Listen to episode 593 of the Inspirational Living Podcast: Avoiding Detours on Your Road to Success. Edited and adapted from C’mon Up by Franklin Fillmore Farrington.
Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: Nobody who drives a car enjoys seeing the sign “Detour” — for it means the long and hard way. For some reason, the straight, smooth road has been closed, and we are asked to go out of our way and endure the consequences.
