To make more money: Pick up a second job. Cut costs.
Unless you are handicapped i.e. blind, deaf, etc. or homeless... you shouldn't be complaining. Be ecstatic that everyday you wake up... you and your family are healthy (I sincerely hope this is the case).

In a nutshell.
-Attitude needs to change
-Cut costs and pay when you HAVE the money. Avoid extras.
-Learn from your mistakes.
Layout a plan for your future, maybe go back to school and enter a growing field in todays market. (electronics, med??)
Planning is KEY to anything, no matter how small.

You are just at the beginning stages of your life, you have to treat life and business like riding a bicycle, look ahead not in front or you'll fall. First change your attitude, it's not about money it's about being happy. There is always opportunities, extra hard work will get you there. Just go after it, no one will give it to you. But I promise you will look back someday and pay any price to be with your loved ones.

In all honesty you're not a loser, you just feel under appreciated !-Brendan

I was probably in that rut when I was about 18 of all ages, not married but didn't see a future at Wells Fargo Bank... so I moved and went to college somewhere else... found out that moving was the best thing I had ever done. It totally changed my perspective; seeing how others outside of San Francisco live, meeting new friends that allowed me to grow as a person. Of course moving into Silicon Valley in 1984 had a big part in how my life would change as well.
The home of high-tech has so many stories of those that just started doing something in a garage or home and years later blossomed into H-P, Google, Yahoo, etc.... but none of the founders did it for fame and fortune... they just wanted to do something they LOVED.
Below is a commencement speech given by Steve Jobs at Stanford Univ. - try not to let the Chinese characters bother you but listen to him. I just heard this yesterday after my brother sent it to me and I've book marked it now because I found his stories profound and enlightening... funny though, like him, I took calligraphy and never finished college but obviously, he accomplished a lot more!!!!

With a post like this, an attitude like that and no optimism in life, yes you are a loser.
Grow some balls, appreciate your wife and child, be grateful for what you have, because guess what? You are better off than millions of people around the world.
Want change, heres a good quote.

First of all, there are some amazing posts in this thread and I hope you've found some inspiration and motivation getting through every one of those. As for Glenn Beck, I didn't know him before, but watched a weird documentary about the holocaust after reading about him in this thread. Majoring in History, it just felt like a horrible waste of time for me, since there there was so much BS presented. Or at least how they presented it and what they tried to bring across.
