Either Failure or Success Can Destroy – Wisdom Unplugged
Wisdom – the final frontier to true knowledge. Welcome to Wisdom-Trek where our mission is to create a legacy of wisdom, to seek out discernment and insights, and to boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.
Hello, my friend, I am Guthrie Chamberlain, your captain on our journey to increase wisdom and create a living legacy. Thank you for joining us today as we explore wisdom on our 2nd millennium of podcasts. This is Day 1060 of our trek, and it is time for our 3-minute mini trek called Wisdom Unplugged. This short nugget of wisdom includes an inspirational quote with a little bit of additional content for today’s trek. Consider this your vitamin supplement of wisdom for today. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget.
Today’s quote is from Jose Silva, and it is, “Do not allow the first failure to destroy you, nor success to ruin you.”
Either Failure or Success Can Destroy
Failure and success are often times two sides of the same coin. There is such a slight difference between the two. When you fail at something, you may be very close to the desired success. In the same manner, when you succeed, even greatly, you are always precipitously close to failure.
If you let it, failure can defeat you and destroy your desire to continue on. In the same manner though, if you push so hard for success in one area of life, like finances, and you ignore the other areas of life, then success can utterly ruin you. In all areas of life, be balanced and practice moderation.
You can be so focused on gaining the whole world that you lose your soul. You lose the very person of who you are. You lose the relationships that are so important. Invest in being a success in all areas of life – spiritually, relationally, mentally, emotionally, economically and physically. It is then that you will be successful without ruining a part of your life. God’s Word provides us with the guidelines and precepts to achieve true success.
Matthew 16:26 says, “And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?”
