Wealthier redditors, how did you get your wealth and do you have any tips for a younger person?(r/AskReddit)
Well I would be willing to answer any question, but here is something I was told very early in life that really helped me become wealthy and successful.
Do not play the victim. You are the common denominator, take responsability for everything YOU CAN DO or CONTROL
What I mean is this, if you are in jail, if you are failing school, if you are about to get fired, if you are broke…
The cop doesn’t know your teacher, the teacher doesn’t know the cop, the cop doesn’t know your mom, the jail doesn’t care about your homework, your boss doesn’t know your friend’s drug problems.
You know what all of these people have in common? They know YOU.
You have to focus on the betterment of yourself. Nobody is out to get you, life is shitty and it will be shitty to good people.
Oprah was told, before she even became famous, she was told that she was too ugly for TV. One of the executives told her that she was too ugly to be popular on TV. She went on to become a billionaire.
Overcome your own problems, don’t be the victim. You are in charge of your life ONLY if you take the responsability. If you let everyone dictate your life and blame the world for your problems.. you are gunna have a bad time.
I see success everywhere… it is like a ghost that haunts me.
