George Sheehan

"Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be."

— George Sheehan
American Writer
1918 - 1993

People define success in different ways.  Some define it by the size of their bank account or the house they own or the number of cars they drive.  Some people define success by the number of college degrees they have or the places they have traveled or the friends they have.  Artists often define success by the amount of money they receive for a piece of work or the number of paintings they produce.  Writers define success by the fact that a publisher has published their book or that they made it on the Best Sellers list.  I believe Sheehan gets it right in this quote.  Success does not come from what we do, but from what we become.  Are you the person you are meant to be?
