Taken from my book 113 Reasons to Read These Quotes:
Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.
Booker T. Washington (1856 – 1915)
I have learned that should you decide to define Your own meaning of success, then overcoming the obstacles in Your life are accepted and agreed to by a more compelling self.
What about your thoughts…
113 Reasons to Read these Quotes has come about simply because of the response to my first Quote book ‘Life Cycles’ 113 Quotes to Guide Your Daily Decisions. People simply wanted to know my perspective because I asked them theirs. This Quote book contains the same quotes along with my interpretation of each quote which comes about from my life’s experiences and how I chose to interpret them. As in the previous book you will have space to add your thoughts, as the exercise is for you to identify with the quotes, no matter what state you are in, and consider it’s relevance to the situation you face. Hence, your own thoughts and ability to evaluate your needs carries the weight. As you perform this exercise, of the mind more often, you will begin to develop confidence in your ability to call upon and believe in yourself instead of looking for outside confirmation of what you instinctly know to be right for you. Without outside evaluation. Without blame or guilt or condemnation. The outcome is the outcome and we must all learn from our experience. Painful or pleasurable, it is the ability to learn from others experiences, (or more painfully our own) that opens the doors of possibilities and desire to move on.
