This is a great post on the true meaning of success…

“To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.” – Emerson

Michael Boyle's Strengthcoach.com Blog

My friend Coach Jeff Higuera nailed it today with his blog on success. Jeff used this quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson  on what success is…  

“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.”

Think about that for a few minutes “the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children”. So true.
