No matter what happens in life, people seem to think that so much is out of their control.

Yes, there is luck in life and there is privilege in life.  But most people that make it have had better ideas, execution, or work ethic than their competition.

The market does not care if you are black, Hispanic, trans, gay, green, or a woman.  The market rewards innovation and execution. If you look at the people who have revolutionized the world in the last 100 years, they have done so because of their ideas or actions.

If you are the type of person who wants to feel sorry for yourself and think you’ll never get ahead, then I have news for you.  You are right.  If you think you’ll never get ahead you never will.  We have to be our own biggest supporter.  If you don’t believe in yourself trust me, others won’t either.

If you don’t think you can, you won’t.  If you know you can, then you have a shot.

The world does owe you anything.  That just makes you entitled if you think that.  And the world is not out to get you.  That makes you sound like a whiny kid if you think that.

We make our own fate and destiny in this world.

Go make it.
