Today, it feels that there is an ever increasing and inflated sense of self importance from many of those around us. That to get on you have to agree with another’s point of view or you are labeled as idiot or worse.
In today’s environment I can see why more people are leery about stating they want to be successful. Just pick up any paper or scan the internet on any given day and read how more and more the articles ridicule personal wealth and the trappings that come with success. We all should get to make our own decisions and choose our own path.
At the same time there is a group of people who want to be successful but do not want to put the hard work in to actually earn it. They spend more time ridiculing people who are successful and brewing up resentment.
For those committed to learning your craft. I congratulate you for investing in your self. Your future will be bright if you out think, out work the competition and you positively apply yourself to be a force for good. In essence, I contend you have already won and you are on the road to making your life matter.
