Thriving people; role models and mentors experience failures and rejections that they deeply wish to share with their followers but strongly resist doing so.

The reason, however, may not be their desire to be seen as flawless. Rather, it is because these failures and rejections, if shared, could discourage those quietly and loudly following their steps.

Hence, as a follower, rest assured that the challenges are limitless but openly letting your mentors know that you’re following their steps will help close the communication gap, drawing you closer to reality.
