Success isn't a race up a giant staircase absent of any barricades, divergences, or drop offs. Success is a winding loop that swerves up and down in all directions that can cause its followers to crash or bounce, sink or swim, fall or fly. Determined and restless as they are, those that become successful trek forward on this unpredictable journey with their head held high and their eyes focused on the goals ahead. While those around them fall to the wayside, the determined sprint the straights, scale the mountains, navigate the obstacles, and most importantly, they never give up. Sometimes, even the strongest, the boldest, and the keenest will face a cliff's edge so tall, with a rift so wide, that they cannot move forward on their own. Some try to succeed alone and end up barely hanging. Others sit and wait. Those that progress are those that realize they need help in finding a solution.
