What Is Success?
by Dr. MaryAnn Diorio

God made us with a desire to succeed. When we love someone, we want that person to succeed. If you are a parent, you want your children to succeed. If you are a teacher, you want your students to succeed.

But the challenge with success lies in determining what success looks like.

To most people, success means making a lot of money. But when money becomes the sole arbiter of success, trouble lies ahead.

So what is success?

Let me give you my definition of success. Success is fulfilling God’s plan and purpose for my life.

When I fulfill God’s plan and purpose for my life, I will have everything I need.

God gives each of us a dream. That dream is His express desire for our life. That dream is not only our life work but also our means of earning a living.

Years ago, the Lord spoke these powerful words to me: “Your vision is your provision.” As you pursue God’s vision for your life, He will provide you not only with the means to fulfill that vision but also with the fruit of pursuing the vision.
