Young Black and gifted

This is one thing that I am so happy that I possess. But you know the thing behind the title of this post is my belief about myself. Because I have been told that I am gifted. Honestly I would not be in the position I am in if I did not work hard.
Because a lot of people like to think there current life circumstance determines how they will turn out. But you know you are able to alter those circumstances. If you come from a bad neighborhood then you do the opposite of the negativity that exists and gets done in your environment.
You are better than that no matter what ethnicity you are. So stop using whatever you can as an excuse. Life comes to those who get out and hustle. Not to those who cry, complain and wish for success.
