At the age of nine, I was waiting for my dad to come home so we could go and buy the new bike he promised. I had told everyone about it and was so excited. I stood there waiting with a smile on my face ready to pick it out and ride it around our home.
As the car pulled up into the driveway, my heart dropped when I realized that, yet again, he was drunk and this would never happen. It was this that really made me want to create my own success in life.
