If you’re busy doing what you love, you’ve succeeded

I’ve been reading a lot of books lately about “successful” people.  One that I would recommend is “When I Stop Talking, You’ll Know I’m Dead” by Jerry Weintraub.  The reason I like this book is because he points out a major factor in achieving success.  It’s not about being a celebrity or reaching a certain level of income.  Success is only achieved when you are content with your standard of living, AND when you’re busy doing what you love.  He shares some examples of how 30 million dollars isn’t a success because money is completely different measurement.  When you’re occupying your time with purposeful and fulfilling actions that you love, then you’ve succeeded.
