“Success is liking yourself,
liking what your do,
and liking how you do it.”
–Maya Angelou

That’s sounds like a pretty decent definition to me, as I believe that to do those things, one’s thoughts, words, and actions will be aligned with their heart and spirit.

  3. I know of no greater harmony than that! Happy weekend Russ! And in Finland tomorrow we celebrate Father’s Day! I just want to wish you a Happy Father’s Day! To a great father to his children and to many around the world. I am blessed to know you. Sharon

      Thank you, Sharon. It was indeed. I got to honor my Father-In-Law as he was honored in a Veteran’s Day parade today. Four generations of family was present and it was a wonderful time. I’ll bet you have a very good husband who is a terrific father for your children. I can’t envision anything less for a woman and mother such as you!


  4. That’s a great perspective of success, thank you.
    Awhile back I had explored the concept of success in a somewhat different manner and I invite you and other readers to that post of mine.

    Cheers and God Bless.
