You are about to start a journey. For some it will be a long and difficult journey that they very well may never finish. Some may find that they are almost there before they have even begun. Some may never even begin in the first place. The most important thing is that it is all up to you. The reward is yours to attain or to walk away from. And in the end, when it is completed you will understand that it was worthwhile.
This is the journey to success. The escape from the normalized everyday desperation of the wage slave who will never escape the vicious cycle of work and poverty. People can spend their entire lives dreaming of earning enough money to live happily, to have enough left over after paying their bills and expenses to have enough left over to spend on anything they want. Few people actually attain that goal, dragged down by a number of factors, from lack of skill or motivation, bad habits, bad advice and sometimes just bad luck.
A lot of people will call this the American dream, to live a productive and successful life to the point where one can retire with enough money to live comfortably. Unfortunately, very few people actually attain this dream
I have to admit, my childhood wasn't all that great. Life pretty much sucked, to be honest. I won't go into details here but I will admit that I grew up poor, in a divorced family. It seems like most people in my daily life were there to torment me and show how bad life and people in general can be. I did have some positive people in my life, however. people who shown a light for me, showing me that not everything was bad for everyone. People who were kind and generous, people whose life was so far flung from my own daily existence that I found it difficult to grasp.
To me it seemed that life was a cruel joke. All around me I saw people who worked hard everyday and were miserable. They sold away the hours of their lives for a sum of money that barely provided them with the resources they needed to continue for another day. Day after day I saw people working at tasks they really didn't want to do, coming home unhappy to eat dinner watch some TV and then go to bed in order to do it all again the next day.
As I got older, I hated going to school. It's not that I didn't like the classes, or the people. I just didn't like having to do what other people wanted me to do. I felt like a slave. I felt like I was being trained to become another one of those people who I saw in my life who were trapped in a cycle they could not escape and in which they were destined to be miserable. Ultimately, though I did very well in school when I was younger, as I got closer to finishing high school, I began to do worse and worse. I had gotten to the point where I simply didn't care anymore, and nobody around me cared either. I stopped doing homework and though I attended classes regularly and did well on tests, my refusal to do any homework at all dragged my grades down. It all culminated in my intentionally bombing the year end tests that were given to all students in my final year. we had been told ahead of time that the test didn't have any effect on any of our grades, but would be used to rank us among our classmates only. I finished the test in record time, only because I filled in the bubbles on the answer sheet randomly. It was my final screw you to the education system. I wound up ranking second to last in my class, surpassing only one other student, a guy who never showed up for school at all and never even took the test. I was the furthest thing I can imagine to being a Supernaut, yet I had already taken the first step towards it; I had realized in my own way that the school system wasn't training me to be a better person or to be successful, it was training me to be another one of those people I saw in daily life who were miserable. I knew that I wanted something more, but I just couldn't understand how I was going to attain it.
