    You feel like your stuck in a rut and wondering if things are going to change.

    You see that your friends or acquaintances have "better" lives.

    You are wondering if things are going to change.

    Well, the truth of the matter is that you have the choice to either change the situation or remain in that rut.

    Many people think that because they followed a set path; going to college and getting a degree; that all of a sudden that "magic" carpet ride to a full time job should appear for them.

    And if it doesn't happen, then they get bitter and then wonder why they aren't getting the same luck of attaining that "full time" job as their friends.

    I hate to break it to you: no one is entitled to anything

    The problem with our society is that we are expected instant gratification and when they see that "instant success" story, they want to find out the formula of how to achieve that same success in less time.

    You don't know the amount of hard work that person put into getting to the success that they are at right now.

    The truth of the matter is that you have to work hard and earn it because when you do, then the success will come to you.

    In the end, it will be much sweeter for you to enjoy.
