Pay Attention To The Man Behind The Curtain

The Great and Powerful OzWe all know the scene. The giant head is scaring Dorothy and friends when Toto pulls the curtain back revealing that the great and powerful Oz is really a traveling salesman. This is a great metaphor for success. What people see is the great and powerful Oz. All of the hard work and struggles take place behind the curtain.

When we look at our contemporaries and competitors, we’re seeing the wizard. It’s easy to get jealous or envious because you’re only seeing what they want you to see. The truth is behind the curtain. No one has ever had everything go their way. Everyone has a struggle to overcome. Some people wear that struggle on their sleeve and some keep it behind the curtain.

Peek behind the curtain. That’s where you’ll learn what really goes on.
