THE MEASURE OF SUCCESS
Not to climb the highest mountain but too climb many mountains as high as you can,
To win the marathon not as important as too finish many.
To sail around the world is great, too sail to places of dreams greater,
It’s not to sing the best song ever written but too write many good songs.
To work one hard day in your life is no accomplishment,
Too work hard every day and give it your all is of greatness.
If to you having many friends is the greatest,
Then having one great friend is of value like no other.
If you can touch the world with many beautiful poems then that is beauty,
To hold onto only one of importance holds no treasure.
If you are of morality, if your word means something and your handshake is strong
Then you are successful, if you are not a quitter and hold your head high.
The measure of success holds a different meaning for all people.
