    What does success look like for you?  How do you know if your life is successful?

    Success comes to the person who never gives up on whatever it is that they are going after. John Wooden said it best:

    “Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.”

    This is a great question and hard to answer for so many people. I have adopted the definition of success promulgated in 1955 by a World War II hero by the name of Earl Nightingale. Earl was one of only 100 survivors of the attack on the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor.
    After the war he wrote a speech which he delivered before his insurance agents. That speech entitled "The Strangest Secret" contains the following definition of success, which I teach to my college age coaching clients. It is: "The progressive realization of a worthy ideal."  Studied, it will reveal a tremendously simple reality and that is; it really doesn't matter what you decide you want to do, success comes by passionately sticking to a worthy goal and continually improving moment by moment.
    This may not be for everyone, but for me, it works!
    I believe a copy can be found on YouTube or perhaps you can Google it. It's worth the time to listen.

    Throughout our lives we strive for success, be it wealth, travel, or the need for the next best thing. For some less fortunate it might be finding shelter, food or even water. My thoughts are regardless of your status the main thing is your health.
    All the money in the world will not buy another sunrise.
    Providing you are healthy the one thing you should strive for is Peace of Mind.
    At some time you must accept your status, whatever it may be.
    Best Wishes.

    I'd have to say, that looks pretty successful to me.
