Am I an Average Person?

As I was browsing around a message board this morning, I ran across a question from someone in regards to Ameriplan. They wanted to hear what others had to say & any personal experiences from those who have done it.

One of the responses to that questions has been bugging me ever since. He stated, "I tried it about 4 months ago, and it appeared to be a great company that offers something that most of us need in regards to health care. I actually continued to stay a member in the plan with the dental because my family does need it. But I found that it just wasn't something that any average person could do and earn much money at, if any at all." He continues on for quite a while but essentially he ends up saying that it took work, you had to be someone willing to talk to people, and learn ways of marketing, and attend training calls that were every night almost, and unless you possessed any special skills it just wasn't possible for the average, everyday person, like himself, to be able to earn any money.

Okay, so I suppose it's a great thing that he still in many ways supports Ameriplan and what is offered, I mean he did continue on with the benefits plan. But really what is it that determines who is or isn't average?

I don't consider myself super extraordinary in any way. (Okay, maybe there's a couple things about me that make me special...lol) But really, I feel as though I am no different than anyone else. Yes, we all have our own separate issues that we have had to deal with and we were all raised with different beliefs, in different households, and we do have our own unique beings. But how would you determine who is average?

And just because a person is born into poverty & one into a life of privilege & wealth, that has no bearings on whether or not that person will ever be magnificent in life.

I believe that we all possess the tools needed to become successful in life no matter what that may be. It's just whether or not a person is willing to open up & learn the skills needed to do so.

I'm just like the next single mother of 3 who has had moments in life that she still can't believe she lived through, someone who has had her fair share of ups and downs. I'm the typical boy scout mom/soccer mom/child servant-maid and all the above. I am no different than so many others who are just trying to enjoy what life has to offer, raise her kids and do all that she can so that they can have every opportunity available in life. I put my pants on one leg at a time. (okay, maybe there are some of you who attempt to do it both at the same time, especially now since it's always fun to go against the norm...)

What I'm saying is don't assume that just because someone is successful at something, or is where you wish you were right now, don't think that it's because they have some special powers. It's not magic. And I'm sure if you were able to rewind the years and look back at their lives, you just might realize that they aren't much different than you are.
