I’ve had all four of the distractions you list in my life. And that is what they are… Distractions, temporary conditions subject to change anytime you decide to focus on what you have rather than what you don’t. It’s your choice.
Opportunity without the capacity to capture it is an illusion. Do not live in the world of illusions. “If only (insert bad stuff in my life) weren’t so, then I could be successful” is a victim’s mentality. You cannot be a victim as long as you have choices.
Start from where you are. Find a need that matches your present capacity and fill it. As you learn more, apply it. Develop your capacity in the areas that hold you back from doing what you want to do.
