Monday Morning Motivator & Some Points to Ponder...

     All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure.
          ~~Mark Twain

     Success is something many of us strive for; but how does one measure success and what does it really mean? To some, success is equated to having "things" such as wealth. To others, having strong family ties and friends is important. Simply put, success is what we envision it to be.
     Some folks are and remain ignorant in a lot of areas and over confident in areas where they do not need to be. Ignorance is not always bliss and to remain so is asinine. Brazen fools barge in where angels fear to tread, so open doors slowly. You never know what is on the other side. The world is constantly changing and so will our vision of success. Be flexible and change along with it...

Good Morning Michael, change is constant. We can either go with it, or hide under the covers. Have a great Monday Michael!

Michael.....everyone has he/her own definition of success and the method to get there.....some of it's frightening.....some of it is heartwarming.....different strokes for different folks.

Good Morning Michael,

Thanks for the post. Very nice photo. And if the moth fails to change it will never become a butterfly. Have a great day.

Good Morning Michael.  I think we all need your Monday Morning Motivator every week.  I especially like the butterfly, it reminds me that in order to be our best we often need to change drastivally.  Happy Day and Happy Week to you.

Well put....I remember I used to always say when I was starting out after college at a job with tons of executives, they liked me so much and I think they felt like they could trust me more than the other sales folks b/c they didn't think I knew anything...

To me success is measured not only in how much did I earn on any particular day, but in how many people did I make smile today.

Hey Michael, great words of wisdom yet again :) This is very true, it is what you consider "wealth." This does not always mean money. Thanks for sharing!
