    Now that I have your attention I would like to share this success story with you in hopes that I can somehow inspire you to never give up in whatever you do online or offline. Tyler Perry is one of the richest movie producers out there today. He was once listed in Forbes magazine on the top 10 list of richest and most powerful Hollywood celebrities. There have been a lot of people who just plain out laugh because they think his movies are a waste of time. The bottom line is the guy makes millions every year from one movie and stage play to the next.

    If you look at his story he didn't get to his millionaire status overnight. He used to be homeless. His family even lost all hope in him and told him to get a real job like everyone else in the world but this man was a man on a mission so he refused to listen and let anyone drag him down. One day (he tells this story himself many times) he walked by a store where they had a window displaying a TV where Oprah was on her show talking and she said something very powerful that inspired him. He went from the broke homeless man that he was and got a job and began working saving all his money until he could afford to put together his first stage play.

    It went on like this for many years and he tells people his plays were often time empty because no one knew who he was and he had poor promotion... that is until one day he got noticed through one of his stage plays and was offered to do his first movie. After his first Madea movie he was able to build a name for himself and make many more movies and build his audience as well. When Madea goes to Jail was released a few years ago in theaters I remember reading so many articles from movie critics calling him a joke and saying the movie would suck. The movie ended up being sold out and making it to the number 1 spot at the box office for 2 weeks in a row despite what these Hollywood people said. He also credits a lot of his sales and money and successes from his online sales where he sells his TV shows and movies online through his website.

    Myself personally I am not rich. I am just a broke college student making his way in life trying to study what I can to get myself going with internet marketing. I am not looking to be the next big Tyler Perry, Brad Pitt, or even Angelina Jolie. Yes while it would be nice to be as big as all of them that is not the intent of my post. The intent here is to show you that if you want something bad enough no matter who stands in your way and tries to knock you down or say you will fail that just gives you a million more reasons to stand up and show them that you can do it.

    If Tyler Perry can go from broke homeless man status to one of the richest celebrities and movie producers alive status then I have no doubt that you can achieve your goals in life no matter what the goal is. The goal is to never give up. The goal here is to keep on going no matter how many times you get knocked down on the way to your destination. Just keep on walking. I may not be rich and I may not be famous but I know where I am headed in my life and if I get knocked down 4 times in the process then I will stand up 5 and you should too. Someday I will look back at all this and think wow I used to be new to this and now I can say my hard work has paid off and I hope you can say the same too if you have not already. I am working to learn as much about internet marketing as I can so I can start applying what I learn. That is my main goal right now. Cheers to you all and good luck on your journeys :)

    No one talks about all the millions that fail and DO end up homeless or worse from chasing after their 1% dream, am i saying dont chase your dreams? No just dream with your eyes open and be careful.

    Just like how these rappers glorify selling drugs and how they got rich but what about the people who dont make it big and die selling drugs EVERYDAY? Oh lets not talk about them.

    So then why are you here if you only care about being poor and homeless? The intent of this post is not so people can go out and become a famous celebrity if that is what you think because that is not what my post is about you should have read it again then. My post is to inspire people that no matter what they want to do in life even if they fail that they should have at least tried or keep trying and trying again until they get somewhere in life that makes them happy.

    No ones talking about making millions and no ones talking about being a top paid and really famous celebrity. I am talking about life in general. So many times we get told we can't do it when are you going to take a stand for yourself and say I can do it instead of letting people push you around like this? From the looks of your post it appears you have been pushed down so many times you have no clue how to get back up and I for one was there.

    Growing up in a poor family with a dead beat dad who use to beat me senseless with a belt until I was black and blue all over and then calling me worthless and telling me I was going to be no one because I wasn't worth shit in the world so I might as well give up. I refuse to let the people who bring me down tell me that I am a no one or that I will make it no where.

    The whole intent of this forum (as stated by black hat world) was to provide a success story or journey to help inspire people or to help people understand where you want to be so they can inspire you. I believe that is exactly what I was doing here this whole time. Perhaps you don't want to make it far in life. Perhaps you have no intentions of wanting to be successful but there are plenty of other stories from people here who would love to. So with all due respect the only way is up from here.

    So you can either join us all on an amazing journey to better your success and future or you can stay low down on the ground all alone while the rest of us (that you seem to think might become homeless) will take our chances and TRY. Unless we try we will never know what we could have been. It is simple. I have no idea what drugs and rappers have to do with my post in the first place. As long as someone does something in their life that they like and enjoy doing who am I to stand in their way? I am no one.

    I never said that people were trying to make it big. You completely misunderstood my post and seem to assume that I want people to become the next big Hollywood thing when that is far from the truth. I simply want people to open their eyes to a better possibility of doing something more with their lives. I want people to envision their life and reach for their goals whatever that may be.

    Dream Big - Work Hard - Never Give Up.

    If Tyler Perry inspires you, all the better. Nothing wrong with having a positive role model.

    Best of luck to you! :)

    Will do and I was never going to do anything illegal if that is what you thought. I would never do that but thank you for warning me of something I never had plans to do?
