Winnie-the-Pooh on Success: In Which, You, Pooh and Friends Learn about the Most Important Subject of All
Suppose," said Pooh thoughtfully, "there are two dreams that someone has, and they both seem like they would be Very Good to be a success at being. It seems to me that would be Very Bothering. It's like deciding which pot of honey to eat."
Are you as confused as Pooh about success and how to achieve it? Only decades ago, the definition of "success" was fairly straightforward: "the attainment of wealth, position, honors, and the like" For Pooh it is a simple asacquiring more honey; for Piglet, it's far more serious: avoiding dangerous Heffalumps . But in these far more complicated times, people — as well as certain treasured animals of a certain forest — have all sorts of different ideas on the subject.
What does the success formula taste like?
"It's not that kind of formula, Silly Bear," Said the Stranger. He took a sheet of paper out of his case and began writing on it.
When he finished, he turned it around and showed it to his friends. This is what he had written:
- Select a Dream
- Use you dreams to set a Goal
- Create a Plan
- Consider Resources
- Enhance Skills and Abilities
- Spend time Wisely
- Start! Get Organized and God
"It spells Suchness!" shouted Piglet
"Close, Piglet," said The Stranger. "It Spells Success."
