Go read the success story of any famous person. Dig deep into the life history of someone you admire. Ask a loved one to tell you the full story of his or her life.
What you'll find is that for every person, success was a choice. Sure, the ball bounced someone's way a time or two. Or luck may have knocked on their door when they least expected it. But no one climbs a ladder by accident. No one falls into a giant bucket of success.
Success is a choice.
And while you're at it, so is:
- Your vote
The power is in your hands. More than ever before.
Now, go do something great with all that power you have.
