So very true, right? Above water, people may only see the finished product and your image, but underneath that water what they don’t see is all the effort you have put into your success. I’d like to add to that underwater list integrity, unselfishness, team player, honesty, respect, knowledge, loyalty, fairness, and even a little humility and humor.
At the same time, we are all sure to run across many who project an image that is anything but genuine and yet achieve success without exhibiting few if any of those underwater truths. The real truth is, swim on, swim past them, dive in, and enjoy getting a little sand in your toes!
Success is never an easy road, but it can be an exciting one.
