Are you living at the top?

You know you are at the top when:

1. You clearly understand that failure is an event, not a person; that yesterday ended last night, and today is your brand new day.
2. You have made friends with your past, are focused on the present, and optimistic about your future.
3. You know that success (a win) doesn't make you, and failure (a loss) doesn't break you.
4. You are filled with faith, hope, and love.

5. You are mature enough to delay gratification and shift your focus from rights to your responsibilities.
6. You have gained the love and respect of those who know you best.
7. You understand that others can give you pleasure, but genuine happiness comes when you do things for others.
8. You are pleasant to the grouch, courteous to the rude, and generous to the needy.
9. You love the unlovable , give hope to the hopeless, friendship to the friendless, and encouragement to the discouraged.
10. You can look back in forgiveness, forward in hope, down in compassion, and up with gratitude.

I feel like I try to live at the top, but my pride often gets in the way.
