It’s easy to look at someone you consider successful and become attracted to the life they have right now.
You may see wealth or fame but you don’t see the failure, heartbreak, resilience, courage, grit and other factors that success is built on.
If you want to duplicate the successes enjoyed by someone else, you won’t get there by talking about the wealth, fame or other perks they’re experiencing. You get there by looking at everything that happened in their lives before they succeeded. Before the world wanted to know them.
What happens before success can often teach us far more than the actual moments of success.
