Measuring Up

Very often in life we measure success by what we have, our achievements, our roles, our relationships, the approval of others or how we measure up to someone else. Success can mean different things to different people, but what we see as success if often intertwined with our values.  When we live according to our values, we find purpose beyond the daily grind. Regardless of your personal belief system I think most people can agree with this verse “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Wherever we put weight or value, that is where we place our attention, time and energy (our heart).  Where is your focus?  How are you measuring success?? Does it line up with the values that you wish to live by?? If not, what needs to change, your focus or your values? True contentment and peace does not come from being “successful” in as much as it does from doing the best we can in accordance with those things we treasure most dearly.
