When we talk about success, emulating a boy scout just isn’t a bad idea. Let’s break it down. The cleanliness of theory is no match for the mess of reality. Thus, be prepared. We start our days with such high hopes and plans and then the phone rings with our first problem of the day. I feel that being prepared means being mentally tough to be able to handle what ever life throws at you. Some events that occur come many times without any notice, and our best laid plans sometimes do go askew.. But if we are mentally tough, we are able to overcome the adversity in our path.
