What does the word "success" mean to you? There’s no shortage of opinions about what Success should mean and upon which particular Altar of Success we ought to sacrifice our lives and energies. That doesn’t mean those opinions are worth paying attention to. As a quote attributed to Lily Tomlin put it nicely, ‘the trouble with the rat race is that even if you win, you’re still a rat.’
In that spirit, I enjoyed reading the reminder in this picture. The quote is from Ichiro Suzuki, a baseball player (currently for the Seattle Mariners) and clearly a success in his field. I found Ichiro’s words printed on a Starbucks coffee cup, and fancied them even more than the maple latte inside. I hope you enjoy them too.
P.S.: Yes, I do more reading than just Starbucks cups.
