The Key To All Success – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.
Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase wisdom and create a living legacy. Proverbs 16:16 says, “How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver!” We are on Day 1640 of our trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget.
Today’s quote is from Mahatma Gandhi, and it is, “A burning passion coupled with absolute detachment is the key to all success.”
The Key to All Success
Success manifests itself in various ways, and to some extent, like beauty, it is in the eye of the beholder. Most of us think of success in financial or monetary measures, but that is only one indicator of a successful life and certainly not the most important. You can be successful in many areas of life. Some success measures that come to mind are family, ministry, work, business athletics, health, and finances.
Being successful in one of these areas indicates whether you will be successful in another area, but correlation does equal causation. You may become highly wealthy from a worldly perspective, but if you neglect your family and it falls apart, success is undoubtedly diminished by a more critical failure. To be successful in any area of life, you must have the passion for being successful and yet personally detached from that success. You must not allow your passion to be successful to compromise your integrity and morals.
As a Christ-follower, your success must be grounded in the precepts for living found in God’s Word. All success will ultimately come from God, and it is He who we should attribute our success to. That being said, God still expects us to do our part to be successful. As an analogy, God does feed the birds of the air, but He doesn’t throw the worms into the nest for them. So it is with us; we must have the passion for succeeding but never compromise God’s Word to do so.
Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the instructions Moses gave you. Do not deviate from them, turning either to the right or to the left. Then you will be successful in everything you do.
