But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation; the moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.

I know a man. He was broken early in life;facing cahllenges that took too much to walk through and therefore chose to walk away. But a start had to happen some how so he chose to start from self. My self; my way; my abilities; my resolve.

It got him somewhere too~the world saw a successful business man. A person respected for his ability to get somewhere in the world and build soemthing from nothing.

But of his own self, this getting somewhere and building something was limited to this self.
