What makes for a successful life? Is it fame and fortune? According to “Psychology of Success,” a successful life is one of personal fulfillment. Being fulfilled is having meaning in your work and personal life. This quote means so much to me personally, “Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life…as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.” Booker T. Washington
Success is a personal journey. For some it is being a great parent, for others it is working towards and achieving a degree, a career position, a title. Still others it is being of service in some very tangible way. I love the idea of success being a personal inner journey that is lived day by day. It is a guide, a barometer.
