Do you really want to be successful? Of course the first thing that most people utter is yes, same as if asked if you want to be rich. However, the cold truth is that a lot (if not most) people don’t want to be successful. In order to be successful in life, especially if you aren’t born into a wealthy family is through a lot of hard work, blood, sweat and tears. Now this is a lot of work, and a lot of people prefer being comfortable rather than taking that extra inch in pursuing the lifestyle they truly imagined growing up or dream about while grown.
It’s never too late to give up on a dream however, take the KFC Colonel Sanders story for instance. But you have to differentiate yourself from the group mentality and comfort, and take a risk. As for myself, one of my current main goals is to be able to work for myself completely by 25, either through my own freelancing, one of my online side businesses, etc. I still have a good few years before I get to 25 but i’m willing & passionate to put in the work so that when I do get to 25 I can have that freedom to live the life I want to live and not have to live my life by a clock, run by company I don’t own.
