What is success?

October 20, 2009

At God’s footstool, to confess
A poor soul knelt and bowed his head.

“I failed,” he cried. The master said,
“Thou didst thy best. That is success.”
– Anonymous

Success is the peace of mind attained only through self satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to become the best of which you’re capable.- John Wooden

“Four things a man must learn to do
If he would make his life more true:
To think without confusion clearly,
To love his fellow man sincerely,
To act from honest motives purely,
To trust in God and heaven securely.”

“Be true to yourself,
help others,
make friendship a fine art,
drink deeply from good books,
make each day your masterpiece,
build a shelter against a rainy day by the life you live,
and give thanks for your blessings and pray for guidance every day”

2 weeks since my last post.

have i neglected the time to reflect?
have i been living a life unchecked?
have i forgotten His words and precepts?

Thru a prayer, He awaits us to connect..
to unravel His plan..perfect.

perhaps’ my turn to act?

Smiling is infectious,

you catch it like the flu

When someone smiled at me today I started smiling too;

I passed around the corner,

and someone saw my grin;

When he smiled I realised I’d passed it on to him;

I thought about that smile,

then I realised its worth;

A single smile, just like mine,

could pass around the earth;

So if you feel a smile begin,

don’t leave it undetected;

Lets start an epidemic quick,

and get the world infected

Up, Up and Awayyyy…

A journey UP too exciting not to be jotted…
thoughts and reflections too precious not to be blogged..

however, the bed beckons.
task deferred, i reckon.

*cross my heart*
its coming right UP.
