If you are someone who is wanting to learn how to have better success and happiness in your life than this article is for you.

One wintery day my 17-year-old son Sonny told me that he was driving some of his friends out to a place called Freedom Falls. I know this place very well because I have been there many times over the years. It is located in a remote area. It is located on a creek with a beautiful waterfall. It is a breathtaking view at Freedom Falls.

The road that takes you to the falls is a very narrow dirt lane that makes a sharp 90 degree turn that travels down a very steep hill. It was winter time and the roads were covered with snow and ice. I told my son he should drive our 4 wheel drive truck instead of his front wheel drive VW Passat to make sure that he gets there safely.

When I arrived home later that day I noticed that the front fender and fog light on his car was broken. I asked him what had happened to his car. He put his head down and said that he decided to drive his car to Freedom Falls instead of driving our 4 wheel drive truck.

He went on to say that as he tried to round the 90 degree turn at the top of the hill. He lost control of his car and ran into a bank damaging the front of his car.

As he looked at the damage to his car that he worked so hard to get. He now had regrets for not taking my advice. It ended up costing him a lot of money to get his car fixed.

In hindsight he learned a valuable and costly lesson about having the right vehicle to get you safely and successfully to your destination.

How many times have you been trying to get to your destination with your goals and dreams in life? Only to crash and burned along the way and end up without having any success.

It probably has a lot to do with using the wrong vehicle to get you there.

How costly has that been for you in lost time and money?
