“Get rich or die tryin”
This is my mantra in life. Although sometimes success is not associated with money. But for most of us, it almost always is.
My point is you don’t dream about success, you work for it. Your 20s,30s 40s – no matter what age you are. It doesn’t matter what your definition of success is. Success is a driving force that adds essence to a person’s life.
I’m in my early 30s, born poor, grew up poor. If you’d see where I am now and where I came from, you’d probably say I’ve come a long way already.
From waking up 3 am in the morning to go to the fields to toil the lands of another person and get paid a bread crumb just for me to get something penny to buy me a notebook.
I’ve also held several odd jobs from being a waiter, construction worker even as a dance instructor in order to earn money to get me through college. Now I’m swiftly climbing up the ladder of the corporate world. My pay grade? Well, it would satisfy anybody with a mediocre responsibility. But not me.
You see, from a young age I have my goal set early and I have never taken my eyes off of that prize. You can say it probably gives me supernatural strength (mentally and physically).
Success by definition for most people is when you have achieved the goals you have set and you are happy with the outcome.
Moreover, it wouldn’t be called
success if it is not relative.
By this, I mean whatever achievement you have attained or goal you have reached should be connected AND beneficial to your current situation.
And if you think that once you have reached one goal you stop and just wait until your last day on earth, you are wrong, my friend.
Success is just a pit stop on this circle of life. If you think you are happy with the initial goal you have achieved, sooner or later [as long as you live] you’ll feel wanting more. I’m sure this will be the time you’ll start setting goals again and off you’ll go….back to the race of life.
