After I talked about how we measure success at our Monday Morning Meeting, one of the agents at my office sent me a quick note. He said that it took him a long time to learn what the meaning of success was. he sent along this quote. “What is success? 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”.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
