Successful People Around The World Have One Thing In Common

Do you know ordinary people accomplishing great things? I do and am motivated by watching them change the world.  After years of friendship, I found one thing in common in all successful people.

To begin with, Bill and Lori are 2 excellent and highly educated doctors who left their home with their 4 children to begin a children’s hospital in rural East Cambodia (clinic pictured above) to serve the most underserved population of children in the country.

My sister-in-law with her 3 children.

Second, is someone that I am proud to call my sister-in-law.  She is older than me but starting nursing school with a classroom of kids!  Determined to finish her nursing degree to help others, she is overcoming all to go back.


I’m also reminded of young faith filled believers such as Cody Bobay beginning SOULCON which is a community improving the lives of thousands soon to be millions of men. Helping men overcome lack of self discipline, immorality, and lead their homes the way that men were created to be!

Ming Kia works hard all day, 6 days a week running the bakery she began herself “Cinnamon and Coffee Bakery.”

Lastly, I’m reminded of my newest Cambodian friend Ming Kia who runs her small but busy bakery in a small town by herself with only hope and faith to carry her on each day while struggling with a crippled hand.

What do these people have in common? Overcoming!

“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.” —Martin Luther King Jr.

Overcoming pain, anxiety, fear, through their faith.  Its how we handle the pain that counts.  Do we endure or give up? I know these examples personally and they all used their suffering and pain to make themselves better.  They never gave up when things weren’t easy or didn’t go their way and you can too.

You were born for great things.  Its very possible that you are not living to your greatest potential.  Today, be an overcomer.  Endure well and pray hard.

“A ship is always safe at the shore but that is not what it was built for.”

Albert Einstein.

What goal are you pursuing?  What goal have you not yet attained due to obstacles or pain in the way?  Take this poll and let us know where you are at in accomplishing your goals in life:
