Charles Stanley discusses Achieving True Contentment and Purpose in this solid resource, Success God's Way. Avoiding the cliches of positive thinking, the author offers a sure strategy for successful living based on this biblical definition:
The rest of the book helps us understand and apply these two basic concepts - who we are and what we should be about. While the writing is engaging, the scriptural examples are very familiar and a bit worn. But then I would not expect Stanley to venture far from the authority from which all true success principles are derived.
Success is the continuing achievement of becoming the person God wants you to be and accomplishing the goals God has helped you set. (p. 3)
