What Is Success?

It's doing your job the best you can,
And being just to your fellow man;
Not making money, but holding friends,
And staying true to your aims and ends.

It's figuring how and learning why,
And looking forward and thinking high,
And dreaming little and doing much;
It's keeping always in closest touch
With what is finest in word and deed;
It's daring blithely the field of chance
While making of labor a brave romance.

It's going onward despite defeat
And fighting staunchly, but keeping sweet.
It's being clean and it's playing fair,
It's laughing lightly at Dame Despair,
It's looking up at the stars above,
And drinking deeply of life and love.

It's stuggling on with the will to win,
But taking loss with a cheerful grin.
It's sharing sorrow and work and mirth,
And making better this good old earth.
It's serving, striving through strain and stress,
It's doing your noblest - that's Success
