Chapo tip pou McGee's Musings kote mwen te jwenn videyo a echèk. Mèsi pou enspire pòs sa a!
Rarely do I meet a successful person that hasn't had some disastrous failures behind them. Over the years, I've learned to measure my success differently than most. I'm successful because I've got 2 fantastic children who I'm incredibly proud of and who are already showing potential well beyond my achievements at half my age.
Looking back at my life, though, I believe my success has come because of my failures – not despite them. I've got a pretty colorful history and made many bad decisions, but it wasn't until about 5 years ago that I stopped concentrating and trying to improve what I was move nan e yo te kòmanse konnen ki sa mwen te ye gwo nan. Mwen te kòmanse ki antoure tèt mwen ak jan ki jije m 'pou yo epi ki te ede m' afine konpetans mwen olye ke kritike feblès mwen.
In my wake, I've was transfere soti nan yon lekòl segondè, bustèd nan ran nan marin ameriken an, te gen yon divòs, te kòmanse yon koup la konpayi, pèdi yon kay ak relwe timoun mwen yo (de fwa). Nan lòt men an, mwen te kenbe onè-nivo klas nan kolèj, se te yon dekore ak onorab egzeyate Gòlf Gè Veterinè, te responsab pou ap grandi anpil biznis siksè, te gen yon men nan vann yon konpayi entènasyonalman, epi yo te gen yon kay ki an sekirite kòm yon sèl papa ak 2 timoun onèt e kap travay di.
I'm now fortunate enough to help run a growing company that I helped to build the original business plans for. I'm still not wealthy, nor do I care about being so. My family still lives in an apartment. Any money that I have left over each payday goes to my son's tuition or is reinvested in new ventures. As long as I have a happy family and a roof over my head, I'm one happy guy!
Si ou ta mande m 'evènman yo pi gwo sèl ki chanje lavi m', mwen gen de:
- Divòs mwen. Mwen te yon papa ki renmen, men mwen pa janm te montre li jiskaske mwen te fè fas ak posiblite pou pèdi pitit mwen yo. Divòs mwen mete tout lavi mwen nan pèspektiv.
- Demisyon mwen nan yon konpayi. Apre bati revni nan yon konpayi lokal ki te koupe tablo a, yo te mete m 'anba nouvo jesyon ki te panse mwen te yon menas epi mwen te inogire pòt la. Mwen te vin lakay mwen, mwen te chita sou kanape a, epi mwen te rele zanmi Darren Gray ak Pat Coyle.
Pat put me to work immediately and I've never looked back. I also changed my attitude about myself and my worth to a business. I was never an anplwaye ankò, epi kontinye travay avèk ak pou konpayi ki ta anrichi lavi mwen pandan ke mwen te travay anrichi leur.
My advice to any young person is that the sooner you figure out what your strengths are and how to avoid positions or opportunities that don't capitalize on them, the sooner you'll find happiness. With happiness comes success.
