Hi, I do believe that behind every successful man there is a woman and behind every successful woman there is a man. It is not easy to achieve something in life without the support of the ones who are closely related to us like a husband or a wife. Whether it is a man or a woman, I think our partner plays a vital role in making it easier for us to walk up the rungs of the success ladder.

Yes, I agree. But most importantly these days, I hope there are men behind successful women also.

I don't know how far this is true. But one thing is for sure. You are what your family and friends have made you along with the hard work that you put in.

You can say that but have you heard of the saying behind every criminal there is also a woman. Now I did not understand that statement until very much later when I come across a gentleman by the name of Napoleon Hill, he is a motivation speak and did a lot of research on human interaction and he claims that all man exhibit behavior to impress woman. While it is a sweeping statement but think about it, the way we dress, act and behave is to get the attention of the one we like (man or woman, and if that person is a good motivation than we would become successful but if that person is not a good motivation then we would be in trouble. What do you think?

I do not support this statement if it means that motivation is caused by a woman. It has to come from within. But, a man can be allowed to be successful. If he has peace at home by way of a contented wife, then he can do his work and achieve whatever he wants to in life . He can have a fruitful and fulfilling career and be successful if there is a cooperative wife. If she learns to live within his expectations then there is peace at home. This will enable success of a man. Once my uncle was reporting how his brother-in-law was a great success. I am reporting the conversation narrated by him. MR.A: DO you know? My wife[MR.B's sister] is the cause for all my success and academic achievements." Mr.: "I am so glad to hear this. My sister has helped you so much. But, how?" Mr.: The moment I come back from work, she would nag me so much that I would run away to the library and bury myself in my books. This helped me succeed tremendously in my career." This is why that man has attributed his success to his wife. This is only in a lighter vein and the first part of my answer is my real response.

In my opinion, this stands to be true, because women can come across as determined and not so easily ready to give up when things do not seems to be going the way they want. men need lots of support and encouragement to boost their ego and women does this for them. So by having a strong woman standing by their side who they can turn to and get a second opinion from, many men can say that because of this woman they have become a success. The other side of the coin is a man who has a nagging complaining woman...when this happens, he will sooner or later try to get rid of her because she does not being any support or encouragement to the table

I don't believe that at all & I think that phrase is an insult to people who made it without any women's help... Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to belittle women but at the same time, I know plenty of people who grew up from a divorced family that are considered successful now... I personally know 3 of my brother's friends who came from a family who's parents have been divorced & they have been raised by their father... Also there's one who's mother has passed away when he was 2 & now he's 32 & his net worth is little over 6 million dollars... He just started dating a girl 3 month ago... He was single because he was too bsy with his work & now that he feels happy enough where he is in life, he decided to get into dating scenes... I believe a persons loved ones can be a very strong motivation to succeed in life... No doubt about that... I just don't believe in that saying...

I agree and I also do not agree. All depends on each individual person. There are men who hampered his success, because the woman. Thus, the sentence was not justified, nor can the blame. Success can also be achieved with great effort. Not all women, can lead to success for men, and vice versa.

Hi! It is true to a great extent that behind every successful man there would be a woman and its vice versa is also true. Without the support of each other it is difficult to achieve success. For a successful man, it could be his mother or life partner and for a woman it could be his father, brother or husband who contribute in her success.

The phrase is out of date now - it comes from a time when men worked and women stayed at home with the kids. The idea was that the man was able to be successful because he had moral and practical support at home (and didn't have to worry about all the daily chores, etc.). These days, the man/woman part of it is interchangeable.

I do believe in this saying, because behind these successful people, there are always other people who are staying with them for emotional support and encouraging them to do their best to achieve their goals and ambitions in life.

Yea I agree with the statement, because when there is a women people tend to work more by seeing her or thinking about her. I have seen my friend, we both go to gym together but when he sees his girl whom he likes but have never said to he. He starts to work out like madly and do more and more exercises. I agree with your statement just because of him.
