Don’t Boast of Being “Self-made”

My story is not one of “rags to riches” nor absolute privilege. It is one of sacrifice and gratitude: The sacrifices of my parents, fore-parents, and the many honorable men and women who have believed in me enough to give me a chance in life.

As an expression of my gratitude, I live each day in the consciousness of a debt that can only be repaid by helping others – whenever, and wherever possible.

My dream is to impact nations; and thankfully, I am surrounded by some amazing people who are committed to making this a reality. So here’s some advice: Don’t boast of being “self-made” – for we all need someone to believe in us; and when you have attained your success, be sure to give back.
