What Success Really Means

We try to measure it in numbers.

Define it with titles.

Step on the scale.

Climb up the ladder.

We chase it until we’re exhausted.


What does it really mean?

I look through the sacred pages one day looking for an answer.

And I find, all the way through, it really comes back to one word.


Not results.

Not awards.

Not exceeding expectations.

Just obedience.

We are servants who bring our Master joy when we do what he asks.

No more, no less.

Success isn’t as complicated as we make it.

And it’s attainable. For all of us. Every day. Wherever we are.

Even this week.

Doesn’t that make your heart feel freer?
