    What would YOU do if you descended or sank to the socioeconomic bottom? Would YOU give up,

    believing and feeling that all is lost and hopeless or would YOU fight and become more determined to reach the heights socioeconomically?

    I've sunk pretty low and I've never given up.  When that happens it's time to look at yourself and take responsibility for your actions that got you there.  That's the key, take responsibility.  It doesn't matter what people have done to you, you need to look beyond that and focus on building a future.  H.J. Heinz declared bankruptcy 3 times before he made it.  Failure is just a part of life.

    Never give up!
    As cliché as it may sound; "No one knows what tomorrow may bring."
    In my own roller coaster life I've had my share of ups and downs but never stopped believing that tomorrow, next week, next month, or next year was going to be better than today.
    If one has no money they are considered broke but if one has no hope they are considered broken.
    It's important to always have "something" to look forward to in order to build upon and move forward. It's not over until you quit.
    One never knows whom they will meet who has information or contacts that could help them get to the next rung on the ladder.
    Just about every super successful person had a point in their life where it seemed like they would never make it. Maybe they were living in their car, went bankrupt, a major deal fell through, they were conned out of what money they had but they found a way to persist.

    It all depends on personality,culture and environment. Some people are able to fight on regardless of their plight - I'm thinking of the many refugees who end up fleeing their country for one reason or another - they're able to carry on because of their families, others around them, from the kindness of strangers.
    Others succumb through pride and embarrassment. If they lose money gambling or through unfortunate business they may decide enough is enough and do silly things.

    Everyday life for the majority of ordinary folk is about making ends meet, finding food for the table, wanting to save for the future. Most want to fight on, struggle for a better life.

    After the second world war millions here in the UK had nothing - the country was virtually bankrupt - apart from the privileged few - so struggling on was the only alternative. My parents knew terrible hardship but carried on with their love of family and their hopes for a brighter future.I retain their optimism and trust in the future, I know that hard work and sincerity help lay the foundation for future family.

    Struggle is sometimes necessary because that can create character and depth.

    What did Beckett the playwright say? Fail, fail again, fail better. In other words, learn from mistakes if possible, work hard, look for strategies, create opportunity, fight.
