When I was much younger, this was the saying, "For every successful man, there is always a woman behind".
Perhaps is true! I could see all prominent and great leaders or successful business men have a motivator and adviser behind, be they the wives or lovers. The Chinese have the belief of the "Yin & Yang", an energy to balance the fulfilment of man and woman. With the inspiring love, man moves mountains and overcome all obstacles of live to achieve success.
Today statement has been changed, "Behind every successful woman, there is a satisfied man. But behind a satisfied woman, there is an exhausted man".
The reason could be, our world has changed tremendously since the last 20 years. Those days, men walked and women were behind. Today women walked and men stayed behind. Women are smarter today. They are better in studies and excel in every way. Men are playful and lacking in advancement on all ways. We would not be surprised, soon the next new President of USA would be a woman.
It would be a shame to see all successful women leaving with exhausted men.
