A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Real success begins in the heart.

Steve Kaufman in a recent post on lifehack http://www.lifehack.org/articles/lifehack/set-ambitious-goals-but-learn-to-accept-what-you-achieve.html stated that success begins in the mind. I disagree. The heart brings the motivation, will and perseverance to succeed. I know this from personal experience and simply watching the smaller, slower, and weaker football player consistently make hit and make tackles when the more 'talented' give up. The mind is poweful, but losing heart is everything.
