The Secret of Success

"We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another." 
-Luciano de Crescenzo

(Drew this as a makeshift cover for a draft of my book a couple years ago)

We all know that a great deal of hard work and persistence goes into every successful thing but there is something else that I feel is absolutely necessary in order to achieve success and it has everything to do with the quote above. 
What is it? Allow me to make you a list, because I love lists:

1. Help others and you will be helped. 
2. Be kind and you will find kindness. 
3. Be polite and professional and you will be treated with respect by those who matter most. 
4. NEVER forget to say thank you...and mean it.

None of us are islands. Greatness, EPICNESS, is a group effort whether you want to believe it or not. Now go make some friends and play nice.
