I am a true believer that everything is possible; as long as you are willing to learn, stay positive, are highly motivated and persistent enough to clear the hurdles and the obstacles that will come your way. My objective is to teach, encourage, guide, but principally to inspire you to take that initial step.
At the age of 22, immediately upon completion of my three years of mandatory service (as a paratrooper) in the Israeli Defense Force (IDF), I arrived in the U.S.A. for the very first time. It was a hot July 6, 1986. I had come from Israel with $500 in my pocket and enough English for a simple conversation. I had no formal college education, or degree, or trade. I did have tons of motivation. I was going to make it in The Land of Opportunity.
The first few months were a culture shock. Everything felt too big compared to what I was used to in my small country. At times there were so many new things, it was overwhelming. Different food, cars, license plates, television and radio programs, habits and more.
But I had to drag myself out of my comfort zone. Not to merely survive, but to thrive and be a successful young man. First of all, pragmatism became close friend. I took almost any job I was offered and had to be a quick study and be good at it (no complaining). I was grateful for every opportunity I was given. Working hard, being creative at work and sticking to a very tight budget was my strategy...avoid tempting places, where I could waste my very hard-earned money (bars, clubs or fancy restaurants).
I needed to save money every month and put it aside for future business investments like real estate or perhaps a college fund. This strategy is what I recommend, if you intend to walk a similar route on your journey.
I worked very hard jobs with very little pay. Deciding to focus on the pros instead of the cons is what got me through it.
The moral of the story is simple.
In order to succeed, you must be ready to make concessions. Things are not going to be easy or necessarily go well. You must be mentally tough to keep doing things you don’t necessarily like for extended periods of time. Keep going, till you reach your next objective and start all over again. Begin your next journey. You will need to recognize opportunity when it comes your way. Opportunities are there all the time. Don’t be scared to do things you’ve never done before. Be brave! Take some calculated risks! Have faith! Think positive! That is the only way!
