The ladder of success was not crowded at the top. Did I set it against the right building?


Taken for active assignment weekly - motivational posters


What it took:

The ladder was set on the roof of an adjacent apartment. I would have liked the ladder to run from corner to corner, but this was the only angle i got.

    Ditto, every good thing said above! Not sure where I will use this, but it will definitely be an illustration for one of the articles on my ADD-focused Brain-based Coaching blogsite. I'll be back to ask about attribution and how you'd like it linked when that happens.

    @Ace Reporter: I'm definitely checking out your post - your title's a mantra in the ADD coaching field!

    @wildlocks: I think the top of the success ladder's not crowded for a LOT of reasons, but if/when those who make it to the top are too few due to something THEY are responsible for, for most I believe it is an error of omission.

    IMHO, we *all* need to make SURE we remember to climb with one hand reaching up for support and one hand reaching down TO support.

    NOBODY *really* makes it alone!
