When we admire others who have achieved success, it often appears that it came to them effortlessly; but this is rarely, if ever, the case. Unless you have been walking the path with them throughout the journey as a close friend or significant other, you probably are only seeing the last few steps of the journey. The bridges they have crossed and the trails they have blazed are often a critical but rarely discussed part of of their journey. Because success is neither easy nor certain, let alone both, it is reserved for those willing to make the extraordinary effort that is required. Share what extraordinary activity you are engaged in toward your own success.
