What do you call success? We all have a different definition I am sure.
Success is so many things to me, and really none of them have anything to do with money.
I truly believe you can be a successful person if you just live life right - be respectful, happy, loving, caring, sharing, spiritual, etc..
Some of the richest people I know (monetarily) are the least successful in my book. The almighty dollar has become their God, their friend, their lover, their life. That is sad.
I saw this on FB a while back - and it really sums up success to me.
The one thing I disagree with - IS these things are not "little things". They are huge. If we have these 10 things in our life, we are far, far richer than millions of people on this planet.
I know we are all working hard at providing a good life for our families in many ways. Gardening, preserving, frugal shopping/living, making do, recycling, re-purposing, sharing, bartering, being good stewards of all we have..........................these are the wonders of success!
I pray each day and I know He listens and answers.
I have family and friends.
I have a wonderful caring/sharing community, in my life, from all over the world, thanks to computers.
I have health.
I have shelter, food, and drink.
I HAVE ENOUGH!!!!!
I AM RICH - in so many ways!!!!
G and I used to have a standard conversation on Sunday mornings when we played the lottery. He would say "'are we rich yet?" - My response every time was "we already are".
WHAT IS SUCCESS TO YOU?
I somehow bet we are all pretty close to being on the same page with this one!
Like minds do tend to think alike.
Blessings my friends.
