August 7 ~  Pinnacle of Success Embracing the Present

"You have reached the pinnacle of success as soon as you become uninterested in money, compliments, or publicity." ~ Thomas Wolfe

Honolulu Blow Hole with a beautiful rainbow

Halona Point on the island of Oahu features the Blow Hole, Hawaii's "Old Faithful." The royal blue Pacific is pushed by the waves through a lava hole.

The geyser is a beautiful treasure to behold. The "pinnacle of success" is to see the rainbow that sometimes rises with the mist. On a sunny day, there will always be a rainbow...

by Ralph Waldo Emerson

To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you lived.
This is to have succeeded.
