‘One should not measure success by counting how well developed your cheque account is!’ said the spirit of wisdom. I had taken pride in the amount of surplus I owned. ‘How would you suggest I measure my success?’ I was defiant.
‘The success of one’s life can be measure by using three very simple yardsticks,’ The spirit of wisdom moved to invisibility as he spoke. ‘Do you have something to love? Do you have something to do? Do you have something in which to hope?’
Success is far more meaningful than just counting your excess.
