“A successful (person) is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him (or her).”
– David Brinkley
From an image perspective, being your own boss is “working when you want.” But reality is that success is built on hard work and sacrifice, and many, many, many long hours. As Safety Professionals, we can relate. Many times our customers think its all “common sense” when in fact we learn, gain experience, and sacrifice for our processes to be successful. Character is formed by how we professionally respond to the challenges we face: make it a positive foundation.
