I had to ask myself: what did succeeding look like and what did failing mean? My initial answer was failing was not being able to replace my income within twelve months. So then success was simply the opposite of that?
While financial security is obviously important, along the way to wellness I am learning so much about myself, the world and my Savior. Failure is starting to look like just not trusting God and His spirit inside me. Trying to plot, plan and schedule, and dealing with the anxiety and disappointment which all that often brings, is no longer necessary. So is success the opposite? Yes, but it is so much more. Knowing that I am in the will of God is the greatest confidence builder I have found.
