How I Measure Success

The success of a man is not measured by his money or what his money can do for him. Success is measured by the amount of friends you have. If you are in a comfortable place in your life and you have a roof over your head you are on the right path in life.

Success to some people is to see how much money they can amass over a lifetime. Their money has done nothing to benefit others. Their money is stale and moldy from doing nothing but sitting around. Money truly is the root of all evil. Money controls and takes away valuable hours from a man. The man becomes abscessed with keeping his fortune intact and has lost touch with his family and friends.

If you had to deceive or take advantage of someone to get to were you are in life you are not successful in any measure in life. Success is treating people with the upmost respect. Success is being comfortable with who you are and knowing you did not take advantage of people. Give to charities that help people have a better life. Live the life that God wants you to live as that is the true measure of success.

Success is being the best person that you can possibly be. Take time to talk to people for they will enrich your life for many years to come. Your elders have a much clearer sense on the true meaning of success. If you are kind, gentle, compassionate, loving and caring you are truly successful in life.


My connection to God and serving God in my life is very important to me. Without God by your side in life anything you wish to achieve in life will not get done. God motivates us to our peak levels of success in what he has planned out for our lives.


1 : 3

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth the fruit in his season; his leaf shall not wither ; and wahtsoever he doeth shall proper.

2 Thessalonians

1: 11 – 12

Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness , and the work of faith with power:

That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
