Grandpa's Perspective on Failure...

Failure and Success: Mike in Tucson, AZ mortgage lender

~The Dawning of the Day of Success~

Morgan Arthur Jones was my Grandpa.  He was a New Yorker, and proud of it.

I'm 63 as I write this, and my Grandpa passed from this earth when I was just a little child.  Imagine my delight to find this hand-painted card in some old things that had been saved by my Uncle Mike! 

Life happens, and our success is a matter of hanging in there and doing what we know will ultimately bring "the dawning of the day of Success."

It is so true that most quit just before their success.
