What's your measure of success?

My favorite definition of success comes from the Bible, in the first chapter of the book of Joshua. Having just replaced Moses as leader of the children of Israel, Joshua has been given the responsibility of taking them on the final leg of their journey into the Promised Land. God speaks to Joshua about his mission, guiding and encouraging him. Here is part of what God tells him:

“Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success” (Joshua 1:7, 8, New King James Version).
