Find Some Shoulders to Stand On


Tom Corley boats - crop

Sixteenth century astronomer Galileo Galilei stood on the shoulders of 15th century astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus when he proved through experiments that Copernicus’ sun centered theory was correct. Sir Isaac Newton, considered the father of physics and calculus, stood on the shoulders of Copernicus, Galileo and Rene Descartes. Albert Einstein stood on the shoulders of Galileo, Copernicus, Newton, Descartes and many others when he came up with his famous mass = energy formula that gave birth to the atom bomb and when he helped humanity understand the geometry of space.

All successful individuals stand on the shoulders of others. Some of the shoulders we climb up on are found in books, others in mentors who help guide us in life. If you want to be successful you have to continuously learn from others what to do and what not to do. That ongoing growth in knowledge is the very foundation of success. Let me ask you, whose shoulders are you trying to climb on? If you know the answer to that question, you are most likely on the path towards success.
