"Success is waking up in the morning and looking forward to that day.
Success is putting your head on your pillow at night and being proud of how you lived that day.
Success is choosing a path, or a partner, or a job, or a hobby that makes you smile and that makes you laugh.
Success is living a life with compassion and joy and genuine wonder and giving that compassion, joy and wonder back to others.
Always, always give back. Believe me when I say it is the most satisfying and meaningful thing that you will ever do."
