A Little Monday Motivation

Blog Post #85

Ralph Waldo Emerson is one of my favourite poets. His words often strike a deep chord within me. The poem I am sharing with you today, is one that I feel perfectly defines the concept of success.

Tall Trees

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
