The Secret Formula For Success

The Secret Formula For Success

I spent most of my twenties looking for the formula.

You know, the formula that got ‘those guys’ to where I wanted to be. Successful and all.

I went and got edumacated. But after I got the bachelor’s degree I still didn’t have what those other people had. People told me it was because I needed a master’s degree. So I got that too.

But alas, those other guys still had it and I didn’t.

So I read tons of books and followed their fool-proof formulas.

Still, nada.

I still didn’t have what those other guys had.

Somewhere around my thirties I started getting depressed. I gave up. I figured it was too late.

It was amazing how much better I felt once I gave up all hope. (smile)

That malaise led me to this conclusion:

There is no formula.

Every person has to forge their own path.

Sure, there are some principles that, if followed, can make life easier. But getting to where that other guy is. No. I’ll never get there. Because that is someone else’s path.

You and only you can hear from God regarding how to live your life. Listen to advice, but remember:

There is no formula.

Listen to God. Then do what he says. He has a unique plan for you.

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight… 1 Cor. 3:19
