Don't wait by the roadside for success to come along like a crosstown bus. Go out and find it, flag it down, and jump aboard.
There is an anonymous poem entitled "The Road to Success", in which the author writes that the road to success is not straight. One curve leads to failure, another leads to confusion. Friends and relatives are the speed bumps and flashing yellow caution lights along the way.
Sometimes your job will seem like a flat tire. To get back on the road and reach your destination, you'll need a spare tire called determination, an engine called perseverance, and an insurance policy called faith.
The bumpy road you travel will feel smoother if you pack a positive attitude to bolster your belief in yourself, plus plenty of enthusiasm for whatever lies ahead.
