Success Defined :)

(“Wind Beneath My Wings”    ©2008 Angel Burns)


“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 little 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


We need each other. Success is not a destination but a path, and a shared one.

I often say that everything good about me I owe to my parents.

Besides family, opportunity came from the “kindness of strangers,” who became fast friends.


Who has paved your path for success? How do you define it?
