Who Do You Want To Be?

When I was a kid I often heard my parents, grandparents, teachers, and friends ask me, "Who do you want to be when you grow up?" What they were really asking was what type of career did I want to pursue. But a job doesn't make you who you are. A job only allows you to have provision for a life that you desire. If you want money to have nice things, you must invest in personal development to get you in position for receiving those things. If you seek comfort and are willing to forfeit provisions, you need to realize that choice to be comfortable limits your ability to financially prosper. If you value material things over relationships, you must realize those choices also have consequences you may later regret. Stuff, jobs, or relationships won't define you or add to your personal value. Your character always defines you. Respect, even self-respect, is earned and must be cultivated. It requires knowing who you want to be and then seeking to become it.
