A Snapshot of My Life
Take a snapshot of my life a little over a year ago.
I was working three jobs. On top of those three jobs, I was saving myself and thus my kids thousands of dollars a month by also representing myself pro se in divorce court, basically a forth job as my own lawyer in my opinion. AND, again on top of all that, I was taking care of my two little kids full-time, the most time-consuming and important task of all five.
I’ve come a long way by those metrics since then, sure.
It’s easy to think it’s easy if you look at my results instead of my work.
On the other hand, some might brush off my progress and say I’m not a success story because I don’t have a car with less than 100,000 miles on it. Or because my bedroom is my living room. Or because I don’t go on vacations. Or because I still work 7 days a week.
I hope I’m showing you what I seek to show my kids as their role model: selling your dreams for the price of a fancy car isn’t worth it. Selling your soul for all the gold in the world isn’t worth it.
My dream isn’t to have a fancy car or a big house. My dream isn’t to be able go out with my friends and run up a tab at the bar or club. My dream isn’t to be able to say yes when my extended family wants me to go on a vacation. My dream isn’t to be able to sleep in late mornings and stay up late-nights. My dream isn’t to wear designer suits.
Believe it or not, I’m grinding hard, but I’m not trying to achieve any of that. So, mark my words, be prepared for what I do achieve.
