The more effortlessly we succeed the more others will believe us capable of.
The gentleman does not sweat in public. Victory falls to him without (apparent) effort as if he were made of more than human flesh.
It is this apparent effortlessness that inspires trust. He is like a car that overtakes another so easily that the onlooker wonders how much power might be unleashed if the driver put his foot down.
This effortless success applies to every area of his life. He remains slim without ever seeming to diet. He is well liked without being a suck up.
Do not mistake appearance for reality. Effortless success does not come to the lazy.
