It Doesn’t Matter Where You Start!

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.
Inspired by my buddy Michael West.

Do What You Want, Do What You Love!

Life is short, definitely too short to live it doing something that you don’t enjoy doing. You have to find your purpose, find your passion, find your gift and go at it with your all. It will NOT be easy. You will fall on your face numerous times, but that’s part of the journey! Embrace the struggles and embrace the difficulties! It is only through struggle that we can grow. Welcome all of the difficulties that you can, the more difficulties you face without quitting, the closer you will get to perfecting your craft.

There will be lots of negativity along the way. There will be many people who don’t believe in you and will constantly try to discourage you. They love to see you struggle and pray for the day that you quit. If you quit, they will definitely win. You cannot allow the haters and dream killers to prevent you from chasing your dreams. They will make jokes about you, they will make sarcastic comments, they will dismiss your ideas before they even fully hear them. Don’t be the weak person that allows this to get under your skin and get you down. They will constantly say that you can’t do it. Utilize their disbelief in you as the fuel to prove that you CAN. The best revenge against dream killers and negative people is MASSIVE SUCCESS!

If you really want to be successful at what you love you WILL succeed. Yes, there will be disappointments and failures will happen along the way, but failures are a necessary ingredient on the road to success. You need to taste failure before you can savor the taste of success. Be a humble loser until you win, and then be a humble winner. Don’t allow it to go to your head when you achieve success because you won’t be the talk of town forever. You must KEEP working hard and grinding! You have to continuously hustle to become better than you currently are.

Success is allergic to average. The average person quits after just a few failures. Don’t be average or you will never experience the greatness of success. Push and push and push. Be persistent! Don’t give up and prove yourself worthy of success, but before you consider yourself a success you must have positively affected the lives of others. If you want it bad enough you’ll make it happen, if you don’t, you’ll make an excuse!

Go Live Your Life of Purpose, because Your Legacy Begins Now!
