My biggest success is not something I do but someone I impact. (Greg Groeschel, leadership speaker)
When we dream of success, we’re most often thinking of winning a contest, earning an award, accomplishing a worthy business venture, and the like. Groeschel suggests a more significant value in success: impacting people. Awards and prizes are great, but how much greater it is to see the success of those whose lives we’ve influenced in some way.
[The purpose of] the Proverbs: to teach people wisdom and discipline, to help them understand the insights of the wise. (Proverbs 1:1-2)
