life, having intelligence helps you succeed in the learning and having respect helps you gain trust in others. With following those three standards in life, I have been able to succeed in many things. For example i have gone to school and gained three different degrees and also obtained an amazing job.
