Joint pain cure with chicken collagen @ 08:33 pm

Ok so I was thinking the other day... I think there is a direct correlation between the success of a child and the success of that child's parents... I think a big part of my success is that my parents (my father specifically) is successful. He works hard, he makes a lot of money, he gives me a lot to strive for. So I may be 22 but I have really big goals. I think $30,000 a year is chump change... I look at my potential, and where I want to go with my life and realize that I have a lot ahead of me.

Someone not in my situation, someone's who parents barely scrap by, don't have such high goals. I know some people, lower to middle class, who don't have a problem working for $10 an hour. They're willing to do that the rest of their life. I think your ambition, and your drive to succeed is a direct result of your surroundings. As much as we don't want to be like our parents we are.

Success

I agree completely with your thoughts on admiring your parents and their goals and how we grow from that respect. I just don't think that money should allways be the driving factor in our goal of success. Even people with too much money can be unhappy. There has got to be a happy medium somewhere and personally I'm trying to fnd it.

I never really thought about it in terms like that but that explain why I'm not very enthoused about my current jobbers. I think of where I'm starting out as the low end and I have full expectations of earning more and doing greatness with my job.

Thanks for the eyeopener!

I disagree. I grew up in a modest household but hardly well to do by any means. I'm 24 years old now and making $8,000 more per year than my dad does. My dad taught me hard work and ethics, but I attribute success to personality. Different people have different motivations.
