When I was a kid I loved the movie RAD. You remember, it was the one with the awesome BMX bikes. Anyways, I would sit around my room dreaming about having one of those bikes. I asked my mom & dad if they would buy me one and they quickly told me NO. They said if I wanted the bike I would have to buy it myself. . The thought of owning one consumed me so I hatched a plan to get me an exact replica of the movie bike. . Step 1 Convince my mom to front me $40.00 and take me to the store to buy bulk candy. Laffy Taffy, Suckers, Dip Sticks Ect. . Step 2 Take my backpack full of candy to school and sell it to all the kids for double what I paid. . Step 3 Pay my mom back her $40.00 and repeat until I had enough for the bike. . My little candy business took off more that I anticipated. It grew so fast that I had to hire other kids to work for me and help me sell the candy. Life was great & eventually I made enough money to buy the bike. So I bought the bike and every kid in my neighborhood envied my new bike. Especially Jason the neighborhood bully. . Well one day I came outside & my bike was gone. Jason had taken it and told me that it was now his bike. He Deebo'd my bike! And Jason was huge & one of the meanest kids around. I ran home crying & I told my mom that he stole my bike & that I needed her to buy me a new one. . She said "son...go outside and get back your bike and don't come home until you have it because if you allow them to take your bike and push you down and bully you...that for the rest of your life you will live remembering that they walked all over you and took what was rightfully yours." She then kicked me out of the house and forced me to go confront Jason. . And even though I was scared & hesitant (& I got my ass kicked) I got my bike back. It was the greatest lesson of my life because it taught me to stand up for myself and perceive each situation as an opportunity to grow. Like Jim Rohn once said..."You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.": I CAME FROM NOTHING. SO I CAN NEVER LOSE EVERYTHING IS A WIN NSTAGRAM CLEVERINVESTOR When I was a kid I loved the movie RAD.
