Success Needs Positive Attitude

i-believe-in-meQuick positive post this morning.

First of all, Happy Hump Day! …err Wednesday. I trust that you are having a great day . . .

While I was doing my daily reading this morning, I came across a quote that particularly resonated with me.

Do you get some reading in each morning, or some positive audio listening? It’s a perfect start to the day to look over your goals and read some positive stuff as you begin your day. Sets you up for success right off.

Anyway here is the quote:


That man is successful who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much, who has gained the respect of the intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.

~ Robert Louis Stevenson

We would do well to have lived like this and be able look back on our life recalling all the joys we experienced and also all the joys we caused other people to enjoy. What an awesome feeling that will be. Notice it does not say anything about an abundance of material things or money as being necessary…
