I believe that I can accurately assume that we all want to be successful. Isn't that why we're here? However, have you actually stopped to think about what success would really mean?

However, we struggle so much with not having enough money we don't get to enjoy much outside of ourselves either. But we have each other and we spend a lot of time together. I don't want to lose that.
