Success

on January 27, 2012

One of my goals in life is to spend time in Africa to be part of the global development effort. Towards the end of 2011, I realized that this wasn’t going to be my defining purpose. I realized that the commitment I’ve made to my nephews, affectionately known to the world as E&N, is going to be what defines my life’s success. Seeing this quote this morning is so fitting after spending a really fun evening of laughter and tickle fights with my nephews:

To leave the world a bit better…to know that one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Also, I have learned that the key to happiness is to count my blessings. And the second quote I’m sharing for today, unlocks the rest of the “secret” to a joyful life:

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.
~ Albert Schweitzer
