Although I’m a huge fan of JFK, somehow I had never heard this saying until recently. “A rising tide lifts all boats” is beautiful in it’s simplicity. But it’s meaning is deep.
In our society, full of popularity, social media, and numbers, it’s easy to feel like you are constantly competing with the person next to you. But this saying could not be more true. “A rising tide lifts all boats” says that when one of us succeeds, we all succeed. There is room for all of us. One person’s success does not diminish another’s.
