Road Map to Success
“All you need is the plan; the road map and the courage to press on to your destination.”
Once I took a vacation to a new location without a map or a GPS. It was a nightmare of an experience. I was going in the wrong direction on a rural road in Texas. There were no service stations or any place to stop to ask for direction. Finally I spotted a farm house so I drove into the driveway got out the car and went knock on the front door. No one answered but a vicious dog appeared and chased me to the car. We still laugh about that experience. My wife said I could have won the Boston Marathon. That was how fast I was running; my knees were almost touching my chin! That was a quickly learned lesson!
Every success I have experienced in creating abundance came about by knowing what I wanted and having a plan to achieve it. Life throws many curve balls. This happened when we were married ten years and after the birth of our third child.
Our car was old and required a lot of mechanical work. My passion for travel could not be fed because we did not have the extra money to take trips. It seemed as though everything around the house needed repair.
Thanks to my curiosity I noticed the cover of a nutrition magazine on which was highlighted an article about our food source no longer having the nutritional value it once did due to over fertilization, hastened growth, and extensive use of pesticides. They said to stay healthy people would need to take food supplements. Coincidentally a few months later friends came over to talk with us about food supplements that are manufactured by Shaklee. She also emphasized the benefits the company offered should we decide to tell others about these products. We purchased some of the supplements, started to feel better and told our family and friends about them. I called our friends who introduced us to Shaklee http://melancon.myshaklee.com/us/en/
and asked them to come back to our house to give me a road map to achieve all the benefits this company offered.
Once I have clarity of direction I know I am going to get to my destination. Seven months after that second visit from our friends we were invited to an all-expense-paid convention at the home office of Shaklee in San Francisco. The next year we qualified for a bonus car. Following that we traveled each year to different locations attending meetings and conventions. I believe there is a way to achieve what we want in life if we are passionate about it and employ every available tool to get to our destination.
You may want to consider using some of the tools I suggest in my video or you may want to start furnishing your tool box with resources you find most helpful. Whatever works best in providing your road map to abundance has to be kept at your fingertips!

The road to success is never easy. People think that the road to success is just a straight path. That is not true at all because the road to success is actually full of failures. When you fail in life, that means you are on the right track. You do not need to feel ashamed when you fail because failing means that you are closer to being successful. The lessons you learn from failing are lessons that you can never learn elsewhere.
I greatly appreciate your comment. It offers me encouragement in continuing to move forward with my blog postings.my initial intent was to start a blog so my 8 grandchildren would read it. Coming from a sales background I am driven by success. When my readership increased to over 2000 weekly I was estastic. A few weeks ago I hit a dry spell and I could not focus on writing. Your message came at a great time.
