True you can change your life by changing your thinking but be aware that what ever overshadowed your old life can overshadow your new life as well you have to completely change everything in your life to make the new you.

Finally someone saw your potential you certainly never got appreviated or loved from your father. That part is heartbreaking but his being tough and demanding on you made you strong and powerful. You would suceed at any profession because of your work ethics and determination to do your best. To succeed to be someone who survived. And changed your thinking in a powerful way. Be proud of your accomplishments and inspired at what and who you have become. Ty for sharing your story. May you continue to be that bright star shining and for the mentor that had a huge part in bringing out your confidence in yourself.

It is good that he came to believe in himself but, he always carried the lesson his dad first taught him, you can do better and he did. Maybe his dad didnt know how to show love and affection, maybe his father had never had that from his father, we dont know. At the end of the day how we live our life is up to us.

I made sure my girls knew they could achieve any thing I was always at school for them. They learned a good working habit and are now great workers 2 have family’s and now I’m teaching my grandkids the same along with their moms. My mom was sorta like this mans dad. I never felt good enough or loved. But I found God st a young age , and prayed for Him to get me out of there. He did and I was in a home for 3 years learning to be loved and taken care of. But I worked also that’s all I knew. This is a great story that a lot of people need to hear.

Wow, thanks, I felt like I was stuck in a funk, like trapped with no way out. I know now I have to change my mind set and live up to my own standards. This video inspired that. Thank you so much.

My life was like his. Worse. My life was about survival, and about endurance. I wish I had been blessed with an advocate. This is a touching life story. Today I have all the comforts of life. I've been blessed with a family, but that built in, ever driven identity which was driven into me has never been changed.
