On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God.

 

--Psalm 62:7

 

Through the years, I’ve read a number of wonderful books on personal development, motivation, and success.

 

And of course, there are many definitions about what success really is. My friend, Christian author and speaker John Maxwell, gives one of the best definitions I have ever read. He says, “Success is knowing your purpose in life, growing to reach your maximum potential, and sowing seeds that benefit others.”

 

So according to Maxwell, success is knowing and growing and sowing.

 

Bible teacher and author Charles Stanley writes, “Success is the continuing achievement of becoming the person God wants you to be and accomplishing the goals God has helped you to set.” Stanley says that success is becoming the person God made you to be…the person God designed you to become in Him.

 

In our success-crazed culture, it’s important to remember that real success isn’t found in the label of your clothes, the brand of the car you drive, or even your title at work. True success is found in your character and in your commitment to what really matters.

 

It’s not fame or fortune, but the fulfillment of God’s purpose and God’s plan for your life that really counts!

 

true success is becoming the person that god has made you to be.
