Successfully successful

“Success is not counted by how high you have climbed but by how many people you brought with you.”

~ Wil Rose

Happiness is...

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

~ Schweitzer

Success is a lot of things to a lot of people but the one thing it isn’t is having lots of possessions and having no one to enjoy them with. If you don’t have others to enjoy all you have obtained or attained in life, then what good is it to have anything at all? Additionally, having friends who like you just because of what you own are not the kind of people you need in your life. Seek people who truly care for you no matter what you have or how successful you are. Finding them can be just as hard if not harder to obtain than any material possessions you may acquire. Close friends are the real treasure in life, so look for them like you would a chest of gold or fine jewels buried on some remote island. When you are happy doing what you like in life with people who can share in your happiness, then you are truly successful.

  2. You’re welcome! Always a pleasure to hear from you John and glad you find your dose of inspiration on my little piece of real estate on the Web.

  3. The real value and meaning of our life depends on what we give to others, not what we get from them, and not how much money or material possessions we have.

  4. I couldn’t agree more on “Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” This is what I’m living on these days. 🙂

  5. Close friends are the real treasure in life (~_~)
