Success is not an accident. It requires work and a vision. One has to see where they are going and be able to articulate how to get there. The articulation of that path is a Plan. Without a plan your travels are a boat in the water without a rudder, just aimlessly floating from point to point and not taking a direct path. Along your journey there will be bumps in the road and when they occur is when the plan is the most important. Beleive in what you have laid out on a consistent basis. As soon as a bump is hit and you waiver from your plan those around you lose faith. Do not allow anyone or anything to cause you to deviate from your plan. To attain succes have a vision, a plan and the guts to stick to both.
