My friend Coach Jeff Higuera nailed it today with his blog on success. Jeff used this quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson on what success is…
“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.”
Think about that for a few minutes “the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children”. So true.
