Success without honor is an unseasoned dish; it will satisfy your hunger, but it won’t taste good. ~Joe Paterno
Believe it or not, you don’t have to lie, cheat or steal to be successful. You don’t have to compromise your morals just to get ahead.
How happy you are is a good measurement of how successful you are. If you’re pursuing a goal that doesn’t bring you happiness, it’s really not worth it. Success ain’t free, make sure you can afford the price you have to pay for it.
