I will never forget when I was a senior in college at Southern Miss talking to a successful business man about success and hard work. He told me that hard work is one thing, but if we were in a race and you were in a Toyota Camry and I was in a Ferrari, who do you think is going to win?? You can work really hard and be in the wrong vehicle. That has always stuck with me. Thankful for that perspective, it is a big reason why I have the freedom I have today!!
