I hear people all the time say, “If only I were them.”
Successful entrepreneurs with multimillion dollar businesses, professional athletes with contracts worth a thousand times their salary, celebrities with big houses on the hill and a closet worth more than their house.
But I’m not here to bash on other people’s success. Quite the opposite actually. I applaud their hard work and talent.
The problem is that their success is one dimensional — it’s just material.
Do you know what’s even more rare than $1 million idea, freakish athleticism, and a chiseled six pack?
A healthy marriage.
Time with your kids.
The discipline to sit down and read your bible.
Living addiction free.
Being able to sleep at night.
For most people, the word “success” is synonymous with wealth or fame.
But that’s only one part of it.
What about success spiritually? After all, what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world, yet loses his soul?
And what about mental success, creating the discipline and habits in life to achieve great things?
What about successfully raising a family?
They’re less successful than you know; you’re more successful than you know.
