“There’s plenty of room at the top, but there’s no room to sit down.”
– Helen Downey (attrib.)
Look at the people you most admire in your professional and personal life.
How did they reach the top of your list? My guess is because of their values, their character, and the way they take a proactive approach to life.
Where would a “stand up and step forward” attitude help you take your rightful place among the people at the top of their game?
