You owe me nothing!

Hi all,

today's topic has a lot to do with what you owe to people and what people owe you.

There are some things that are a bit like a thorn in my side that really really sting me.

To say the name: ENTITLEMENT

I hate it!

Many many people think that other people owe them something.
The truth though, nobody owes you anything, and unless you're in debt in some way you don't owe anything to anyone either.

We had to learn this the hard way. Coming to Australia with nothing but a backpack, not being ENTITLED to govenment support and having nothing to fall back on is THE GREATEST ASSET you can have.

I said it before: If I don't work, I don't eat! Simple.

Australia owes me nothing, because I chose to come here. I made a decision to leave Germany behind to pursue my luck in Straya.
This is how I see it. If I do not have enough to pay my bills or to  put food on the table, I didn't do what I'm supposed to do to make that happen.
It's not the governments fault, they didn't bring me here.
I own it wholly!

This is awesome, because if things turn bad, there is no one I can blame, it's on me!

Of course you don't want to have to punch yourself in the gut, so you make sure your ends do meet and at the end of the day, you can have food on your table.

Not to have a safety net is the greatest gift you can have! (unless you have built that safety net yourself)

Not to have a safety net is the greatest gift you can have!

This makes you creative, it forces you to come up with ways to make money to get by. You tend to get creative. We took jobs that were far from glamorous to get by. We hated every second of it, but we also knew that this wouldn't be forever. We'd evolve and work our way out of it.

And we did!

This phase of what I like to call "eating shit" has probably been the single mist important to me personally. 


Because it builds character not to be "the one". Once you get through it, you look back and you can see how it all makes sense.

Once your wounds heal, you won't be the same person, you will have grown. And a lot.

So why do people think they ought be given things on a silver platter?

Honestly, I don't know. Maybe it's because they've had it too easy and have always been given the cool stuff by their parents. Or  maybe they were born into rich families.

Whatever it is! Make no mistake! No one owes you shit! You want it - you make it happen.

I am a firm believer that hardship is a gift! You turn the problem into an asset!

Don't be that spoiled brat in disguise.

Be a character person, work hard and earn it! 
Only then can you truly appreciate and be proud.

Because you'd deserve it!

Until next time - be awesome!
