In our lives we’re pressured to be rich and wealthy when we’re older. Whether we are pressured to or want to be something for our own benefit, I’m wondering if people want for themselves or what others want for them. Are you willing to work and sacrifice other aspects of your life to be successful? People who are successful in the things they do are Stephen Curry, Beyonce, Dr.Dre.
Dr. Dre is a rapper and entrepreneur. He is the founder of the Beats corporation. After his deal with apple, Dre sold over $700 million worth of Beats headsets equipment. Stephen Curry’s hardwork and determination contributes to his performance in games. As well as his passion for the game of basketball and his eagerness to succeed is displayed in pregame drills where he practices dribbling and shooting drills. Some may argue that he works harder than Lebron James. Everyone loves Beyonce. You can't question how much work and effort she puts into her dance routines and performance on stage. The passion for their careers, their determination to be the best, and their sacrifice, are the keys to success.
There are news headlines, stories and movies of successful people but where do you find yourself? Can you sacrifice your vices for what you hope to accomplish? I have my friends with me who are here to tell me what it takes for them to be successful.
