When Success Makes Sense

By: jwilder, 11/15/2021

In my 20s I read a book about a man who would never give up. I don't remember the title, but I remember it was supposed to be a motivational story. Tragedy after tragedy came to the main character. But chapter after chapter he never lost hope. I didn't get it. All I saw was a miserable life and wasted effort. I probably didn't finish the book.

I dropped out of college, but I always found a good job. I tried to do well at work. I always tried to advance. But I felt my future and my stability were always in the hands of my employer. I was not in control of the projects I worked on and when or if I got a raise. I got laid off multiple times. Two companies I worked for closed shop. I just couldn't see striving for success when I had no control.

The point is I know striving for success makes no sense at times. But, seasons change. Hopefully there comes a time when you find something in your life that you long to accomplish. Maybe it's a dream you've had but you just couldn't see a way to make it happen. When the season changed for me, and I had found something I wanted to accomplish, my eyes were opened. I found something I can devote my life to, and now I need help! Success now makes sense.

Success makes sense when you find something that you want to accomplish and you decide to pursue it with all your heart.
