Worldly success is often measured with money, possessions, and status. If you work hard you can be anything you want to be. NOT. You can be the best in the world. NOT. You can be master of your own destiny. NOT.
Hope is knowing success is the ratio of talents used to talents received. God given talents.
Define success by The Word not by the World.
The parable of the talents explains it best. Matthew 25:14-30.
Grace to you.
