Two Kinds of Success

“There are two kinds of success. One is the very rare kind that comes to the man who has the power to do what no one else has the power to do. That is genius. But the average man who wins what we call success is not a genius. He is a man who has merely the ordinary qualities that he shares with his fellows, but who has developed those ordinary qualities to a more than ordinary degree.” - Theodore Roosevelt

True. To that, I admire and respect more the successful ordinary man. As I've long believed, success is not where you are now but the journey you took to where you are now. It is not by wealth, power or fame that I consider one successful but the passion, integrity, happiness and love he has for himself, others and what he does.
