It is not where or under what circumstance that you enter this world that determines what you will be. It is a matter of dedication, perseverance, and sacrifice. Planning how to achieve your dream, keep at it and do not transgress from the course and understand that sacrifices will have to be made. Someone here said something about supporting ones family. The sacrifice would have been to not start a family until your dream has been realized. A rags to riches story is usually full of chapters of self discipline and sacrifice. How much you achieve is a direct product of how badly you want to achieve it. Luck is createed by prior planning. What you did yesterday will effect tomorrow. Sports teams that are bad and seem to have no luck is because they are no good, the good teams creat their luck by preparing all week for the game on Sunday. Michael Jordan wasn't lucky; he prepared and made himself good enough to achieve his dream. Muhammad Ali, Babe Ruth, Wayne Gretzky, Bill Gates, Ted Turner all prepared for the day they could achieve what they set out to accomplish.
