Success is measured

Success is measured in my life by very different standards. I feel strongly that my priorities in life should align perfectly with my definition of success. Instead of feeling obligated by anything, I like to think of everything as an opportunity. Therefore, I'd like to share with you, dear friends, that it never took me long to realize that my success in life isn't measured in wealth or status. My life is measured by:

1::my joy (which God supplies)
2::what my closest friends and family think about me (they know the ugliest me)
3::my personal thoughts (which affect my attitude, which in turn affects my actions)
4::the moments I stop to listen and care about those who need it most
5::the things I give to others
6::the time I give serving, thinking about, encouraging, and loving people
7::but most importantly, it's measured by how much I love the Master

Be real. Be you. And if it's the last thing you do, figure out what you consider success, and spend every day of the rest of your life living it.
