Behind every successful athlete, artist, musician, or entrepreneur, you’re likely to find another person who showed him the path to success, inspired his confidence, or proved that what seemed impossible simply wasn’t. Having a real person to follow—living or not—provides encouragement, strength, skill, and resolve in a way that training manuals and textbooks just can’t.
