Rarely do I meet a successful person that hasn't had some disastrous failures behind them. Over the years, I've learned to measure my success differently than most. I'm successful because I've got 2 fantastic children who I'm incredibly proud of and who are already showing potential well beyond my achievements at half my age.
Looking back at my life, though, I believe my success has come because of my failures – not despite them. I've got a pretty colorful history and made many bad decisions, but it wasn't until about 5 years ago that I stopped concentrating and trying to improve what I was hampe ka mme ka qala ho tseba hore na ke eng e kholo ho. Ke ile ka qala ho potoloha le batho ba neng ba nkahlola le ho nthusa ho hlophisa tsebo ea ka ho fapana le ho nyatsa mefokolo ea ka.
In my wake, I've was fetisoa Ke tsoa sekolong se phahameng, ke ile ka hlaseloa boemong ba Sesole sa Metsing sa Amerika, ka hlalana, ka qala lik'hamphani tse 'maloa, ka lahleheloa ke ntlo mme ka fallisetsa bana ba ka (habeli). Ka lehlakoreng le leng, ke ne ke tšoere limaraka tsa koleche, ke ne ke le Gulf War Vet e khabisitsoeng ebile e hlomphehile, ke eena ea ikarabellang bakeng sa ho holisa likhoebo tse ngata tse atlehileng, ke bile le letsoho la ho rekisa k'hamphani machabeng, hape ke bile le lehae le sireletsehileng ke le lesoha ntate ea nang le bana ba 2 ba tšepahalang le ba sebetsang ka thata.
I'm now fortunate enough to help run a growing company that I helped to build the original business plans for. I'm still not wealthy, nor do I care about being so. My family still lives in an apartment. Any money that I have left over each payday goes to my son's tuition or is reinvested in new ventures. As long as I have a happy family and a roof over my head, I'm one happy guy!
Haeba u ne u ka mpotsa ketsahalo e le 'ngoe e kholo ka ho fetisisa e fetotseng bophelo ba ka, ke na le tse peli:
- Tlhalo ea ka. Ke ne ke le ntate ea lerato empa ha ho mohla nkileng ka e bontša ho fihlela ke tobane le monyetla oa ho lahleheloa ke bana ba ka. Tlhalo ea ka e behile bophelo bohle ba ka ka leihlo le letle.

Pat put me to work immediately and I've never looked back. I also changed my attitude about myself and my worth to a business. I was never an mosebeletsi hape, mme ke tsoelepele ho sebetsa le lik'hamphani tse ka natefisang bophelo ba ka ha ke ntse ke sebetsa ho ntlafatsa tsa bona.
My advice to any young person is that the sooner you figure out what your strengths are and how to avoid positions or opportunities that don't capitalize on them, the sooner you'll find happiness. With happiness comes success.
