Arthur Berry was described by Time as "the slickest second-story man in the East," truly one of the most famous jewel thieves of all times. In his years of crime, he committed as many as 150 burglaries and stole jewels valued between $5 and $10 million. He seldom robbed from anyone not listed in the Social Register and often did his work in a tuxedo. On an occasion or two, when caught in the act of a crime by a victim, he charmed his way out of being reported to the police.

The final course in that meal includes happiness, accomplishment, and purpose. So stick around for dessert!

Is there a “secret” to success? A lot of people will tell you there is and they are happy to sell you all kinds of products that will push their idea. I have found that most people have a hard time even defining success. Why is that? It is because success is a very broad term. There aren’t two people in the world that have the exact same definition of success. For one person it is monetary, for another it is social, and for many others it revolves around a career. Our personal definition of success is a blend of results in many different areas important to us individually.
So is there a formula for achieving success that works for everyone? Yes there is! It is a universal formula that works no matter how you define success.… Read the rest!Read More »
