Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.
October 1st -another ending or a new beginning
Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is the doing, not the getting; in trying, not the trump. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all the we can be.
I like to think of my self as a successful person. I’ve pretty much done all that I ever set out to do and haven’t stopped trying either.. I was able to raise and support my family after the early death of my husband. I’ve been able to work for what was needed. I could retire and enjoy the slow life after working many years.
Nothing came easy, but I had goals and met them. I hung in there when many would have let go. And for that I can thank all my family and friends who encouraged me along the way.
I’ve never felt like I was a failure at anything I set out to do, because I knew that with the good Lord’s help, I’d make it through the bad days and come out a winner.
My faith had a lot to do with that and without I’m not so sure I would have made it. But knowing that I had someone beside me helping me every step of the way made a lot of difference in my life.
Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
Just at a time I really needed it, a friend introduced me to a Bible Study series on line that really helped. Another friend, invited me to go with her to a ladies Bible study she attended. With the help of the wise words of these teachers I got through it all.
If you are looking for encouragement, the Bible says it all. It’s not me that deserves the applause, but the One who is my reason for being that deserves all the credit.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.
