The road to success

According to this allegorical map drawn in 1913, the path to success is long and arduous. Once you get past the Gate of Opportunity, you need to resist pit stops at Comfort Inn, Garden of Bohemianism, Hotel Know-it-all, etc. Then by-passing the road that leads to illiteracy, and conceit, you need to board the train at Right System to cross the River called Failure and get through the Gate of Ideals to reach Success.

Will it really be worth the trouble, or as one of the commenters puts it, should we conclude that “Success is for losers. Give me bohemianism any day"?
