Lead Your Life to Success

Mar 14, 2008
What is the use of success in this world when you are not successful in the world after?
So oftentimes, even in business or in any aspects of life, man has been so preoccupied with things that in the end would no longer matter. Activities that only bring temporary fun and happiness are an unworthy endeavors in the long run. What matter is life after death.

It is never easy living in this lifetime. It is always a test of character and strength. One way to test character is an attack to your belief and value system. Many martyrs and saints have been persecuted because of unwillingness to compromise their sets of values even if a chance to live longer and success are its rewards.

Blessed Titus Brandsma, a Carmelite priest, martyr, educator and journalist was labeled, "The Most Dangerous Man" in Europe. He never let his values of the truth be compromised when the Nazis ordered all Catholic presses to publish the Nazi Ideology. As a spokesperson of the bishops at that time, he publicly and bravely denounced the ideology and asked all Catholic presses not to even print, publish or show support for this undertaking. For this he was brought in a concentration camp and was killed by lethal injection.

Like Blessed Titus Brandsma, many of the modern counterparts are worthy of emulation. These are the people who never allow success to go in the way of their sets of values but rather hold on to them with their strength.

One of them is Henry Hal Thomas, co-founder of Dallas-based Corban Communications.
It was hard for him at first to find his way to the top but he made it.

When he was starting out, his unwillingness to compromise his beliefs cost him his job.
In his days when he was being groomed to play an important part of the upcoming cellphone technology, a terrible test of character went his way. He was asked by his former company to randomly terminate five of his employees. After reflecting things over, he finally draw the right decision of not even doing the termination and informed that if the organization works that way, he was not even willing to associate himself with them anymore.

Of course, he ended jobless and obviously broke. He and his wife went back to Dallas from LA to do some thinking and searching. Finally ending up with the best possible choice there is, a technical consultant. Since the telecommunication industry is on the rise particularly cellphone, the first thing he did was link up with people who has the same interest and through this he was able to establish COM2000+. His company evaluates and assesses possible new cellphone sites.

Just within three years, the sales of his company together with his partner David Kaltenbach expanded rapidly in revenues. This made him prove that nothing comes in the way God if your commitment is headed to glorifying and honoring him.

Despite of his falling out with his partner at one time, they were able to continue what they have been doing because of the fact that they both see their company as an "offering to God" The name of the company, CORBAN, tells so. It is a term that means "offering."

The secret to his success: owing everything to God and being strongly committed to Him. Like all others, they have their own ticket to success. Hal chose to lean his back to the divine than something that is ordinary like money and friends. It is easy to say that the strength comes from within but the fact remains that it only comes from spiritual guidance. Moreover, knowing your life's purpose is truly important. Having your own mission statement is a blueprint to success coupled with perseverance, determination and commitment.

More than any material success, spiritual success is more permanent. And lasting success is only achieved if you know:

1. God loves you and offers a wonderful plan.
2. Man is sinful and separated from God. He cannot experience God's love.
3. Jesus Christ is God's only provision for man's sin.
4. Individually receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

The Christ-directed life is your best way to your success in business.
