How do you measure success? Is it by how much money you have? How popular you’ve become? How great your social status is? How much education and degrees you’ve acquired?
If what I mentioned are your goals, fine. But never allow anyone else to put the pressure of what they consider success on you. Set your own goals. Everyone will not be the academic elite. Most will not be famous or even Mr. or Miss. Popularity. God has graced all of us with a vocation, innate gifts, skills and talents. We were created for His good pleasure, not the world’s. Find the thing you love to do. Find the thing you get the most pleasure from doing. What is it that you love so much that you would do it for free? That’s probably one of your primary purposes. Then do it! If you can make a living from it, praise God! If not, do it for your own satisfaction. Success is improving, increasing, growing and being effective at what God call and created “YOU” to do. And do all to the glory of God.
