Stop complaining and being a victim. Take control. Be smart. Work hard. Control your future. ------------------------------------- Welcome to Car Talk.
This is not talking about cars. This is talking inside of a car. Today's topic is about realizing how much control you really have over your future. I see people, all the time, that are convinced that there's something against them,
or something is for someone else, and they really seem to miss the big picture that you are in so much control of what happens to you in your life, and in your future, and yes, bad things happen to good people,
and yes, good things happen to bad people, and some people are born into a super wealthy family, but for the 99.9% of people around this country, the world is a different picture. Around this country, you have a lot of control over your future.
You can work really hard. Some people choose to not work hard, and that's perfectly fine, if they're content, but if you want to think the system's against you, you might want to consider working hard, because for every vocation, every industry,
every pastime, there's all the level of talent, which, and yes, you can adjust that, maybe, by a notch or two. I could play basketball and practice really, really hard. I might get better. I'm never going to be LeBron James. I guess talent's a variable,
but there's no doubt about it. Everybody at the peak of their professional, personal careers, they all have worked their butts off. They work, work, work to improve and get better, and exceed where someone else does not exceed at, or succeed where someone does not succeed at,
and people that want to play the victim game, and they'll get the complaining, the victim game. Someone has something against this, and that's true. I'm not oblivious of the fact that race, sexuality, gender, all these things have an impact on how someone might end up, at impact,
but that is not the only factor. That's like saying because the sun comes up, it's going to be hot that day. You know it's not going to be that way. It's going to be warmer, but that doesn't mean it's going to be hot,
or it's going to be cold. It's just a factor, and you have controls over lots of other factors. You have entirely control over how hard you work, and you'd be surprised if you are the hardest working person in the room,
and outwork all those around you, regardless of anything else. If you're the person that outworks everyone around you, you'll be amazed at how much farther you'll get in whatever your endeavor is. You are in control of your future.
Don't be a complainer, don't be a victim, take control, harness, work your butt off, make things happen for yourself, and that is realizing how in control of your future you really are. Car Talk, Tyler Douthitt.
