Here is how I know someone is successful — If you are able to give from your abundance then you are successful.

This is Fred Gratzon, author of the excellent book The Lazy Way to Success, in top form giving the best and shortest definition of success I’ve ever seen.
Having abundance is not enough – you are only truly successful when you can share your abundance. And if you only read one book on success, make it Fred’s – it seriously changed my thinking on work, and is one of my favorite books about happiness at work.
Fred’s thought reminded me of the ancient Greeks – they measured a person’s wealth not by how much he owned but by how much he gave away.
