When I was a teenager, I remember telling my father that I wanted to be a successful businessman when I grew up. He asked me what type of business I wanted to work in, and I told him I didn't know, I just wanted to be a businessman. Looking back, I was seeing myself as somebody others would look up to. Not a good reason to do anything in life! So much for the detailed thinking of a teenage boy!

But I remember my father gave me two pieces of information, and both have proven themselves to be true and of great worth.

He said, "A great man is always willing to live in the shadows of his success," and then he followed that bit of wisdom up with, "The most difficult secret for a person to keep is the opinion he has of himself."
