The Real Essence...
Success eludes many people because they define it too narrowly. They see it only in superficial terms of money, or fame, or power, and completely miss real essence of success.
If you strive solely for material wealth, or influence, or the praise of others, then you are merely pursuing the empty shell of success, without ever attaining success itself. Such an approach rarely ever works, and even when it does it quickly crumbles.
Real success comes from adding value to the world in your own special way. And every day presents you with an abundance of opportunities for doing that. Today is no exception. This very day, you can be a successful as the world's most widely acclaimed billionaire, simply by using what you have, to do what you can.
Success is found in directing your life towards a meaninggful purpose. No amount of money, or power, or fame can ever equal that.

I love the fact that you write meaningful pieces. Pieces that people can use to think and then, if they choose to, apply in their lives. I just think is is wonderful.
