Chapter 10, Page 1, Book 20

Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.

William Feather

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.

Zig Zigglar 

I like to think of my self as a successful person.  Ive 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.  Ive 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.  

Successs is going from failure to failure without loosing enthusiasm.

Winston Churchill

Ive never felt like I was a failure at anything I set out to do, because I knew that with the good Lords help, Id make it through the bad days and come out a winner.

My faith had a lot to do with that and without Im 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.

Dont let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.

John Wooden

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.

Keep the faith and hang on.

I agree - what might be successful to me is not the same for everyone - it is personal.

At first glance, I wouldn't call myself a 'success' ... but reading this, yes. Yes, I am.

Shaking my head at all the times I turned down offers to join my friends' Bible study. Their support and encouragement has meant so much. Indeed, what would we be without our friends.

I think we are all successful every day we get up and do what we need to do for that day and keep plugging on. And definitely having faith is a key point for our lives!

Yep, I have had a mental picture tattooed in my mind for years of the monkey just hanging on. That certainly does picture success in such a vivid way.
