A successful life is not necessarily to be of fame, popularity and public acceptance. This lasting happiness naturally comes when you make up your mind to use all that God has given you to help others, put a smile on people’s faces, and helping the less privileged, just as Andrew Carnegie did in the latter part of his life.
There is only one way to inner happiness and success. It all begins with a personal relationship with God and obedience to the life principles He taught. Television and novels have always been depicting the lifestyle of famous people as that of continuous pleasure, power and perfection.
But tragically, the opposite is often true. Fame can be burdensome, demanding and even cruel. This is easily proven by the alcoholism, drug addiction and even suicides often found among those in the limelight.
Remember A successful life is not necessarily of fame, popularity and public acceptance.

Andrew Carnegie who lived between 1835-1919, never really experienced true happiness despite the huge empire of wealth he acquired. He entered into the realm of real happiness and success in 1912 when he finally turned to philanthropy as his occupation.
As a result of this encounter, he preferred to use all his wealth to help others and die as a poor man. King Solomon with all the wealth, fame and position summarized life as ‘vanity upon vanity all is vanity’. In his backslidden state, he cried out,
‘Therefore, I hated life’. I, therefore, submit to you at this point that a successful life is a happy one.
