Struggles with True Success Turns some People Rich Mentally - Quality of Life
Hubpages has taught me some valiant lessons, making friends, learning from others, gaining a massive following that is true and real in all ways possible, and I also learned on Facebook that its not just about me. Even though I love to act silly at times, share stupid quotes and all. Sharing has become a number one game changer in the end for us all, and none of my posts really mean anything until I get back into the swing of playing fair there, by sharing the love and support with others.
With all this being spilled here onto the screen I would just like to say thanks too all those of my fellow hubbers who cared to pay me any attention, to spread the love in my direction for whatever reason it may have been.
I'm always going to remember you all for your kindness, your generosity, your care to share for others. Our words mean a lot, they are us in actuality here in hubville, and on FB never never land as they fully represent what our mind is poring out both consciously and subconsciously.
Success begins at a very young age
To be all that you can be is what is the most important thing I was taught as a youth, going to a cool place known as the , the name really doesn't matter anymore, but let the truth be known that I was touched by such and experience, and it has humbled me in the face of true economic strife, facing adversity during a real struggle to survive with my mother, brother, and stepfather back then. Madison Square Boys and Girls Club
The strength of the community is what made it happen for me, it empowered me to remain focused and dedicated to a good cause, rather then join in on the chaos in the streets of New York, and that of the drug scene, which was claiming the lives of children, young teenagers, and even adults addicted to them nasty things left and right as well as the innocent.
Social Status in life is the last thing I would ever care to want or think of needing, people who aren't truly real to themselves or that of others, have no idea what they want from life, because true success in my eyes isn't climbing up a social ladder to success, which is in fact based on false pretenses. Instead, it's something that is truly earned from surviving whatever you've been facing at any given moment (Which is like that ever evolving, sliding & revolving door), that is blocking your path to it. Then living to tell the story in the end, no matter what the outcome is, this to me is true success which is neither material based, nor monetary in value.

Life experience as a whole
Life today is far better for me, I see things in much more clearer, and brighter ways, the world is our oyster to have and to hold, but also to take delicate care of, and so yes this is and always has been my very premise living in it.
To someday become well known for something huge (Doesn't everyone want to be remembered for great successes in life), to be known as a man who truly cared, who was different from my peers who used to pick on people, bully them, harass them, stealing, stalking them, and even killing others for both survival and for nothing, which is all a total disregard for the living (Thank god for me, I had escaped such wretchedness unscathed like many lucky victims of a dieing system). I knew all of those behaviors were most definitely wrong and not the way to live, so I stayed far from its hateful, and self destructive reality. For me as I grew much older the only way to fully escape it was joining the U.S. Military.
Things learned from that of the Navy Creed :
"Honor, Courage, and Commitment"
"Fair winds and following seas Shipmates"
"Never ever pay attention to that of a Scuttlebutt"
Military experiece of success
Joining the military took my life into a definite ultra information loaded zone, and far from any sort of physical or mental instability. Such a transformation from living with mother back at home, to living as a Navy Sailor / Naval Aviator was a huge change of realism, of responsibility on a much more higher standard. Granting me much more wisdom and knowledge to handle pressing issues at hand, and I wasn't complacent at all, and chose my position to lead there as a Petty officer second class of 10 years career level professional experience. (Naval Aviation Electronics Specialist, and Calibrations Expert.)
This was all about earning them military honors and stripes for most people there as so it seemed, and the experience for me however became quite the opposite in all actuality. I dove deep into the information there, and when I say deep I mean knee deep.
The military manuals or publications as they called it when I was still enlisted, became my bible from which I learned to reconfigure that of my mind in ways many have no clue of. So I was elated to have such a privilege to read more manuals then I ever had read before, especially much more then any other books in high school or college combined in them 10 years.
This true learning success story was what has set me on a course of worded powers, and high tech terminology unlike any other, and so I slowly year after year arrived out of such a lonely state of living in a downward spiral due to so much negativity that once felt suffacating and repulsive, which has surrounded every surface I stepped upon. Amazingly and with the blessing of the man upstairs I was able to regain a new composure, and to rise up like a submarine does on a beautiful October day.
The Empire State
Paving the way to a better future
In order for a person like myself who grew up in an extremely harsh environment, and during that of the 70's, 80's time period, it took a great deal of mind power.This is due to the very well known fact, that growing up in a place such as the South Bronx ("70's the bronx is burning" wikipedia) in New York City, spelled almost sudden doom for most youth back then, and especially during the crack phase when drug dealing was like a rash disease, and kids were getting killed left and right from random gun fire in the street.
You couldn't walk outside a day to feel safe and just felt like you were living in a war zone out there in the Bronx, with burnt abandoned buildings all over the place and it was drug infested. For me it surely was a war zone much of the times. Now, don't get me wrong, not everyone there were criminals, but it felt like as time went onwards more and more people were giving in to trying there hands at criminal activity, and so there was really nowhere too turn to without running into gang related violence, a hellfire of bullets from tech nines, and automatic weapons, and it was no joke!
Fully participating in the good playing of sports such as skateboarding, basketball, table hockey, bowling, billiards, swimming, and running has actually been the means as well to avoid any and all negativity from the outdoor environments I've had experienced living in daily, anywhere from having to dodge bullet's on a skateboard to running for dare life, from bullies in many neighborhoods besides my very own, motivated me to participate even more in sports.
I earned my badges and stripes but it wasn't as important as my education, and meeting good people who cared
Surviving almost certain defeat
Yes I survived such a battle, but it wasn't easy at all I had to have the inner strength to resist all of the peer pressure at hand, to do something illegal, I had to be determined to use my mind and telekinetic abilities to ward off evil gestures, and whispers in my ears by strangers who were simply lurking to steal from me, to take my money which I didn't have none actually. Most of us in my old neighborhoods were broke like a joke. So living in such a hectic environment as that and surviving it, isn't easy at all no way no how.
Luckily I was fully armed with intelligence, which was handed down to me from the man upstairs, and all the positive influence in my life had come from my grandfather, my mother, my loving and caring dad, and even my step dad joined in on the positive vibes we had been mustering up against the hatred that lurked outdoors helping neighborhood children do good deeds, and learn to have fun in good ways.
Fitness, health and education go hand and hand today!
The unseen powers of education spells good health
Education is the primary factor for uplifting anyone's mind up out of the gutter, or from uncovering for them the truth to certain parameters in their lives, that may have been constructed even before they were born, and potentially as a certain mental trap for them.
Ignorance is that trap that has been widely spread amongst the masses of people worldwide, which is easily shown where people are amused into falling for entertainment, far more then fro learning things of true purpose for them. This poses a huge issue with people from all walks of life, and its almost like a true and living bodily decrepit rotting disease.
People who tend to become educated and reeducated all throughout their lives, from youth till old adulthood, are the very ones who tend to fair off better for the most part, and this is a well known proven fact. When true knowledge and active functioning wisdom is applied to most situations within good reason, these potential life challenges, and or dilemma's suddenly appear to become much more manageable. So education helps people to acquire status in life, and it doesn't have to be that of a monetary value at all, but many due indeed focus on such material needs and wants.
The utmost staying powers of knowledge is undeniable visible when any person seeks to try to advance on things, anything in the human domain of things requires us to learn something, and when you unearth the truth from that of the false, your true potential to succeed in life also begins to realize itself.
This is what I've learned about life, from seeking to acquire a good education, and it is the key reason why I've managed to defeat any and all ignorance, negativity, and wrong doing that others may come up with and muster into the environments from which I've walked in, slept in, and experienced all throughout 37 years living.
