I recently made a post on FB stating that I didn’t understand how people don’t travel and experience life and this planet.
Although there was an overwhelming positive response, there were also some individuals who decided that this was the time and place to attempt to highlight my so called “entitled attitude” and question my work history. These individuals made such statements as “not everyone is a multi-millionaire like you” and “I guess if you actually worked hard for you money and paid your own way you’d realize that travel is NOT within most peoples reach very often” First off let me say wow. People are so fast to jump to some form of conclusion that I am better off in a financial sense and I don’t work for my money? I am by no account a multimillionaire or a millionaire, the rest I will address soon.
Why do people immediately write off someone else’s success? They judge right away and express thoughts and accusations of being given said achievements. they immediately discredit and claim that the work and effort put in was not that of a normal person. Why do people view other successful people as not having worked for what they accomplished? They try to prove that the reason they can’t… do what ever (or have what you do)… is because they have to work harder or do more then you ever had to do in your life.
What a crock of shit!!! Honestly, I feel truly sorry for these individuals. The bottom line is no one really knows what other people do, how hard they work or what they really accomplish. And to automatically assume that someone just sits back and waits for success is just mind boggling to me and incredibly offensive. At least get to know someone before you jump to conclusion about how they have accomplished what they have.
Just because I love what I do doesn’t mean I haven’t worked incredibly hard for what I have. It doesn’t mean that I don’t work every day to accomplish more and do more of what I love. I have worked long and hard for what I have today and I continue to work day in and day out so I have the ability to live my dream and do what I love.
The only real difference between myself and these types of haters are 2 things
1. I don’t pretend to know what is with in or out of their means with out knowing them, as well as I don’t discrediting any of their successes by saying it was handed to them and they are just entitled well off individuals
2. I don’t let excuses stop me. I let limitations propel and fuel me and I correct those who have shit to say that is so far from the truth.
bottom line. If you don’t like to hear what I have to say then don’t follow me. If you cant accept my adventures, experiences, or outlook on life then block me. If you question my resources, ask me how I do it. If you want to do it to I can give you tips on what helped me. But don’t insult me, my ethics or how I do things and expect that I will take it sitting down.
Take what you have… right now, no matter how much or how little, and start on your way to achieving what you want. Design the life you truly want and it will take lots of time, hard work, tears and pain. But in the end it will satisfy you more then you can imagine. Start smart and do what every you have to do to make your dreams a reality!
