Code Blue: An Oath to the Badge and Gun Series

The Code Blue Series somehow became something bigger than me. The best way to describe it is looking at the world now and what’s going on, ...

The reality of things when people say they want success, it’s the money, cars, home and traveling. Most don’t even know how they’re going to get there. They just know that they want to be successful and they think that the materialistic things will make them happy. They forget it’s doing what you love and giving to others is what makes and completes your happiness.
The next aspect of this blog is people aren’t truthfully willing to do the work to get to that place of success. Granted my definition of success is totally different than others, most have a generalization of what they consider success and it’s the social status aspect of it.

Most will say they want to be rich but don’t have a clear vision of how they’ll get there. They haven’t carved out their journey and the amount of work, time, patience, energy and effort they’ll have to give to get there. It may take a year, 2 years, 5years,10 years, who really knows.

A good amount of people want to be rich and not have to work. Granted most people who want that have worked the majority of their lives so I get it. For any millennial who says that, I just laugh internally in my head because that’s really a false sense of reality and how the world works.

My parents are in their mid-50s so to get them retired before the age of 60, I have to do way more work and doing what needs to be done to get there. The crazy part about all of this is I don’t want a big house, I want a townhome. I don’t want a Bentley, I want a Genesis G80 and/or an Alfa Romeo Quadrifiglio. They’re nice cars, nothing extravagant and they’re simple. 

I want my parents to be able to wake up every morning and not have a care in the world but to enjoy life. I want to travel with them and go to different places and enjoy life a little (and in between that work on more content). There’s this meticulous plan in my head and I’ve got it all mapped out. 

I know that I’ll get there, it’s just waiting on that moment. To me, I’m already successful and have accomplished a lot. But the competition with myself keeps me going. Maybe that’s the athletic/competitive aspect of me growing up. Believe me, I talk to plenty of people who want to be rich but have no vision of any sort of how they’re getting there.

Then there are those that just hope and pray they hit the lotto. You have a better chance of doing what you’re passionate about and getting to a good place financially than playing the lotto from 18 years old until you die trying to win that. That’s the reality of it which is why I don’t gamble at all. I’ll take gambles with this writing thing before I give the lottery or casino my hard earned money. 

So if you’re working on things and trying to get to a place where you will do whatever you love for the rest of your life, just know that most of the people around you aren’t doing half of what you’re doing. 

Be good and accomplish your goals.
