Many men and women have struggled through a similar start in life carrying the wounds of that upbringing with them into adulthood. Scott Colby grew up in the shadow of his older brother who was the top achiever in the family. This feeling of inadequacy and having to perform at the same level of his brother led Scott to cheat on tests in order to keep up.
