The Secret to Success — Gaining The Inside Advantage

Water Droplet

An important message can be found in a story I heard many years ago. It’s one I have included in my book The Inside Advantage:  How Ordinary People Can Accomplish Extraordinary Things.

A young boy asked his grandfather to teach him what he needed to know so that he could grow up to be successful. The wise old man agreed, then took the boy’s hand and led him down to the nearby lake. They waded into the water together. The boy was puzzled, but he trusted his grandfather.

Suddenly the man grabbed the boy by the back of the neck and pushed his head underwater. The boy struggled, frantically waving his arms and splashing in the water, thrashing his body back and forth, trying desperately to raise his head. Finally the old man released his hold.

The boy shot up out of the lake, gasping for air. The child cried, “I don’t understand! Why did you try to drown me?”

To discover what his grandfather said, I invite you to visit my website blog at

Thanks for joining me this week.

Enjoy YOUR moments!

Blessings, Love and Light,
