HAPPY HOLIDAYS!  Welcome to the December edition of Pathways to Success. It's hard to believe that we're closing out the 2013 calendar year. This is a great time to reflect on the last 12 months and see what lessons can be learned from high's and low's of the year. It is also a time to reflect upon today and how much we have actually accomplished. It's a great time to acknowledge the efforts taken in 2013 and give ourselves a "pat-on-the-back." This month's articles are focused on Success. What does it mean to be able to succeed? Are we truly invested in ourselves and not risk averse to fail? The first article, "Fail to Succeed" addresses this issue.  


The second article discusses having the persistence, dedication and the "spirit" of attitude to achieve what you set out for yourself.  


Please forward this email to colleagues and friends if you find them valuable. And, if you haven't done so already, please sign up on my website to receive continuing editions. Thanks for your continued support and interest. Have a wonderful Holiday Season. Enjoy reading!

However, that desire must also enlist the courage to assume the risk and responsibility to pursue that goal. Everyone has their own benchmarks for success: be it financial; accumulation of prized material items; status and recognition; or peace-of-mind. Each of us may have our own metrics
