Anyone can do well in life. **EDIT** To include a lilttle backstory
I work full time. I make a six figure income.
Dh works full time. He makes a six figure income.
We have four kids, large home, 3 cars, a boat and a summer cabin.
Neither of us have any more than an associates degree. We worked very hard to get where we are and it took a lot of time, training and ambition. Now we provide a fantastic life for our children.
Neither of us grew up rich. We didn't get help from anyone.
It IS possible to do well in life when you work your ass off for it, and anyone who says they can't do it is just pure lazy.
So many of you women bitch about being poor but half of you sit on your ass and do nothing about it. Stop being lazy and work for it!
Since I'm getting the same questions, I'll just put these here:
Again, I was not handed my life. I had my first daughter at 18. I was a single mom. I put myself through school through partial financial aid and partial student loans. I have an associates in Computer Information Systems. I work in the Information technology field. I maintain and troubleshoot computer systems used by a large and well known insurance company. I would partially from home using my computers. I work partially at the offices in my area that need assistance with their systems. And I occasionally travel to other states to update or repair their systems.
DH is a V.P. of a nickel plating company. He started there 17 years ago as a laboror working in the factory. He put himself through school. He had his degree when we met. He worked his way up through the company and has now been the V.P. for the past three years.
To those that are happy with your life... this isn't in reference to you. You do NOT need to make 6 figures to be happy. This was in reference to those who whine and complain about their life but don't attempt to change it. They sit on CM saying how hard their life is but refuse to work. They brag about their foodstamps. They say its SOOOO hard because they don't TRY.
The point of my post is this: If you don't try to become successful, you never will. But if you put your blood, sweat and tears into it, you can make your life what you want it.
