“Of course there is no formula for success, except perhaps an unconditional acceptance of life, and what it brings.” -Arthur Rubinstein
I think that this must be true. There is no one way to succeed, to flourish, to excel. But if you have an acceptance for what life is going to throw your way, whatever that may be, you’re automatically that must more ready to deal with it. Success, in my estimation, is an attitude of positivity. It is an daily choice, perhaps even an hourly choice, or a momentary choice. Success is preparation. Determination. Hard work. Follow through. And at the end of the day, success is taking stock of shortcomings and arming oneself against them for the next day. Success is knowing that you can’t be beaten down. Success is the decision to pursue excellence.
Tomorrow, let’s all be successful.
