Starting from where you are can be quite difficult but not impossible. Plenty of people have been able to carve out a place in this world even though they started from the bottom of the barrel. You can do the same. You can put in the work to get to where you want to be. Take the stories of J.K. Rowling or Oprah for instance. They didn’t have much and look at them now. These are just key reasons why you indeed can succeed from this very place you are starting in.
