Success is a moment-to-momentdecision. When faced with life’s challenges, do you cower and retreat?Or, do you meet the moment head-on? To me, success is about havinga growth mindset and all of the qualities that come with it. Learningfrom criticism is success. Turning a failure into an opportunity for growthis success. Finding optimism in the face of unrelenting doubt is success.Setting goals that stretch you, is success.To stand up and face thechallenge no matter how overwhelmed one feels is success. Winningdespite ourselves, is success.

Although I didn’t outwardly practice this Buddhismfor many years, I think the philosophy sunk in. As a child I heard phraseslike, “never give up” and “everyone has a Buddha nature”. Lookingback now I realize, I’ve always had a fighting spirit even when life wasn’tgoing the way I’d hoped. I never gave up. I would look for the lessonand the opportunities in every event. It's amazing to think that I waslearning how to be successful in the same moments that I felt like afailure.
