Success = Purpose Fulfilled


I think we all have a wrong notion of what success is. There is nothing wrong with success itself. The challenge and the void are in what people define as success. That is why Joshua 1:8 goes the length of defining the success being adduced to. It is a GOOD success. It is an integral part of the GOSPEL. It is an integral part of God and who He is. There is no one truly associated with God and is not successful.
"Success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure." (Tony Robbins)
You cannot be associated with God and not be successful. That is an impossibility. Read through the scriptures and you will not find one example of such. Success is all about fulfilling God’s purpose for your life. Success is not an accumulation. It is making a difference. It is leaving a mark. It is being all one was created and endowed to. That is a success.
"A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself. What a man can be, he must be." (Abraham Maslow)
The problem with our small minds is we are too carried away with a comparison. We value ours only based on how it compares with others. The truth is we are all different and here to fulfill different purposes. Our place is to complement one another, not compete. That is the essence of the Apostle Paul’s message in Ephesians 4:16; Romans 12:3-8 and 1 Corinthians 12:4-31.
"To be truly happy, you need a clear sense of direction. You need a commitment to something bigger and more important than yourself. You need to feel that your life stands for something, that you are somehow making a valuable contribution to your world." (Brian Tracy) 
The question we will all answer on the last day is, “What did you do with all you were endowed with? Did you do your best? Our place is to prepare to answer that question?”
