So often I hear people saying, if my parents would have done this or if I would have had this when I was a child, then I would be further a head in life.
Some people even blame their current circumstances and situations on why they haven’t made it as far. Others blame the school districts, marital problems, debt, and their childhood experiences on why they are currently stagnant.
A famous quote by W. Clement Stone that I love is, “You are a product of your environment. So choose the environment that will best develop you toward your objective. Analyze your life in terms of its environment. Are the things around you helping you toward success – or are they holding you back?”
It doesn’t matter if you grew up in the hood, if your mom was awful, or if your dad was not in your life. Analyze why you may act the way you act or be the way you are and then make the necessary changes to improve your current lifestyle. Yes it may be hard, but you can do it!
You can do this by developing a positive attitude about yourself and loving who you are no matter what you have gone through or who didn’t love you. You will also have to change up who it is you invite in your life.
I have the hardest time letting go of people, but if the people who I love don’t want to see me at peace, successful, and moving a head in life, they can’t be in my circle. They are now an enemy of the state.
Truth is when you become an adult, you must take accountability and responsibility for where you are in life. No one is going to do that for you! Not even the government , because honestly no one cares where you may be at in YOUR OWN LIFE.(the harsh reality of it all).
If you want to be successful you have to do it for yourself!
After having a conversation with my mom and a close business friend on accountability, I gained a new understanding on why many people continue to fail in life.
Most people are not accountable with how they manage their time! You don’t have to be on social media all the time. Also stop worrying about someone else’s journey, it ain’t yours! Lastly, you don’t have to attend every event just because you think you may miss an opportunity. Be productive every day of your life!
If you give up on yourself and give up on your dreams, visions, and goals you have failed yourself and will never succeed. In the end you can’t blame anyone but yourself.
Make time for what it is they you need to get done. The parties will always be there and so will the women and the men. It’s better to work for your goals than waste your time on pointless things that will always be right there when you make it.
