Part of the process ♥

Success. It's something we're all capable of having, when time and effort is present. Something in our lives, that as humans.. we yearn for. I know I for one dislike failures. I'm sure most of you would agree, right? In all that we do, we strive to be the best we can be; whether it be in our relationships, our jobs, or our goals & aspirations in life.

I remember being extremely frustrated and bitter, whenever I failed in something that I did. I often questioned why I failed, and would give up in a heartbeat. It definitely took me awhile before I realized that all along, I've been using the wrong ruler to measure my successes. "Be in the world but not of the world." If I continued to measure my successes according the the world's, I'd not be striving for true success. I'm not saying it's wrong to want to strive for the best, but it is through honouring God that you acquire true success. "In everything he did he had great success, because the Lord was with him." (1 Samuel 18:14)

So seek Him first above all things, with all your heart that trusts, praises, and loves. Chase after Him, and your successes will follow. Remember that true success, comes from doing His will.

I just saw a friend's facebook status today reading: If you want to succeed, double your failure rate. I thought that was interesting.

And yes, success is definitely subjective. In the end, God only calls for us to carry out two of His commands :)
