When thinking about "success", my mind automatically conjures up thoughts of people and organizations who do great things with and for others. The inclination to automatically look to success as something accomplished by others is not intentional and brings to mind the following quote:

"Do for one what you wish you could do for everyone. Because if we all did for one what we wish we could do for everyone, it might change the world. But certainly, it would change one person’s world. It may even change your world." ~ Andy Stanley

Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary ~ 1953 edition ~ Success ~ (n)

1. That which ensues; outcome;issue.

2. Degree or measure of succeeding, or attaining one's desired end.

3. Favorable termination of a venture; often, specifically the attainment of wealth, fame, etc.

4. A successful person or thing; one achieving success.

So for today remember . . . "Comparison is the thief of joy!" ~ ~ ~ Theodore Roosevelt


"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 the beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit 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 to have succeeded!” ~ ~ ~ attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson
