The Greatest Measure of Success

The greatest measure of success is found when one gets knocked down. Do you take reality as it is or do you continue to bask in your lowly state. Do you find within yourself the drive to get your legs back under you?

Do you have enough hope and belief in your own self to get up to face that which caused you so much pain. Trust me when you realize that your greatest teacher is the one knocking you down, you will begin to welcome their lessons.

That old parent, teacher, pastor, ex lover begins to shift from the expectation of love to the reality of something learned. Then one finds within themselves the permission to be disciplined, focused, and worthy to allow life to bring the good as well as the bad. For there is no endeavor worth taking that will not being a crooked path as well as the straights.
