Woods from Woody: Gravitate to success

By Woody Wilson

February 6, 2014

Have you ever noticed that people gravitate to success? They love being involved with anything that’s successful. Involvement is among the keys to any successful venture, big or small. When there is enormous involvement, great things unusually happen.


There can’t be too much involvement. It means taking part, participate, commit.


Sacrifices play a huge part, too. Some ways to be involved: give time, use talents, share wisdom, assist in activities/programs, and support financially.


Involvement brings challenges, which calls for determination and faithfulness no matter what lies ahead. The challenges faced are not for the faint of heart or cowards. However, there are too many spectators and not enough participants. Many gifted persons have opted for the sidelines and even bleachers because of failures, disappointments, hurts and scars.


If you have lived very long, you’ve been discouraged and fearful. It’s time to get off your “I shall not be moved,” and get involved in the fight. Your involvement could mean life and death for someone. Don’t treat it lightly.
