The Meaning of Success

By Joe Haefner

We got this quote from our coaching friend Ken Sartini on the meaning of life. We thought it would be a good idea to share it:

“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is the meaning of success.”
