Those examples weren't given to receive pity or anything like that. there are millions of people that continue to do this on a daily basis. I'm simply stating that I feel that I never really got the chance to enjoy life. Rather, I'd always rush through it going from task to task instead of taking it in. That's why having a day like the other day was so special to me. I was in no rush, had no worries, and was able to do things that enjoyed. This gave me a taste of how I want the rest of my life to be and I'm even more motivated then before to make that happen.
It has been my goal now for about 10yrs to be a millionaire by the time I hit 30. Why 30 you ask? Well because I have some pretty adventurous things I want to try out, and the way it looks, my body may not hold up much past that age. As each year goes by and I see myself getting no closer (financially) to that goal, I become even more focused. With 4 yrs and 5 months until that date, I now make sure that each move I make is properly calculated to push me in the right direction. I want to make sure everything I do has me on the right path to reach my goal. I WILL be worth a million dollars by the age of 30 I am confident in that. Not because I have a lottery ticket that I know will win. Not because I have calculated a master craps and blackjack strategy, although I am still trying to work on one lol. Simply because I HATE TO LOSE at things I can control. I can't really explain it but I just don't like it and I actually fear the feeling of being a loser. Therefore I use that fear to motivate me to success.
