Success is not something you pursue.  What you pursue will elude you.  Kind of like that butterfly you can’t quite catch.  Success is something you attract by becoming an attractive person. – Jim Rohn


Success has never been an external thing.  No matter what kind of house you get, cars you drive, or members of clubs you belong to; there will always be someone who has more than you.  When you pursue these things, you will never be satisfied.  It will never be enough.


Success is an internal thing.  For more get the eBook:

    Pointed, practical advice. There’s an old saying, “Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are.” We are the product of our associations, so we have to guard them well! That’s in keeping with this piece of timeless wisdom: “Bad associations spoil useful habits” (1 Corinthians 15:33, NWT). We need to set up bodyguards (as Michelle Holmes calls them), bouncers guarding the door to the night club of our inner peace and lasting success!

    This is a great way to break down your circles of engagement! I was just thinking on this topic the other day. I can think of so many peer groups that I fell into and grew out of over the years. The challenge, of course, is often recognizing when it’s TIME to grow out of your peer group.

    For me, the current challenge is identifying and associating with those “ahead” of me so that I can put myself on their level and grow into their peer group.

    Thanks for the great word!
