Success is as unique as each one of us. We all have a story. We all have special interests, and incredible talents. Success is a combination of knowledge, joy, and character you acquire throughout life, environments you help create, and relationships that you nurture. When combined in a meaningful way this success will be forged through balance.

"Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing." Abraham Lincoln
"I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has had to overcome while trying to succeed." Booker T. Washington
"Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming." John Wooden
"Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort." Franklin D. Roosevelt
