lots of successful people on here. lots of people that wish they were successful and lots of people that had it and lost it and want it back. what drives you? what makes you go... what makes you get up at 4 in the morning. what makes you dream about success? what is it? critics? money? tell your story where you came from where you are and where you wanna be and what makes your ticker tick.... ill go first. Im 28. i have 2.5 kids and have been married 8 yrs. Since i was a kid i have heard nothing but negativity. When i graduated from high school my dream was to open up a pizza restaurant. I was 18 had saved 30 thousand dollars through high school working at a pizza rest. called premier pizza in covington GA. it was my dream i was talked out of it. Every time i went for something my parents said NO. i listened to them as i listened to them my whole life. I have 3 kids now i honestly think i could have been huge if i had support back then. I went through several yrs of "you cant do that BS" by pretty much everyone in my life. they never thought like winners. it was always lets play it safe. you wanna do that, go work for someone else and do it. In the last 2 yrs ive stopped listening. now when i tell someone my plans. mainly my folks i get a oh yea.... NEGATIVE. Thats what drives me. my critics. i regret listening to them when i was 18. safe, play it safe, oh you gotta be safe. too safe! sure im safe but their safe is insane. The drive that i have comes from my critics mainly. ive always wanted to be something. something i will be remembered by. Thats my story whats yours? WHAT DRIVES YOU!!!???
