There is one aspect of a successful person's character that no one is mentioning. As important as hard work, and more important than brain power is DISCIPLINE. Behind every smart (or not so smart), hard working, successful man or woman is the discipline to put off immediate gratification, revenge, greed or whatever in order to keep pushing for that success. Yes, you may have had a sleepless night (or nights) worrying about how you were going to make payroll or pay your taxes, or pay your suppliers but in the morning you got up bright and early and assumed the role of a leader even. That's Discipline. It's a rare quality in America. That is why a fraud like Obama has appeal.
