Hi, my name is Mike. I am 26 years old, and if half of what I am finding out lately is true, I might finally be growing up. This world is full of deception and distraction. These things always pull our focus off of what truly matters in life and try to put it on things that just waste our time. If this is something I can learn now, before I reach any level of real success, I could be saving my own life.
You hear rappers talking about money and drugs and all the alcohol they could want and all this flashy stuff. I guess they never grew up learning that all of that fades quicker than you can imagine. Sure money is a great thing, if it’s serving a greater purpose. It’s not wrong to have things, but these things can’t have you. It’s fine to have a girl, have money, have some expensive things, but the second all of those run your life, you are just a hollow man chasing more emptiness.
True comfort comes in the form of family, friends, God, achieving success, doing good for others, and leaving your positive impact. If you make all the money in the world and never use it for a purpose, you’ve wasted all your success. If you’ve been alive for 70 years but never made a difference, you never once lived.
I could go on for hours expressing everything going on in my mind, this is only about 1% of my thought process, I’d love to talk to any of you about everything I am going through and have been through.
I will tell you one thing, if I ever achieve the success I am chasing, I will make the biggest difference possible in the lives of as many people as possible. This wont be a wasted life.
