Personal Success Definition

I define success as having the courage and skill to do what you are passionate about with your life, while also being successful in your own terms. To have that success propelled by your own ambition and drive is what makes it real to me.

Calvin Werts is above the curve for where he is. He is swimming in college, a goal he had sought after through high school, and has gotten a job filming and editing in the swimming community, which is exactly the job he wanted to have. He earned every part of it, taking the opportunities where they came despite anything difficult happening in his life at the time.

Skills for Success

Calvin Werts is a dedicated worker, a risk taker and someone who loves to laugh. When he sets his mind to something, it will get done.

How They Used These Skills

Calvin used his connections in the swimming world he had accumulated through his hard work to get his foot in the door of his favorite work field under that subject matter.
