The road to success starts within a heart that wants to be the best at something–a heart, mind, and soul that does not want to be ordinary, but extraordinary. These words of hope come from the roots of our country’s heritage where ordinary people, who have a dream, work hard to achieve. Let these words of truth breathe life into the core of your bones. Winners never look for the easy way out. They simply look at the impossible, and say to themselves to set their heart upon this lofty dream and chase after it with their whole heart. The road to success is narrow, and many will miss it because the road to failure is broad and easy. Plant your feet firmly upon the rock of your desire to become the best. It is easy to fail; do not work hard, and do not have a dream–that is all it takes. However, that is all right, because somewhere out there is an ordinary person hoping that is exactly what you are doing–nothing. Yes, the road to an average, mediocre life is easy, but for those who have a dream, the road to success is another story. Count the cost before you start down this road; for in a month, or in a year will you still be fighting to become the best? Oh, but the road to success is filled with life, happiness, and sweet, sweet victory! Are you ready to travel down this road to success no matter what the price? Learn to enjoy the journey and be committed to the long haul to achieve your heart’s desire.
