I lived all but maybe 2 years of my childhood in a mobile home. My home literally rocked side to side during strong storms and tornadoes. I went years where I had to be careful where I walked in my home because I might have fallen through the floor if I stepped in the wrong spot. The list goes on and on, and even followed me into my adult life. You know what though, I’ve been on a steady upward mission ever since.
I love my parents for everything they did for me and my siblings, but my obligation is to make sure that my family has it exponentially better than I had it, and my obligation is to teach my children to ensure that their kids have it exponentially better than them. This should be all of our missions. I don’t say any of this for shock or the awe factor, I say this because there are others out there who are going through rough lives. We must inspire them to believe
This post is not about your home. Homes are only being used as an example. It’s about your entire life and the mindset you take through life.
If we are born in the upper-middle or in the upper socioeconomic class, we should not take it for granted and feel that we are better than anyone. Just because we have it good from childhood doesn’t mean we’re better than those who were born in poverty or lower class.
I don’t care where you are in life, I DON’T CARE!, if you drop the excuses, if you make the sacrifices, if you stop trying to compete with everyone else and start competing with the you of yesterday, you WILL make it around the bases and to YOUR home plate in due time. Cut out all the desire for instant gratification. It’s going to take time to see the fruits, but you better not quit sowing!
As long as you are putting in work to make it to the next level, they are a success!
If you need a little encouragement, wisdom, inspiration or whatever, to extract your potential and start living your life of purpose, feel free to leave your information and I can put in contact with someone in my network that can help you get to where you want to be in life.
