Looking for peace & happiness I'd suggest you try my Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ. He is the epitome of "good success." Now I can't assure you that doing success his way, that you won't endure trials & tribulations along the way. In fact, I can guarantee that you will. But he will be with you every step of the way & he won't lead you astray.
In fact, the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord. And if we stop leaning on our own understanding about life he promises to direct our path. Check out what the word of God says.
Proverbs 3: 5-6
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all of your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your path."
So where does morality come into play? Your morals & values speak about how you obtain success. Some people are outright ruthless & will do anything to get ahead. This could mean disowning someone or stepping all over someone to make it to the top. I've seen this happen all too often.
I'm reminded of a song that's out right now titled "All The Way Up" by Fat Joe & Remy Ma. The line that caught my attention was, "nothing can stop me". This kind of success is very dangerous because it's usually at the expense of your soul. But is it really worth it? I'd much rather obtain success God's way. Trust me there is absolutely no room for sellouts in the kingdom of God.
"For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul"
I know right now your soul probably doesn't really matter to you. Only fat pockets, comfort, & luxury. But the reality is that when your number is called you can't take any of this stuff with you. I don't know about you but i'd rather get my stuff the legit way on Earth & not forfeit my soul in the process. Just a little something for you to ponder. Morals & values matter a whole lot. This assures that you live a phenomenal life here on Earth & forevermore. So i have one last thought & scripture to leave you with.
"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".
By no means am i telling you not to be successful. I just want to make certain you're doing it properly. His word, his principles, his way. This is the only true road to riches in my opinion. Whether you're headed north, south, east, or west with God on your side you're bound to flourish.
As you go forward in your daily journey I extend love & peace to each of you. I pray that you find your "it" and that you OWN IT. That the chains of this world be broken off of you & that you walk in the light that God intended you to walk in.
With dedication & servitude
