How do you define Success?

How do you define success? Is it the big house at the end of the cul-de-sac? The corner office on the top floor? The large savings account?

I have always liked the one by Ralph Waldo Emerson:

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 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.

So based on the many of my students who have approached me and told me that their health has improved, they can move better and some can even breathe easier; I have been a success!

How can you be successful today?
