Sometimes life is living us, and we dance like puppets on strings. But what makes us successful or in other words, what is the success? I read once a great thought about to succeed.
Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
To laugh often and love much,
to win the respect of intelligent persons,
and the affection of children;
to earn the approbation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty,
to find the best in others;
to give one’s self;
to leave the world a bit better,
whether by a healthy child, a garden patch
or a redeemed social condition;
to have played and laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation;
to know even one life has breathed easier
because you have lived —
this is, to have succeeded.
And as Buddha once said: “Do not dwell upon the past; do not dream into the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.”
I wish all the reader happiness on your path, and that you know that everybody laughs in the same language.
