The measure of your success is directly linked to your purpose. Too often we use people as a barometer when nothing can be more wrong. Be careful when comparing your success with another’s. If their calling is to the world and yours is to the community, what makes them more successful than you? They’re not. A fork makes a great eating utensil, but it makes a lousy comb. Your success is paralleled with why you were created.. your purpose. Don’t strive to be the next Martin Luther King, Jr, Bill Gates, or Oprah Winfrey. The best YOU is more than enough. Embrace your purpose, and you will experience what TRUE happiness and contentment really feels like!
2 Corinthians 10:12 – We do not compare ourselves with those who think they are good. They compare themselves with themselves. They decide what they think is good or bad and compare themselves with those ideas. They are foolish.
