To the average person my life doesn’t sound that “fun.” I don’t watch television, I don’t drink, and I don’t do a whole lot during the week besides work and exercise. I might be sacrificing my ability to throw on my favorite pair of cargo shorts and hit up the local dive bar for some cheap Tuesday night Bud Lights, but I’m reaping far greater rewards down the road. I’m on track to graduate college debt free, I’m pretty ripped, I have an insane work ethic that transfers over to all aspects of my life, and I’m able to indulge in luxuries whenever I want to. Without trying to sound arrogant, I think that I’m on track to being successful in all aspects of my life.
