Society denies what it cannot measure and is often of the mindset that money is the answer to every problem, but money in a fool’s hands leads to wasteful spending and the ability to lose it at a faster rate. While money affords you certain comforts and opportunities in life, setting your sights on money alone will still leave you dissatisfied and craving something more.
Success is more than having certain powers, influential personal contacts, a relentless desire to get ahead and money at your disposal. These are only temporal measures. Success is simply completing whatever it is that you set out to do.
Observing spiritual principles and maintaining personal integrity may not be considered success by society’s standards, but it is what gives us strength when we are weak, encourages us when we stumble and rewards us when we are faithful.
