Are you successful? That is a question with many different answers. For the businessman, the answer may likely involve how much profit the company has made. For the missionary, the answer will probably tell you how many souls have been saved. For the mother, you may find that she raised decent children. The former addict will tell you how many days they’ve been sober. Meanwhile, the drug dealer measures success by attracting new addicts.
Whatever success means to others, you should not measure your successfulness by anyone’s measurement but your own. Too often, we allow other people’s perception of us to define our course in life. You should strive to be the very best you can be, reaching for YOUR definition of success!
So, are you successful?
