What Is Success?



Very frequently I'm asked to give my definition of success. Here is one of my responses: I believe success is getting a reasonable number of the things money will buy and all of the things that money won't buy. (People who say they're not interested in money will lie about other things, too!)

I confess that I like the things money will buy. I like to live in a nice house, drive a nice car, wear nice clothes, belong to the country club, play on beautiful golf courses, travel to nice places, take my family out for relaxing dinners. I like all of those things, but I love the things that money won't buy. Money will buy me that house, but not a home. It'll buy me a companion, but not a friend. It will buy me pleasure, but not happiness. Money will buy me a bed, but not a good night's sleep. It will buy me a good time, but not peace of mind.

I'm grateful for the fact that I have many of the things money will buy and all of the things that money won't buy. I know many other people who can make the same statement. I mention that only to say that these things are available and, by following the right procedures, playing by the rules of the game, and dealing with all phases of your life, you can have them all. That's exciting! I encourage you to buy into the total success concept and I will SEE YOU AT THE TOP!
