Not all success can be counted in dollars; not all richness is measured by money. “The great secret of success is to go through life as a person who never gets used up,” said Albert Schweitzer.
Retire upon yourself and look for the ultimate cause of things inside you.
Look within yourself for the ultimate inspiration, and follow the true feelings you discover. “One of my favorite methods is to whisper,” said Alfred Hitchcock. “I’ve discovered the best work is done with sweet reason.” Act upon your own conscience -that guides; that judges your actions and signals your behavior. “Conscience is the inner voice that warns us that someone may be looking,” wrote H.L.Mencken.
Accomplish what you desire; fulfill your inner yearnings. But don’t compromise your deepest feelings. “We do our best that we know how at the moment, and if it doesn’t turn out, we modify it,” said F.D. Roosevelt. Follow the paths that life offers you and live the fullest existence you can.
You see, in the midst of our yearning for ‘success’ we should not lose the ultimate, genuine success, which is to live a good life. Take for instance, if money was not an issue, and you did not have to do what you doing just to have it, if you had it all; what would you be doing with your time? That is what life is all about. Follow your heart, you are more likely to make a fortune that way than otherwise. It is good to retire rich and to retire young however. It is good to retire wealthy. Being rich is merely having a lot of money and not time to spend it doing the things you want with the people you want, although you can afford to. B
