During morning circle, I asked, “what does it mean to be successful?”
J, K and E started off with the responses of “good grades, good college, good job.”
S said, “money,” and several others laughed and echoed his idea.
Then C said, “I think if I became very good at something. An expert, that would mean I’m successful.”
C called on me. After some thought, I said, “To be able to do something I loved.”
I passed it to M who said, “I would feel successful if I could give to other people who are in need. There are so many people who have so little. If I could give to them, that would mean I’m successful.”
After that, X said, “I want to do like M, and be in the MLB.” X passed it to G.
G said, “I wanna do like M, and be in the NBA.”
M’s idea was infectious. It made so much sense.
So often our morning circle brings out surprising and beautiful thoughts. Things I would never have anticipated.
These are moments of success doing something I love.
What does success mean for you?
