You were born to win!
In spite of your past, your family's troubled legacy, financial woes, anything you are going through, you were born to win!
Your family's history may not have a legacy of "victory," but your future is very bright. You can be the first in your family in several ways:
1. You can be the first to graduate from college; or learn a marketable skill, such as plumbing, carpentry, salesman, secretary, etc. (college is not for everyone).
2. You can be the first to start a business.
3. You can be the first to actually read a whole book of the Bible, or the entire Bible itself.
4. You can be the first one to be promoted on your job.
Pave the way! Don't let the negative forces in your environment convince you that you won't ever win. You were born to win!

Isaiah 54:17: "No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD."
