Success - What it is and isn't

Success is looking forward to getting home and seeing the people you love. Itís being mentally and emotionally free to share yourself with them and to be interested in them.
Success is being loved by the people you love.
Success is sitting down to pay the bills and knowing that you have enough money to cover them, this month and next month. Itís knowing that you have taken measures to ensure the financial security of your family in the event of your demise.
Success is knowing where to turn when it seems that thereís nowhere to turn. Having a spiritual life is akin to eating food and drinking water. Itís necessary!
Success is having interests or hobbies to call your own. Itís things that you personally anticipate doing again and again. Having interests gives you joy and peace.
Success is waking up in the morning and feeling good. Itís knowing that you eat right and exercise regularly and that you do everything you personally can to ensure continued good health.
Success is turning out the lights, slipping under the covers, and thinking to yourself, ďIt just doesnít get much better than this!Ē Itís whispering a prayer of gratitude to your Creator before you fall into a deep, restful sleep.

And here are a few things that success is not:

Success isnít calling home from work for the fourth time this week, apologizing because youíre going to miss dinner with the family again.

Success isnít hurrying into the house and hiding behind closed doors or the television set because ďAfter the day Iíve had, I need my space!Ē

Success isnít having all the riches in the world and still trying to figure out how to have more of all the riches in the world.

Success isnít physically going to a worship service and mentally writing a to-do list for when you get home.
Success isnít all work and no play.

Success isnít burning the candle at both ends and living on a diet of food thatís delivered through little windows.

Success isnít spending mental energy figuring out how to explain why your project isnít going to come in on time, why you have to miss your childís school play, why you canít pay the bill in full as you promised, why your eyes are red and your blood pressure is going through the roof, why youíre canceling your golf game, and why you just donít find any joy in living.

Success is directly related to having a balanced life. If any one area is out of sync, all the areas of your life suffer. Take the time to examine your life and take small steps to gain balance.
