One of the greatest misconceptions many Christians have is about the true definition of success. What does success mean to you? Living a successful life goes beyond being popular and having a huge amount of money.
Purpose is the true measure of success. The world defines success in terms of fame or how much influence you have among men. God defines it differently. He defines success according to the purpose He had in mind when He created you.
If you can find out the real purpose for your life and you are able to accomplish that purpose, you will be truly successful. It doesn’t matter whether you look successful in the sight of men or not. What matters is that you are successful according to God’s parameters of success.
