So many people think that how rich you are is how successful you are. But there are a lot of people with a pile of money who have very messy lives. They have broken family relationships, they can feel alienated and isolated or loved only for what they can provide.
As I get older (and hopefully wiser) I am coming to realize that success is measured by how content you are with the life you're living. This may involve vast sums of money, or it may involve having just enough to meet your needs. Love and connection are what truly matter - feeling a part of a family or a community or a group of friends is more valuable than dollars and cents.
Let's refocus on what we measure our success by. Let's look at people who have a smile and a winning way about them and model ourselves on them, rather than on how big our house is or how many exotic vacations we've been on. Let's focus on happiness and contentment!
