Wisdom is choosing the purity of truth over popularity.


Reality can be defined as the truth, the real nature of something - the facts. A key element to success is discovering and then facing reality - the reality of your opportunities, the reality of your business, the reality of your culture...and more.


Choosing to search for the truth and having the courage to confront the hard realities will pay dividends.  You'll find the road to success a little straighter, the challenges less overwhelming and even a fewer surprises along the way.
