The four-letter word NOT to avoid

Nobody, and I mean nobody, is entitled to anything.

To create a successful life, you must put in the work.  Nobody is going to bail you out, not your parents, not your employer, not the government.  Nobody.

Stop waiting for a hand-out and go out into the world.  Go something.  Even if the work you do is temporary, imagine what that better life is for you.  As financial guru Dave Ramsey says, "Leave the cave, go kill something, and drag it back home."  Okay, okay, we're not actually killing anything, but it's a metaphor for putting in the work.

Leave the safety and security of your home.

Go to work.

And do it today.

W.O.R.K. is not an evil four-letter word.

The great inventor Thomas Edison once said: "Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work."

Well said.  Now get to it.
