Our news has been filled with violence and destruction, but success can still be found. One suggestion is to stand strong in your position to show others that they can rise above all stereotypes.

Be nice to others, say nice things. A positive attitude will go a long way, it doesn't cost you anything to be nice. In fact it takes more effort to be negative than it does to be positive. You might live where there's a lot of negativity but you can still be successful. Some (not all) people in the ghetto will celebrate negative activity and uphold negative people as role models. If this is the situation you find yourself in please hold on to my words DO NOT DO ANYTHING THAT CAN RUIN YOUR FUTURE. Notice I said, "future" because anything you've already done is in the past.

If you are a father my message to you is to be there for your family. Keep the promises you make to your children. DO NOT let money be your excuse for not showing up, even if you don't have money to go to theme park for example just take your kids to the park for free...pack a lunch...spend 3 hours at the park throwing the ball around or riding a bike, go hiking, the beach, check & see when the museums are free...no matter where you live you can find something to do. Get out of your comfort zone & get to know your kids, talk to them...you'll be surprised how much they'll love the time you spend with them.

Success is also coming home everyday and handling everything that needs your attention...even when you don't want to do it. Any thoughts on that?

What is success? The definition can vary from person to person. For some success is being a hustler by cheating and scamming others. The problem with that is eventually you will get caught and will have to face some type of penalty. True success does not have a inevitable penalty attached to it. I found success by involving myself in community sponsored activities whether it was through school, church, Rec center, etc...
How do you define success?

Hello everyone, my name is Ken and this is a community designed to help anyone who needs encouragement when they can't see how they can make it.

It does not matter who you are or where you come from, you can become successul! Success is not about money or fame.
