Are You Successful?

I just got back from my PCCI training where I had a blast. I'm not yet into the usual grind of things, and I do not plan to blog until next Monday, but my morning surfing brought me this:

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.

Nice, eh? They said it's from Ralph Waldo Emerson, but others say it's not his at all. Oh, well. Anyway, it feels good to be back.
