Success is awfully hard to define, but necessary of we are to think of the end first and not just ramble through life. Everyone may go about it differently and we know that it may need tuning over time and experiences. Writing and committing to a clear and purposeful definition of success is a great place to begin or rejuvenate an end game strategy or motto for each of us.
Emerson offers a classic success definition for you to begin to write your personal definition of success from if you don’t already have one:
“To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children … to leave the world a bit better… to know even one life has breathed easier because you lived. This is to have succeeded.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson —
If you feel comfortable doing so, share with me your committed success quote and I will share them with this group of Applied Learners in a future post.
