Why me?

So here is my storie. I'm a 15 year old boy who lives in Finland, Helsinki.. So far, this year has been a total disaster. Yes i know some times people have bad moments and all.. But this, i thought i will atleast succeed even in a single thing, but no.

in my religion, we are forbidden to smoke. Early spring I got caught smoking.. 3 times! I really wanted to stop. I got beat up by my dad. I live alone with my dad who is working allday long, i havent seen my mother for 3 years, and may not see her ever again. My studies werent going pretty well, i had to pay about 300 to my friend for crashing hes bike, it was a mistake. I got threatend by my friends mate that i will get beaten up and steal something from my house value of 500 because i was framed (Long storie). I dont know anything about my friends, as if they would think im not in this world anymore.

I'm only 15, and i wanted to get a moped license and obviously a moped, i got a brand new moped and then I applied for the license, wich only cost 50 total and you only need pass this 15 question test, which is very easy. Ok so the law was changing 1 of june, so i will have to pay about 500 to get the license and pass 5 different tests! so it will take about 4 months. So i had about 2 weeks to pass the test before the law will change. So one test costs 26, i didn't pass the test the first time, not even the second time! people were laughing on me, so i got a third time the last time (31 of may).. I didn't pass it. after that we paid 500 for the school for 4 months after that i had the fourth time the test.. i didn't pass it. I really got shocked about it, so after that i though i could just go for a short ride just a small ride around my neighbourhood (Only 5km) Guess what? The police caught me, i got a 200 fine and my licence got delayed for 6months. I just spent nearly 4000 on nothing.. nothing.

Yes i know it isnt't a sad storie, but i'm only 15 and a few years back, i had a future.. now, i dont have anything. Thanks for reading.

Dude, that's a complete bummer, I know. But seriously, just stop feeling bad and study for the damn test. It simply is not that hard , but you can't expect just to pass if you try again and again. After all, those tests are there to make you learn things that you will actually need when driving your moped so that you would not kill yourself, or even worse- someone else. Just concentrate and work hard to get what you want and everything will work out.

Think yourself lucky you were able to afford 4000 Euros. Most people could not afford that.
Please do NOT get any kind of driving licence. If you cannot answer 15 simple questions after 4 attempts we will all be much safer if you do not drive any more.

On the other hand, it would be great if you got a scooter license and rode the wrong way on the freeway.

I'm on my 5th attempt for the car driving license... every time, something stupid happends, with the instructor next to me, I drive perfectly, but with the police man, I always screw up, always, the instructor says "you should pass, your driving is excelent" and then I drive without mistakes for 10-20 minutes (the test takes 30 minutes here) until i screw up. Once I drove for 28 minutes and then screwed it up...

Jonathan,Truly inspiring! And I rellay, rellay, rellay needed to hear what you have to say.I have been experiencing exactly what you express in your video. Asking many of the same questions (though not to the depth you provide!). Alternating between cycles of doubt and hope.You hit home on so many fronts, that it felt like you were talking directly to me. You are good! I have identified what I realize are Passion + Profits ideas, and came to you after having read some business plan articles by Harvard Business (yawn). While these provide the concepts and physical tools, they did not provide the spiritual and mental direction I needed. And that was sucking out my passion and increasing my fear.I see how you have applied exactly what you teach to your life. And how I have been approaching this half-assed (due to doubts) but also ass-backwards. As *I* am my business plan. And by investing in myself, I can answer a resounding Yes! to those Five Key Questions.I started out in one place before I watched this video, and now am at a completely different, much more positive place. More to come.With sincere thanks for sharing this gift,Alison
