Success is an evolution, not an overnight achievement; a journey, not a destination; an unending project, never a single, simple accomplishment that stands alone unrelated to the past and disconnected from the future. Success is a never-ending process of going through good times and bad, pleasure and pain, ups and downs, ins and outs!
Once you have reached the mountaintop, don’t stop! Until every hungry person in the world is fed; every crying person is comforted; every depressed person has cause to smile again; every discouraged person is encouraged; and every lethargic person is motivated –don’t stop possibilitizing. “To whom much is given, from him much will be required,” Jesus taught. Success carries with it a wonderfully heavy responsibility to use this new power as a lever to shift the world a little closer to God! Now is the time not to luxuriate, vegetate, or procrastinate, but to dedicate! Now you have a power base. Use it! Now you have influence. Wield it! Now you have success. Share it! On the peak catch a peek – a new vision, a new dream, a loftier goal! Don’t stop at the top!
