I received my weekly email from Work is Not for Sissies that I subscribe to, and want to reflect on a part of it today and remember:"Successful people are successful because they make smart decisions and
do the right things on a consistent basis" Glenn Shepard
he goes on to state...Those principles include answering quickly when opportunity knocks, being willing to take risks and fail, not putting the cart before the horse, investing in yourself, and thinking bigger than you can even visualize.
I believe when we realize what the right thing is to do before God, we are making the "smart decision" and therefore are successful. Success in and of itself doesn't come from just making smart decisions.
