Every one of us desires to be successful.  Believe me, I've played athletics.  It's much more fun to be successful than not.  It's more fun to win than to lose. I've learned too that one of the keys to success is opportunity.  We must always be ready to seize every opportunity that comes out way.  However, as we wait to seize opportunities, let's not forget this quote from Thomas A. Edison, perhaps America's foremost inventor.  He said, "Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work."

One of my good friends put it this way: "Isn't it amazing that we're most often lucky when we're working hard?" Success is a mix of hard work seizing every opportunity!

I hope you all have a hope-filled, successful day.
