Morning Cheesecake

Good Morning  and a great Wednesday to y'all.
Surprisingly, Robert Kiyosaki's "Rich dad Poor dad" was one my favourite books. And in this book, he referenced a popular poem by the prolific poem; Robert Frost (The Road Not Taken). He wrote that as his best poem.
Identifying the reason for his great love of the poem, I read through it and understood the meaning of life. You know in life, we have the successful and unsuccessful ones. The unsuccessful ones always look up to the former but the thin line between them is quitting.
It's easy to say the quote: Winners never quit and quitters never win but how about abiding by it. A successful person does not translate to the richest man in the man or the prettiest woman in Nigeria. We all have different definitions of success but the real success is never quitting and accepting failures as mistake and experience to learn more about life.  Real success is being happy always, contentment with oneself and understanding the main essence of life.
Life is like a two-road way. One is smooth and beautiful and the other is bad and slippery. To be successful, you have to go through the bad and slippery road which is translated into hard work and persistence.
Never give up and strive to become that successful person.
I leave you with the popular poem of Robert Frost;
               The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
