A close cousin of this mentality is the pragmatic thought process which identifies success as “whatever works”.
|Are you on the right path?|
I’m as guilty as the next person of choosing a direction because I think it will work, or because I’m seeking material gain. But, my own inconsistency doesn’t blind me from the truth that I am sometimes wrong, and there IS a better path. Sometimes, I just need to write this stuff to remind me of what my spirit knows is true despite what my heart may tell me.
Consider these three reasons why success is not always what we think:
- Today’s success often forces me to mortgage tomorrow’s opportunities.
- Success in this life may very well mean failure in the next.
- Personal success gained at the expense of others is ultimate failure.
It is better to have a little (or to fail) but to have a recognition of the greater things in life. True failure is thinking I am successful, when in truth I’ve compromised all I claim to believe.
