Quote 8

“Success isn’t just about what you accomplish in your life,
it’s about what you inspire others to do.”
                             -Unknown

When I read this quote, I stopped to consider the many times I asked myself whether what I’m doing in life is worth it. Then, I realized that if I could change or inspire or affect someone in a positive way, it was.

This goes for our many roles. Some parents feel success when their children grow up to be wonderful citizens. Some teachers feel success when they see students utilizing what they have learned in their life. Some dog trainers feel success when they find pet guardians adopting the techniques they taught. Some dentists feel success when patients return to their offices with a better hygiene routine. Some writers feel success when readers come up to them and say the book helped them deal with an aspect of their life.

Whatever the accomplishment, you know there’s someone who’s inspired by what we do and say. And it has nothing to do with money or material things. The best things in life have to do with what we build, communicate, and share with others.

It’s important to take the time to think about the good things we have done and how others have used it to better themselves. Success is that feeling you get when you wake up and know your actions have touched someone’s heart and soul.

Now, that’s something worth accomplishing.
