What do you do when the boss says, “no”? Give up? Quit? Get frustrated? Or do you look for a work around?

Regina Mayer

Regina Mayer jumps with her cow Luna over a hurdle in Laufen, southern Germany, on Tuesday, March 29, 2011. When Regina Mayer’s parents dashed her hopes of getting a horse, the 15-year-old didn’t go sulk in her room. Instead, the resourceful teen turned to a cow called Luna to make her dream come true. Hours of training and tons of treats, cajoling and caresses later, the results are impressive. Not only do the two regularly go on long rides together through the picturesque southern German countryside, they even do jumps over a homemade hurdle of beer crates and painted logs.

Think about this unstoppable 15 year-old-girl next time you get a “no”.
