Marriage is a 24 hour job. You get married, you’re no longer an individual. You can’t do nothing by yourself when you get married. Everything is a team effort. ‘Us’, ‘we’, ‘let’s’, honey, come on partner. You can’t do nothing by yourself. Kevin: Baby I’m gonna be right back I’m going to the store. Wife: Well, wait, let me get my coat. Kevin: Bit__, it’s right there on the corner. I just wanna get some chips. I ain’t going to sleep with nobody. Kevin Hart (Video)
By far the most important road to success is actually staying ON the road.  Do not allow adversity to distract you from your passion, instead use it as fuel to trudge ahead.  However sometimes adversity does not seem to allow an opportunity to work in your favor.  As Doc Rivers famously said, "You have to be willing to get your heart broken to be a champion".  Sometimes the name of the game is thick skin and perseverance.
There is a difference between being successful, and feeling successful.  Trust me, you want the latter.  Success should be accompanied by a feeling of humility that only the best of the best are capable of.  Harry Truman said, "It's amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit," and that is the selfless attitude that true success stories are built from.
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares. Henri Nouwen
