What People Forget about Success

Five Essential Things to Remember about Success
by Chris Esty on the Bible Post, May 2, 2013

So I spent some time thinking about what it means to be successful, and have come up with five essential things worth remembering,

dealing with subject matter that a lot of people struggle with. I hope you’ll find these thoughts to be helpful in your journey through life!


1. No Other Way but God’s Way

God will always give you the best in life. It’s yours. You simply need to open your hands and receive it. Once you do that, you will have something in your possession worth more than anything you could ever hope to gain from the world. God’s way is always best. Follow His lead.

2. Success Doesn’t Define You

Just because you don’t have the measure of success you hope to achieve, it doesn’t mean you’re a failure. It simply means you have a goal to work towards . . . one step at a time.

3. You’re Worth More than That

Just because someone has something you lack, it doesn’t make him or her better than you. Work hard to materialize your dreams, but don’t let materialistic things rob you of your self-worth. You will always be more valuable than the things you work for.

4. Generosity Goes a Long Way

A person’s social status isn’t what determines his or her level of success; attitude does. There’s nothing to admire about those who only live for themselves. Don’t forget your roots. Give thanks to God for the success you have by generously sharing it with others.

5. Accept Your Limitations

What you want to become may not be what’s best for you. Do your best to better yourself, but recognize your limitations. Trying to force yourself into the mold of someone else will only lead to despair. Be content with who you are . . . be yourself!
