Popularity vs. Success

Standard

Joel Osteen quoted someone (he didn’t site his source or I don’t remember who it was) as saying, “Popularity is other people liking you.  Success is you liking yourself”.

So many people go through life seeking popularity to affirm they are successful.  Popularity does not equal success.  In fact, in order to be popular, most people must compromise their own beliefs and desires to others.  You can never be successful if you are only seeking to please others.
