“Real success is not on the stage, but off the stage as a
human being, and how you get along with your fellow man.”  – Sammy Davis, Jr

Everyone wants success, and yet they often don’t know when
they have it. For most, it is the maddening chase toward a better way of life
or more of something; more fame, power, recognition, money, or material stuff.
For some, it is the understanding of a loving partner, the love of their child,
or the people that they can count on when life throws them a curve.
Real success is not to be sought after in the outer world,
but discovered in your inner world. I am not condemning the stuff of life. We
all want the things that life offers. But we don’t need as much as we think we
do. Sooner or later, you will discover that real success are friends,
strangers, and anyone who crosses our path. 
It is kindness shared, support given and received, listening,
giving and caring. These will endure while your car rusts, your toys break, and
you tire of the temporary gratifications that bring you what you think is real. 
My dear reader! What matters is people. What lasts is love.
What counts are true friends, and if you treasure these; you can count yourself
a success. Enjoy your beautiful week!
