I've met a lot of people who wanted to be successful in this life. For some of them success meant making a lot of money, for others it was running a great business, for others it was having a happy family, and for others it was all of that and much more. But there’s one thing that has always made me either look at them with admiration or turn my head away every time - who they were as a person.
Not who they are in front of a particular person or in a particular situation, not who they pretend to be to get what they want or to use people to their advantage. But who they really are deep down, the values that run their lives, the standards they set for themselves and the people around them, that voice in their head that makes them differentiate right from wrong even when they know nobody’s watching.Here are a few things I've learned from the truly successful people around me, the ones who are winning on all fronts even when they’re losing.
