Almost every time I read success stories about various individuals becoming doctors, it seems as though they made the decision early on. For example, "I wanted to be a doctor since....like, seven years old." It's as though if you didn't want to become a doctor at a young age, than you are obviously not serious enough....or something lame as, it isn't your calling, you gotta KNOW you were/are going to be a Doc. Personally, I never really thought much about being a doctor at a young age. When the thought did cross my mind in high school, I felt as though I wasn't smart enough, or competent to become one . I finally realized that if I lost the chance of going for the greatest challenge, I would always live in guilt for settling for less. Anyways, at what age, or during which time of your life depending on your circumstance, did you make the decision, and went after it?
