Some measure success by the numbers surrounding them, following them, liking them, etc., either virtually or in real time, but often times it is mastering maliciousness and catering to callousness that will swiftly draw the loudest throngs while doing that which is right will leave you seemingly alone, but for just a season. You are not left out in the cold. There is no warmer company than the knowledge that you have done your best to do what is right. To seek to win at all cost will leave one impoverished of spirit in the end. Victory is the fruit of the pursuit of what is right. Temporary titillation may bring about brief and fleeting jubilation, but it is persistence of character and perseverance of a loving spirit that will bring about the perpetuation of meaningful, lasting adulation.
