Asides these compromises and changes, the main problem our dreams face is our attitude to life.
The truth is nobody owes you, so stop living a lie, stop feeling entitled; your uncle, your brother, your old friends, they can help if they want to but it is not your right to get help from them, so if they don't, you can't hold it against them. You would have to help yourself
Keep pushing the hustle is real, so is the reward.
You can't keep what you are not ready for; money, relationship, opportunities, love, greatness, Fame etc. The power to make what you have lasting depends on how ready you are for it.
At 24years I had so many things on my mind, some of my friends were lucky to have had life figured out before 25 but for me I wasn't that lucky.

There is nothing special about you! Yes and I mean it. You have a head, two arms and two legs just like everyone else. You are just like anyone you know, you have seen or read about.
When i look at myself, I don't see bundle of mistakes, I see tons of lessons designed to make me better and if I choose to put everyone of them into use then I see a champion emerging from the crumbles.
