- Reaping Season — Heavenly Blessings come through Human Hands
- Reciprocating Season — Blessed to be a Blessing
I define success as the achievement of a goal. On the way to achieving a goal, you must avoid being stupid and remain strong during the course of your struggle.
Success must be embraced because it is earned. On the other hand, luck and chance are not earned. How do you define success? What is a successful season for you? What have you done to be successful this season?

Yes, I’ve done stupid things along the way and had to humble myself. But I remained strong while struggling to achieve my goal to become one of the top professional baseball coaches in America.
Now that I have so much success and influence, I’m in a great position to use my success to serve others.
In our next blog, I’ll share why I’m significant.
