I would like to be a surgeon?

I'm a junior in high school, so now I've been considering different careers. All my life I have grown up wanting to be a entrepreneur like everyone else in my family. They have all been successful so I'm guessing I just assumed it would be easy or I could find a job at one of their companies. Sometimes I think I convince myself that I want to be a businesswoman because of the money, risks, and travelling. However, I'm considering becoming a surgeon now. I'm so doubtful that I would achieve this dream that I can't even admit it out loud. It might partially be because I am not extremely smart. I'm above average, in a couple of AP classes and what not. However, science has never been my strongest subject. BUT I feel like that is because of my lack of resources. I've taken Biology, Chemistry, and I am taking Physics now. The last two don't really contribute to surgery but the first one does. I did well in Bio but I was in the average level. Next year I plan on taking AP Bio, AP Psychology, or AP Forensics to make me more familiar with the field. My biggest fear is that I am not smart or competitive enough, but I feel like if this is my passion I will compete to the best of my abilities. Blood intrigues me but I don't have super steady hands. Another small factor is that I feel like it's going to be very intimidating to compete. I'm only 5'1'' and look harmless. Help? Do you think I have what it takes to become a surgeon? Do you think I should become a surgeon? Regardless of the money and years.

Yeah, you're ok. Get ready to go through 4 years of getting an undergraduate in either Bio or Chem though, It's good that you're taking Psychology, forensics is more medical examiner. Are there any Bio-tech or Anatomy Classes at your high school? Those would help you A LOT
