Timeless Definition of Success

Aug 24, 2010 | Faith

To Laugh Often
    To win respect of intelligent people
         and the affection of children.
To hear the appreciation of honest critics
     and endure 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 redeemed social condition
To know even one life has breathed easier 
    Because you have lived.

This is the meaning of success.
                        Ralph Waldo Emerson

I came across this on a colleagues’ wall via a poster. 
It blessed and challenged me,
And reminded me of what’s most important. 
Hope you find it that way too.
