WHAT IS SUCCESS?
 
To laugh often and love much;
 
To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
 
To earn the approval of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
 
To appreciate beauty;
 
To find the best in others;
 
To give of one's self;
 
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition;
 
To have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation;
 
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived...
 
This it to have succeeded.
 
 
RALPH WALDO EMERSON
POET, ESSAVIST, AND PHILOSOPHER

About the Author

Dr. Steve Stephens is a psychologist, Sunday school teacher, storyteller, seminar speaker, and author of some twenty books with more than a million copies sold. But most important, he seeks to follow God, be a good husband, love his three wonderful children, and live a decent, compassionate, meaningful life.
In his free time, Steve has squeezed in being a youth pastor, a radio talk show host, a guest professor, a president of a community marriage policy, and a board member on various Christian ministries.

Steve has a master’s degree in pastoral psychology and a doctorate in counseling/clinical psychology from Western Seminary and George Fox University.

Steve and his wife, Tami, have been married for twenty-four years and live on an acre and a half of gardens in Happy Valley, Oregon. They love to laugh, read, garden, hike, explore, barbecue, visit friends, and have fun with their three children—Brittany, Dylan, and Dusty. They also like to escape to Mexico, Hawaii, or the Caribbean any chance they get.
