Success comes down to one word

LOVE. ❤️

Love yourself.

Love others.

Love thy neighbor.

Love your job.

Love to show love.

In the biography The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life, Buffet offers this advice to students at Georgia Tech.

“Basically, when you get to my age, you’ll really measure your success in life by how many of the people you want to have love you actually do love you.

I know many people who have a lot of money, and they get testimonial dinners and they get hospital wings named after them. But the truth is that nobody in the world loves them.

That’s the ultimate test of how you have lived your life. The trouble with love is that you can’t buy it. You can buy sex. You can buy testimonial dinners. But the only way to get love is to be lovable. It’s very irritating if you have a lot of money. You’d like to think you could write a check: I’ll buy a million dollars’ worth of love. But it doesn’t work that way. The more you give love away, the more you get.”

Love is quid pro quo. Like a lighthouse, you give out the energy you get back.
