I am a big advocate of being a go-getter and working toward your goals. There’s nothing like setting a goal, working hard to reach it, and celebrating your success. But while we struggle toward our dream life, it’s important to use your story and your success (and failures) to help others (here’s mine).
Many people think that if you haven’t “made it” you can’t help others. Giving back and inspiring someone else can be as easy as talking about your struggles and how you are getting by. You don’t need a lot of money or access or even success to be a blessing to someone else. All you need to be is real and open and honest about your life and you will be able to reach someone else.
