Reading Material: The Way We Live
Good fortune may sometimes bring success sooner than it otherwise would have come. And bad luck may sometimes cause a temporary setback. In the long run, though, success in life is not much affected by luck or by accidents. It is based on the character with which you live from day to day, moment to moment.

In fact, success is not really defined by any particular point that you reach. It is much more a matter of the way that you live.

In order to be successful, you do not need any particular circumstance or set of events. Real success comes from living with purpose and meaning.

That's something that requires no one else's consent, assistance or permission. It's something you can begin to do righthereandnow.

Fortune can bring you a fleeting windfall or a momentary setback. The way you choose to live, though, is what brings true, lasting success.

There is a light that shines beyond all things on earth, beyond us all, beyond the heavens. This is the light that shines in our hearts.


Have a successfully shiny day,
