What is your measure of success. A high paying job, a big house, fancy car or perhaps fame and fortune. This may be how society labels success, but true success comes from within, not from others.  Jesus told the rich young man to sell all that he had and come follow him. Sounds a little extreme, but what I believe he is really say is look within and find out who you are and what you can do to make the world a better place. Caring and loving family and friends is true success. Money without relationships is hollow and empty. James Taylor said it right in his song. “Shower the people you love with Love, show them the way that you feel…”


Some succeed by accident

others by default

some by entitlement

But those who truly

make a difference

in this world

work hard

follow their heart

know who they are

do it for themselves

not to please others

knowing that success is

all about what you give

rather than what you can get
