“People may spend their whole lives climbing the ladder of success only to find, once they reach the top, that the ladder is leaning against the wrong wall”
"Success is what you feel for yourself" "Is it success if there's no level of challenge or hard work?" "If you feel successful, then you are!" "You have a feeling of pride." "Success is where you exceed your expectations." "What matters what you think, not what other people think." "You are successful if you achieve your personal best."
How do you define a successful day?
How do you measure success in your life?
I was nearly moved to tears last week when one child, having taken part in a discussion on what makes a better life, decided in all sincerity that in the future she would give time to working in a soup kitchen.
Now this may, or may not, come to pass. But for now this child has a direction and she is convinced that her efforts will make a difference.
Imagine that - a compassionate life of purpose, making a positive difference. Sounds like a definition of success to me!
