How Do You Define Your Personal Success

Written by Joseph Rooney


Most people want to succeed, but whose version of "success" isrepparttar bestchoice? How do you measure your success? How do you know when you've really accomplished something that counts?

Success on other people's terms may only mean frustration for you, and doingrepparttar 148610 so-called "right thing" just because you've been told it'srepparttar 148611 right thing won't help, either. If we measure our success by goals that others think worthwhile instead of by our own personal standards, we will wind up in trouble.

Personal growth and fulfillment must start withrepparttar 148612 centered self, and depend on clear personal values and self-knowledge if they are to be sustained. Measuring our success by other people's values prevents us from recognizing many of our own significant accomplishments.

A Motherís Day thank you- Mamma whispered softlyÖ.

Todayís is recognition of Mothers Day and let us remind ourselves that nothing can be more strengthening than a mothers love for their children. And no more so than Maryís love for her son Jesus. I often wonder what was Mary thinking when she watched her son being crucified that day uponrepparttar 148428 cross? Was she thinking ofrepparttar 148429 times Jesus was a child and his feelings were hurt each time they move from city to city? What aboutrepparttar 148430 time when one of Jesusí closest friends betrayed him and he had to walk away fromrepparttar 148431 relationship she was there also with a hug of support? Or maybe she was thinking ofrepparttar 148432 time when Jesus couldnít understand why death had to come in life? Each time she was there to offer him strength of a shoulder,repparttar 148433 love of an unconditional heart and a word of comfort.
