Success is to be Measured...


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

Very cool quote. Incidentally, he better not hang out in the field for too long ... I hear the tractors coming.

dan- I think that's how he found success, by getting out of the fields...he heard the tractors!

Yes, this is beautiful, Getzapped. Just right.
In overcoming obstacles, doesn't one hear the loud heartbeat of success. :-)

Oh I love this quote! It even ties in with my "sprout" post I think. I truly believe this with all my heart. I think it's the struggles that make us who we are, not the things that come easy. When we're dealt something hard to deal with, I believe we should see the lesson in it and embrace it with all we have. Only then can we be successful and move on. Thanks for sharing another gem :)
