# 34 – To Have Succeeded & Zig Ziglar (video)

Standard

The Sky’s The Limit #4

To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children …
to leave the world a better place …
to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson was radical. Way before the Civil War, he believed that everything is connected to God; therefore, divine. Because of that divinity-by-association, he wrote,

Trust thyself; every heart vibrates to that iron string.
Accept the place the divine providence has found for you,
the society of your contemporaries,
the connection of events.
“Self Reliance”

Through SoulSongz’s “The Sky’s The Limit” series, I seek different voices to remind that I can accomplish a lot. And a lot can begin by lifting my head. I’m well acquainted with how sidewalks and dirt and rocks look. I watch them to keep from tripping. But to stop from time to time and study what’s up … whether day or dark, clear or cloudy, to experience the world above, ah, that’s special. Sky-gazing, this week,

I ask: How can I leave the world a better place?

I affirm: I can start by smiling. I can begin by listening. I can take great joy in offering these gifts, and I can _____________________________________________.

Okay, I’ll try this approach on a moment-to-moment, case-by-case basis.

What do you ask? What do you affirm?
