HOW DO YOU MEASURE SUCCESS?

To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons
and the affection of children;

To earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of
false friends;

To appreciate beauty;

To find the best in others; to give of one’s self;

To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden
patch or a redeemed social condition;

To have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation;

To know even one life had breathed easier because you have lived ---

This is to have succeeded.

--------------------

-This Poem is generally attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson.

To me success is to be a light among dark people.

To plant hope where there is no hope, to give love unconditionally, to give without any strings attached,
to be able to forgive, even when people do not deserve it.

To fill our heart and soul with love every day.
Cause this is what we are being replenished from the Creator.

So, we cannot help but mirror HIM who is the Author and Maker of love.

To me this is Success!

Welcome back INProcess, we missed you!

~Love, RAS~

Success....hmmmmmmmm....pretty late at night for me to ponder this. I guess success is to have been considerate and thoughtful of others, putting their needs before yours... (Yikes! sounding sort of "codependent-ty!) But that is what comes to mind...giving of oneself to help others in need. Bangles

Sucess can be a small or as big as just putting one foot ahead of the other.

ntheproces...I agree. I used to allow success or lack thereof define who I am...boy was I wrong. Success means what you posted and more. Thanks.

Success means allowing myself to feel good about doing something well, instead of finding ways to tear myself down.

For me success is having a loving relationship with myself and others.
