On Success...

It is strange how busy we get battling with the daily affairs that we fail to stop and admire the simplest things in life - how conveniently we manage to ignore the obvious and move on as if it never happened, running blindly towards fame, fortune and success yet missing the essence which makes one's personality. How unfortunate we are not to feel, enjoy and realise where true happiness lies and how each one of us can make a difference. As beautifully explained by an American poet 'Ralph Waldo Emerson' some simple yet powerful and inspirational words to follow...

To laugh often and much
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
Or a garden patch…
To know even one life has breathed easier
Because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded
