How do you define success?
Success is doing what you love and loving people while you do it.
That answer was from the glorious, adorable performer Anthony Ramos.
He is an absolute joy to watch, to hear, to feel through his performances, and I highly recommend taking note of him in the recent release of the recording of “Hamilton”, found on Disney+.
But that is somewhat beside the point here… the point is that his words in response to this simple question speak quite strongly to me.
I have never worded it as he did, but his words give exact language to my wordless thoughts and feelings on the subject of success…. success is not about money for me, not about social status nor fame nor beauty nor where nor how I live… as Anthony Ramos said (or, perhaps he wrote it, as it was a written article, and didn’t use quotation marks [nerd alert here]), success in my life is about doing what I love and loving while I do it.
Thank you for the words, sir… they are greatly appreciated. 🙂
P.S. Gosh, in a different world, I would love to learn to love this man, and for many reasons! Alas, he has found his partner in love, and I wish them all the best as partners to one another. 😉
