What is Success?Been re-reminded of this by this Blog Pound conversation. It's one of those poems that I've handwritten and carry with me, reminding myself that it's all about attitude.
To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by
a healthy child, a garden patch
or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed
easier because you have lived;
This is to have succeeded.Ralph Waldo Emerson
