 What is Success? Scroll

On the very day that the Wise Old Sage received a message from the King ordering him to come to the capital; a young man and women approached him and asked the question “What is success?”

The wise old sage answered: My son and daughter success is the same as Truth and Beauty! It is in the eyes of the beholder.” What one person sees as beauty may not be to another, what one person perceives to be the truth may not be to someone else. Success to one person may seem as a failure to another; but in the end it is up to you and you along to decide what is beautiful, what is true and finally if you feel you have achieved success.

My son and daughter your most precious gift in life is the freedom of choice so let No One take this gift from you.

The young man and women thanked the wise old sage and left pondering the thought, “that if it is to be then it is me alone who should decide my fate.”
