“That man is successful who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much, who has gained the respect of the intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.”
— Robert Louis Stevenson
I had a post written about success, but scrapped it when I realized that Mr. Stevenson said it much better.
Today, let his words be your guide.
Whatever you choose to do, I hope you are successful.
Yesterday’s gift of time … Made a loan through Kiva to a man in Albania, helping him get the funds he needs to build a larger barn. Whether he builds a bigger barn or not, I hope he’s successful.
