Success: To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded!
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Sidenote: It is important to take a moment away from all the negativity and get a laugh in. Laughter helps to lighten the mood that you are in. It might even allow you to put things in a different perspective. Additionally, I am sure we have all been betrayed by at least one “friend” in our lives. We have to learn to figure out who is real and who is not and keep moving forward. We cannot let one person get in the way of our path to success and continued happiness.
Stop. Take a deep breath. Smile. Set your goals for the day and make it happen! Success does not happen by chance!
