How do you define success?
Be real; I would hate people to not want material goods. But that’s me. I think that living well is the best revenge, though now that I think of it, I have nothing or nobody to avenge..
When I was about 16 I realized that my family had more money than the average upper-middle class family in our suburban hamlet. My family had never been “showy” as some of their friends in more affluen areas were. We lived well, traveled to distant shores, but our house was regular suburban, our ‘big” car was a Buick Electra, a Buick with the engine of a Cadillic.
We were solid; we were grounded. My parents were kind of cool, as evidenced in other posts, but taught fave sis and I that good values were as important as good manners and would take you anyplace.
Success to me is never based on how large your house is, what kind of car you drive, what your occupation is, but it’s something less tangible.
How you impact on people? What difference do you make to other people? How many people you make laugh? I’m just beginning to get into this, but I have company, so if you have any ideas….
