“The road to success is always under construction”
~ Lily Tomlin
Sometimes when we hit a roadblock, we forget that it’s not always a smooth ride. The road to success is never simple. Once we recognize that, we will not be so quick to call it quits when he hit a rough road. Success comes at a cost and that price has everything to do with getting through a construction zone. Sure the road from point A to point B might be straight, but there could be a rough patch ahead that you never anticipated.
Plan ahead so that when you encounter those rough spots, you’re not so shocked you decide to stop driving. I loved the quote by Lily Tomlin because it reminds me of how we feel when we’re driving and then come upon a roadblock because of a construction zone. The feeling of frustration instantly hits. Not knowing how long you will have to wait behind the sign, trucks or workers can be frustrating; especially when you’re on a schedule.
The best thing to do is to remember that the construction is only making improvements on the road ahead.
