What is “Success” to you?

Ralph Waldo EmersonI came across a quote today from one of the great philosophers of recent time, Ralph Waldo Emerson. As I read through I felt the truth of it ring through my very bones. We spend so much time chasing titles and raises in life trying to define our success by the standards the movies, media and books have filled our mind with that we don't realize those things have absolutely nothing to do with success, true honest make your soul sing success. That is something that no amount of money can buy and no title can give, it is something each of us have to earn in our way. Read through the quote below and see how it speaks to you and leave a comment about what you think success really is.

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 the meaning of success.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
