Wealth 37 : Keep Right On To The End Of The Road

Keep Right On To The End Of The Road” is the 37th in my 'Wealth' series of original copyrighted WakeUp2Wealth Press Releases written by Tom Riach (that's me above) from my home in the sunny south of Portugal.

Wake Up 2 Wealth

Wake Up 2 Wealth's Daily View Of The World!


Sir Harry Lauder, the self-styled Laird o' Cockpen, was the renowned Scottish music hall and vaudeville singer and comedian during the early years of the twentieth century. He was famous for wearing extravagant full highland dress and carrying a gnarled cromach (walking stick) while performing; his appearance being almost a caricature which lent itself easily to some ridicule. But, as they say, all publicity is good publicity and his image, rich brogue, distinctive singing voice and repertoire of self-effacing tales of Scots' meanness turned him into a worldwide star. In fact, at the height of his fame, he was the highest paid entertainer in the world!

Not bad for an Edinburgh laddie, one of seven children of a master potter who died young leaving Harry's mother to fend for and bring up the family and necessitating young Harry (Henry was his real name) to start work at the age of just eleven years. He worked first in a flax mill and then for ten years as a coal miner before earning his first five shillings as a performer when he was persuaded at short notice to fill in for an inebriate indisposed singer in a local music hall. It wasn't quite a case of 'from there he never looked back', many hard years 'on the road' honing his skills and perfecting his act followed but by 1912, when he appeared top of the bill at the very first Royal Command Performance in front of King George V, Harry Lauder was a household name around the world – and nowhere was his international acclaim greater than in America.

To this day, many fine British performers aspire to 'make it big' in the USA - and fail! But Sir Harry was taken to heart by his American audiences who relished the nostalgia for the 'old country' and pathos inherent in his act but, more than anything else, saw in him a kindred spirit, a battler, a laddie from a poor family put out to work in a coal mine as a child yet who had overcome adversity and an under-privileged background to become the biggest star of variety theatre the world had ever seen!

Lauder's story is indeed one of inspiration, a lesson for all those who have ever aspired to better themselves and proof, if proof be needed that, whoever you are, whatever your circumstance, it's always possible to drag yourself up from lowly status, reach for the stars and achieve the impossible.

POWER POINT - “Whatever your situation it is always possible to pull yourself up, reach for the stars and achieve the impossible.”

And generations before Bob Dylan or the Beatles or others appeared on the scene performing material of their own composition, Sir Harry Lauder wrote all his own 'greatest hits'. He was the original singer/song-writer super star!

Immortal numbers such as “I Love A Lassie”, “Roamin' In The Gloamin' ” and “A Wee Deoch-an-Doris”, he both penned and performed. But his one song which perhaps best of all epitomises the man himself and his never-say-die spirit and with words that could have easily been purpose written for a modern day motivational speaker is :

Keep right on to the end of the road, Keep right on to the end

Though the way be long, Let your heart beat strong

Keep right on round the bend

Though you're tired and weary still journey on

Till you come to your happy abode

Where all you love and been dreaming of

Will be there, At the end of the road!

Perseverance pays. Take my word for it. I live and 'work' in the sunny south of Portugal. Need I say more? This is my 'office'!

For many years I have run my WAKE UP LEISURE AND LEARNING BREAKS (click on to learn more) where I talk of perseverance and of creating serious wealth. Or send for my WAKE UP 2 WEALTH E-BOOK , it's packed with my secrets of success and exact instructions as to how to earn a fortune as a super achiever.
