Bill Gates | Lucky, Genius, or Both?

We all know someone who was born with the “silver spoon” in their mouth. Their parents drive fancy cars, their parents have a fancy house, and their parents work important jobs. However, you need to realize that these are the possessions and titles of your peers’ parents and not of your peers.

            Bill Gates, was born with that silver spoon.

His mother was a prominent businesswoman who was able to get Bill an opportunity to help IBM build one of their first computers. His father was a high-powered attorney who had been credited with saving Starbucks from a near collapse.  

 It would have been very easy for Bill to slack off in school, live off of his parent’s success, and be one of those people we all know too well. However, Bill Gates decided not to be a trust fund baby, but instead decided to utilize his parent’s skills in order to help him build Microsoft.

The point I’m making is this.

Life is not easy,

and changing your life will be harder, but not taking those chances is a bigger risk than not taking them at all!

 

            “If you do what is easy your life will be hard. If you do what is hard, your life will be easy.”

-Les Brown

 

 

Happy Slacking,
