Can we just be real today?
Many of you are in college and you're busy at work on your future careers. However, some of you are still trying to figure out what your path should be.
However, there are those rare people who just seem to be extremely driven, focused and determined to achieve success. When they do, one of the things that they discover is how often even family and friends treat them.
Let's just face it: folks really do have a crabs-in-a-barrel mentality and can't stand to see other people succeed.
Are you going through that? Or do you know someone who is?
Only YOU can make your life work. It's no one else's responsibility if you fail. You get exactly what you settle for in life.
Sometimes it's the people that some hang around that stifle their growth. Other times, it's the lack of confidence, discipline and hard work that is necessary.
I'm one of the few people in the world who actually love to brag about other people succeeding--especially if I know them. I'm a natural motivator and it just gets me hyped to see a person achieving in life.
But that's rare...however, I'd like to encourage those here who are trying to achieve something in life--hold on to your dreams, believe in yourself and don't allow the petty HATE of slackers get you down.
Just remember, Jesus was hated too--and he was perfect.
