Each of these pictures is a story in itself but the bottom right picture is one you need to hear.
The bottom right tells a story of a man who gave up. A man who had all the knowledge he needed to be successful. A man that was blessed with technical skills that helped him excel in the work force. A man with a family & life ahead of them.
Even with all of that. What it really tells...
Is the story of a man who gave up.
Life got tough. Excuses trumped grit.
It's the story of my father. A man I love & would do anything to help. But, as I've learned, painfully, over the years you can't help a man who won't help himself.
I've heard countless time that my success came from daddy's money. This image in the bottom right, an old boathouse in the woods of South Carolina with no water or power, shows that you don't need "daddy's money" to have success in life.
You need grit.
