Being or saying “self made” is a crop of crap. This is why: you’re not God and you’re not Jesus.
A lot of people now a days play the role of Jesus. “These are the secrets to happiness...I figured it out.” “I did this myself...see my success.” Or they flat out make up their own life rules.
No one would have achieved any of that without help. End of story. They received help from others whom God worked through. It wasn’t luck, chance or coincidence. God set them up this way.
They will deny it, forget to thank the ones who helped them or just never bother to mention it.
“But no one did help me.” You got the drive from something or someone right? It’s your duty to leave your family better off then what they left you, so I say, who do you need to thank who helped you get successful? ^
No one is “self-made”. It’s literally impossible. God sets things up for good reason. He knew you are Cleaner, He knows you want bigger and better and guess what? He is going to give it to you. Just give the recognization where it is deserved.
