“All roads that lead to success have to pass through Hard Work Boulevard at some point”

"All roads that lead to success have to pass through Hard Work Boulevard at some point” is a saying that has been printed on a poster. The saying has been cited in print since at least December 2011, when it was credited to motivational speaker and author Eric Thomas ("The Hip Hop Preacher"). The full quote given in 2011—longer than the poster version—is:

“There is nothing wrong with dreaming big dreams, just know that all roads that lead to success have to pass through Hardwork Boulevard at some point.”

In the world I have lived in for the last six decades new ideas can lead to wealth…if the road you travel down is called “hard work boulevard” and not “fantasy lane.”

The road less traveled is usually the best direction to take! Take a right on faith avenue and follow it straight down hard work boulevard!
