“Don’t let others get you down, & never let your dreams drown”. – Justin A. Starks
Not so Simple
If it was this simple everybody would own a house(s) or have infinite wealth. The key is to not follow broke minded people, but study the game. Your income reflects your closest 5 friends. The reason is their mindset. It’s a big difference hanging around millionaires, than one who make little to nothing and struggling trying to impress their friends. Also, read, read, and read!
Change your scenery
Coming from the hood I was limited on my resources. I was thinking at a high level, but never seemed to get any results, because others just didn’t have the mental capacity as me. This led me to give up on myself and not follow through on my goals. I would start and switch which isn’t the greatest idea when trying to find the motivation and aspiration to build a legacy. It took me to change my scenery to grow. This means from friends and the infested ghetto I had to leave behind. I still keep in touch, but I totally understand our minds are not the same. By doing so, it allowed me to find myself and pursue my true passion and that’s key to living in this world. It may seem very harsh, but sometimes it’s mandatory you do so in order to grow. You don’t have to leave forever but you also don’t have to stick around forever.
Feed your passion
You must first find your passion and decide you want to succeed just as bad as you want to breathe. By having a vision, you will want to strive and live every single day. I remember when I didn’t have a plan, or a vision, but I knew I wanted to become rich and wealthy. I had to first learn how to deal with failure and people. I also had to learn that it is not about the money, but being a better servant for others. If you are really passionate about what you do then money isn’t the issue and it will come eventually. Stick to your plan, grow, and elevate to the next level. Don’t let others get you down and never let your deepest dream drown.
