Someone asked me what one thing best described or accounted for my success. Here is what I told them.
Success is not about an event or an outcome. It comes from the relentless pursuit of something better ... even in the face of failure, competition, or surprises.
It doesn't matter where you are (or how you got there). There is always a best next step. And, if you don't see it, the best next step might be remembering that there is one and shifting your perspective or role until you do.
What do you think? What's your answer to that question?
