What Is Success?

What Is Success?

I think the following offering sums up what it is to have succeeded so very well.

Over the years, I’ve been given much advice concerning, success.

In The Raw Truth: Campbell’s Rambles Book Two Prologue and Chapters 1-4 found here on my blog, I wrote the words of Mr. John Keane, now retired Senior SpecialistN-Seeing Eye.

Here are yet more awesome words to help us realize what in our lives, is important to help us find, our success.

“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)
