Q: Tell us about your hobbies.
A: I love swimming and gardening. I swim for hours because it allows me to connect with myself with every stroke, and it’s a great exercise for the whole body. Gardening because it connects me with the earth. That’s when I am outside with the birds and the squirrels who always steal my tomato before I get to them.

Thus you are a successful person when you attain happiness from within.
