The best way to get to the top is to begin at the bottom, and stay there.
Anyone who has ever reached the top of their game will tell you that it was the set of values they began with that got them there.
So, staying at the bottom means that you never move away from the foundational principles that made you who you are. They keep you grounded.
They remind you that they were what inspired you to work hard every day, and they will be what keeps you growing, even after you’ve accomplished everything you set out to do in the beginning.
