Journal Entry

How do we find success? What is the definition of success? Do we define it by accumulated wealth? Does it really matter how many material things we’ve acquired after we die, or is it more important to leave a positive legacy behind? Success is a journey, not a destination. In order to succeed, your desire for success must be greater than your fear of failure. I have vowed to be successful at doing what is right. I want to be successful at helping people, bringing joy to their lives, and by helping them to get their lives back on track. The reward for a work well done is the opportunity to do more. Just like they say, success only creates a new goal and is never final. I will be successful because I have traveled from failure to failure without losing the enthusiasm to succeed. We should know that obstacles are necessary for success because victory comes after many struggles and countless defeats. Each struggle, each defeat, sharpens our skills and strengths, our courage and endurance, along with our confidence and ability. Each defeat is an opportunity to move forward and succeed in the face of seemingly impossible conditions, to show others that the mission can be accomplished successfully. I close with this sentiment…Never be afraid to do something new because amateurs built the ark but professionals built the Titanic. Need I say more? We are more than conquerors and can succeed at anything we put our mind to.
