Couple points: 1) Law school dropout as well (more like pushed out — but that’s another story).
2) With no “father figure” / mentor to guide me, I had to learn everything I know about business on my own. I didn’t get the benefit of standing on the shoulders of giants. Again, that’s a different story about the embittered white male who learned there is no “man behind the curtain”.
My point, success as Americans know it is over-rated and more often than not leads to headaches, heartaches, and health problems. Earlier this year, 2/11/16 to be precise, I found a quote that summed up exactly what I needed to hear. I want to share it here. Maybe it’ll affect someone else like it did me:
“To show up as you are in this moment, that’s the goal. Let that be enough. We often forget that we are as we are until we are not.”
