Define success. Define failure.

Success? 
Inner satisfaction. 
Outer satisfaction. 
Something learned. 
Something relearned. 
Achievement, mine or others.
Both.
Alignment.
Personal.
Professional.
Growth.
When you want to stare at something. 
Or run your fingers along it. 
Pride. 
Surprise. 
Validation. 
Product. 
More process. 
Leads you somewhere surprisingly inspiring. 
Sweet.
Sweat. 
Meant to be shared.
Given.
Opens windows. 
Opens doors.
Abundantly unseen.
Fleeting.

Failure? 
Opportunity.

Very nice! It's important to remember there is more than 1 way to define success.

Confession: Poetry scares me.

@AC Thanks. It's just rambling.
@OT That's what I was doing yesterday.
@Windsmoke It's just brainstorming.
@Angela Yes I agree--there are many.

Great.

@Elly Don't think of it as poetry then; think of it as prose written with fridge magnets.

Failure = Lack of success.

I'm using this for my boys as an educational attitude brainwashing tool. (I like to start when they are young.)

The last line is the most important.
