We are prone to judge success by the index of our salaries or the size of our automobiles rather than by the quality of our services and relationships to mankind.
– Dr. Martin Luther King Jnr.
Are you successful? What makes you successful? Are you sure? Then, hear this definition of success as documented by Ralph Waldo Emerson: To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have SUCCESS.
You are not successful until you have people who can attribute their happiness in life to you. You are not yet successful until you have successors. How many people have you helped? How many people can say, “If not for this man or woman”; how many widows can say, “Today, I live because God brought you my way!”; how many destitute and motherless babies homes have smiled; even once, because you visited? How many prisoners have changed their ugly lifestyles because God touched their lives through you? Why Are You Selfish And Self-Centred? Don’t Die Before Your Time Because of Selfishness And Wickedness! You’re created to be a blessing to others, not just your immediate family alone!
The foundation for a sure success is to help enough other people achieve their purposes in life. You’re sent as a solution to some people. Locate them and help them. You will not go down. You will be more blessed and more prosperous. I can bet my life on that! I cannot deceive you! I will always say the truth, even if you doubt me, my God will vindicate me!
SAY THIS ALOUD NOW!!!
I am an agent of solution! As the salt of the world, I’m meant to preserve and add flavour to life! I hep the needy! I help those who need my help and in the process, I’m richly blessed! I’m for legacy and not just for mere existence! I must contribute my own quota to life in Jesus name!
