What is success, what does it mean to be successful, and why do we care? It’s an interesting notion. I’ve been reading “The Fire Starter Sessions: A Soulful + Practical Guide to Creating Success on Your Own Terms” and in a couple of chapters Danielle asks you do define what makes you happy, and often, we think of Success = Happiness. But, take it a step further, what is success?
Leave it to Ralph Waldo Emerson to help us out here.
I fear the popular notion of success stands in direct opposition in all points to the real and wholesome success. One adores public opinion, the other, private opinion; one, fame, the other, desert; one, feats, the other, humility; one, lucre, the other, love; one, monopoly, and the other, hospitality of mind. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
