"Climb unto the topmost bights, 
win yourself an honored name, 
but respect another's rights,
raise the weak and help the lame;
strength of muscle or of mind 
gives no right to be unkind."- Edgar Albert Guest

It doesn't matter where you are,
where you want to go,
to get there, to stay there, you must raise other people up.

Raise others. Do not forget the weak.
You can't promote yourself without promoting yourself.

To get to where you want to go, you must not leave anybody behind.
You are not a success if your people are not doing well.
As a leader, your job is not to leave people behind.
It is to lift them up. People don't like to be stuck.
They want to grow. If you can lift then up, 
if you can give then what they want and need, you are their God.
And they will never forget you.

You cannot grow yourself if you are not ready and willing to grow. Creativity doesn’t happen overnight. Your personal or professional growth is not going to happen overnight. If you want it, you have got be patient with yourself.

You have got to be patient with yourself. If you don’t give up on yourself, you can grow yourself. It is going to take some time. But to get there, according to Earl Prevette, “Things are not built as a whole, but in parts, and each part must be built. You must build a little each day.” If you need to grow badly, it is not going to happen overnight. You have got to commit yourself to it to make it happen.

You are going to lay your foundation one brick at a time. And before you lay your brick, you must know yourself. You can’t grow yourself if you don’t yourself. According to John Maxwell, “You must know yourself to grow yourself.” Are you ready to grow yourself? If you are ready, just lay one brick at a time.
