How do you measure success? Does the amount of money you have compared to others mean you’re a success? Does living in a very large house determine success? Does having a more expensive car than any others around you mean you’re a success?
These may be worldly or short-term measures of success, but they’re not Godly or eternal measures of success.
Success is not a comparison of how you rank among others. And it’s not necessarily the accumulation of wealth. Success is fulfilling what God created you to do. Fulfilling it day by day, season by season, challenge by challenge, blessing by blessing. We are all in the process of whom we will become. Embrace your setbacks, disappointments, and delays. Know that they’re a valuable part of success. Challenges don’t happen to you, they happen for you. No matter where you are along your path of life, if you had attempted to be here earlier, you wouldn’t have been prepared. All of your life experiences, both challenges and blessings, are part of God’s plan to get you prepared for what’s next.
Having the courage to be the person God created you to be and fearlessly going wherever God sends you = SUCCESS.

Yet, if we let our busy days that are too full for exercise take over, there is often a BIG price to pay in the end. And often, that price is our health.
I think we could all agree that if something is important enough in our day, we will find a way to get it done, right? Like dropping the kids off at school and picking them up at the end of the…

On this day in 2009, I was diagnosed with late stage lung cancer. I was told without treatments I had eight months to live. With treatments, I was facing a five year survival rate of 5%. Over the last five years I’ve learned I’m not a statistic, I’m a child of God. I have chosen to focus on the path He has provided for me and to never look back. With great gratitude, I look forward to today, tomorrow, and all of 2015.
