The Key to Success…

I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody. ~Bill Cosby

I just liked this one today so I thought I’d share…let this quote sink in a bit.  Isn’t it amazing that sometimes when you are desperately trying to please everyone (and not yourself) that you find that you’re not pleasing anyone at all ~ even when you’re giving your best?

I think it’s interesting how we sometimes put others’ needs and wants ahead of our own…and end up with the short end of the stick so to say…and yet, when we do put our needs first, sometimes we’re labeled selfish or uncaring.   I think it’s just what others are used to when you’ve been a certain way for most of your life…or when they think they know you, but they really don’t.

To me, Success is…being the best me I can be by being kind to others, being happy and being present in my life…I enjoy spreading sunshine with my business as well.

What is success for you?

One thought on “The Key to Success…

  1. I remember years ago that Oprah talked about giving up the “disease to please”, and I still think it was the best piece of advice she ever gave her audiences (and that’s saying something!). With you completely on this!
