I believe that I can accurately assume that we all want to be successful. Isn't that why we're here? However, have you actually stopped to think about what success would really mean? I have dreams and I want to be successful but most of the time I have a fear of success because, I worry about how it will change the dynamics in my family.

I have some friends who opened their own medical practice and the wife has often told me that they had a better marriage when they were broke and didn't have anything. Now with the practice her husband works all of the time and when he is home he's exhausted. She said when they go out she can't enjoy herself because he is so tired. She has also said that when they didn't have money they spent more time together and figured out how to make the most of everything. Now they have money and no relationship.

That scares me! Can we have it all? Or do, we have to trade one for the other? I love my family and don't want to end up like that. However, we struggle so much with not having enough money we don't get to enjoy much outside of ourselves either. But we have each other and we spend a lot of time together. I don't want to lose that.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a success story here at MBC where you have been able to be successful in business and family? If so I would love to know so I can embrace success instead of fearing it because, I think that is much of what is holding me back.
