I was listening to The Ghetto by Too Short & it made me notice that a lot of people are ashamed of coming from a similar background. You have no reason to be embarrassed or ashamed, you because you have the power to change that. You have to be willing to sacrifice time and energy to get yourself out of there! This country offers free education, a wide diversity of fields to succeed in. Not to mention you live during the greatest time in the history of the world, with all the social media, technology and help there is no reason for you to settle for less. You just need to find something you would love to do.
If there IS something you want to peruse DO IT! Nothing in this life is given, it’s earned. If it was easy everyone would be doing it! Follow what you love and the money will come to you. You only have one life so do it big. Go get that degree, start that business, take that course, chase that talent, become the best laborer! Chase for it like you want it! Moving forward is progress, so be patient, nothing happens over night. Be the best possible version you can be and you will stand out and that will open many doors for you. Stay humble and hungry. Success is over the mountain, all you have to do it climb over it! No matter where you are in life, regardless if you feel “lost” don’t worry. We all hit that feeling, but don’t let it distract you from reaching your goal. Don’t let “society” tell you that you have to be 25 with you life planned out or that you need to be 28 with a big house nice care married with kids. FUCK THAT. Success has NO AGE. Remain steadfast. God Speed.
