A young man and an older man were sitting next to each other in a park. Out of nowhere the older man says, “Success comes full circle, doesn’t it?”

Perplexed the young man asks, “What do you mean?”

“Well, think about it,” the older man says. “When you’re four years old, success is not wetting your pants.

“By the time you’re 12, success is having friends.

“When you’re 16, success is getting your driver’s licence.

“At the age of 20, success is having sex.

“By age 35, success is having money.”

The young man is leaning in, eager to know where the older man is going.

“At 60 years of age, success is having money.

“At 70, success is having sex.

“By age 80, success is having your driver’s licence.

“And by 85 years of age, success is having friends.

“When you reach 90 years of age, success is not wetting your pants.”

The older man now looks directly at the young man and says, “It comes full circle, whether you like it or not!”
