Which road are you on?

How do we measure success? Is it by how much money we have? Is it by how many people we know and have around us? Is it by our job title or how many degrees we hold? What is your definition of success?

My definition of success is how much I have helped and made a difference in someone’s life . My reasoning behind this is because money can deplenish and go away, people and friends can come and go, job titles and positions are not promised, and degrees are just paper. However, that feeling you receive when you genuinely help someone and change their lives is something that can never be taken away. This is a feeling of purpose.

We all should strive to be successful but not at the expense of hurting others. When we help each other, we are all succeeding together. Surround yourself with those who have the same ambitions and desires as you. Surround yourself with people who push you to be greater. Most importantly, surround yourself with people who want to make  positive changes in their lives and others.

Positive thinking and energy leads to great accomplishments. Change the way you think and watch how your life begin to change.  When we allow God to take control of our  lives, we sometimes think our situations have changed; failing to realize that he has given us the ability to see and think positively regarding that same situation!

I challenge you today to encourage and inspire someone to do better and take them with you to experience the road to success!

One thought on “Which road are you on?

  1. Your words hit home… as long as I lend a helping hand and not look for something in return.. my soul sings. I may be the one in need one day. We should build each other up instead of breaking each other down!!

    Nice read!!!
