Success: Becoming a Thoroughbred

Earning Success by becoming a Thoroughbred is done by becoming well trained, educated or well bred.  


Thoroughbreds are well trained horses or individuals who wear blinders when they run their race in order to keep their eyes focused straight ahead, allowing no distractions to get in their way.  In other words, they run their own race in order to win the Prize at the end.  While they're in the process, they lose sight of everyone else and head for the Prize or completed goal.

“When you call upon a Thoroughbred, he gives you all the speed, strength of heart and sinew in him. When you call on a jackass, he kicks.”–Patricia Neal

“There can be no two opinions as to what a highbrow is. He is the man or woman of thoroughbred intelligence who rides his mind at a gallop across country in pursuit of an idea.”–Virginia Woolf


Acquiring success by becoming a Thoroughbred simply requires the correct track to run on along with action, a steadfast-persistent pace and straightforward focus, which never allows the word “Quitter “in his vocabulary.
