You don’t choose your background and it can determine parts of your life either positively or negatively. You can inherit a lot of money which can give you a flying start in life or you can come from a family that don’t even have money for sending their children to college which might affect that person’s futuristic income.
Further, when you are raised in a family that is wealthy they usually educate their children differently as well. In Norway they did a study regarding children and their background and the results backed up the meaning of having a good background. The results showed that children coming from homes were there were many books and parents of high education succeeded more frequently than children that came from a not so good background.
I am fully aware of the importance of background and as many of you know my background is not the best. I love my family and they are very important to me but my background has influenced me in many aspects I must say. I took some decisions in the past that I regret that might have been influenced me by the fact that I did not have the typical frames of an average child.
Despite coming from a background that is a bit difficult I don’t think that your destiny must be worse than others. Your attitude and character will also influence how your life turns out and I believe that almost everything is possible if you work hard enough for it. I have worked very hard in order to change this cycle and have been able to give my children a different background than I have. They go to better schools and have better opportunities than I had when I was young. I was very dedicated to work hard and try to do something with myself instead of being satisfied with the level that I was supposed to be at.
The message in this post is that no matter how hard things might be there is always a way out if you choose your attitude everyday when you wake up and build yourself a strong character. Life is full of people that have succeeded despite coming from poor families.
You might ask yourself why I reveal so much about myself. That is because I think that my past might have the message that as long as you have faith and work hard you are able to turn things around and change your life to the better. I think that everything in life happens for a reason and I believe that I can help people using my life experience to inspire people and showing them that everything is possible if you are willing to do something about it.
