Blowing out someone else’s candle doesn’t make yours shine any brighter. Collectively however, the intensity of brightness is strongest when candles are lit together. When we have opportunities to give others opportunity and the ability to enhance someone else’s ability we help others shine. There is more than enough success and achievement for everyone, our successes and achievements are not diminished by the enhancement of others. We can all win on our own personal journeys, there doesn’t need to be losers. If someone gets there faster than you did because of what you shared with them, great! If someone achieves even more than you have because you helped them, great! The brightest people help other people shine.
