The road to success is not straight… There is a curb called Failure; a loop called Confusion; speed bumps called Friends; red lights called Enemies; caution lights called Family; you will have flats called Jobs.

However, if you have a spare called Determination; an engine called Perseverance; and insurance called Faith… You will make it to a word called Success.
