Is success something you achieve alone or do you have others involved?
I believe that all of our successes come from the work we do and our humility to see when others are helping. A lot of my successes come from family and friends along with the new people who come into my life. Unity is the only way towards a fruitful and prosperous life. What angers me is when people forget the ones who were there for them, when they needed a lift, or a discussion, which gave them hope to continue toward their goals. From childhood life till today there has been many people involved in my life that helped me get to where I am at, and I am grateful for all of them. I must also do the same for those who come into my path. I wonder how many of those people are angels from God? I remember one hot summer day in the Bronx,I was with 2 others and we did something that got some other people angry, we were running for our lives, as I was running I felt that it was the end. I ask God in that moment to forgive me for what I have done, and if he got me out of this I would never do it again. Out of nowhere a car stops and a man tells me get in, me and the other 2 guys jumped into the car and we got on the floor of the car where we couldn’t be seen and were able to get away. I survived along with the other 2. I asked the man who was he? He tells me “a friend of your brother”, than he tells me this isn’t for you get away from those friends of yours. I eventually did and started working. I never saw the man again but I still remember. On another time when I was struggling with my addiction my mom who knew this young boy who would go to her church, had him meet with me. I told him about my problem and he said that all will be good one day that I would change and live a great life. 3 years later I was clean and sober. I never saw him again and my mother neither. I could try and find an explanation, but I prefer to believe that the 2 of them were angels that God had watching over me. We all have to have an open mind and believe in something greater than ourselves in order to survive our daily lives. To find success we must have faith for some of us will have to deal with some real bad situations, and some of us will go strait and never have one problem. The people you meet in your life could make the difference between winning and losing, it’s up to us how we go about it. I continue to receive help from people that are guiding me towards achieving my goals, Goals that come from God not my ego.
Have a nice day :0)
