The key to success

“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”

  1. I’m bowled over by your photos. You have a great ‘eye’ for subject matter, a first priority in photography, IMHO. Then, you do an outstanding job of taking the photograph. I’m adding you to my limited list of ‘follows’. You needn’t be flattered, I just couldn’t handle the flood of blogs if I followed every one I liked. Keep up the good work!

  2. Yes, happiness must be seen as a goal and not a mean. When you finally achieve inner happiness then you can consider yourself successful. Really good reminder. I really appreciate it!

    1. Funnily enough one of my teacher’s told my dad that when I was choosing what to study at university. My dad was pushing for maths, but my teacher told him it had to be what I enjoyed the most, and Russian won!!

        1. No, my Russian is now atrocious. I managed to use it a tiny bit in Moldova – I managed to buy wine and honey πŸ™‚ I’ll need to work hard to pull it back. I love learning languages but to be fluent you need to work hard and preferably live there, and without anyone that speaks English!

        2. That’s very true! Shame to let a language go. I hate that muffled sense where the language comes at you and you recognise bits but can’t put the whole together. I shouldn’t be here but working on audio stuff 😦
