What is the shortest cut to a well-deserved success? What is the shortest cut to wealth honestly made? The answer is that there are no shortcuts to any of them. You got to go from A to Z and the more obstacles you encounter the better. Be advised that hardship and suffering are God’s best educators. You got to think hard and work hard. In fact, you got to think harder and harder and harder and work harder and harder and harder. The slightest let go will erode your resolve, your intelligence and your psyche. The slightest neglect will hamper your drive toward the building of your good character, personality and reputation which are indeed the traits that define true success and wealth. It’s been said that if you took care of your character, your personality and reputation will take care of themselves.
