I just wrote a vent about being poor and I still have so much to say. I really feel down and out. I am lost and don't know what to do. I don't know how to be successful at least not w/o a college education. Im really trying and Im still in the dumps. I can't afford to go to college I dont have 18,000 laying around the house. Financial will only pay 3,000. I applied for grants ..still nothing! I even went as far as writing Oprah to see if I could get some kind of grant for school. I feel like a loser right now. I will take any advice I can get right now.

What kind of education are you seeking? Alot of Americas Millionares are drop outs, Education will not bring financial success alone.
I too was under this misconception, here is one of my favorite quotes: Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Like you I was tired of being Unsuccessful, So after a few visits to a near by church that gave me a book called SUCCESS! and a magazine called SUCCESS, reading through those I found there are some key elements to being successful in anything you do.
One thing that always has been seen is that the successful have mentors.
If you are interested in something like this let me know. I have started myself and enjoying it already.
