657 | You can only have one.

I was watching a TEDtalk on Youtube yesterday. It was from an author I was currently reading. It was great.

A 3rd wave feminist complaining video showed up in the list of video recommendations on the right hand side, I’m not sure why

Normally, I can withstand the temptation to watch such time sucks…

I watched it.

About halfway through I got a text and picture from a friend of mine. He had just gotten up the mountain to Machu Picchu.

I’ve talked about this friend before. He is the one that started and owns a family bank, all with the proceeds of his freedom business.

I asked him if it was hard getting to the Inca ruin site, one of the new seven wonders of the world. I had heard it can be a real pain.

I’m not a world traveler, so I only retain the nightmare stories when it comes to world travelling.

He said, “Ya, stuff went wrong and I loved every minute of it all. I’m standing in Machu Picchu!”

I had just watched a video of a screeching harpy complaining about not getting enough free stuff from others and here is my friend living his dreams because he worked his ass off creating value for others.

He wasn’t born rich, he built his wealth by creating value, rather the demanding resources from others.

It made me think of something, you can be a victim or a hero, but you can’t be both.

You get to decide which way you will live, but you can’t have both.

Victim or hero?
