THE COST OF SUCCESS

Article Summary   by:qinqinsun     Original Author: qinqinsun
ª
 
As a young fellow ,I was in a hurry to hit the top.like a horse wearing blinders,I raced ahead seeing nothing but the finish line.The years flew by.I had fame ,financial security and a devoted family.I raced on.I needed more success.And one day it occurred to me how much I had missed!Ithought of firiends collected,and then neglected;of my library ,full of books with uncut pages;of the first faltering steps of my little girls that Inever saw;of their tears Ihadn''t the chance to wipe away;of the bright sayings heard only fromtheir tears I hadn''t the chance to wipe away;of the bright sayings heard only from their mother over a phone ;of the vacations promised to my wife and children but never taken .All these resulted from my mere vain pursuit of success!Ever since that dawming of the truth .Ihade made it a point to pause now and again to enjoy the scenery .I have come to realize that by going too fast Ihave missed too much.And how fortunate I am to be aware of the precious truth in time !
