The road to success is not straight
The road to success is not straight.
There is a curve called Failure,
A loop called Confusion,
Speed bumps called Friends,
Red lights called Enemies,
Caution lights called Family,
You will have flats called Jobs,
But, if you have a spare called Determination,
An engine called Perseverance,
Insurance called Faith,
A driver called God,
You will make it to a place called Success
By no means am I a religious person, but I read this quote/poem and though it was just so relevant in my life. It is always good to remind ourselves that none of us are perfect, we will slip up but we pick ourselves back up and keep on going. Exactly what the first statement says "the road to success is not straight", it's not, there's no easy way to get there, theres no pill theres no magic wish, it's just a lot of blood, sweat and determination that will get us to our goals. There will be many obstacles along the way, but keep that determination and perseverance and success is sure to follow.
