Sometimes I think that I am, and sometimes not so much. Still pondering......after 53 years, or is it 54?!

I sure hope not.  I hope I am the engine behind my success.  But if I am, I'm not much of a roadblock in stature and would be easy to surpass.  Guess that's why I am successful 30 some years later

Michael,
Cars have a gas pedal and a brake pedal. Most of the time, most of us are pedal to the metal. But there are times we hit the brakes and act against our own best interest. I strive for more gas pedal and less brake.

I think there are times when I am the roadblock.  I am trying to become more aware of it and change the behavior or mindset when I feel it coming on.

Success (or lack thereof) is a result of lots of choices, based on priorities. There are many definitions of success and it is my opinion that we are all just as successful as we choose in every area of life.
