嗨 大家好 我叫Chris Collins
Hey, guys. My name is Chris Collins.
Welcome to my garage and welcome to this Youtube channel.
Umm, I need to to set the record straight immediately though
My goal here is not to be your guru;
my goal is not to sell you some stupid coaching package;
my goal is not about to brag about the things that I have
Because three years ago, I didn’t have shit.
My goal here is to basically help you understand
that you can do amazing things as long as you believe in yourself.
I am not perfect; this channel is not gonna be perfect;
my mouth is not gonna be perfect; these videos are not gonna be perfect.
But in order for me to show you
that you can turn your life a little bit,
in the positive direction,
you need to first understand where I came from.
So, welcome to my life.
So right about now, I’m guessing you guys are wondering
why am I showing you fancy cars;
why am I showing you fancy houses;
why am I showing you this right after I just told you
I’m not here to brag about things.
Let me tell you why I’m doing this.
Society, unfortuately, has taught us somewhere along the line
that we are who we are
based solely off of what we drive, where we live,
what our bank account says and how much money we make every year.
And I’m here to tell you that that’s absolutely garbage.
You are who you are
based on the impact you leave behind when you are done.
For those of you that think my money came from my daddy,
um, you know, I’m sorry to disappoint you.
When I was two years old, my father killed himself.
呃 你也知道 我并不寻求怜悯
And er…You know, I don’t seek pity.
I don’t play the victim.
I believe that we are dealt the hand we are dealt for a reason.
After my father took his life,
being a child in the state of Utah
(in) the 80s and even in the early 90s,
was very difficult.
你知道的 作为一个孩子 他不会懂宗教之类的东西
You know, as a child, you don’t understand certain things like religion.
It’s difficult for me to understand why my friends…
why I wasn’t allowed to go and play at their house
and I wasn’t allowed to play at their house
because I wasn’t Mormon.
I didn’t understand what that meant at that time.
Apparently, my mom did and so she moved us
to Boston, Massachusetts.
When I was 16, my grandmother came down with a very rare form of cancer.
And about 6 months later, she was gone.
I think it took our entire family by surprise.
It took me through a world of darkness and depression
that I didn’t even know how to…to deal with.
I struggled through life very quickly.
I shut down. I became an alcoholic,
yes, at the age of sixteen and half.
I barely made through high school.
The only reason I did it is
cos I knew she would be incredibly dissappointed if I didn’t.
And from that moment on,
rather than continuing in a downward spiral,
I decided to join the Air Force.
When I got out of the military, I had a plan.
I feel like we all have a plan at some point in our life.
When I got to the state that I’m gonna open my shop in,
I found out that someone somehow managed to rack up 27 felony accounts,
哥们 我在说分赃 侠盗猎车手！
guys, I’m talking distribution, I’m talking Grand Theft Auto,
I’m talking terrible terrible crimes,
in my social security number which hindered me
and knocked me right back on my ass.
You know, after I got over being an alcoholic yet again
from this guy ruining my life.
I didn’t care what I had to go through
to change my life and make it better.
I got in the car. I packed up what I could.
I put my brother in the other car,packed up with his car what we could.
And we literally hit the road on the 43-hour straight shot
from Boston, Massachusetts back to Salt Lake City
where at least we had little pieces of family
if we possibly needed it.
Kinda give you an idea of where….
where I started from.
I don’t know if you guys can see this.
I don’t even like having a camera around here to be honest with you,
but this right here is the house that I lived in.
When I first got here,
这是一个……嗯 哥们 我不认为
it’s a…. you know, I don’t think, guys, that people
have to stay where they, umm, where they start.
I think that we all have a choice.
And it didn’t take very long to me, living in that house and in this neighborhood
to… to realize that I didn’t want to be there anymore.
I hope you guys understand that you have the same choice every day.
No matter what. Doesn’t matter what situation is.
You don’t like your life? You can change it.
If you don’t like your house, you can move.
Find a way to make it happen.
but it’s only gonna happen if you actually take it serious
and apply a lot of effort.
So what does it take to be successful?
It takes understanding that you deserve it.
I can tell you right now that you deserve it.
I can tell you right now.
Get up off the couch. Turn off the TV. Turn off this video.
Go out and find something you are passionate about.
Just go do it!And if you fall down, get up!
If you get up, you can move forward.
If you quit, you are stuck.
There is nothing wrong with being comfortable in life;
there is nothing wrong with being mediocre in life.
You’re just not allowed to bitch about it.
The moment you complain about where your life is,
you need to wake up and realize that your life is where it is
because those are the choices that you make every day.
The friends that you have,
you listen to their opinions every day.
And if your friends don’t have what you want;
if your friends don’t drive what you wanna drive.
if they are not paying your bills;
if they are not building your future,
why are you listening to your friends in the first place?
Go out and get what’s yours.
It starts with YOU.
