Those who tend to be most successful in life (both business and personal) deal in truths. They learn and they understand the laws; the truths of nature, including human nature, physical nature, and economic nature.
They don’t deny or ignore those truths; they don’t fight those truths; but rather they work within those truths…in order to dramatically improve potential outcomes both for themselves, and for others.
Key point: Dealing in truths does not mean throwing up your hands and saying, “well, that’s that, nothing I can do about it.”
Not one bit. It simply means that rather than ignoring what is inconvenient — as though doing so will render it impotent and inconsequential — you determine how to either work around it, or within it…using it in a way that will help you to attain your desired result.
In the next post we’ll look at several examples. However, if you have any you’d like to share with us please feel welcome to do so below in the comments section.

Bob this was an excellent point until you the point where you stated either you work “around it or within it”. Around it is the same as ignoring it or finding away to avoid the truth. Whichever truth you are dealing with at the time, and that is not the way to deal with anything nor will you be able to move forward. All truths must be part of what you are working on as you approach them, if they are relevant to the topic or subject you are working on. If a person comes across a truth stating I will just work “around it” and then I won’t have to really deal with it sand I can move forward, but what happens to that truth? How will that affect your business, the team, or client? Working within it is a much better choice. Thank you, I pray I didn’t misinterpret how you meant this part of the article,
Hi Joan, thank you for your thoughtful feedback. I appreciate that. While my use of the term, “work around it” is intended differently than the way you interpreted it, I take full responsibility for not explaining it in a way that was clear. If you’ll indulge me, I believe it’ll be explained sufficiently in the next post. Thank you again!
