about wisher, washer, wishy-washy
Some wish, some do, some flounder
Why do only 5 percent of the population attain phenomenal success while many others lead lives of quiet desperation? Is it luck? Genes? Age? Environment? Nope.
Most people dream of success but, as they grow older, settle into believing that life got in the way, that their unfulfilled dreams and unachieved goals were simply not meant to be. I disagree. It is a matter of choice and of persistence, coupled with dogged determination in the face of obstacles. setbacks and failures. Success, when you've scaled the mountain and really earned it, is so much sweeter and wishing for success and committing yourself to it are very different things.

"As a former editor of PINK magazine, a national publication for businesswomen, I've interviewed hundreds of experts and read many books, articles and studies on personal development, leadership, diversity and other tactics for success in business and in life. These are topics that I am passionate about, that I believe make or break the person, or the company, so it has been an honor to edit Wisher, Washer, Wishy-Washy, Enrique Ruiz's simple but engaging story of one man's life. In it, he takes the concepts that the world's most successful CEOs innovators, athletes, and scientists live by, the principles and ideas that have inspired the best business and personal development books and presents them in a way that is accessible, engaging and relatable.

as Ruiz's story beautifully illustrates, it's what we do after we fail, when we make the decision to learn and grow more with each hurdle, that we discover the secrets to our own personal definition of success"
