Many people strongly desire success. Some even pray for it. If this is you, listen very closely. One of the most unrealized truths about success is that success carries weight. You MUST be physically, mentally and emotionally strong enough to carry the weight of success or else that which you desired most will crush you. The late rapper Biggie Smalls said it best, ‘More Money, More Problems’. Success draws attention to you and, depending on your level of success, equal amounts of compliments AND criticisms. Some are ready. Most aren’t. If you’re wondering why the success you desire is just outside your reach, it could be that God knows that you’re just not quite stable enough to handle it.

These 2 scriptures provide the greatest paths to success

James 4:10 – Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.

Joshua 1:8 – This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success
