Success

Happy Monday!  How do you measure success?  Is it by the number of tasks you accomplish?  Or is it determined by the amount of money you make?  Do you look to the quantity and cost of your possessions to dictate your level of success?  As I bid each of you a successful week, I leave you with the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson.

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

How do you define success?  By your measures, are you successful?
