What is Success?
THE ROAD TO SUCCESS IS NOT
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 JESUS. . . .
YOU WILL MAKE IT TO A PLACE CALLED SUCCESS!
My first job was working in an orange juice factory, but I got canned...couldn't concentrate.
Then I worked in the woods as a lumberjack, but I just couldn't hack it, so they gave me the axe.
Next I tried working in a muffler factory but that was exhausting.
Then I tried to be a chef -- figured it would add a little spice to my life but I just didn't have the thyme.
My best job was being a musician, but eventually I found I wasn't noteworthy.
Next was a job in a shoe factory; I tried but I just didn't fit in.
I managed to get a good job working for a pool maintenance company, but the work was just too draining.
I got a job at a zoo feeding giraffes but I was fired because I wasn't up to it.
So then I got a job in a gymnasium (work-out-center), but they said I wasn't fit for the job.
After many years of trying to find steady work I finally got a job as a historian until I realized there was no future in it.
My last job was working at Starbucks, but I had to quit because it was always the same old grind.
To be able to carry money without spending it;
To be able to bear an injustice without retaliating;
To be able to do one's duty when critical eyes watch;
To be able to keep at the job until it is finished;
To be able to do the work and let others receive the recognition;
To be able to accept criticism without letting it whip you;
To lift up those who push you down;
To love when hate is all about you;
To follow God when others put detour signs in your path;
And real success is:
To have the peace of heart and mind because you have given God your best - this is the true measure of success!
