Success & Will Rogers

I never met a saying from Will Rogers that I didn’t like. So it was with extra pleasure that I read a post about him at If you haven’t checked out the homespun fun at that site I recommend that you do so.

One of Will Roger’s many sayings in’s post about him is:

“If you want to be successful, it’s just this simple. Know what you are doing. Love what you are doing. And believe in what you are doing.” –Will Rogers

That not only sounds like sage advice regarding success, but probably about being happy and leaving a legacy too.

Smart man.
