    So, if one found a way to just be happy with themself, irregardless of success or failure, that might bring true happiness.

      Hmmmmm, I love your question ma’am.

      But, I’d like to think that TRUE HAPPINESS is the utmost goal in life….. If anyone found a way of being happy with themselves at all times….., then they are SUCCESSFUL on their own path.

      Being a FAILURE or a SUCCESS, isn’t always about acquiring fame, wealth & luxury. — It’s about you being comfortable in your own skin. It is about you being at peace with life & your inner being/self.

      Yes, the luxuries of life is good & are meant to make our lives easier….But, one thing we need to understand is that, anyone can successfully acquire all the wealth & luxuries of this world…. BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN THEY PERCEIVE THEMSELVES AS A SUCCESS.

      We all need to pursue what truly brings us the happiness we deserve in life.

  5. So true! Never giving your best and then one day realising that none of it happened because you didn’t give your best! So can relate to this. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Being ALL that we Can be ought to be the norm; not the exception of our lives.

    It’s NOT about success or failure; it’s about being true to yourself; and that requires that a maximum effort to do the BEST that YOU Can everytime.

    Thanks Kally, GREAT message!
    God Bless
